I was hoping to be posting a few good things up here lately, but plans have fallen flatter than a flat thing and life, well you just couldn't make this up.
While in town a few weeks back I decided to advance buy a ticket for our local fireworks display. I'd not really been out to anything in ages, and hoping for good weather impulse bought a ticket. Now £6 isn't a fortune, but it's still money I'd rather not waste, so I wasn't too happy to come down with a cold just before the day of the display. It was at that stage where I really didn't feel like standing out in the cold so I gave that a miss.
Around the same time I was very lucky to win a pair of tickets to a session at the O2 ATP Tennis Finals in London. Was so surprised and pleased, especially given the tickets were worth £128 and over a thousand people entered the Facebook competition. As it would be too much for my anxiety I mainly entered for Mum, who was really looking forward to going. Unfortunately she fell ill not long after I did, and although was hoping to feel better on the day, decided it was too much. It was the right decision to make, but she was really looking forward to it, it was too late to pass the tickets on to someone, and she's still not over what she caught.
So I don't have lots of fun things to blog about today, and I'm sitting here writing after a long week or so of cooking, shopping, work, then needing to take some time out myself as I had a short period of feeling under the weather.
I might not be officially ill at the moment, but it's freezing outside so I am hunkering down with my blog and a hot drink. Hopefully Mum will be back to normal soon (and my nephew who has had a cold as well) and we'll all be enjoying things a bit more. To cheer myself up I've just pre-ordered the new album from Olly Murs. Hopefully it will be as brilliant as his new single Wrapped Up is.
