OMG! OMG! I met up with STF! Which according to this blog, the last time we saw each other was Sept 2010!
J and I got tickets to go to see England play Italy, he'd never been to an England game and after Porto, I was on various priority lists so I applied and we got lucky!
Wasn't the plan at all but he messaged me randomly when I was on the tube on the way up and Yay!
I do think of those boys often, how they saved my sanity when everything was spiraling and so, so bad that last term of uni and I miss them.
England won too! 3-1 which made the very long day well worth it, I and J, JA and J's brother have applied for tickets for the Euro 2024 quarter finals so fingers crossed that we get them and also at least one of them is an England game!
What else is new? Work have now decided I need to go in 3 days a week and start at 8.30, which isn't great because its a very long time to leave the dogs and everyone else gets to stay with the two days.
But on other hand I'll be finishing now at 3.30 on Fridays so there's that at least.
I went to a Flyball friend's wedding end of September and had a great time dancing and drinking.
I've been given hearing aids to make up for covid having stolen my hearing, they're horrible, ugly and I hate them but wear them like a good girl!
I recently worked my way through the extended LOTR films on at the cinema, one each week. Mother is back in November, The Brat is spending about half the week here and half at his GF's and life cruises on much as it has done but it has really been the absolute best year i've had in a very, very long time!
