The Journey Home


My journey home tonight was delayed by a couple of hours, so I am thankful to Trendy Carol and her hubby for seeing to the dogs at short notice.
I managed to get The Walking Dead on my iPad but most of the action was set in a cave so I couldn't quite work out who was chasing who.
Also the zombie growling was a little too loud for the other passengers to stomach so I had to turn the volume down.
Not good if you want to enjoy the zombie apocalypse at its best
I'm not an avid shopper but I did have time for  mooch around Waterstones ( where I bought three books and birthday cards) primark ( where I bought some woolly hats..) and a posh kitchen shop ( where I bought a frying pan) 
When I met my friend I noticed that he studiously ignored the fact I had bought a frying pan
" Only You" he remarked shaking his head with a sigh when I finally got it out

There is nothing quite as lonely as the last train home.
The carriage ( even on a Monday night) has the vague wiff of alcohol and tiredness

    2. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/

  4. What's wrong with buying a frying pan I want to know. All the cooking you do I would guess you wear them out at quite a rate .

  8. One never has too many frying pans. I have five or six, all different sizes and use them often.

  9. A good frying pan is a wise purchase!

    I think you were meant to have someone to come home to. Not everyone needs or wants that. But knowing there's someone at home makes the lonely trips home less lonely. Forgive me if I'm stating the obvious.

  10. I'm very familiar with last trains. When I worked in The City, I often had to work late, and would only just catch the last train down to the south coast. When I eventually arrived, the busses had all stopped running, so I had to walk several miles home in pitch dark; often being stopped by Police, who wanted to know what I was doing (in pin striped suit, bowler hat, brolly, etc).

    Am glad you made it home with purchases intact and the family well cared for by kind Trendy Carol and her hubby.

    Yes, only those who cook know when a frying pan needs to be replaced or you need a frying pan that is sized differently from those at home. A wise purchase.

    Sleep well!

    Hugs!

  13. I can’t even begin to describe my excitement about ver that new frying pan. Can’t even begin.... But, hey, I came back to Spain from Las Vegas with an absorbent pad for under the kitchen drain board.

  14. I love a crisp new book for a journey.

    I have a frying pan we bought at a car boot sale in Mallorca nearly thirty years ago from Blue Peter's John Noakes !!!

  15. On the contrary, I love an empty-ish late-night train! Glad you found some interesting stuff on your trip. :)

  16. Ah, it's interesting when you hear some oddball thing like that, somehow zombies wouldn't be the oddest thing one might hear on a bus.

    And a fry pan? What, are you supposed to shish-ke-bob your eggs, or something? :)

  19. Do you realize there's a 12 word phrase you can communicate to your partner... that will induce intense emotions of love and instinctual attraction to you deep within his chest?

    Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's instinct to love, worship and look after you with all his heart...

    12 Words Who Trigger A Man's Love Response

    This instinct is so hardwired into a man's genetics that it will drive him to work harder than ever before to to be the best lover he can be.

    Matter of fact, triggering this powerful instinct is absolutely mandatory to achieving the best possible relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

    ...You will immediately find him expose his heart and soul for you in a way he haven't expressed before and he will distinguish you as the one and only woman in the world who has ever truly fascinated him.
