Rebel Rebel

I was listening to Rebel Rebel by David Bowie on the radio this morning and thinking how grateful I live in the Uk to allow such things to take place. This was on the back of the news of Prince Harry and Chemical Ali coming in from the middle east.

Chinese New Year

I had been invited up to a friends for Chinese New Year in Manchester. I had booked the Friday off as A/L anyway so took advnatage of a lazy day and picked a friend up from work@4. What should have been a relative easy journey, turned into a two hour marathon just to get around Oxford. We should have been there by 7 at the latest we crawled in at 9. We still managed to get to Sam's chop house is a great place to eat and we had a really nice meal even though I was really tired from the travelling. Even the waitress staff(Dina) was really good and we ended chatting to her for a while until her boss told her off for nattering and not serving.

After being generally lazy and catcing the rugby in the pub. We spent the afternoon preparing the meal, in fact I stayed out of the way as my contribution and acted as dogsbody. The food was divine 8 various dishes including lamb, beef , chciken, fish etc It was a great evening with freinds of freinds I had heard about and never met and 0thers was a bit if a catch up. I am a light weight so I slunk off to bed just after midnight, it seems the witching hour is my down fall.

Two blog entries in two days, it does make a difference having a computer handy. Anyway prob going off to the Chinese Quarter to watch the parade TTFN

Saying Goodbye

Some say it's a new chapter as friends split up and move their seperate ways. I stood on the quay side in Portsmouth and said goodbye for the last time. My friends who have been together for 13 years have gone their own ways, she has gone to live in London and he is returning to Ireland in the next few weeks. I am still not sure how I feel about it, except confused. We and they have been through so much it just makes me sad that they had to call it a day, esp as I have the feeling one or the other I will loose touch with. Boo hoo..... esp Karin I don't think she will ever know, unless she reads this. This is all to much I am off
