Edward - cookie heart

New Telly Discovery!

Yesterday was quite pleasant. I was only at work for three hours, because I had to leave shortly before 12.00 to go and pick Lisa up from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (the old one). She'd gone in for A Procedure (not sure she would forgive me for disclosing which!) which required her to be under heavy sedation so she wasn't allowed to be released into the wild on her own. ;)

I got the train down and managed to find her without any trouble, thanks to asking for directions when I rang up to confirm the collection time. The receptionist helpfully informed it was the Green Zone on the fifth floor. Which was just as well, because I'd never been to QEH before and it's frigging massive. Clearly those weeks of placement as an OT must have been good for something, even if it's only being able to navigate hospitals. :P

Anyway, we got a taxi home and then sat and watched telly for five hours. Lisa has bought some DVD box sets recently and rather than inflicting Alias on me partway through (she's on series 3), we decided to give Love Soup a go... Collapse )

Following that, at around 6.30pm, Lisa went up the road to get herself some chicken, and I went back upstairs to await Paul's return home. We had steaks with baked potatoes and salad (Paul) or butternut squash (me) for dinner, and we caught up on the new series of X-Factor. I know full well this will make me angry again, but as it's the last series ever I thought it would be remiss of me not to snark it. :P

And that's that. Thank anything, I have a week off next week. Spring cleaning is on the cards, as well as a trip to Oxford to see jackiesjottings, assuming the trains aren't completely useless...

Whilst I'm around, here's some more stuff...

And now for another bit of embroidery...

Okay, I think that's everything. Now to check train times.
