The 29th & 30th; What are the chances?
The 29th of August. It has been a day of sitting in uncomfortable chairs - in the car and in the wheelchair. My butt and my back hurt SO MUCH.
Got up, got a blog post done, then got a message from Jo (wife of Russ, transplant patient who came to my gig) telling me they were going to see a recording of a new show, Hypothetical, hosted by Josh and James. Well, as it happened, so were we! What are the chances?
We arrived at Pinewood about half one, and were just about to tuck into our sandwiches in the car when we realised the rest of the people in the car park were leaving their vehicles to form a queue, so put the food away and got over there.
We had got there with plenty of time to spare, and because of the wheelchair, we got wristbands 1 and 2. Guaranteed good spots! Russ and Jo eventually turned up, and I was worried they wouldn't get in, but they did, just. We sat and waited in a large marquee, until we were called to move to the studio. It is a huge place, and you really need to know where you are going because it would be so easy to get lost. We were put on the end of the second row, so I'll probably be caught on camera at some point. Hopefully I don't look ridiculous/terrible.
I can't say too much about the show, but it was a lovely surprise to see Kiri, Suzi and Nish as guests, and at the end we had hugs. It's a really fun show; I'm sure it'll do really well.
Drove home. Two hours. Loads of pain.
The 30th of August.
Fuck, I'm wearing a knitted top and a cardigan but I am still cold. Yet when I was outside today, I was really quite toasty! Does not make sense.
I have had a very nice day! This morning, I wrote about yesterday, then played with the new floofs. I got a call from the new homing officer, Deb, on Tuesday night, telling me about two couples who both want two kittens, so this morning I spoke to both of them, and I have viewings this evening and tomorrow!
This afternoon, I went to Yorks to meet Sophie for coffee and cake and to give her the crocheted Max. We sat for nearly two and a half hours, talking about what we're both doing now, the British university/education system, politics, Bake Off, people from school, the way we are glad we are not at school now...we could have gone on! But now I know she is here four days a week, we will hopefully do it again, because it was delightful.
