The One About Lunch...

Yesterday I was a 'woman what lunches'!  I had the day off and M asked would I like to meet him for lunch so off I went to meet him at work (nevermind that it was an hours driving in total, it was worth it).  It was nice to actually sit and take some time out together - don't you find that although you live with someone you're always doing something, or everything has a purpose and very rarely do you take some time out to enjoy each others company???  Well yesterday we only went for lunch at a little cafe, but it was nice having a meal out and time to talk :)

Which brings me on to today, and again I went out for lunch.  One of my friends at work asked did I want to go with her to the pub over the road. Despite having my packed lunch with me I still said yes, because I very rarely get asked for lunch at work and thought it would be nice to spend some time with the girls away from the office (and in the sunshine!)  We had a lovely lunch with girly chatter and gossip - and it really made me realise that I'm going to miss some of the faces from work when I leave in three weeks time.  I was only saying to M the other day that I don't have that many girlfriends to go out with, my best friend S living in London makes it more difficult nowadays for regular meet ups, and it was lovely being one of the ones asked to lunch today(I only realised when we got there that not everyone was asked).  I think its a shame really that we never socialised outside of work much while I was there.  So I'm hoping that I'll make some lovely new friends at the new place (not that I will forget the old ones - we're already arranging a meet up) and try to be more proactive in arranging more socialising :)

J, me & H


Today I saw three Eddie's, can you believe it three!!!  Karen Emma, Jade Amy (seen before) and Ruby Louise.  At the moment its rare on my journey to work even seeing one, so three is a bonus!!!

A bit of an aside now... but sometimes I get an idea about what I want to blog about, then I write it in my head (generally while I'm driving), does anyone else do this or am I slowly going mad????

I always have things in my head... I guess that's a good thing, better than not :) I sometimes forget things and so I will always keep ideas in my blackberry, so when i need a story it's there!

I totally blog in my head. And then I can never remember what I wanted to write when it comes to getting it down. I'm sure I am much more intellectual and considerably wittier in my head :D

Thanks for your help yesterday - you did help me sort out the google problem which I couldn't figure.
I am so the same in the car :0)

No you're not! Lovely post!

I write in my head all over the place: when I'm driving, ironing, cooking..
I do go back and write it down in a notebook later - that's when I make it sound the way I really want it.

You obviously have lots of ideas for posts!

I write in my head all the time too - so perhaps we are all a little bit mad. I get frustrated when I can't manage to find the time to put the words down.

I have the same problem as Alison, I knew it was in my head at one time but when needed - its gone. Socialising is the ONE thing I miss about working full time lol
