Catching Up... [Mar. 15th, 2005|03:46 pm]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |happyhappy]

Apologies to one and all for not being around on teh interweb for soooo long!!

Since moving day (the last time I posted) we have been settling in, sorting out furniture, going to gigs, clubs, parties, theatre, college, work...blah di blah...

And I don't have internet access at our new flat; neither have I had any wish to visit the Mothership since it was getting VERY difficult before we left...

As it is, she's now in the front room teaching a lesson and I've snuck up to do laundry and pick up a few things - parents are both busy so I've dived onto the computer... I'm still being bitched at for the tiny things I've left behind - right down to stupid little word documents on her computer *sigh*. She can't deny me the use of it though - she knows I need it for college work.

Anywho, Mike went back up to London yesterday to pack up his things and collect the kitty - he's coming back on Saturday and will be shifting stuff down here later in the week. Yay! We are still waiting for the black leather sofa we've ordered from Dingles (House of Fraser) to arrive too - will be fun getting that in, as twill have to be manouvred through the front window...

After I saw him off on the train I did an impulsive thing with the keys I've had kicking around from my old flat - the one in Stoke with the ex-boyfriend... And for the first time since Octover, actually wrote something! The following jumble of lines are in honour of the drain which swallowed them up so happily:

Goodbye Old Keys

With a happy little PLOP!
I dropped my keys
Down into the waiting drain
And smiled. I'd kept them awhile
But I won't be going there again.

Goodbye old keys,
I have a better place now -
New keys new home
With a new relation
Step-by-step in the right direction.

And then, crossing the Plain
I gave the creme egg in my pocket
To a blanket-buried tramp outside KFC.
He needed chocolate more than me.


..........................................

For the moment, I'll post here when I can, but don't expect it to be as regular as it used to be for a while...

*hugs to all*

Welcome back, honey.
I liked your little poem about the symbolic and cathartic act of disposal of old keys. I have very similar tendencies myself and often get quizzical looks for such acts, despite their obviousness being, well, obvious.

On an entirely separate note, Wifeage™ and I will be in Bath from the 12th to the 14th of April, returning on the 15th, and will be available in the evenings at this stage. Maybe we could arrange something mutually beneficial. It would be lovely to meet up with you if at all possible. Advance notification, though - our available funds will be tight at this stage in the masterplan.

*Hugz*

Argh!! Not sure if that will be possible as I generally leave for work at about 9pm and start getting ready 'round 8:/

I'll have a proper looksee in diary and schtuf to check what my schedule is for college/theatre/etc and then text you as soon as I've found the card you sent - I think it's in a box in the back bedroom with everything that I planted about the tv in my old room;)

*big hugs back*

If you eMail me your cellphone number again (I sat on my previous handset, breaking the screen if you recall), I will text you back straight away, thus providing you with my number.
We hope this finds you both well.
