Drove down to mum's yesterday, after dropping Yorkie at work. It took me a lot longer than normal though, as when my new little Micra goes over 60 moph it starts to judder!!! Not happy about that. I think it's the tracking / balancing. It feels exactly the same as my Mondeo did after the wheels got fucked with so I'll have to book it into the garage before we go anywhere else.
Still, apart from that I had a really nice day. Seeing Mum's always good. I should go down more often. We had a little trip into town to do some shopping, had a "light lunch" when we go back (the kind of meal I would make me and Yorkie for tea!) and then went visiting. We called in on Colin and Joyce. Colin is my mum's cousin, and just about the only relative she has aside from me. They live near my old high school and I used to go round sometimes after school, but I haven't seen them for years. It was great to see them again. They are both in thier 70's now, but still look so young and so well. They were asking about how I'd been, didn't I look like my mum now I was all grown up, and wanted to know all about Yorkie (I told them the good bits, and missed out the peeing on the kitchen floor, lol) and when were they going to meet him.
After that we went to see mum's soliciter again, and the final stage of the house becoming mine was done. And as of 10 to 4pm on Tuesday 6th Dec 2005 I become the legal owner of my house. All very grown up!
I couldn't stay too long after we got backs to mums' I was hoping to be able to pick Yorkie up from work, and had I been able to safely drive the car at speed on the motorway, I would have made it too, but at 60 mph, it's a long journey! So I had to text him and tell him to get the bus. Had a last coffee at mums and set off. I did manage to get home about 20mins before Yorkie, but I would have been over an hour late to pick him up had he waited.
Lelly and Coops came round about 8 and we curled up to watch Sin City. They loved it and Lelly wants to go and buy it now (It is a good film, I recommend it). After the film Yorkie started to show Coops some of the hack n slash fantasy RPGs we've got on the PS2 and me and Lelly - strangley - sank into eldless stories about cats.... Dunno why. But it seems we have some common ground when it comes to cat stories! I think it had more to do with the fact that neither of us girls were drinking, and we had to talk about something, lol! And maybe the smoke had something to do with it too, who knows.
