Manic Monday

It's time for Manic Monday again, hosted by Lisa. Great questions, as usual.

How did you celebrate your last birthday?

I took myself for a trip on the Heart of Wales railway line, to the pretty old town of Shrewsbury, a few days before my birthday. Or was it a few days after? I can't remember. But what I do remember, is having the most hideous travel sickness ever. It was a small, two-carriage train, with two lavatories, both of which were in constant use, due to the large volume of elderly people on the train (thanks to free train travel), armed with flasks of tea and coffee. As I joined the queue outside one of the toilets, I suddenly announced, 'aaarggghh, I'm gonna puke. Now!' Luckily, the guy queuing ahead of me was waiting to fill his dog's water bowl, and handed me the bowl. I barfed in his dog bowl and have never felt so embarrassed in my life!

What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?

An expensive pair of walking shoes. Well, I bought them more for practical reasons than fun. I don't have much money, so I tend to spend wisely, rather than on frivolities.

What would the child you once were think of the adult you have become?

The child I once was, would look at the adult I now am, and say: 'what a boring old fart!'

I don't think you're boring.

LOL. That was funny, but I don't think that the child in you would have said that!

Happy MM!
