It’s probably a terrible way of looking at things, but I just wanted April to be over and done with because May is MIAMI MONTH (!!!!), but there were a few notable points.
(More) Holiday Planning
I have been very forward thinking and have combated the post-holiday blues I know I’ll get when we’re back from Miami by booking another trip before we’ve even gone. A few weeks ago, I was alerted to a great Virgin Atlantic/Delta deal to a variety of different places in America. We spent too long thinking about it at the time and the deals vanished overnight, so I set up a Google Flights alert for the same locations, and what do you know – up popped the deals again. This time, we didn’t mess about, and booked ourselves a week in… TEXAS! I’m so excited – I haven’t been to Texas before, so I’ve spent the past few weeks bookmarking all the places I want to visit. It’s not for few months yet, so I have plenty of time to prepare. Woo!
Since seeing John compere at the Greenwich Comedy Festival in 2015, I have become an obsessive fan of the Elis and John show on Radio X. I call myself a PCD, a double retro-oner, and other things that only people who listen to their show will understand. In that time, I have utterly fallen in love with John (and Elis of course). I bought tickets for his show in Aldershot but the snow scuppered my chances of getting there so thank goodness for a second chance in Basingstoke.
The Darkness of Robins was spectacular, and the only reason I haven’t blogged about it is because I don’t know how to put my feelings into words. The best I can say is that for a stand-up show, I did an awful lot of crying. Team Robins all the way.
We had a random night away where I had a facial, we ate some lovely food, and we watched fast cars from our room. Always fun.
Every so often, Husband goes away for work so I get a bit of alone time. With him off in South Africa for a week, I managed to fit in some shopping (where I found my dream Lulu Guinness Vanity Case in TK Maxx), lots of Sex and the City watching, and a multitude of face masks. I don’t like him to be away too often, but it’s good to have some time to myself once in a while.
It’s not great when you start the month with someone fraudulently taking money from your bank account. It gets worse when the same thing happens to your credit card the following day. I really don’t understand how this happened, and my bank was equally as baffled, but considering I don’t have any other cards, I was pretty stuck for money for the first week of April (except for a random £10 M&S gift voucher). Thank goodness Google Pay still worked, albeit for payments under £30. Stupid fraud!
