The week of the to do list part one.

Getting winter woolies for Michigan in H&M
Why has it taken me so long to find these crisps?! Super super yum.

I brought a notebook with the intention of having somewhere to write all those half posts you get in your head at the most un-blogging moments. Yet when you find the time to blog, they've have vanished. This week while I haven't been at work i've been bored enough to plan out a lot of posts in my head, especially while sitting in coffee shops, all this extra time makes you realise how slow time can really go when your not busy - or when your waiting for something.

This week has been spent tackling what was left of the to do list, predominately it was filled with boring money things, buying last minute bits, getting some clothes, being interrogated in M&S [of all places] when buying dollars through to living in Starbucks and Costa and wishing the week away. I even popped into work - even though my uniform was literately falling apart you have to take it back [yeah it's fit for the bin] and being the nice person I am I took them some chocolates as a thank you for the leaving pressies - if you remember anything about the moaning I did about work - well the lady that did most of it, who gave me most of the talk how you can't trust men etc etc just blanked me the whole ten minutes I was there. Yeah friendly place. Yet I know she'll be eating most of the chocolates. But when I wasn't sorting things out I was poking the museum gardens with my old point and shoot camera, nosing in shops and even popped into the cinema to see The Help.

Mentally i've been getting my head into gear - saying that I don't think the scale of emigrating will  sink in until Joe has returned to work, even so it might feel like a holiday for a couple of months especially with no working allowed just yet. I know I'm ready in myself to do this and that's the biggest and I guess one of the most important things to have achieved at all this week.

  6. The museum gardens are a lovely place if you have a spare half hour - you totally forgot it's right near the city centre especially with all the old abbey ruins.
