    Hello lovely people :j
    Whoop! Happy New Shiny Lovely Fresh Start!
    Yep, it's a fresh start alright - maybe I should have called it that, not "travelling on" :rotfl: too late now, but the thought is there.

    Unbelievably, the SB for the Norwegian holiday have tracked, though the Wilko delivery hasn't ... since Norway is about a million points (I exaggerate) I don't really care.

    Three year railcard has been renewed :eek: I didn't get the benefit that first year, but since then it's been invaluable. My current one expires tomorrow :o but this replacement *might* arrive before my trip to the British Library next week. Even if it doesn't, the 3 year discount is still worth having.

    I was in London yesterday - another British Museum exhibition, which was *so* interesting. Bit too blowy on the street, though, it did occur to me to worry about gusts blowing roof tiles and then queuing at A&E ... not a useful way to go, after all! But window shopping at Heal's was worth the wind :rotfl: some very lovely things were seen!

    Today ... more work on the border at the front, that's exposed by the fence being blown over. And my accounts :( these are now a matter of urgency. Expect much swearing, metaphorically speaking.

    Mr Goldie renewed his railcard last week, he's had his money's worth out of it.

    It's just over 2 years until I can get one - can't wait!

    Even though I could only use it for 2 years, not the 3, it's paid for itself over and over again, it's been fantastic. And I've just had an email to say my replacement card has been despatched! That's service.

    YouGov survey done.

    An hour's work in the front border done - because its so easy to access, thats much more effective than in the back garden, hurray.

    I'm currently admiring the Trespass sale - it's all a bit different from Primark :rotfl: but I might as well buy quality for Norway - there won't be any easily accessible shops in most of the places, after all :D

    Liverpool Derby on TV tonight. Both teams have fans within the family....

    Lovely new diary and great news about the Norway booking.

    We have only done 1 cruise, ship only 700 people, a Baltic cruise and we loved it, had hoped to do a Norwegian Ffiords a while back, but they would not accept me because I was under investigation for a health issue, had a couple more since then, so hoping that later this year the latest will be resolved and we can book (fingers crossed smiley needed:D)

    I hope the fence repairs not too expensive, blustery, but no damage here:D

    With everyone else on the winter gear. Finally bought a winter coat in November and it's a proper one with decent insulation. So much better. I was an idiot for not doing it years ago.

    Haha. I used to live in Liverpool, the derby days were always a good time.
