up north

another early saturday morning attack of the killer-non-gallstones caused me to sleep in way too late to do anything useful with the day and i ended up getting a much later train to newcastle than planned. the train filled up with people returning from the royal easter show and my privacy was invaded by a rather rude woman with her even ruder sons. they kicked me in the shins and trod on my feet all the way to woy woy while their mother just fed them show bag fodder and ignored their behaviour. i was glad to see the back of them when they got off.

k8's party was quite fun considering i only knew miss e, k8 and their parents (who i've only met once before). plenty of good food, good wine and interesting people. today we went on sightseeing tour of newcastle - i have not been up that way for years and i had forgotten how lovely the beaches are up there. the train trip back was uneventful and i didn't have to share my seat with any rude people!

k8 has very kindly left her old mp3 player in my care while she is overseas (she and her boyfriend have bought themselves an ipod) so i've spent the evening working out how to use this new toy. i have filled it with some of my favourite songs and my discman can take a short holiday.

tomorrow i'm off to leura and katoomba with my mother. i have to be on a bus by 8.15am so i better get off the net and off to bed. goodnight!

a 3 saturday followed by a 21 sunday, which when averaged out is 120% of the RDDHA. yeah!
