Catch-Up Time...

Hiiiiii guys. Its been a hot minute.

Between blogville idols, and my new series and my real original life that just got extra extra busy, I haven't really had much time to update and gist you all about the most random things like i usually do. So i thought, hey, lets catch up!

Well, its not winter in london but neither is it summer, because this weather isn't exactly what i would call summer. I think the weather is soo confused to the extent that it doesn't even know what time of the year it is, so it just decides to throw some nice autumn rains in the mornings, some rubbish cloudy weather in the afternoon and some extremely hot sizzling sun in the evening, i'm like.... what in the world am i supposed to wear through the day?


anyway, if they tell you you're as unpredictable as the british weather, go and look for your grandmother to pray for you..

So on to randomness, there was this day, I got on the bus and there was this elderly black couple near me though they weren't sitting beside each other, they were sitting opposite each other. At the next stop, an elderly asian couple got on too. There were no seats as such that they could sit next to each other, but luckily for them, as they were about to sit, someone got up, so the man sat down and told his wife to come sit beside him. Oh it was such a beaurriful sight, you could still see the love, the way they were both acting.

The man sitting next to the elderly black woman got up shortly after, so the woman called her hubby too. Fred, fred, fred. The man might have been hard of hearing, but i think he was just probably ignoring her.... FRED! FREDD!!!! The man looks at her and raises his eyebrows (meaning yea? can i help you?) The woman patted her seat with a loud bang and said 'come sit hia'.
The man shook his head and muttered something, at this point i was nearly laughing oh. The woman was getting agitated and loud now, 'fred come sit nexta me' - she sounded jamaican. Anyway after much commanding, the poor old man, who by the way is half this woman's size, got up, and at this point, the bus driver was going round the roundabout, so you can guess that the poor man nearly toppled over! After like 5 minutes of the man grabbing to the rails for dear life, he sat next to his wife, who in turn, started beaming at everyone with a satisfied grin.... well I was smiling to myself too at this time. I can imagine the amount of bullying that goes on in that house...

My friend, Dimples (from this
post) is around so we've been tripping the whole of west end. I banned myself from shopping but well, i broke that ban today in many ways. This weekend I am going to babysit about three kids, (something i actually enjoy doing), I have a whole weekend of fun planned for them too, picnics and stuff, you know trying to live up to the aunty title, but with a handful of kids, I doubt I will be blogging this weekend, so that's Man/Woman put off till next week.

What else, a lot has happened to me, life-changing things, but hey, its not exactly EVERYTHING i can blog about :) but no, marriage proposal wasn't one of them, if it was, I would kiss-and-tell. The things that happened were for the better though, and yes, I am thoroughly enjoying myself.

Have a fabulous week / weekend!
