10 Years Today Since My Dad Passed Away (24th May 2002 - 24th May 2012) Pt 2

Friday, May 25, 2012

Yesterday i wrote a blog, remembering the 10th year Anniversary of the death of a beloved family member my Dad (John), since yesterday, i met up with my Mum (Mary) & Sister (Helen).

I had a text from Helen, saying that she could pick me up from my flat at 12.15pm to meet mum at 12.30pm, i was in the Hairdressers at the time, having my Hair done coloured **Red (for passion & flames)!!!!.

So i texted her back saying that i was in the middle of having my hair done, & that afterwards i would be getting the bus up town to go Online, & then said what bout 12.30pm in Morries Cafe.

She replied cant do Morries Cafe, what about 12.30pm outside the Guildhall steps, i then replied ok Chickky (my nickname for Helen), i knew when i sent my reply, that she would be busy getting ready for her Hospital Appointment (to do with her Diabetes etc!!!!,).

After about an hour of being pampered Hair-wise (having Dye applied & being timed Dye-wise - as to how long the Dye would take to do its work!!!!, for said colour done) - (**see above for details) & reading 1 magazine, Having a mug of Tea, it was time for me to have all the Dye rinsed out, & my Hair **Shampooed, Conditioned, Indian Head Massaged etc.

Once that had all been done, (see above **for details), it was time to have my final piece of pampering done, my hair Blow Dried, & Straightened, the finished product was finally done!!!!.

So i paid & then left to catch the 10.50am Harrowby Estate Bus, up to town then i got my Gas & Leccy Top - ups, & my TV Mag etc with some Cash Back, headed towards the Library for said Online Blogs, after an Hour of Blogging etc, i then headed towards WH - Smiths to see if my Agatha Christie Book/Mag was in, so got an offer of two Books for £5.00 instead, paid for those, then went to Boots to go & get weighed, (had hoped to have gone down again). emoticon

I got my wish, & now i weigh 20stones 1lb, (i've lost a total of 9lbs so far yippee!!!!), my next stop was to get around to the Guildhall steps & wait for Mum & Helen, which i did do.

We decide as it was a Mega!!!! Mega!!!! hot Day!!!!,!!!!, that we would go for a drink & something to eat, our 1st Destination, was a Pub called the Welby Arms, Mum went to the Bar & ordered 2 Bottles of Diet Coke with (2 Glasses containing Ice & Lemon), in each for Helen & Myself.

Whilst Mum had a Glass of White Wine, we were going to order some Food, But the choices on the Food Menu, didnt look very tempting to us. emoticon emoticon emoticon

We then decide that we would go to our 2nd Destination, which was a Pub called the Farriers instead, Mum & Helen had previously been there before.

Mum with her friend (Jennifer), & Helen with her Fiance (Johnny), this was my 1st visit to this Pub, my 1st impressions were that it was a nice Pub, with friendly Staff & a very good Atmosphere (the kind of Pub were you could go with Family & Friends, & enjoy yourselves). emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Mum went to the Bar & ordered 2 Bottles of Diet Coke with (2 Glasses containing Ice & Lemon). emoticon emoticon emoticon

A tall jug filled with (Tap Water, & 2 Glasses), & a Glass of White Wine for herself. emoticon

Whilst we were enjoying our various drinks, a Waiter came & brought us some Menus, so that we could choose what we wanted to eat.

As we were deciding what to have, i thought because the pub was nice that i wud like to come here again, for another meal on a different special occasion eg (Birthday etc). emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

There was a huge choice on the menu of what you could have to eat, Helen chose to have a Tuna Sandwhich, (with Salad on the side), + a bowl of Chips too. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Whilst mum told me that there was an offer on the Main (cooked) meals, eg (get 2 Main Meals for £10.00 + also get 2 Desserts for £2.00) which i thought was a fantastic offer!!!!. emoticon emoticon

Mum chose to have the Gammon Mixed Grill, (which included Gammon, Eggs, Pineapple, Peas, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Chips etc). emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a good day thus far, can't wait to read the conclusion. Hope that the RED for your hair turned out like you wanted too. I have dyed mine red at one point and it was awful.
