09:09:09 09/09/09... Interlude



Evening everyone.... blimey I am over 13 hours late in posting this ... all I can say is blame me being a wage slave and Claire over at Little Piece of Me.......

So what was I doing at this momentus time (09:09:09 on 09/09/09) in history???... Well I sneaked out of the office on the excuse I wanted to go to the bank before it got too busy .....

The sun was shining (yes I know how unusual for Manchester).... I sidled into a den of ill repute house of a million calories... bought a breakfast and sat in St Ann's Square on a bench and ate it at precisely 09:09 (can't vouch for the seconds sorry) in the sunshine....... ah it was such a guilty pleasure indeed .......
to be accurate on the time I took a photo of St Ann's Church clock .......

whoops try again!!!
darn it the clock had stopped ... how typical!!!
honest I did sit out in the sunshine in Manchester eating a McDonalds breakfast at 09:09 on 09/09/09

what I did notice whilst I was sat sitting there though... despite all of Daddy Papersurfers protests about not coming ooop Norfff ......he was actually delivering goodies in the North West of England in his ickle white van ... he may try to deny it but as we all know the camera never lies.....

so after my guilty pleasure went back to the office and I had a telephone conference with colleagues in London ... I then headed off to have lunch with a my mate 'H' in St Ann's Square.. then I went back to the office for another telephone conference with colleagues in London (my god 09/09/09 was in danger of becoming a Groundhog day lol) fortunately my all day meeting had been cancelled (thank lordy for small mercies!!).

This evening I met up with Claire from a Little Piece of Me and we went to see the 'Dream'... now the Dream is something I have only seen whilst hurtling up the M62 from a distance .... plus Claire I have not met up since we exchanged Chaperonship of Olga The Travelling Bra on her travels oop Norrff.
(click here for when we met up).

The Dream is a dream .. and even more awesome indeed when you get close to her.
Claire and I chatted with two lovely ladies who have been instrumental in getting this former colliery site into a lovely peaceful place to be .. they have loads of plans they want to get started (such as a tea room... a garden of remembrance, a place for loved ones to remember those who lost their lives in the mines from 1906 to 1992...and a place where memorabilia can be displayed and so on) ... they showed us around the area of the former colliery and told us its history and oh btw they are both called Marian.. wtg girls you are fabulous :-) (they have a new website launched today but can't find it as yet....)

So what was I doing on 09/09/09?? I was earning my salary.... eating bad bad things for breakfast in the morning sun, enjoying some late summer sun, meeting up with good friends and meeting new people who are doing a fabulous thing... all in all 09/09/09 will be a pretty great day to remember :-)

Sounds like you had a lovely day fraccy sis... and I've no doubt you deserved it! (If anyone from the office happens upon your blog just tell them you have a twin...)

I see DP's delivery van there and you know... I always did think he fudges a bit. It was the flip (or was it the flop?) that gave him away as a fibber. Good thing he's got TG; no telling what trouble he'd get himself into without her.

Wow! You were so late, I was beginning to think this

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/south_of_scotland/8244663.stm

might have something to do with it....I thought I was going to have to make you a celebration cake, phew!

Oh, to only have shared with you a hash brown. (sigh)

Very nice place there, it'd be keen to have tea...hope they wouldn't expect me in a dress though. Don't have the veins for hose, dontyaknow.

Blimey - what a full day!! [and full stomach apparently - tsk].

Lovely to meet up with the loverly Claire, lovely to see my tax pennies allows you to pop out of the office whenever you want, lovely to see that that clock has stopped as well so perhaps I'm not dead, lovely to see my transport business is obviously a huge success and is expanding at a rate of knots ...... in fact, everything is LOVERLY!!!

*skips away spreading happiness and a little spittle*

I think I was snoozing at 9.09am. In my defence I did have a disturbed night the night before! I'm glad you had a nice time.

I think Maccie D's breakfasts are a guilty pleasure - you know you shouldn't eat them but don't they taste good when you do :-)

Dear Frac I had a lovely 090909 ('tis ok I put on my time sheet I was absent for however long ... mind you they do owe me some hours I can tell you lol)You had a great time I see having a lie in with Johnny ... ooo lucky you :)

yep you could have knocked me down with a feather when I saw his livery on that van ... it was a bit worrying thinking he had actually ventured Norff!!!

hee hee GW yes it was a long old but very enjoyable day yesterday ... If I was ever contemplating doing the wedding thing again it would be great to do it on a magic numbered day ... I guess I will have to wait until 10/10/10 now .....

I think you would look fine and dandy as a waitress we could provide you with lyle stockings if that would help??? lol

70steen said...
