Today has been weird, though. I left slightly later than normal for work, and was met with severe delays. Someone died on the line at Tile Hill, and after being diverted to Birmingham and then waiting in New Street station for over an hour, I decided to turn back for home as I had no idea when I was going to be able to get into Coventry for work. It was stressful, and very sad to think of the person on the line - I was a passenger on a train a while ago that struck someone on the the line and it was awful. I got back to Leamington at lunchtime, had lunch with Nic and enjoyed my impromptu afternoon off. The sun was shining and, for the first time, it felt like Spring might be on its way:
River Island bird print dress and silver shoes from Topshop
...and one where I'm not squinting
Obviously for most of the day (and right now, in fact) I was wearing a cardigan. Spring hasn't sprung quite yet, after all. The really brutal cold seems to have passed, however and when the sun was shining, there was some warmth in it. On our way to the library I could see the first signs of Spring peeping out of the ground - crocuses:
Anyway, I'm off out tonight with my friend JB. She was given tickets to see the Lightning Seeds play at The Assembly and invited me along. I'm hoping for some fun mid-90s nostalgia and a bit of dancing, then home reasonably early to bed as I'm working in London tomorrow. And from there it's a hop, skip and a jump to the weekend, the pub, some sewing, sleeping late and having fun. See you all then.
