Things you have to look forward to

I’ve been pretty down in the dumps for the last few weeks, I think mainly as I’ve just been working and not doing anything of note with my spare time.

I’ve booked two weeks annual leave during September, which consists of two short breaks. Swanage in Dorset for 5 days, including visiting Monkey World, the Tank Museum, the Swanage railway, Corfe Castle and other bits.
Three days in York, including visting the Railway Museum.
Perhaps squeezing in the London DiS meet in the middle.

Also the football season is starting up again, I’m not that enamoured by going to see Crystal Palace, but i’m going to try and get to a lot more non-league games this year.

A few gigs later in the year with the nephew too.

What do you have coming up?

Hope you’re feeling better soon ynot. Enjoy the trips! And TANKS.

I have a couple of weddings coming up, one in Glasgow next month and one back near Manchester in November. In October I’m up in Loch Ness to do the marathon there, and will have a couple of days too to hobble around. Then in November I’ll hopefully be off to Baltimore for a work trip, which I’ll then extend to visit friends in NYC. Should be furrrrrrrrn.

Got a wedding next weekend where tons of my ATDs will be there - some I haven’t seen since I moved away a year ago so really looking forward to that.

Going to meat the lovely @rich-t on Tuesday and stuff my face with pizza.

Think I’m going to go to Costa Rica in December when the weather gets crap.

Always look forward to seeing my nephews but sometimes the reality ain’t all that :roll_eyes:

Generally I just look forward to 5pm on a Friday at the moment

Sounds great, I know what you mean about just looking forward to 5 on a Friday. But the last two weeks I’ve felt pretty ill and shattered on a Saturday, laid in and totally wasted my day.

Not this weekend.

I had the best fish and chips of my life on the seafront in Swanage - so do that while you’re there

I’m already planning that and looking forward to updating the DiS fish and chips thread.

An ATD is coming up next week for a couple of days, plan is to climb Ingleborough one day and visit the Yorkshire Sculpture Park the next, which I’ve been meaning to visit for years so that’ll be good. Other than that, very little, not done much to find employment which unfortunately will need rectifying at some stage.

Got Cult of Luna, Damnation Fest, Der Weg Einer Freiheit and The Chemical Bros coming up back end of the year which all should be good providing I actually go to them!

Got a load of nerd cards on the way, so hopefully on Sunday I’ll have a big pot of cold brew on the go and meticulously sort them and put them away in the correct order. Might even put on some music. Can’t wait.

I’m actually looking forward to using my new cards at penoid events, as I haven’t been going to any recently because I was only just keeping on top of my anxiety generally and I couldn’t face them. My brain pills have sorted me out now and I’m looking forward to getting back OAN IT
