Every work day morning I meet my friends Darren and Trish for coffee before we venture onto the third floor and begin our hellishly demanding days. This morning - my day off - I went to meet them with Milly as they've never seen her. We got to Kingston quite early (7am) so I decided to take Milly for a stroll by the river. I've never seen sleeping swans before - but by 'eck - I did today!!! They sleep on the steps that lead to the water's edge, and about 5 of them are huddled up with their heads under their wings, with one awake swan standing guard.
The awake swan-guard was huge and both Milly and I were quite concerned...I didn't fancy writing a piece on here about a swan attack!!!!
Milly also saw buses and road sweeping vehicles, delivery trucks, window cleaners and lots of other early morning town centre activites. Trish and Darren loved her (I knew they would!) and even the owner of the coffee shop said how cute she was!!! She sat nicely by my chair whilst I had my two cups of coffee and then we set off home again. On the way home I called at Dan's old school to collect her A level certificates, and had a nice chat with the school receptionist who told me what a lovely girl Dan was!!! I did know that for myself but it's very nice when someone else confirms it for you!!!
Last night I went to the cinema to watch the new Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts film - can't remember what it's called - but it was very good. My colleague that I went with fell asleep, but I stayed awake through the whole movie and can highly recommend it.
