I am such an ignoramus! Or naive... Take your pick.

On the train I sat next to a man because he had a plug socket I could use for my phone charger.

As I had to ask to use the socket (as it was in front of him) conversation was sparked by me.

He was very interesting - from New Delhi working in Glasgow.....

We exchange phone numbers and facebooks, because he sees me using Facebook and I assume he wants more local friends having moved recently to Scotland.

2hrs later he asks "so are you married, have a boyfriend...?".

THEN the penny drops!

It's quite nice to think someone would be interested. Perhaps this dieting think has made some difference... Been a long time since I've been chatted up. So long I no longer recognise it.

Note to self: drop in boyfriend reference earlier in the somewhat unlikely case that the situation might occur in future.  Not sure I used "we" very often either in my stories now I think about it. That'd be a good idea too.

Start of Term and feeling GOOD!

Nearly 2 stone lighter, and fairly organised already, I am looking forward to the start of term!

Brownie planning is on the way, and I am enjoying my last weekday off until October... by sitting here on the computer watching telly.

This may sound sad, but I am very happy.  We were away twice this week for camping trips, and have done a load of walking in the highlands through some STUNNING scenery.

Tonight I am teaching a couple of pupils, before meeting some friends for a few drinks.

Don't think it gets much better.

I love free champagne

Even when it's found in a drawer belonging to an ex-colleague where we suspect it has resided since 2006 if not earlier.

Yum...... (actually is good.  I do like free stuff but it's made me happy this evening on a school/work night).
