Happy Birthday to me.
I had a great day today celebrating my 57th birthday on Sunday. Swinton beat Toulouse the day before, and I met my 10 year old daughter today for my usual visit. I got loads of messages from FB Mates, including Barry from Warrington who played for Hillingdon Tigers, my ex-wife, and three guys who I used to work with that I haven't spoke to in 12 years. Plus I got a call from an ODP I have known for 30 years, and regard him as a brother.
I walked into the town centre with my daughter, and bumped into a friend from a regular meeting I attend 3x a week, and we had Ice Cream, courtesy of my Daughters pocket money, I was also given a box of Tofefee, and a M&S box of Beer flavoured Chocolates - nice, by her, for Birthday/FD.
Then due to my financial situation, we had frozen Pizza & Home made chips for dinner. I normally take her out for dinner, but my Universal Credit is due Monday. We then watched MiB2, again, just because it's one of our favourite film franchises & it was on Film4.
At 22:17 my UC was credited to my account, and I instigated a clause that I would take my daughter out for a meal tomorrow. Italian Way, 17:30, sea view please.
Tomorrow, shopping at Lidl, bits at Asda, then 14:30 at JC+ for usual interrogation. But this is a short month, as my PIP is due 25th, but I have three weeks stretch after that, so I need to squirrel away with 10yo £70 to help.
Funnily enough, we saw a used bookshop selling Peter Benchley's JAWS, and we got talking about that, apparently my 10yo's mate is obsessed by the film, and it was on ITV4 tonight. I have it on DVD if anyone wants to view the extras/making of.
