I’m in day trip traffic and parking hell, too—plus my appointment has been “delayed.”

Another day is over.

I hate this feeling - when I want time run faster, and when time flies so fast that life is slipping away.

I could but don’t want to risk any falling out or getting her annoyed, being so far from home that will stress me out and I would start secret drinking. I don’t have a plan for coping here lol. I’m going to ask to have the fancy bed tonight though, I had an operation on my spine last year and the sofabed isn’t doing me any favours, no only that I begrudge paying a LOT of money to sleep on a sofabed, we decided to up our budget for this holiday so I do want some luxury.

Not long till your free either MB?

I think taking turns with the nice bed is entirely reasonable, especially because of your spinal surgery.

Keep sneaking off here to post if you get triggered!

This is exactly what I would have posted. Try and enjoy the days though if you can.

Great to see you Andy!

I have eaten 3 Tunnock's Tea Cakes this evening

Tunnock’s tea cakes are the biz! I am partial to the Tunnocks caramel wafers

In the fancy bed posting now, night was great and had a lovely meal out. Thankfully posting here kept me away from the bar and focused on the right path so thanks Gilmer and MB xx

We’re going to walk the walls of the Dubrovnik old town where they filmed Game of Thrones in the morning. That place is amazing, I love old architecture, it’s jaw dropping.

Night everyone, hello to any new weekenders I haven’t had a chance to get to know yet. Keep strong peeps xx

Morning, Sao!

Your well-calculated risk paid off - it is Wednesday indeed)

After my usual round of mental wrestling I did another best running and upped my hill sprints to 11.

Now having breakfast later than usual while working at my laptop.

Looking forward to more coffee later.

Well good morning all.

There is a roadside Cafe on my way to work and I often stop off for a café et croissant deal. It has become a bit of a habit. I will have to stop though cause croissants (cooked butter) is not the greatest health wise.

Morning, Vman.

Yep, croissants are surely kind of romantic and morningish symbol, but no use whatsoever for your body and brain.

Everything is working out great on my little trip. From the second I whined yesterday on here, the day took an instant upturn and not only were things okay, they were incredibly fun and interesting.

I am just fascinated by eye tests!

Ever since I was a little kid getting tested for prescriptions, I was mesmerized by all the accoutrements of the ophthalmologist’s office.

I have one more ultrasound of my eye today, then back home.
