omracer's Holiday: The 5th Date Travel Day (Day 3)

Well, it's the day of the date and also the day the weather is going to port quality. but this time we finally have my 5th date and so much to feed and eat and chat to. the vlog is below

An exhausted morning 

my eye wakes up at 7:00am, the legs were tired and we'll, the body felt shattered but the mind needed gm the bog that stuff is done before this day begins. I finally got up at that time and started to get the trailer made for the previous vlog.  Chatted to swaggy and the house and we'll then it was shower and packing up to make it work.

The bins

The shower was nice and good at 39C with little issues to deal with and that good old fact of making sure I was tidy before leaving g. I did text christea as well go say about our plans and later that changed for the better. But then if wax to make the bed and have a good old mini tidy up before getting out of that Airbnb. Chatting to the host and putting the good record in the book is always a  cute way. Also, I got rid of some Asus merch as little gestures  The water bottle that freezes and refills too. But i found out that buzzing sound is from a rare type of BEE which they eventually just move on to place to place. Nothing to worry about there.

Picking up the camera after testing it the night before

Then I had to drink gfuel but had a call from christea to hear some new and that she couldn't do the evening due to the family but could do afternoon which is what I wanted originally. so after talking. she's picking me up from Collingdale at 1ish so I don't have to go anywhere but Euston for it which is amazing tbh.

The last bits of packing

More of the bits to pack 
The beds made

Then I packed up and wheeled out and said goodbye and picked up the other laptop since I left it outside to get the trailer uploaded which it did not leg me.

The run

This was a painstaking bad run, it took me nearly 40minutss to get to just an estate bear the bus station. cars passing, wheels falling off the suitcase and even colleague ringing up for not pulling the machine.

Getting to the junction and knowing the wheel had fallen off.

Then by this estate, a lovely lady picked me up and drove me down the hill and was lovely to talk to. I got to the bus stop by 10:25 :). I was still on time for 11am :)

The luggage 

After another few minutes wait, it was £6.40 for that single and a misty ride to Milton Keynes.

On the coach to Milton Keynes

The trespass of delays

I got to Milton Keyes and ran in, scanned the QR code then rushed in the lift to platform 5 to get the train. I eventually got on and well it turns out someone trespassed in the line but didn't die. so it was a case of waiting for a bit.

Rushing fro the platform 
Milton Keynes 

We got told that we had to switch change and that was a rush to platform 4 and luckily it worked. I had to stand on this carriage to get on but a whole range of lovely people here. I called nan to let her know in on my way to London. Bluetooth headset with glass is actually useful and well it was not that far until we made it into the big E. I did text christea to make sure I was on my way and safe and sound. I was mega excited even if I was annoyed about the hypertec leaking, the wheel falling off the suitcase,  even with the battery life of my phone going down from 92 to 83 in less than 2 hours and well just the mini inconvenience and things.
Getting on


Blurred Fences 

The last bit 

insert pics here.

Transfer at Euston

eventually, I got to Euston by 12:09 and then message the Airbnb rep to say I will be there by 5 or so sense of the date. Euston looked nice and I got out and the lift to the right northern line to see her at Colindale. I text her to say I'm on my way then called her

Outside Euston

The next tube it will be 

The loft to the tube was not that bad, a few waits for the Edgware tube and I was set. I did drink the rest of the gfuel and heart was slightly higher than usual. But then  I got on the tube and sat down while hoping to enjoy the fun time with a growing girl.

It was only another 15 or so minutes to go. Luckily it's Bank when I get back on the tube to island gardens. Really I did book quite far out but to get this done and save money, it's worth it :)...

The wait

So I got there and waited for about half an hour. I did walk to near bang bang and then she called me as well as a customer did, I dragged myself up to. The Taco Bell is soo tempting and smelt so good.

Outside Collindale 

Heading towards a retail park

The 5th date

Then she called and told me her car and shortly after, I finally hugged her and she is much more my type than I was expecting, lovely accent, posh car and we definitely chatted and it felt lovely.

The towers on the other side 

The underground car park 

So we had to do a diversion after we got in the car. She needs some cigs so Morrisons was perfect for parking up and then Bang Bang it was. it is a peng foosball with buzzers and a nice relaxed feeling.

Me and Christea

Bang Bang
 We firstly looked at dumpling, soft fluffy cakes, mango and so much more. Then we looked and she saw the one she wanted which was prawn in black bean sauce and then the fun begins when I ordered salt and pepper squid. She ordered from another one with spicy vegetable dumplings. it did look nice. It must have been £24 on her so far.

16.45 for  3 things. 
We then are and chatting, I didn't get to feed her but she was starting to feel stuffed and we also tried each other's food.

Then it was nearing 2:45 and we decided to drive to her local creams. That was much easier and what she wanted which creams I've ordered for her on Uber eats several times. The excitement for her was insane and thus was her Second dinner. We chatted about everything, from Chloe stand g me up, her work since we did park up and did some work for her boss via an email and also chatted to Lewis on her car phone, well if it wasn't for him, I would not be here typing this. We chatted over so much, like she was basically an account manager for Coco cola and travels to shops to help with product marketing, has excel spreadsheets to translate but wanted a work laptop. maybe I will one day sort that out. Passing the A4, various bits and pieces and we'll the chance with more things to get into. it felt great with the music and how Siri was working in her car, 3G was a pain for it I could tell.

Soon after, we eventually drive to creams and pared near scooters, that was £1.30 an hour but worth it for making her happy and then to order the food, well that was a fun twist with getting the order done which a case of writing it down. The Chap that took us to table 19 was really good at telling the rowdy kids to keep it down and eventually kicked them out with other families arrive in. The total for both of us was a whopping £24.50.

Parking near maccies 

The menu for Creams

£5.75 for Cookie Dough and ice cream

She enjoyed it and maybe we stuffed her too much with 3 sorbets, late, milk chocolate utopia and she didn't finish much of the cookie dough, the sorbet did taste lush.

But most of the food was hers that i bought her. 3 sorbets, cookie dough, late ;)

We were chatting as we drove to the high Barent underground and learnt loads more about each other. Which then it was time to leave and say goodbye and I kissed her cheek. it was cute and chubby and I wish I did hug her more. Maybe it might happen soon. Then I was a quick wait in the tube until it goes to the bank. The rep was helpful too.

In the car on the way back 

The Tube to Island Gardens. 

It was peaceful really, sure cost me £4.70 to get there BUT was a nice relaxing journey until i got to Bank since changing and stairs. 

More Signs 

Changing stations 


Posh Views

Getting off at Island

The Walk to the BNB. 

Then it was a case of getting to the lift, a chap in the wheelchair liked glass but never used one in real life, I let him try it and it was great for him to enjoy. But alas I walked out into the Rain and it was nice and fresh and Island Gardens is pretty posh I will admit, the Airbnb was a short left away. I chucked the Creams slush in the bin, cup wise. 

Island Gardens Station. 
I walked for 10 minutes, dragging the suitcase out to the place. It was okay until the STEPS which is a pain but I got up and well, made it. 

Then I settled down and everything blew up at once with the Wifi being DECENT even though its Relish aka Three broadband so its 4G mixed upload crap. But hey, it works in a way. But then it was time to get to sleep at 2:35 am after uploading. 

Tomorrow seems to be a fun flirting day planned in the evening anyway.

omracer's Holiday: The Fun at Plug-in (Day 2)

Well, its day 2, the fun tech day and feelings were high, sure the money was being used and also my energy was tested but now I can finally get things moving. The vlog is below.

Now we started by waking up at 6 after sleeping at 3am due to the fun of wifi issues and uploading from the middle of nowhere. There was this odd buzzing sound that was happening too. But I got up by 7 and finished up the blog post minus the pics and videos since that was later on today.

Then it was the standard tour of the Airbnb.

But then another shower was needed and I had it then got changed and chose lemon and lime feel this time and it was quite sharp in all honesty.

The gfuel and bits 

After phone calls to S and christea and family. I spoke to the Airbnb host and bless little money greeting me and giving him a belly rub. But by 9:30, I was in a hoodie and shirt and ready to run,

The run

It was tedious but I made it to THE WING in 1 HOUR, 10 minutes, fuck that is good. Christea called JUST AS WE MADE IT there, but it's important since I can't wait to see her tomorrow. I really cant.
I got in and they didn't have a card for me and so the time came to wait and then after drying off soaked sweat in the toilets, it was 11 and the seminar was about to begin.

More running

The Start 

But then it ended and christea text me since she was hungry and feeling needy, which I liked But the cloud wifi was playing up a bit sadly. Then it was time to get lunch.

The start of the day, cinnamon swirl and orange diluted water 

Waiting for it to start 


Now lunch was an odd one since the queues were massive so I nicked a desert place and filled a pecan tart along with some salad extras which tasted SOOO GOOD, especially that tomato chutney on it as well. That was peng.

The first course 

Orange juice was also on tap so who could blame me for getting some. But then it quieted down and I managed to get chilli as well as more salad extras.
The second course 

As I was eating that, I managed to upload the pics from the 1st post so it's just to add those in when I'm in the next Airbnb since else I'll have no sleep later this night which isn't good. But It managed to upload the pics and 1st vlog quite nicely.

The Browse

But then it was time to explore the exhibitions and that is work stuff I didn't see much of but there were some cool things like the #rogbus, the #smarthome and how relatable even companies like Norton can be. I also learned of new things to expect which customers might like, finally found a way to get new cardboard piercings and realised things are going end of life.,

One of the Exhibits 

The #ROGBus

Inside the #ROGBUS

I also tried Forza on the Playseats but was NOT good at all, but I managed to film and drive reasonable ok. But then it was nearing the end and missing the MS escape room again as well as the other things, I left with 2 bags to go downstairs for the bar bits,

The smart home bit
Leaving with the goodybags 

It was great to see people and also chatting to one rep about laser hair removal and she won't sell it to eyebrow people issues due to the risk of the eyes near the laser indeed. But then it was finally time to relax, call a few of the suppliers and also attempt to upload photos after I picked up a goody bag and managed for that to fail due to some The Cloud limitation.
While waiting, another bottle of water in the bad and also managed to get the glass of orange juice as well as Chicken on a stick and also a salted caramel brownie with cherries on top. That and both were delish.

Leaving Silverstone

The Exhausting run home.

By 5:40, it was time to leave and I turned right then left for a change which leads me past the place of Porsche and also the road was closed as well as fuel stations about, But running or limping with aching sides on me, I managed to cross a fence after passing through turnstile near the rally section of Silverstone.

As I was running and running, a car stopped and a chap offered me a lift, so I said yes and the chap from AV was talkative and it was only a 5 min drive before I was at the corner above the equestrian centre, which makes it easier to run the rest of the way, although the 2 miles were still pretty strong and always in their own trick of problems.

But I eventually got home after running 2 miles in 29 minutes which was my slows speed, well that was all sorted and then calling family while moving the MiFi to the dog in the garden was a good choice. But mum and dad were in spoons and I finally Facetimed my grandad and she saw where I was without a major hitch unless of the face he forgot how to swipe to answer.

Also, I had to do one massive shit in the toilet and some of it stuck to the insides, I've sprayed and bleached and tiny bits remain.

I did look in the bag I was given and loads of amounts were there. But it was so much cool Asus stuff there. I did have 2 cans of Hypertec performance enhancing drinks but only had one and also had loads of books and even a chocolate controller from Norton as well.

Then I managed to catch up with the Airbnb host and I fixed her outdoor camera with the SD AND the correct batteries for each of those. But the battery change and SD card in and it worked nicely. Then it was a video editing and typing this until 3am.

The fridge when I got back

Hopefully, Friday is a life-changing day in a GOOD WAY.
