lansso. with many changes happening, one of them is now I work Tuesdays instead of Thursday which means something. anyway on my first Thursday off since 2012 (excluding national holidays like Xmas etc) I needed to go into Plymouth to sort a birthday present for ash for the day after.
waking up after my alarm at 8am is OK, but checking all the social medias along with reddit now and emails is a a good start. but just after I work up and had a shower we lost the cat and decided to look for her which turned out she was in the kitchen somewhere.
By 10:15, I was on my way to Plymouth. it was a longer ride since for a change, I decide to pass through saltram and go on q bridge recently rebuilt nearby. I ended up at drakes circus by 12:15 exactly, pretty good.
Then there was the wandering around, which was pretty cool-ish but sadly there were no reduced jeans in primark and krispy kreme was not as busy as once was, so later on there would be a chance to order what I need. While looking around i saw a few things like:
- £15.00 for 4GB of DDR3 laptop ram
- £35 for a used Hipstreet W7
- a lady was being annoyed at someone since a galaxy tab 7 was not responding and it was all virus talk
- Various bargains for rucksacks in the Sony Store.
- A bottle of vinegar and a bottle of soy sauce for £1.99 at the oriental shop, managers special
- I also saw a former lecturer of mine, he nodded as did I
Then when back in the mall, I came across Pete. We walked around aimlessly to pound land, catching up with each other as we were wandering. like ex house roomies anbs relationship stuff, even saw some girl he nodded too. Then we got Poundland which Pete bought 2 bottles of aloe vera water. one for him and me. Actually it was nice but there tern "tastes like what a washing machine smells like" was quite true. there were gel like bits in there as well which I swallowed but very refreshing indeed.

Then we had the walk to their barbican since his lunch break was nearly over, which we talked of rumours and plans that could happen soon. Another wander to the hoe happened after, sure it was windy but very beautiful views around. it was useful to type this up on the onda while charging glass via the solar charger as well.

But by 14:45 I headed back to town and popping inside the casino which after killing time by a toilet break, i played against 5 other guys and they were pretty good, the dealer had nice looks to her as well, Hollie she was called. But i managed to win £6 then cashed the money in and walked to town to buy cards and jeans.
I managed to pick up a nice cute panda bithday card for £0.59 and then the walk up to Drake's Circus, sure i saw others around and saw something which made me rage but i walked on.But it was time for the jeans, which i managed to pick up a pair for £5, seriously, £5 NOT REDUCED, YAY So i bought one of those.

Then there was the KK, which after waiting a minute or 2, i managed to order a box of originals for home and the green card to the gift. which came to £20.95, i Paid on the card and then time to pack and deliver.

Then i was about to go back and boom, my earphone right side had died :@. after undoing my bike from the lock, i got to maplin and rushed to fine cheaper ones, nope. So i cycled home as it was, passing to deliver the gift on the way, Ash did say "Hi mattie" then walked into a room with a embrrassed look on her face, i was worried so i just left before things could go worse, but she had it which was the main thing. Then a tiring and squeaking journey home.
I got home and the dog was over excited then it was a case of relaxing and then a fish and chippy. That was a tasty meal but it ended the day very nicely.
Well this was a good day and more posts coming soon
