I know some people think I am a little wacky but I just think that having lots of different and sometimes weird interests makes my world a brighter & happier place. If you must judge me, blame my mother-in-law for its all her fault. She mentions this freaky little cult to me back in December when she was visiting. I hadn't even heard of Eddie Stobart. I know I'm bound to have seen the trucks on the road but I was totally oblivious to their existence, probably looking at the clouds in the sky, oh and the road ahead, instead. Then there was the TV series on Channel 5 which I watched from about the 3rd episode. From then on I have been totally addicted to spotting these trucks and yes, collecting the names. How I haven't had an accident by now is beyond me as when I see one of those babies - I simply HAVE to get the name. And if by some terrible twist of fate, the truck is on the wrong side of the road or it’s too dark - well I simply have a fit! All my friends, work colleagues and family think I am insane but the funny thing is they're all at it now too! I often get girls names shouted at me when I walk in the office in the mornings and I did have a rather disturbing voicemail left on my phone the other day. A very deep slurred male voice simply said 'Muriel Jane spotted M11 9.30 this morning'. Ha-ha I am going to change the world and convince people that Eddie-spotting is cool.............(I know I have my work cut out here) I have to admit to being an official 'club stobart' member now. I have lots of spots to update on the website and I'm sure I will move up the ranks pretty quick as Martin spots loads on his travels. Here's a photo to whet your appetite and maybe tempt you into looking out for an Eddie next time you're on the road
Onto other things. I celebrated my 34th birthday back in January.
How did that happen - I mean how can I be 34??? I feel about 22 & certainly act it the majority of the time. Debbie came down and bought me some beautiful flowers & the cutest little cake which we had a great time demolishing. I got lots of lovely gifts and some money which I put towards the Mulberry handbag I bought myself just before christmas. I had to have it after seeing Cheryls at work and I had to have it right then. I figured I could get it & then put all my Christmas & birthday money into the fund for clearing the credit card bill. Here she is - a Leah Hobo in Oxblood - very roomy and squishy and I *love love love* it.
