What I learnt this week: Lost in translation

Last week of July 2015…

People can very much surprise you.  The amount of times when I thought I had people worked out only to be proven wrong blows my mind.  Sometimes that friend will disappoint you or a near stranger may help you in an unexpected way.

That’s life.

And you definitely can’t just take people as you see them.  Judging a book by its cover can be very limiting.  This lesson was brought on when Tom came to visit Manchester.  We went out for some drinks and as we chatted I realised he definitely wasn’t the person I thought he was.  Not in a bad way, just different to what I expected.

He also surprised me when he mentioned a message that I’d sent, which he said seemed cold.  I thought I was being friendly!  And that’s the danger of taking social media at face value!

It was a hectic week- busy at work, packing up my life from the last 2 years and some social business.

On Wednesday I needed time out.  So Steph came over and cooked me dinner whilst I packed.  We were very ‘Sex and the City’- drinking Prosecco.  (If you’ve seen the film, you’ll know what I mean).

Friday night- Jill, Steph and I went to ‘Crazy Wendy’s’ for some crazy karaoke, (I sang Spice Girls and I’m sure it was brilliant…).  What a great way to end my time in West Didsbury!
