Saturday morning in London. I made it! Yup! Holla! heyyyyyy lol! I’m in Starbucks in Wilmbledon around the corner from Penny my couch surfing host’s flat. I attempted to make coffee at her house, but it’s one of those stoves that are with gas. I didn’t see any matches & I forgot how the bloody ( British accent used here) thing operates! I just spilled coffee over the journal. Good times! 😛
Penny was away for the night on a hot date with a man. Ouuuuuu spicy I know! She didn’t want to be a rude host she said leaving me on my first night alone at her house, but she really wanted to go out on this date! Oh my goodness, don’t be silly I told her! I don’t think it’s rude at all. I am just grateful to be in London and hosted surfing on a couch! She gave me keys to her house. She also gave me a mobile if I wanted to give any of my friends the number so they could contact me. How nice! I asked if I can go somewhere to buy credit to put on it and she said there should be 14 pounds on it which would be more than enough if I was sending text messages. What more could I ask for? Super nice! She even pulled out the couch into a bed and put fresh linens on for me! And then people ask you if Couch Surfing is safe or not. Well, it’s at your own risk, but I have attracted all wonderful people.
I was happy for her going out having fun with men on dates. She just turned 58 years old yesterday. So, I was thinking just like the Aussie’s say, ” Good on ya mate!” LOL I think she goes out with more men than me which is AMAZING! It’s also a sign perhaps that I should date more myself! I need to get out there….. Well it’s not that there aren’t men, it’s just I am so busy I guess with projects and my goals. Or maybe because I haven’t let go of a certain someone…. hmmmmm Don’t analyze and over think Elaine. Just BE…………. Deep breathe in…….. exhale………… Some blockages, but we shall speak of that later!
