I’ve got a Golden Ticket…

Posted by pantgirl on November 16, 2010

This all started last weekend when the new River Cottage app was released and I downloaded it for my iPhone.  They had a competition where they had hidden 20 golden tickets all over the UK and just given the town and postcode.  There were 3 in Glasgow and one in Edinburgh and the rest seemed to be in the middle of nowhere or down in England. This all happened the day I was going up to Aberdeen for 4 days!  I was gutted as I thought they would all go asap.  All the England ones have pretty much gone, and the Edinburgh one, but not the Glasgow ones so I took my boyf into Glasgow today to go on a hunt and we found one!  In IJ Mellis Cheesemonger on Great Western Road!  I was so happy.  I have now emailed in the code to the email address and just looked up the possible prizes.  Of course, the majority are cheaper prizes like a free River Cottage Diary or River Cottage Every Day cookbook (which I already have…) but the rest of the prizes are ace, like the top one, win a private meal for you and 10 friends at River Cottage HQ!  Other ace ones are cookery courses etc.  Hope I win a good one!

We also trekked over to Ikea and absolutely stuffed my wee Corsa full of stuff for the new flat.  It took some positioning and shoving but we got a new dining table, 4 chairs, 2 foldy chairs and a new computer desk chair, phew!  Then went to the new flat and lugged it all up 2 flights of stairs and stored it in the new flats pantry in the Kitchen (very spacious!). Very knackering day.  Came back to my current flat in Polmont and have just collapsed onto the sofa.  Had a M&S Dine In meal for 2 that I bought at the weekend in Aberdeen so that was yum, and watched the 3rd episode of The Walking Dead.  I get very scared by real life (ie tv/film) zombies and I don’t know why. I know they aren’t real but my rational mind goes bye byes when I watch zombie things.  I blame my younger days playing Resident Evil 2 on my ancient PS1.  Ruined me that game has.

Tomorrow will be spent relaxing and enjoying my time off!  Off work til next Friday, then finished that Monday!  Still need to organise a work night out for my leaving.  No idea when I can fit that in as I might go down to see my sister in Manchester beginning of next week.  Ahhh so hectic!
