So Monday morning has arrived and I made it through the weekend. It turned out to be a pretty good one overall, though I had some serious doubts initially.
Friday morning I woke up had to get to work for 6am. It started badly because as I got ready to leave my house at 5:10 I went to pick up my keys from the table to unlock the front door and they were not there. Those are not only my house keys, but my work keys as well, so there was no option in just walking out; I needed them to open up. I proceeded to spend the next half an hour trying to find them and missing both the early morning trains I could get to get into work on time. I finally woke up my dad and asked him if he had moved or seen them when I came in yesterday. Turns out he had them. He intended to give them to me (no idea why, we all leave our keys in the same place, why he wanted to change this I do not know) but forgot and so they were upstairs next to his wallet, in my parents bedroom. I had called 118247 to try and get hold of another store to see if they could let me in and that failed, I am glad I woke the rentals up now because otherwise I would have been boned. Luckily he felt guilty and gave me a lift to work, but I opened up 15 minutes late. I suspect there will be a conversation about this upon my return to work (IN 2 WEEKS!!) but for now it is ok. I put an excuse in the diary saying an old lady got her foot and bag stuck between the platform and the train and so the train couldn’t leave and I was helping. Sounds plausible and acceptable to me.
Friday was also my colleagues last day at work. Due to me having time owed and not taking my break I finished at the same time as him and I took him for a goodbye drink. We sat and chatted and I wished him luck in the future. Next week we are all going for his leaving birthday meal and possibly a dance (with my married 30+ female colleagues, I am not sure how to take this whole idea.) but I will cross that bridge when I get to it. The staff meal we had was surprisingly fun, mainly because one of the girls (I say girls she is in her mid 50′s) got drunk and she was absolutely hilarious. Her Spanish accent became so heavy and she swore, something I have never heard from her.
After work I went home, relaxed then my friend picked me up to go to his. In honesty I really wasn’t sure if I should go as I have been feeling really bad lately. My moods have been so dark and bleak and hopeless I just wanted to be alone, but he dragged me to his. I had not eaten all day and he fed me this massive meal and gave me a JD and said we are chilling, end of discussion. He is a top guy. His lady was lovely and I met their two newly adopted cats. One of them (who is really nervous around people) curled up in my lap and slept for 2 hours. My friends were in shock, but I loved it. He is my new favourite kitty.
Saturday came round and we three cleaned up the house as it was his birthday family get together. Me and the dude went to the supermarket and came back with man snacks, 40 beers, 10 ciders and spicy stuff. His Mrs laughed and said it was obvious that we went shopping, just look at what we got! His birthday was a great success, with lots of conversation with his family who all know me and playing with the cats and the kids. There was an adorable little girl and guy, Amelia and Alex. Alex will be a stuntman, fact. He kept falling over and bashing into things, yet just got up and laughed it off, then went running in another direction. MACHINE!! We ended up going to town and having a few drinks where we saw some friends of mine.
I turned into a question master. I don’t know how but a few people I had ideas about things they had done but would never admit to, BUT I GOT THEM TO ADMIT IT!! I just played mind games and backwards questions and BOOM (headshot) I got my answers! Yes, you fancy my mate. Yes, you did get off with another girl for free drinks, more than once! Yes, I know you just checked out my junk, but no, I am not gay, sorry bro!
We hit the club and I changed from a question master to a drunk dancing deity. All the moves were coming out and I didn’t care who was watching! Saw a few more friends, had a few more laughs and about 2:30 we wrapped it up and went back to my friends where ham sandwiches, water and bed were the order of the night.
Sunday we got up and relaxed and then I headed home, where I pootled around on the internet for the day and then went to bed around 10pm. Napping was not an option. I have had a pretty good weekend and this week looks like it has some real potential now. I am going out tomorrow to play squash/gold/see Die Hard/MAN DAY. My brother is also on half term so I am planning some quality time with him, probably just a trip to London or something, but it will be good bonding.
Also I have been nominated for the Liebster Award here by The Girl At War Thank you!! I shall be writing the response post to that soon, along with possibly another list. For now though I hope everyone is doing well, sorry for the 1000 word long post and President Obama said DFTBA!!!
