Keeping busy…

You know when you were younger (or, for many of us, at the age we are right now), and you would procrastinate rather than do a piece of work? Well that’s been me with this blog post all evening! Seriously, I’ve emailed, browsed forums, doodles, clocked up a solid couple of hours over on YouTube. But now I’m actually gonna write something.

It’s been a busy few days for the country mouse. Friday saw some more badminton antics for Minimus and I – we are getting quite sadly into it now! We’re playing a 3 set game, and he’s taken the first set 6-5! Doooooom. Then again, he’s 19 and pretty fit – he should be able to beat his curvetastic older sister, right.

Friday night was out at the pub (Beastie, haunt of my senior year!) for a few drinks with the girls. Good fun, after an initial hold up of two hours waiting for a friend to get her stuff together. Don’t you hate it when that happens? It annoys me when someone just assumes your time is less important than theirs! But after that nonsense, it was a laugh, plenty of banter.

Yesterday I took a road trip down to Aberdeen with Toaly and Jen. We went to the genius that is Primark and revelled in the sheer number of tops available for 4 pounds! I didn’t buy much though, just a couple of sets of funky beads. Then, we went to the bingo. I know, I know, we’re total OAPs!! However, I did win 20 pounds….thank you, Manish!

Today has been church, the beach, adventures in Carbonara (in a word….salty) and chillaxing to the max. How has your weekend been?

    I think what I love best about reading your blog, is I can actually hear your British accent (well, I know to you it isn’t an accent!)…I sure hope you have one, and I’m not making this up in my head! (please link to my blog…thanks for such a sweet compliment).
