Weekends are nice. For several reasons, the most obvious of which being there is no need to be going to work and getting up early.
I still got up fairly early though, even after being woken up by Andy about an hour and a half after I fell asleep last night, when he came home drunk and decided to spend half an hour stood outside having a very loud conversation with our neighbour, across our open bedroom window! I can't wait to move upstairs and have the bedroom overlooking the back. Roll on Friday!
Woke up about 8am, when the postman arrived and noisily shoved our letters through the door. The tenancy agreement to sign arrived, although we're refusing to sign it at the mo, as they want us to adhere to the inventory from Sept 2004, which is a) signed (and agreed to) by the previous tenants, and b) utterly inaccurate. Fortunately, we have a copy of the inventory from July last year, which we have made amendments to, and Jamie is going to take it in at lunch on Monday and yell at them.
Have been out and about all day, mostly in town, where many exiting things happened. These included:-
Getting my hair cut. My hair was getting unruly and looking rather daft, so now I am sporting a much shorter, lighter, prettier hairstyle which is so much better than what I had previously. I've experimented with layers, and a side parting, and a sort of fringey-type-thing (which is definately not a Fringe).
I also successfully bought a new pair of shoes, which is something of a triumph. See, I was looking for a new pair of shoes for work, that weren't too expensive. Trouble is, its hot in the office, but dress code prohibits open toed shoes, for some unknown and ludicrous reason. And current shoe fashion trends means sandals, or flip flops, or those ballerina style shoes, or shoes with stupidly pointy toes. All of which I hate, except the sandals, and I'm not allowed them.
I managed to find a decent pair of heeled ballerina shoes in Shoe Express for just over a tenner, and they're surprisingly comfy. I am pleased.
I also got a new Bernard Cornwell book for just 3.99, and had a lovely meal in Pizza Express. Made me all look forward to my holiday, cos it was all very Italian and posh.
Is only a week and bit till my wisdom teeth removing operation, and I can't wait. I had my pre-op last week, and since I'm ludicrously healthy it didnt take long. The op is on July 4th, so I get a whole week off to recover before I have to fly to Rome on the 11th. Which is better than the original plan, as the op was supposed to be on the 6th, and you're supposed to have 7 days to recover, so I wouldn't have really been in a state to fly.
Dave Young's birthday today, so we're off over to Lucy and Dave's house for drinks later. They're all out having all you can eat chinese buffet, but we didnt want to waste 30 quid on that. And I'm not drinking tonight, as I'm going to drive, cos L+D's house is too far to walk.
Am having a contact lens thingy tomorrow morning too, so hopefully I wont have to wear my stupid glasses all the time too. Which will be good for Fayre and Renewal, as I'd kinda like to be able to see what I'm shooting at!
