  • I think I'm getting old. Because when I actually have a busy social life at the weekend, it tires me out and I need another weekend to recover from it. Thank GOD I have a three day weekend next week to rest and recuperate!
  • I ate a three course meal on Friday night - and didn't even feel full! How weird. Usually my eyes are bigger than my belly. (Metaphorically - not literally!)
  • It REALLY annoys me when you're out to celebrate an occasion for someone and the third person you are with decides that you and she are going to pay for the entire meal since it's the other girl's occasion. I am not trying to be greedy or selfish here but I resent people making that decision for me - especially when I'm struggling with money at the moment!
  • Apparently anyone (of legal age) can get into the casino these days. I've never been to a casino before. I don't know ANYTHING about gambling but the bar did a good line in French Martinis and Bellinis.
  • I managed to leave my mobile at my friend's before we went to the restaurant and was panicking all night that my sister would have tried to get in touch and thought I was dead because I hadn't replied (it's happened before!) By three in the morning I was starting to get more upset than panicky (probably due to my drunken state) so my friend said we should go back to her flat. It was there. And my sister hadn't even been in contact after all that!
  • I spent last night over at my sister's having a girly night in. We watched "The Proposal" and I fell in love with Ryan Reynolds all over again. I can't believe that damn Scarlett J stole him from me! (Bitch). I also really wanted the little white dog. What an awesome film. Liked it far more than "The Hangover" - by the time I got around to watching that it was so hyped up by everyone I knew that it actually was a bit of a letdown. "The Proposal" on the other hand, was absolutely fantastic, and far better than I expected!
  • I drank what feels like the output of an entire vineyard this weekend. Think I should give my liver a break for the next week or so.
  • I've been up since half eight this morning since my sister was working. This is the earliest I've been up on a Sunday for god knows how long.
  • I am absolutely FREEZING!!!
  • Oh . . . and it looks like I'm going to be a bridesmaid for the first time!!! Wheeeee!!!

So that was MY weekend. How was yours???


  1. sounds like, on balance, you had a good weekend! I think if someone is going to suggest paying for dinner like that it would have been better to ask you in advance. I don't think you're being greedy or selfish, she put in a difficult position!

    enjoy your R&R next week!


  2. mine has been very very boring!!!

    yay on being a bridesmaid!

  3. I watched The Proposal AND The Hangover on my plane trip to the UK. I laughed at both of them. Out loud. On a plane. People thought I was weird.
    I'm also not sure I didn't sing along with something at some point?
    Ryan Reynolds is practically a god to me. Have you seen him in Definitely, Maybe? OhEmGee!

    I'm a bridesmaid for the first time too! Actually the maid of honor, but it's almost the same.

  4. My weekend has been super laidback. Friday night I stayed in and relaxed. Yesterday I spent the day with a friend and we went to yoga and then I baked a lasagna and today I'm just going for a long run, doing A LOT of homework and then going to the movies :)

    Girls nights are the BEST!

  5. Huzzahhhh for bridesmaid-ness!!

    I'm still trying to shift this cold, so I've spent the weekend feeling sorry for myself and WISHING I could go out.

    Stupid immune system. Stupid dogsitting responsibilities!


  6. I had a lame o weekend
    waste of life.

  7. Last night I drank the entire stock of cider in Wolverhampton and I am feeling it so I know what you mean!

  8. Sounds like a good weekend :)

    The Proposal is great, I love that film. I'm a big fan of Ryan Reynolds now because of that film. That body wow!! lol!

    Thats so cool that you're going to be a bridesmaid :) Who is getting married?

  9. went out friday night, met a cute guy, he didn't ask for my phone number. talked to the girl that stayed later than we did yesterday, he said he asked her if she had it, but didn't ask her for it. finally found him on facebook, waiting on him to find and approve the friend request.

    nothing else of any significance occurred this weekend.

    your friend shouldn't have put you on the spot to shell out cash. period.

  10. I absolutely love The Proposal! I feel like I need another weekend too!

  11. I admire your enthusiasm at being a bridesmaid. Mine wore off after thirty seconds. Because my sister-in-law is a beast. But that's neither here nor there.

  12. I'm shattered even though my weekend was fairly lunch Sat and gym class Sun morning and that was about it!

    Good luck with your bridesmaid duties...I was one twice

  13. weekends packed full of plans exhaust me. i need another weekend just to recover!
