Boo. No weekend away for me! 😉
I have, however, been roped into collecting/delivering furniture for/with K. Not entirely chuffed, tbh, but I seem to be the only person she knows with a car. Of course, the fact that I haven’t really driven in a year didn’t stop her asking. At least it’s not far from the flat, and tbh I did have the thought that I need to get back into driving at some point, as it’s reached the level of me actively disliking it and limiting myself a great deal. It doesn’t help that I have zero sense of direction, so I find going anywhere new very very stressful – again, didn’t stop K from piling on the ask/bribe/etc. Sigh. Well, as long as she understands that friend-with-car does NOT equal ‘taxi’… I take the bus most places, after all!!
Anyway. Mini rant over. I’m clearly not a great friend 😉
And I’m being even less sociable than normal, as I’m skipping the cinema again tonight – and prob next week too. There’s not much out, and I’m not in the mood for ‘meh’ movies (I have Twin Peaks at home, after all! 😉 ). I just do not fancy Dunkirk, which I hear is amazing but sounds like an exercise in emotional strain, which I feel I have more than enough of IRL right now! The showings were full tonight, so this week is Despicable Me 3, which I took myself to see after a hospital appointment a few weeks ago. Would prob watch it again, but seems like a lot of effort! I’m sort of at the point where 2 things in a day just isn’t happening, and this afternoon was my weekly lunch with my dad followed by groceries.
I might be rare with this, but I really enjoy grocery shopping 🙂 It helps that I like cooking (and eating!) so this is my kind of retail therapy – mostly guilt-free, too, as a girl has to eat! This week was less healthy than usual, right enough, as they’ve brought back my all-time fav flavour of cider: Rekorderlig Peach and Apricot – nom! So, had to buy lots of those, as was devastated when they stopped making them 2 years ago! Was also in the wee M&S and found their passionfruit swiss roll, which is amazing but rarely in stock, so treated myself to that. And then a lemon version as it was marked down to 60p!
So, my weekend is pretty set: first the driving, then the cake and booze and more TV! 🙂
Decluttering is going well, all things considered. Have one more box of random phone/tech stuff to sort, and that’s the living room cabinet done. Feeling quite chuffed with that, although oy do I have too many candles!
And started another book – Whispers Under Ground, which is one I really want to read and not a ‘should’, which is exactly as it should be! 🙂
