Le weekend..

In more detail..

Friday..
was a very busy day.. just prepping, and then at the end of the day picking Faye up from Euston.. Good thing we did, I can't imagine what going on the tube would have been like after her delayed journey & long day! !!! Eeek

As it was it wasn't till about 2am that we really got to sleep.

Sat was exhausting, more prep & trying to clear stuff in time. Faye helped me a load by slicing up all the vegetables for the BBQ. Thanks hon:D

The excess went into a very nice Ratatouille last night :D

We also cursed & muttered at the rain which kept going.. Luckily it DID clear up by 4pm! :)

Food was pretty good, ..

BBQ'd sweetcorn, the usual things like burgers, sausages, nibbles & dips..

Around 10 of us were there all together including 3 old school friends. We haven't been together for a couple of years so good stuff.

Have to say the patio looks really good, super thanks to Dad for extending/getting it fixed up :D. The garden didn't look too bad either in the immediacy.. Thanks to Jon & Ros for their help with weeding really!

Hal brought a nice bottle of vino, (cheers mate) though could only stay a short time (never enough time ! :D )

Got some great personalised pressies of Jas, and of course Faye.. Actually I think the best pressy was the Sat night one ;) :D

The only slight downer was the temperature. By about 7 - 8 ish everyone was donning jackets etc as it was pretty chilly.. Typical when Sun was a lot warmer!

Sat night went on into Sun morning and it was probably about 3am before I went to sleep. I am now paying for this..

Sunday..

A very snoozy day which consisted of getting Faye onto her coach on time at Victoria (successful) and then snoozing in the afternoon.

TODAY.. Happy BD :D

Cash & cheques of parents and brother.. Always useful but lacking in passion! :) Oh well.. It will go into my pocket & EB & Triodos accounts post haste! ..

Loads of super greetings off everyone and lots of ecards & messages on the boards.. HUGS ALL! :D

So far today I've slept in.. had brunch between about 11 & 1.

Been to B&Q and got some hot glue sticks & written a short piece for a newsletter.

So ... another year under the belt.. & what a year its been..

The past 9 months have been a mad mix of heaven & hell.

Losing Sara, and not going to the USA was pretty hellish..
Meeting Faye has been pretty good.. One of the better things thats happened for a while in fact..

Around all this has been a weird mix of family stuff, work, personal projects, health stuff and ups and downs..

All that said I am right at this moment stable though not the best healthwise. I have love, money, clothes, food, and , and shelter.
So all in all.. Can I complain.. Probably.. but then I'm a perfectionist in some respects.

Not sure what we're doing for supper.. I quite fancy going out, but I know mum's bought pork loin so we'll see.....
