What I Did On My Weekend

Good grief, I disappear for two days and have a life that doesnt involve typing and y'all start freaking out!

Really, its nice to be missed. At last! At long last! I'm popular!

We had the glorious K & V girls come and stay with us for the weekend after a bit o girly drinking action on Friday night. It was the first time I'd a) been out on my own drinking with my buddies for about 3 years and b) been out at all to have fun in about 2 months and c) seen the incorrigible yet somewhat lovable F for 18 months.

One of the things that I really love about my relationship with these people is that it doesnt matter how long its been since we've seen each other, we pick up where we left off just as if it were a week or two. Its a bit special really, and I'm a very lucky girl.

One of the highlights of the weekend (for me, anyways) was watching the Live Aid 20th Anniversary DVD (thanks mum). I was in England at the time this happened, just about to turn 16, and stayed glued to the teevee set until 3am. I probably even licked the screen when Spandau Ballet came on. Watching it now is surreal. I simulatenously felt 16 and about 50. Not helped, of course, by having to explain to the LUDDITES who certain people were, and putting up with their ridicule over my fashion faux pas admissions. Kids these days.... Really, what was wrong with fishnet gloves and floral leggings???? (And yes, mum, if Madonna had jumped off a building of course I would have done that too!)

An all-round fabulous weekend, really. Thanks kids!

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
