Pride and Prejudice!

I just spent the most fabulous evening in the company of Lucy and Lu. We went to Stratford to eat absolutely gorgeous food (and drink lovely wine in my case) at Caffe Uno, and to watch a comedy am dram production of Pride and Prejudice, in which Mr Darcy couldn't act but did get his chest hair out. The evening produced a quote from each of us:

Lucy: "I'll flirt with him until he gives it to me"
Lu: "He's a trumpet player called Matt...that's good enough for me"
Me: "Ooh, we're dancing to an invisible Beatles song!"

I have also decided it is necessary to compile a list of things that are officially Recommended. This will be updated in future postings as I discover new Recommended things. Currently my list is:

Drinking through cream
Coffee with Tia Maria
Mr Darcy
and of course Going out with the girls, which is truly fabulous. Ladies, you rock!

Only one more day at work and then I'm having Friday off! Yaaaay!
Life is officially great.

New photos

I've put some new photos on my MSN space - Lu's birthday, my birthday, Friday's girly night and Skool Dayz. Apologies to everyone who didn't get in my Skool Dayz pictures - my camera decided to only let me get 28 pictures from my 36 film! But they only charged me for a 24 film in Boots so it was all ok. Anyway, I think the ones from Lu's birthday are the definite highlight - I have no memory of most of them being taken and I seem to be holding a large glass of wine in practically all of them, so they're probably a fair representation of the night! I do like having new photos.

Drunken blog!

Ok, I know you people have been waiting for a drunken blog for a long time, and who am I to deprive you?! I just had a fab girly night with Lucy and Kelly who both rule, and felt I should record events if only to record the quotes that happened during the night.

Firstly I feel you should know that I have thrown large quantities of water down my pyjamas just now.

Anyway. We had a pampering party thanks to the lovely lady from Mary Kay cosmetics, and I spent far too much on a glitter set and a handcare set, although the latter is my mum's Christmas presnet on which I'm going halves with my brother. When I phoned to check with him about this he provided the first quote of the evening:

"To be honest, I'm so ratarsed that I really don't care. Never drink a centurian with 7.5% chav lager". Oh dear...may have to check up on that one tomorrow!

After this we finished Juicy's bottle of wine and sampled my chocolate Mozart balls liqueur, before going to Voodoo where me and Juicy had the most fabulous shots, made up of butterscotch liqueur, Baileys and squirty cream on top! This brought on the second quote of the evening, from me:

"Drinking through cream. Recommended."

We then moved on to The Lounge, which was closed, and then to Robbins Well which was most definitely open, hurrah. On the way Juicy and Kelly between them concluded that Juicy is a man with breasts. But we love her anyway!

After another drink at the Well I left the lovely ladies at the bus stop (goodness knows where they are now...) and made my way home. A fabulous night, which I feel can only be beaten by School Days tomorrow which should be legendary. Be there! I will be (in a see through shirt...oh dear).

See you all tomorrow! xxx

Fab concert

Well done to everyone in Wind Orchestra and Brass Band for a great concert tonight! I really enjoyed it, and even Mark agreed that it was worth paying £5 just to hear Simon Hogg reading out the lyrics to Sway. That man is smooth. Windows of the World was the definite highlight - it was very polished and played with real energy, thanks of course to Mr Inglis who is just great! The best moment was most definitely Sam's awesome drum solo - Sam, if you ever tell me again that your drum solos need improving I simply won't believe you. You're a star! :o) I'm really looking forward to coming and supporting at the NCBF when I'll be able to hear the piece again.

Hope you all enjoyed celebrating afterwards - sorry we didn't stay, but Mark and I had the 22.08 bus to catch! An A46 bus that leaves in 6 minutes time with a gap afterwards of 50 minutes is definitely not to be missed. However, I will catch up with some of you at the curry on Saturday which Raquel and I are gatecrashing before going on to the legendary event that is School Days. Hurrah!

Just wanted to say thankyou to everyone who organised the fireworks party yesterday - I had a great time! Well done to Sam for arranging everything and making such yummy punch (even if he didn't know what was in it!), to Colin and Owen for the firework display, to Joe for the excellent idea of having 1812 in the background and to Dave for timing the music to the fireworks. A most excellent way to spend a Saturday night.

Today I'm having a lovely day in - I've finished the cleaning now and after lunch I'm going to read my new Jane Austen book that Raquel gave me and listen to piano music. I love hiding indoors when it's raining, and snuggling up all cosy and warm. Yay.

Good luck to everyone in WO and Brasssoc for tomorrow's concert - I'm sure it will be fab. I'll be in the audience and I'm sure I'll see most of you in the interval or afterwards.

See you then!
