I have had a super busy weekend, seeing family and friends as well as sorting all my kit for next week so here is a quick update of what I have done.
It started off on Friday after driving over with Will and Ben, I had enough time to put a washing on before I had to head to Liverpool to go to the work meal. It was a lovely meal and good to chat to everyone before I go in for a week this week. After the party I came home and my brother asked me to sort out his new phone (Xperia Z3) with his music from his old iPhone so I did that before eventually heading to bed, it took ages. I was up fairly early on Saturday to give my mum a lift into town to collect her car from the station and also so I could head to Oakley in Cheshire Oaks to use a gift voucher I had, bought a new case for my glasses.
Drive home (there was a dusting of snow on the Pennines):
I had to get all this done in the morning as well as collect the MR2 from Will because we were going to my grandparents for the family Christmas meal at 12, didn’t arrive until 1 in the end. My family always have a big party the weekend before Christmas week as we all go on holiday over Christmas so we give everyone there presents early instead of carrying them with us to Austria. The main bulk of my presents this year was money along with some sweets and a multi-tool which i am happy with as my overdraft is in rather a lot of use at the moment.
After that it was straight in the car to drop my parents at home before my brother and I went to school to watch a play. The play was really good and it was nice to get a proper drive in the MR2 as I had to drive the Polo on Friday back from Leeds and then again to my grandparents. Once the play was over I had to drop my brother back at home before going to the after party; went to get fuel on the way back (and a new Lego toy) and got a text from a friend who was stuck in the car park at school with a dead battery! After we had sorted it out we headed to get some drinks before arriving at the party an hour late. Got home at about 4 and was up at 10 taking Kate home before finally getting a chance to relax this afternoon. Started to pack all my kit for next week, getting very excited.
New Lego car (only two left to collect):
Kit ready for the holiday:
Today was topped off by first going to see the final part of the Hobbit followed by a nice meal with my family and our presents from each other. I got a new Douchebags t-shirt, some tyre traction tracks, a Haynes ‘Build your own V8’ and a ‘clean slate’ from my mum (literally a clean slate):
That is it for now, going to go to sleep soon so I am not too tired in work tomorrow.
