Weekend Round Up

It's been a busy four days off.

Thursday I managed to re-build the home office and clear out the clutter. Still need to Instal the new light fitting, there's a little work to do on the door edging then some the personal touches to add, posters, gadgets etc. When it's done it should be a good little work space.

Friday day was spent having a big clean up of the house ready for drinks with friends on in the evening while Lotti was working. We also made some food, beef stir fry with black bean sauce followed by fruit salad with greek yoghurt & honey. I highly recommend the desert, it was awesome. We also decided to do a little experiment in our drinking session and pick some unusual beers to test out. 1st we had flavoured lager (cheery then erm can't recall the other flavour now) followed by a white lager then finished off with some crazy 8.5% strength rocket fuel lager. Of course we also had the usual Budweiser and Corona .

Saturday was a painful day on the old wallet. Lotti very kindly let me sleep in till 11am then we were up and out the door. We hit Blackpool first, intending to just pick up a shirt for work I left there with not only said shirt but a second shirt for going out, a new wallet (it is amazing!) and some man bracelets so already £80 down with an Ikea trip still to come. Now let me ask, how cool is Ikea? As far as me and Lotti are concerned it's the place dreams are made. If we had our way most of the house would be furnished in Ikea products and it probably will be by the time we have finally finished this bitch. We picked up a new TV stand for the front room that we've had our eye on for a while and a light fitting for the fresh new office and once again got a little carried away and bought a new desk lamp just because we can.

Sunday (today) rounded things off nicely with a BBQ at Lotti's mum's for her brothers birthday. we simply sat in the garden, dranks some Bud, I avaioded sun burn, and we ate great food. Steve, Lotti's kinda step dad, is a great cook especially when I comes to BBQ and currys.

So now i'm in bed watching some internet tv on TWiT.TV writing this blog post that no one will read. Back to work first thing in the morning so lets see what next week brings?

G signing off for tonight.
