I went to that quiz on Saturday night, and had a really good time. It was very therapeutic in the way that it immersed me in the real world, that keeps on turning no matter what happens. It was held in my old school, and it is so strange going back there still! My whole family went and we joined forces with another family who are very old friends.
Aptly naming ourselves "Eat, drink and be merry", we were most definitely the most raucous team there! I am atrocious at quizzes, but somehow round by round we excelled, and it began to emerge that we were clear contenders for first place. Actually when I say somehow I know exactly how, my dad is incredibly clever and seems to know something about everything, and my sister is following suit with that ability to remember random facts and trivia. I do not have this ability, in fact I think I am the complete opposite where even quite simple facts and bits of knowledge just seem to drop out of my head. Sadly the round I excelled in was the Kids TV round - not my proudest moment, but at least I contributed!
I have been to the cinema twice this week, seeing Confetti and the Da Vinci code and thoroughly enjoying both. This is another perk of me doing much more walking in training for September as I have gained a lot of confidence in how far I can walk. It sounds stupid but I sometimes have visions of me walking through somewhere like a cinema, which if you add up the number of individual paces is fairly large, and then becoming too puffed to leave, therefore having to live there and survive merely on pick-and-mix and popcorn. Actually that sounds quite enjoyable, providing the pink and blue fizzy bottles which are my absolute favourite in the whole wide world are there...there werent any on either trip this week, but I was very brave and didnt return home immediately in disgust.
Other than that (and FAR too much talking, but I blame the interesting and fun people that keep visiting me for that) I have done very little this week in anticipation of this weekend. It is a very dear friends hen weekend and I am far too over excited about it all. I am unusually organised and have ordered double prescriptions of oxygen cylinders etc so that I am able to participate as much as possible; bring on a weekend of laughter fun and festivities! YAY!
