Sunday 19th July 2009

A relatively quiet weekend, with no plans but it was just what I needed. I had made a list late on Friday night with everything I wanted to achieve, and looking at the list now, late on Sunday evening, I can see I have not completed a handful of tasks but perhaps the biggest is this blog. I gave myself eleven out of fourteen. How well does a 79% completion rate go down?

I got up early enough yesterday morning and after breakfast headed into town, I had to get my suits dry cleaned and then buy some pasta sauce for the evening meal. The pesto had already gone out of date. I returned back to the flat and started a clean up operation before catching Click on BBC News (via the computer). Then I wasted away several hours on the computer, achieving very little, although I did clear all the receipts and make a big pile of documents to shred, which was rather satisfying. If you do not own a shredder, you will not understand the feeling.

The rest of the day was spent working on the blog. Well the majority of the afternoon was, I also had various domestic duties to complete, such as washing some clothes and cleaning the bathroom. When this was all done, it was way into the evening. I enjoyed the night in and time to myself. It was very much what I needed after several weekends of rushing around all over the place. There was nothing inspiring on television, so after dinner I was back on the computer for a while. Well until midnight in fact, what I was doing, I cannot exactly remember but it must have been both important and productive. At midnight I put on a movie I had wanted to see for a while, How to Lose Friends & Alienate People. It was not what I had expected and even at 1am, I did not have the courage to switch it off, I had to see it through to the end, even though by then I had almost lost the plot. It had a few laugh out moments, some of the dialogue was hilarious but as a end product, there was just not enough. I suppose you have to understand the media world to truly appreciate the subject matter. In any case, it was good to see Megan Fox in her first film role and even her boyfriend make a cameo towards the beginning. At 2am, unable to keep my eyes open for much longer I went to bed. It had been a very long day.

I had set my alarm and planned to be in the gym at 8am sharp. However, when I woke up and check the time on my Boom, it was 8.30am. So much for wishful thinking, I rolled over and went back to bed. It was not going to be a long snooze. I got up at 9am and was in the gym within thirty minutes or so, annoyed with myself for not getting up sooner. I know most people prefer a lie in on Sundays. After the gym, I headed directly to Tesco for some food shopping before returning to the flat and getting on with some odd jobs. I bought Lucozade Sports Drinks as the four packs were on off, BOGOF. Too good to resist and as I think the promotion may last over the summer, I will pick up a few more packs next week.

I had meant to catch Dragon’s Den on Wednesday (15th) but was out, so missed the show. Of course, I could have caught up on iPlayer but opted to watch the re-run on Sunday evening just before Top Gear. A perfect way to end the weekend. I had a very busy week ahead, plus I will be back in Wycombe on Friday night for Reena’s wedding on Saturday and the arrival of both my Mum and my aunty and uncle.
