So… it’s been a while since I did a proper “The Weekend” style post! I thought I’d post one up because I’m sure that you’re missing them 😉
*ahem* On Friday evening, we didn’t do very much, but I don’t really need to say that any more. On Saturday, Phil’s parents came up for the day to put some curtains up: in our living room, since moving in we haven’t had any blinds or curtains there. We did have net curtains but we’re not really a fan of them. A few weeks ago we tried fitting some blinds but unfortunately we couldn’t. So, Phil’s Mum managed to find a guy in their local market who sold curtain material, and thus found us some nice curtains. We fitted them in the morning, and they look really good! I will post up a picture later, if I remember.
On Saturday evening, we went to the chaplaincy for the ‘Mystery Social’, which basically involved Alex and Sarah setting up a whole bunch of ‘clues’ around campus for us to, um, investigate. As it were. Although I am hopeless at lateral thinking type problems, we had a really good time – even if Dan did cheat (albeit accidentally)!
On Sunday morning we went to Fordham, and afterwards were invited to Chris Reynold’s for lunch (which was very tasty). Afterwards we went round to Alex’s, and then went into town with a few other people to watch “Hot Fuzz”. It was … absolutely brilliant! I’d been looking forward to it all week (well, a long while before that actually but particularly the last week), and it definitely did not disappoint. Although it was a little gory in parts, it was absolutely hilarious — it was consistently funny all the way through. Brilliant. I will definitely be buying this when it comes out — as a matter of fact, I might even go and see it at the cinema again before it comes out on DVD! Shocking! But that’s how good it was 😉
