70th birthday parties

On Saturday we went down to a family friend’s 70th birthday party. My parents came round at about 10:30, and shortly afterwards some friends of theirs arrived to drive us the relatively straightforward journey down to (near) Heathrow. Unfortunately, the north circular was rather busy so it took us a bit longer than it should have to get there, but we managed in the end! We got there at about 2:15 or so. So that was quite a good afternoon, it was good to see people who I hadn’t seen in a while and afterwards we went over to see my sister and niece and nephews. So all in all it was rather a good day! I’ve put some photos up on Flickr if you’re interested.

On Sunday we went to church in the morning. We stayed on afterwards to practice a couple of songs we’re going to be singing at Christmas – two Graham Kendrick songs! I really can’t sing from music so I’m going to have to practice at home, fortunately we were given the sheet music so I can play it on the piano and learn it that way.

Check out my new online project:

In the afternoon we didn’t really do much… in the evening we watched “Blazing Saddles” (a Mel Brooks film) and then Top Gear. We watched ‘Blazing Saddles’ because a friend of ours recommended it. He apparently doesn’t like Spaceballs, though. Now I don’t know about that… I actually didn’t like Blazing Saddles that much. It was quite random, had its good moments, and of course was very silly, but in general it just didn’t have such a coherent storyline as Spaceballs, and I don’t think had quite the charm.

So there you go, that was our weekend!
