I always struggle a little when writing a “The Weekend” post after a bank holiday weekend: three whole days to talk about? I can barely remember what I had for breakfast this morning! (Kelloggs Fruit & Nut by the way. Just so you know).
But I’ll give it a go. On Friday evening, Rich and Martin came round to stay for the weekend. It was alumni weekend at the university, so they were over here from France and Germany respectively. So it was good to catch up with them!
We went onto campus for a drink (the SU Bar hasn’t changed much), and then they stayed on for Spin / Tonic / Fuse (whatever it was called) and we went back home.
On Saturday we went into town to do a bit of shopping and what have you. In the evening we went out to Anne-Marie’s to watch Doctor Who, Nancy and Pushing Daisies. This week’s Doctor Who was pretty good, it was quite a fitting conclusion to last week’s – and the “Are you my mummy?” line was brilliant. It had us all in fits the first time we say it (yes, we are all very sad). I’m starting to get more into Pushing Daisies as well – maybe it’s something that grows on you (like a fungus).
On Sunday we went to church in the morning, came back for lunch and then spent most of the afternoon chatting to Rich and Martin. In the evening, we had Alex and Elisa round for “Star Wars Evening” (May the 4th be with you…), and we watched A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.
On Bank Holiday Monday we decided to go out for a picnic, so the four of us (plus Kathryn, one of Rich’s friends) walked down the Wivenhoe Trail and had lunch near Wivenhoe woods. It was an absolutely beautiful day, a perfect day for a picnic! Afterwards we headed round to Matthew and Ellie’s for a BBQ, which we’d been invited to earlier that day. It was really good fun, and rounded off a really good weekend!
Anyway, I think that’s pretty much everything.
