Sunday 24th April 2011- Smarden

Today was another one of those tedious ordeals, that I generally put up with cos I know other people want me to be there, next year I'm not so sure I will endure it! May stay home with the boys.
So we said goodbye to the animals and set off to meet everyone at the bat farm. Then walked to the pub, the guys were eating all sorts of rubbish, squid!? Who eats squid as a pub snack?! Madness I tells ya.
I was just worryin about the moggies to be honest, so we went to see the duck race, tedious! On the way back to the farm we stopped at the 'art gallery' well some of us stopped at the art gallery, dad stopped at the one with a bar and beer on tap. We sat out in the garden next to the pond where they had some massive fish, I'd love to go fishing in there. It was so hot. Soon enough we were on the way back to the farm for a barbeque. That was nice. We all had way too much food I think, and enough drinks to feel a little tipsy.
 I was still wishing my cats had their own mobiles, and apposable thumbs to answer them!

Saturday 23rd April 2011- Dreams do come true!

Wow!! I woke up this mornin, in relatively good shape after yesterdays drinking! Mi man woke me with a cup of coffee and said he and his friend were off out to 'hunt' for breakfast, (at the cafe) so I decided to catch up on facebook, and check my blog stats and stuff. A little while later he came back saying he'd been talking to the neighbours about obi's cat friend. and they asked if we'd been feeding it. Well, he told them we hadn't because she's not ours to feed, and they told him that this poor little moggy had been abandoned by other neighbours three doors down, and they were taking it to the cattery this evening! Well mi man told them how fond I am of that little puss already, anmd that he'd talk to me about tsking it in, like he had to! He came upstairs and told me all this. My response was disbelief! I ran out the garden in my pjs to find out if this was true, and sure enough it was! Our neighbours said that when they feed her this evening they would catch her and bring her round to ours, really and truly, I didn't want to wait that long! I leant over the back wall, and whistled. Not even a minute later little moggy paws jumped on the wall right next to me! So I gently picked her up, and took her inside, and the rest, as they say, is history!
We had to go over to our friends for a party this afternoon, almost didn't want to go cos I wanted to stay with the new mog. She was a little nervous about this new situation, and she didn't know where she was.
So we went to our friends for the party, had some lovely food and played in the paddling pool, her dog wasn't sure what to make of it! I ended up spending most of the time there filling up balloons with water, didn't get to throw many of them though.
We didn't really stay there too long, I wanted to get back and check on the cats.
 So when we got home, a certain little someone had pooped in the hall, and it weren't Obi, poor little bugger, I don't think our new cats very well, mind you. We don't have a clue what she's been eating for weeks! Think someone can sleep in the bathroom tonight! Poor little mite!

Friday 22nd April 2011- Drink!!

After a pretty uneventful week it was good to get out and do something, we all met up for Chambers beer festival. Well the guys met up at the station, me and Fia walked to meet Lisa and take a detour to her friends to pick up some clothes. That was fun, in my new shoes, hadn't even met Lis before my feet were hurting already! Not a good idea the amount of walking we had to do today!
We caught up with everyone near Chambers, before the event had even started, sat outside and waited for them to open! After 5 or 10 minutes I shouted through the door for them to let us in, a few of our group were worried I'd get us all banned before we'd even got in! That would be funny, Wussies!
Finally they opened up shop and we immediately got the drinks in and started our day, I stopped to mousse my hair then cracked on with the Malibu and cokes!
Its real funny being at a beer festival and not drinking beer. Mostly because I know that I like what I'm drinking, and don't waste time trying all sorts of different drinks, when there is probably only a handful that I'd like, well I don't like beer anyways but that's not the point. I don't get this whole tasting every beer in the place thing. Find what you like and stick with it, that's my personal opinion anyways, I know a lot of people would say that's the wrong way to go about life!
So with a few of us there already and some meeting us later we decided to order some grub, and what good grub it was too! I had a big chicken and something baguette! It was really spicy! Most of our lot had got the spicy ribs, so I tried one of Fia's and they were really good! I was dipping my chips in every ones spicy rib sauce! That was fun! I was really bad and had a chocolate mousse pudding, okay two! but they were so yummy!
When everyone had arrived a few more drinks were consumed before we headed down to the Pullmans for a few more! The garden was really nice down there, it had been such a nice sunny day, why we'd spent it in a bar that is effectively the cellar I don't know! But it was nice to be out in the fresh air when I'd only seen the sun to go out and have a fag! Ironic huh. So we sat around a big table, everyone having a laugh and telling jokes that had been sent on our phones. I was getting really angry with myself though by this point, my dad jokes around all calls me tiddling tessie, but today I actually had probably been to the loo at least once every half hour if not more, and by the time we reached the Pullmans it was even worse.
Everyone left a lot earlier than we'd been planning to head back, but we were off to Rileys to play pool anyways so it didn't matter too much. Where I'd been threatening to go back to ours when everyone else left(cos my feet hurt) I think mi man was pissed with me that I changed my mind and wanted to stay out a bit longer! We had a good time though, the guys played snooker, and I kept the scores! I played his friend at pool, and won! There's no beating mi man though, no chance Kitty!
On the way home we stopped at Tesco's to get some fags and so they could get nibbles and went home to watch 2012, seen it about 5 times now but I still love that film! I took my shoes off after a little while, got a piggy back some of the way home too, bonus!!
Sorry Fia! We drank some of your So co whilst we watched the film, I didn't let him eat your daim bar though!! Was a bloody good day!

Thursday 21st April 2011- Town, coursework and Chillin' Out!

Was so cool that Fia stayed round last night. We were up real late talking about loads of madness. Weren't even that drunk! Haha, good old times, hopefully soon she'll remind me what we were talking about! So didn't want to get up this morning!
Me and Fia went to town today. We went to Costa's and had an iced coffee, that was lush! Then we went to New Look and I got a new pair of shoes! They wicked cool! Love em! Fia got a white boob tube like mine! We gotta make sure we never wear em on the same day when we together now.
 It was so hot outside today, so when we got back from town we sat out in the garden and I did my sketchbook for a bit, don't how I'm going to keep up with my blogs when I start uni, is hard enough now! But we sat outside, and listened to our music all loud, with a few so co and cokes, was a wicked day!
The pigs came outside to chill in the sun with us for a bit! that was fun! Tried to keep them out of the sun most of the time though, especially my Squeakles, cos he is mostly black, I thought he'd probably get hot quicker. Love them! My Obi came and sat with us for a bit, but he found he favourite cozy spot by the door and stayed there the majority of the day!
 I know several people that do not understand the concept of chillin' out! Is kinda like meditating but in a less mind-consumed way, and instead of clearing my mind I seem to fill it with loads of random thoughts and questions, like, do butterflies worry about how they look?, and, how big does a cat have to be, before its a tiger? Why does a bee think it always has to work? and does a bee even think? I love bee-ing me, ha ha.
That's what friends like Fia are here for, to ask random questions and debate nonsensical topics, and some quite deep ones too! Really wish I could remember what we were talking about last night!
Fia's staying with me tonight as well, and coming out with us tomorrow, then mi mans got his friend staying tomorrow night, we ain't gonna be alone until Saturday, Oh well, what a pity never mind! Jokes, lol.

Wednesday 20th April 2011- All good fun!

I really don't like being here on my own! Simple answer, go out to work same time as mi man does, then my boys will be on their own allday! Can't win! I don't like leaving my boys on their own allday, but when Obi spends most of his time sleepin, and the pigs do their piggle thing, I suppose it ain't that bad.
I went to meet Sofia in town, so she didn't have to walk all the way over on her own. Didn't stay there too long though. We headed back and did our girli things, watchin telly and trying to come up with the next big ideas for my projects! I did write back to my friend this evening. Took ages too but I just wanted to get it finished and sent quickly.
We had a wicked day though, from what I remember of it!

Tuesday 19th April 2011-Home

Do you know how many of my friends/family have birthdays in April? I'll tell you, Lots! I have one friends on the first, one on the fourth, two of my friends share a birthday on the 14th! mi mans mums was yesterday, and his sister-in-law is next Friday! There's a few in between, distant cousins and old friends I don't really have much to do with anymore, still a lot.
One of these friends, I got a letter from today, I may have mentioned a few weeks ago I was writing to a friend (a little late) for his birthday, well I got a reply today, and I was so shocked I didn't know what to say! I'd have to tell you now it has been a little while since we've spoken. Wasn't even sure if I'd get a letter. Writing a letter was really all I could to break the ice after such a long time. It was nice to get a reply, but it just gave me so many more questions than I thought I would want to ask. Maybe I'll reply tomorrow.
Went back to mums for the day today, wasn't all that much happening. I went round to the pub for a few drinks with some good friends this evening, that was nice, sitting out in the beer garden having a chat. I fell asleep before I went I was that tired, really haven't been sleeping right, think is too much playing my new Sims 3 on my phone before I go to bed! Not a good idea!
Was a nice evening at mums trying to get on track with my blogs. Nearly caught up too! Ooops!
