coffee, tea, and dried apricots

Thought I'd better put up a word of explanation about my likely social hibernation this week- SO MUCH WORK!!! OK, so today was supposed to be a work day (of course, the Monday of a long weekend is always the work day!!), mainly doing art stuff, nothing too urgent, so slept in till about 12:30, read the paper, had some brekky, was writing up all the stuff due this week on my whiteboard... and then in a horrible moment of realisation and intense kicking myself realised I had a big english piece due tomorrow which i had completely forgotten about and hadn't done any research for (it's a piece of persuasive writing on a topic of your choice). So had a restrained freak out about the fact i hadn't even chosen a topic, but then with the help of my marvelous parents found one (ironically on whether 'internet communication (eg blogs) reinforces social isolation, or is it a valid form of social contact?') and got it done...just. Ah well, prob good in the long run, we've got to get used to writing under pressure (i used to do everything the night before it was due, but i'm not as used to it now!).

Anyway, the weekend just been has been a jam packed but fun one- quick recap: Dave came over to my place, and we then youth on friday nite, then on saturday had a shopping spree at Harbour Town (i honestly hadn't bought clothes for a while! inc velvet jacket, couple of tops, and couple of pairs of shoes (inc formal ones!) all for genuine bargain prices!) then shopping for Phil's b'day prezzie in town with Lisa and Ez (oh, the concoction of gifts was quite awesome! lol, we even got a chef's costume for the, shall we say, domestically challenged b'day boy), then got ready with Anne for, and went to Phil's 18th at the Imperial Peking Restaurant (i actually drove with 3 ppl in the car, and we didn't die!) which was a lot of fun, THEN on sunday helped mum with Sparklers (3-4 yr olds) at the 10:30 service (so cute/entertaining!), went to Dan and Phili's to do some work, came back and did Emily's hair for an 18th she was going to, went to music prac then sas, then to Cammo's for a bbq (*sigh* i lost The Game of Life (boardgame) how sad does that sound?! but had a lotta fun doing it...) then dropped Nic and eventually Dave home and returned to my humble abode at around 1:30... Hmm, I think that's got to set the record for the longest sentance, possibly ever.

Been feeling a bit bleugh lately, about different things but I guess in partic still grieving about Tim, as well as the stresses of school... But i'm so glad that i have such supportive friends and family to help me through, i feel very fortunate! Like just hanging out always lifts my spirits.

And btw, i realise now that the photo was kind of asking for it, but seriously guys, did it really need that many comments, it was just a tad over the top. Now children, you'd better have gotten that out of your system :oP Not that i can talk...at all really... but still!!
