A proper weekend!

Well it's been a while since I've written, and I've been up to a bit! I went on holidays for 10 days, came back to work for 10 days, and then back on holidays for 10 days. And I can tell you that that is a fantastic setup... if only I could afford to do it all the time :( Anyway, what was over a month ago now (19th Aug) I had what I like to call the first 'proper' weekend I have had in over a year! I finished work on Friday afternoon, slept in on Saturday and Sunday morning, and would have been quite happy going back to work that Monday (but I still had another week off!!). Saturday evening I caught up with Vicki and we went and saw Priscilla Queen of the Desert. It was a pretty awesome production (of course!) but the guy who played Flick/Adam (Guy Pearce's character in the movie) had a weird voice that was quite annoying.

As we had been running late for the show we only had time for a quick Subway for dinner. Afterwards we went to a Mexican restaurant and had a selection of yummy foods and a jug of Daiquiri between us. Then it was back to Vicki's for the night. In the morning we had Pancakes with fruit and maple syrup for breakfast - and it was good!! In the afternoon I caught up with Gillian and Veronica, and we went for a bike ride around Hyde Park. The ride was good, but getting a bike was a bit of a hassle! I have tried multiple times to hire one of the Barclay's bike around London, and every single time the terminals, where you swipe your credit/debit card have been disconnected or not working. As it was we tried about 3 terminals before we finally found one that was working, and then we had to basically steal a bike off of other people, there were some many people wanting one...

After a great weekend I had a few days to relax before it was off to Cologne :)
