What I did on My Bank Holiday

Hello Imaginary Readers! Actually I suppose you are less imaginary now, since some of you commented on the Aliases post. Good to know you like them anyway.

Did you have a good Bank Holiday? Was it hot and sunny where you were? Yes? Then you can just roll over and DIE now. It poured with rain virtually the Entire Weekend. So glad we didn’t go camping.

On Friday my dear, lovely friend Heidi–who-lives-in-Austria and her new man J2 turned up for an evening of jolliment. Yes. Suffice it to say that the next morning J2, who is not used to our little ways, was staring at his plate of bacon and eggs sweating profusely and making frequent trips to the loo. Me? I was chomping my way through a burger, swigging coffee, gossiping with Heidi and trying to convince her to move back to Bristol because she is Ace. Liver of steel me. Are there photos I hear you ask? No, because I forgot the camera.

That afternoon FrenchFancy and I went shopping for pretty dresses to wear to the various weddings we have this summer. The Fancy looked gorgeously pretty in everything and I looked like a 5’6” pear, but y’know. I’m not jealous or anything. No.

On Monday Fishboy, the Fancy, OwlLover and I attempted to walk in Ashton Court, but swiftly gave that up when it started pissing with rain. Again. So we sensibly repaired to my favourite pub, the Adam & Eve on Hopechapel Hill and drank some restorative cider. Purely for medicinal reasons you understand. Then we staggered walked quickly back to the Fancy Owl Nest for some of OwlLover’s macaroni and cheese. Whereupon I made a pig of myself and ate 2 large helpings. Because sometimes? Mac and Cheese is IT.

How was your weekend Imaginary Readers? Let me know.

Well, I wouldn't say that Bristol Girl, ther were a good many dresse that you looked good in. But we were just looking/window licking (not buying). I was just lucky to find the £35 one before you and therefore bought it!

We will go again and find a bargain ... there is still plenty of time.

The only rain that we met was in the bloody car trying to get to and from the Sun of Kent.

The Sun of Kent, idiosyncratic aristocratic title of the month...

more tea needed, methinks.

the rain weren't that bad...the highlight of the day for me was the pathertic boomerang that not only didn't come back but flopped like a flap of foreskin in a limp wind! Glad you like the mac and cheese....comfort food to die for!

oh bless him...to be fair..he's usually a pretty hardened drinker himself! It's most unusual for me to be fine (I was also tucking in to my particularly yummy veggie breakfast)and him to be pale and sickly! A FAB bank holiday...well, if not weekend, evening and morning!
