I think the best kinds of weekends are ones that have a mix of social time, time hanging out with friends, and down time to just potter and futz about, you know? This long weekend was a pretty good mix of both I have to say, with the balance tipped a little in favour of socialising.
Friday night I had dinner with friends, Saturday a demi-successful* shopping expedition and coffee with more friends, Sunday afternoon a fun session of knitting at the pub and then a Sunday night barbeque with other friends. Sunday night was a late one, so I had what amounted to a sleep in for me (7.45am) and ended up skipping a breakfast that some other friends had organised. Instead I took some of that down time for myself and spent the day puttering at home, defrosting and cleaning out the refridgerator, doing laundry, and watching DVDs of "Arrested Development". It was nice, but by the end of the day I had that itchy feeling like I should have been out socialising!
So, a good one. Catching up with so many friends that I don't see all the time was great. Oh, and my sparkling, fresh smelling refridgerator gives me a visceral pleasure that only a goal achieved can bring.
* We went to Prints Charming and despite a sign on the door saying that they reopened on Saturday, they were shut. I've sinced noticed a footnote on their website saying that they reopen on 4th February. Mixed messages guys!
