Putting my new ground anchor into the floor in the side passage so I can lock my bike up outside of the shed ready for commuting again asap . That and filming my four year old daughter playing an angel in some kind of Greek nativity play.
Quiet night in tonight - but that is an excuse to cook something elaborate and time-consuming. Tomorrow I'll be out on the MTB in the morning. Then in the afternoon I'll be having some axe and chainsaw fun in the garden (not a psychopathic rampage but cutting up wood). Then I'm going clubbing 'til very late so I suspect Sunday will be a bit of a write-off.
Very lazy, and it's the company annual do on saturday - all drinks free. Last year the Works Manager was 'asleep' by 10, no staying power. This year fancy dress is optional, so me and Mrs C are going as the miserable gits who wouldn't dress up.
I think Ive retired the summer bike so Saturday morning I'll take Sirrus (flat bar road bike) out on a club run. Its my sisters b'day, so its there on Saturday night. Sunday I'll probably start my Christmas shopping.
I'm thinking of going to the Manchester art gallery on Saturday, as I haven't explored it as yet. I'm doing some writing, as I'm hoping to join a writer's workshop on Tuesday nights, so need something to get into enough shape that it can be torn apart by some contemporaries.
Then dinner party on Saturday night with a couple of friends, at which I'll watch some comedy and drink some drinks. Sunday I am not going on the club run, as I can't be bothered, but shall perhaps be in the library.
A deeply boring weekend in all, then.
was meant to be at work's do tonight (free food, booze, entertainment, cab home) but have got a horrible cough and i feel shite to boot (not helped, i imagine, by my commute today). so i'm sat here in front of the mac posting on this forum and loading the ipod i'm getting for christmas.
Tomorrow, I'm going to present an invoice for a job I did last year at this time (don't ask! ) and Sunday I might try for a gentle roll around Richmond Park and see the trees in a different way, before jousting with the inevitable shopping people in their massive vehicles, negotiating the swampy rutted tracks of Richmond town centre
Saturday I have an early start with a training course I've arranged. People better turn up or heads will roll! Then it is the Xmas party. Free dinner and subsidised bar (£1 a drink). Can't wait. Because I don't drink anymore as a matter of preference, I can get pissed really easy. Last year I was wasted after about £3, and spend the evening dancing like a muppet, was great fun.
Sunday I intend on staying in bed for as long as possible.
Just started a short story, can't think of a name for it, but, a bit like Brief Encounter (what a film), it is about a doomed relationship that happens on a train journey. Quite happy with it so far: just realised that the writer's group are actual published writers, which whilst useful, is very scary indeed. So, got to really polish some of my work, luckily I have a couple of published pieces that I can fall back on as an intro to my work.
