Well ok, here goes a big catch up I think. Am downloading lots of things, so I figure I may as well do this because nothing else is worth doing over such a slow connection.

Well, I worked a lot more last week than expected! I eventually did a little over 50 hours on the database, half at uni, half in the office. It was well over what I’d predicted, but a) I’m an optimist when it comes to deadlines b) they changed things around a few times. And then to top it off, just as I thought I was finishing it off on Tuesday morning… they realised they had messed up what information they wanted it to print out. Oh well, a couple more days there probably. Imagine if I’d been going to China… how annoying would this all have been? It’s almost as if there’s an underlying plan here.

On the topic of China, I am looking to go to Italy with some (now not so) cheap flights from Ryanair and I need some Travelling partners. At the moment Ol and Liz are both interested and maybe Grant, but I think he’d freak Ol and Liz out or vice versa, but we’ll see. Any more interesting… I mean interestED people – please contact me.

Now I just need to get down and finish off the last few of my Navs letters and then catch up with a few people about them. Hmm, only going to be 2 weeks later than originally planned. I annoy myself sometimes. Will I always be so pants with deadlines and self-motivation? I hope not, cos that would really frustrate me. To de-frustrate me, if you got one of my letters – please email me the reply 😀

Anyway, what did I do last week? Oh yes – lots, that’s right.

Friday I went away with my old church’s young people (my mum normally goes, but was at a wedding on Sat) which was a laugh, although I wasn’t quite sure if I was meant to be all responsible or what… but I enjoyed it! I feel all mature around people that are more than 5 years younger then me – that’s a nice feeling I don’t get very often :@)

Then on Saturday I passed the baton to my mum and headed off to Liz’s party at Combe Bank, her old school, which was to celebrate her 21st, her leaving the country and her mum’s 40th. What a night! Free champagne, beer and wine ALL night. A live band ALL night (which got a little tedious, since they were playing all songs from one era). And a few people I haven’t seen in a LOOOONG time. All in all very good.

Sunday was church in the morning, followed by a goodbye meal for the Campbells, who I know a bit. I got all emotional during the speeches even though I don’t know them THAT well. I’m such a girl sometimes.

Sunday evening we went to see Scooby Doo. I had been told it was really bad, so I expected very little from it… so I was pleasantly surprised. I think it’s on a par with Spiderman, but felt better because there was a lot less hype over it. See it if you liked the cartoons, but don’t expect it to make you young again.

Yes – there’s more! But I’ll back date this one a bit, then write another entry for the past couple of days.
