Who didn’t do it?

Well, no-one reminded me to write, so I forgot until now… so let’s see if I can bring you up to speed with what’s been going on. It’s late, so I might just get bored halfway through, or just plain fall asleep.
Tuesday was my sister’s birthday, so I spoke to her a couple of times. I love the postal system – I always leave posting cards to the last possible moment, and 90% of the time they get there on time. Amazon even delivered her present on the day :o)
My day off lectures was spent… erm, working on my coursework that is due on Friday. In the evening, I had a quick drink (WKD) and a couple of games of ISS.
Today I got up for my 10 O’clock lecture which was, as usual, basically a chance for the lecturers to see how our group courseworks are going (this one’s due a week today). Then it was off home in the glorious sunshine, which I enjoyed muchly.
Then it was FOOTBALL time – so I went off to the 5-aside pitch at “Chilwell Olympia” (a.k.a. a school sports facility) where 17 of us played a few games. Was very hard work today since it was so hot – dread to think what it will be like when it gets hotter! Think I’ll need to take more than a 2L bottle then!
Got back from footy, showered and went straight out to another meeting about my group coursework. And since I was on Jubilee for that I went to the library to pick up the dissertation I had reserved to read through – the story in Read More explains the funniness of this.
Then I went to see “Little Rachel” as she is known around here. Hadn’t seen her in ages, and ended up talking for nearly 2 hours about love, work and lots more. Was good to catch up.
Then back here (about 10.30 now) to have some dinner, which Simon and Rob had kindly cooked and left for me to warm up – mmm Spag Bol!
Then after some work, another WKD and some more ISS.
And now – bedtime.

Another day

Oh how annoying, I just lost this entry because I checked a link to Simon’s homepage and my browser crashed… So here’s a new version!
Friday I worked on a coursework, photocopying and reading mainly – only one more day to do on that and it’ll be sorted.
Yesterday I went to see Huddersfield Town vs Notts County at Meadow Lane, Notts. We (Town) lost, which was annoying, but I guess I didn’t want to see County get relegated (which they would have done had we won), and we played crap, so all-in-all not too bad. Don’t have any hopes for us in the promotion though – Brentford to beat in the semi…
Then, for Simon’s birthday, we went out to Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem (apparently the oldest inn in the country – 1189AD!), then on to The Roebuck (Wetherspoons) on St James’ St, which was a lot cheaper, but didn’t serve the lovely “Olde Tip Ale”. Then we all (8 of us) came back here and had a bundle of fun – let’s hope we get to see the pictures!
Now to bed, with a view to getting up and going ot church in the morning, although this is unlikely now, I’m gonna give it a go.
Night fans.

Mmm beer

Well, after a dinner of sizzle and stir chicken, I did some more work and then we headed out to the “Leicestershire Poacher” (I think) on Mansfield Road to experience some “real beers”.
The beer was nice, I had a pint of each of Bateman’s XB, Bateman’s Dark Mild and Fuller’s London Pride. All very palatable, thought the DM was my favourite.
I think Simon and Rob also sampled: Cropton’s King Billy (which huggie didn’t finish) and Gale’s HSB
On the way home I had my first taste of a meaty kebab! A chiken tikka with salad, mayo and hot chilli sauce from Charcoal’s… mmm very nice.
Well, I’m going to watch a film now and head bedwards.
UPDATE: for “watch a film”, read “play counter-strike”
