Had an absolutely lovely weekend. Jez and Dez
came over on Friday evening along with Alex
and we played parts unknown which I'd never played before but turned out to be kinda cool as all Cheapass Games seem to. I even didn't come last which is good - normally the combination of alcohol, tea, tiredness and a new game leads me to have not a great amount of success until right at the end but today I managed.
Then on Saturday we did nothing. Absolutely nothing. It was blissful. We didn't even wake up and turn on the radio til midday. Then we lazed around the whole day in bed and then I got up to pick up a few things from Tescos and cook stroganoff. Then we sat around and watched Buffy which was fun although 'The Body' did spoil the mood a bit! I was surprised to discover that it hadn't been spoilered for Alex and so it came as an actual shock to him.
Sunday we went into the city to break in Alex's employee discount card in Blackwells which was fun. I'm going to have to do some serious Christmas shopping in there! We then went for pizza at Pizza Express which was rather nice. I was going to do some more Christmas shopping but couldn't really get inspired so I went home to do a bit of gardening (I've planted crocuses me :) ) and then have a chat with my parents - always fun. Then I made the mistake of settling down with one of the Dick Francis' books I'd bought. A bath and a snack later I discovered that I was now too comfortable and lazy to go out so I skipped OUSFG and finished both Dick Francis' - so decadent.
All in all, just what I needed.
