Finally, summer has arrived here. It’s the second hot day in a row and there’s more to come. Up until now I haven’t really had to do extra watering because we’ve had so much rain but will have to remember to get out there and hydrate my plants.
I’ve got today off because I’m working tomorrow instead and I normally have tomorrow off. So I’ve had a haircut, taken the dog to the vet for her annual checkup and vaccinations and I even went to Marion shopping centre to try and get some Christmas presents. It was pretty busy there so I definitely will not attempt it when school has finished for the year. I don’t like driving around for 10 minutes trying to find a car park and then I don’t like having to fight my way through people just to get to where I want. Although in this case I didn’t really know what I wanted. It was with great pleasure I arrived back home a little while ago.
Christmas shopping aside I’m looking forward to seeing PJ Harvey on Saturday night. I finally managed to organise babysitting but have a half hour drive each way for pickup and drop off but he will have fun for the night.
Last Friday night was great fun. It was the annual safari suit pub crawl (I built the website) and as usual was a big success. I was a bit unsure about what I was going to wear but pulled it off nonetheless. My friend and I had matching lycra outfits, wigs, flowers in the wigs, false eyelashes and big sunnies for those bright moments. We also (with one other friend) sang a song on Popeye by Pussyfoot (The Way That You Do It). What possessed us to get up in front of 70 of our friends and sing this song a capella I will never know but we only decided on doing it the week before when we had our fairly regular get together for a singing session. We’d questioned ourselves why we were doing it and thought it would be fun and everyone would enjoy it. The worst that could happen would to be laughed at but agreed that wouldn’t happen and it didn’t. Everyone ended up clapping along and having a great time and so did we. I do like performing when it’s something I enjoy and I do like this particular Pussyfoot song. I’m still singing it around the house because it’s one song I know all the words to and Jaycee Junior keeps asking me to sing for him.
