Sometimes life won't leave you alone
I couldn't think of an appropriate title so took that from a Pearl Jam song, although it makes it sound as if things have been really bad lately which isn't the case.
The weekend was one of the best I've had for a while actually, and it wasn't even that anything super special was done, it was just carefree. On Saturday I went out to lunch with Virginia and Nicole who I haven't seen since Gin got married in February so that was great, we saw stacks of photos of course and had a nice afternoon. The rest of Saturday involved Ivan and I playing hours upon hours of Sacred. Such a good game, even despite all the bugs in it. We stopped to watch Kill Bill which I liked, but usually I love Tarantino films and this was just so-so. I was expecting some cheesiness like in the old Japanese movies, and I got it, and I found it amusing, but at the same time that was why I didn't love the movie, was just a bit too much I think.
Sunday was an attempted sleep in and then in the afternoon we went to the creek at Reynella and fed the ducks and the geese. I love feeding the ducks but the geese scare me, I have this vision that I'll be pecked and chased, and so my fear provides Ivan with some free entertainment. From there we went to Darren and Christine's and Alex came along too. We had a BBQ, played Kelly Pool for hours while freezing, then went inside and played some Scattergories. It's weird, we can do very little there but always have a good time because we always have heaps of laughs. We all attempted to stay up and watch the Grand Prix but about half way through the race people started getting tired so we all went home. Ivan and I just *had* to play some more Sacred before going to sleep, sad eh?
With Monday being a public holiday it was time for me to head home, so I didn't actually get to spend Ivan's birthday with him, but after such a great weekend I think it's ok.
Hope you all had a good one, the next one is almost here already!
