By the looks of things it is going to be a rather wet weekend. I like the sound of that, the perfect opportunity to sit at home, watch chick flicks from the sofa and eat popcorn (or the rest of the homemade butterscotch on the kitchen bench.
Of course I wont be vegetating all weekend because, before I knew it was going to be a wet one I booked the whole thing up. *mild grumble*
Actually, it might not be all bad… I am spending the whole day tomorrow at a singing workshop as hosted by these rather clever people The Idea of North. I spent 3 years learning to sing at a performing arts college and since then rather got the stuffing knocked out of me at work… Don’t ask how work can undermine your confidence as a singer… it is all a bit too dull.
Anyway, I haven’t sung in public for more than 18 months with one or two exceptions and I decided that it would be lovely to just go and sing for fun rather than get all tangled up in the worshipping God kind of singing I have been used to. (Lovely though that is as well… of course)
So, that is tomorrow accounted for with an evening of sitting on babies to pay for the workshop.
Sunday I have a picnic at this beach* all planned out but no cunning plan in case or rain… I am going with Bet and she is coming to church again with me afterwards… so need to think of a plan B… Maybe the movies… I still haven’t seen this… so that could become an option.
The cherry on the top is that Monday is a Public Holiday!!! Hoo Ray
Might go for a long drive to the Blue Mountains or the Hunter Valley or even the Southern Highlands for Tulip Time. Of course, if the weather stays lousy Monday will be the stay on the sofa with the DVD remote day…
*This beach is actually called Palm Beach… not Summer Bay and is loooong and gorgeous… and expensive to park at… but does anyone have a favourite autograph they would like me to get from a cast member should one be lurking around? (I’m serious actually – celebs at Palmy are not an unusual sight!)
In fact… I think it is going to be rather a good weekend all round!!!
BTW – have any of you tried speed dating??? Got any stories??? I am wondering if it might be a good place to get inspiration for this blog… Anyone? (*whispers* You don’t have to leave your name…)
