So it’s gotten to Friday & the working week is done, a pleasant weekend in London awaits. The truth is that this has perhaps been one of the quietest weeks I’ve had in months & months. I have managed to spend the princely sum of 60p this week… that that was on a packet of McCoy’s Flame Grilled Steak crisps from the vender in work.
The reason for this cost saving week is a combination of coming towards the end of the month (pay wise) and trying to see it through after moving Dina over to Belfast – a process that turned out to be more expensive than I’d imagined. It’s given me an opportunity to weed out those Chicken fillets which have been lurking in the freezer & to bake some cookies and brownies so that I have something sweet to go with dinner.
Also, it being a quiet week, I’ve taken the chance to give the place a bit of a clean & tidy. Catching up on laundry, dishes & such means that the house is now feeling stress free, so it’s all good. I’ve also been catching up on TV, with the end of season one of ‘Boardwalk Empire’ on SKY Atlantic HD and also watching the opening episodes of ‘Spartacus: gods of the arena’ and reliving the good old days with season one of the ‘X-files’.
As well as all of that, I managed to catch Tottenham Hotspurs crash out of Europe in fashion and Chelsea fail to overturn Manchester United – and Fernando Torres fail to score again. I even watched a bit of Norwich City’s victory over Nottingham Forest tonight on SKY Sports.
Having caught up on TV, sport and my domestic duties I’m looking forward to the weekend. Tomorrow I’m planning to head over to watch a parade in the city & on Sunday I’m also considering taking a short 15 minute dander over to Tower Bridge to watch about 3 minutes of the London Marathon – I reckon 3 minutes will be enough as it will simply be a procession of people running past me… as about exciting as watching a Formula One race when Schumacher was in his prime.
So things are quiet, but things are organised… and that keeps me happy. For now.
