@ Georgina – That is so not cool. I wish we had that sort of system (there’s student loans, where the government gives you an amount and you have to use it towards school and such, but you do need to pay it back after, with interest).
I had a good day today. I skipped volunteering (well, I told them last week that I wasn’t showing up!) because my sisters and I had tickets to go see a play in the afternoon. We went out for brunch first with the family, it was to a new restaurant that was having its grand opening weekend. The food was great, they had some issues with servers not knowing the table numbers quite yet. But all in all, the restaurant itself was great. The downside was the other patrons. My sister got yelled at by an elderly woman who entered into the rest room a few seconds after her and my sister had taken the last available stall and had to listen to the woman the entire time going on about how children no longer respected the ‘old people who always need to have respect’ and whatnot… I was cracking up while she was telling us about it.
Anyways, my sisters and I had a great time out! We saw a Shakespeare play and it was really excellently done (A Comedy of Errors), there was some freebies there (small desserts, coffee – bleh, and gift cards to a coffee chain – I’d say bleh to that as well, but they offer baked goods!), which was a nice perk. The line it took just to get a small chocolate dessert was massive, my sisters lined up and I just walked around checking things out during intermission. The gift shop section, stuff like that. It was really fun and afterwards we just spent some time walking around and going window shopping.
I haven’t done a whole lot tonight, but I made excellent headway on my end-of-summer crochet project. I’m making crocheted cupcakes to give away to people on my last day of work. So far I have 5 “vanilla” and 5 “chocolate” cupcake bases and 1 chocolate-coloured “frosting” top. I only have 9 more to go. I’m going to do one in cream colour, a couple in pink, yellow, purple and blue. And then I’ll be stuffing them and finishing them all up. And getting an absurd amount of photos of them all, just because I can. I might even make an extra one to keep for myself (if I don’t get sick of making them?).
Hope your weekend has been excellent! I have 5 more work days!
