Friends and a Walk
I was out in London for work on Wednesday. I met one of my favourite colleagues and we had lunch together. Honestly, I'd go to the London office if it was a bit nicer and less crowded just to hang out with them but it's not - at least not yet. Had a project meeting and finally met people that I've worked with for the past 2 years for the first time. Following that, Yen and I met up for dinner and had ice cream (which wasn't as good as Bilmonte).
KI and I was in a meeting together where I had raised something - I then started overthinking about how I feel like I didn't make sense. Then he told me to shut up because I did fine. I'm so thankful for people like him sometimes. I spent half the day on Friday in the office and headed home at lunch because I had to babysit a 21 year old.
We went out for dinner with my work friends, it was quite good. I remember when we started this whole after work hang out group, I was always the one planning the outings. I got tired and decided that I didn't want to do it anymore. And since then... we haven't had any. But KI is going back home for Eid so he decided to catch up with everyone before he leaves. It's been awhile since we all got together like that and I enjoyed it. To be fair, I don't usually feel the void because I'm always over at M & D's. But we have collectively agreed with the team that we'd do a monthly meet up at least.
Saturday was great!
It didn't start off so well because I was really missing my Scotland trip. It was this day last year when we were up at the Isle of Skye. I didn't dwell on it too much because mum called. Argued with her for a bit about how no one should be embarrassed to eat or drink if they're not fasting. We all know that there are circumstances where you wouldn't need to fast. That's all there is to it. But it didn't go any further because we laughed it off instead of bickering about it.
I was meant to go to H, J and B's to pick up something in the morning but they were off early so I knocked at M & D's door instead. K didn't shut up the whole day about how I woke him up too early. We had breakfast that D made and he whined about how if M was around, I would be so quick to help out in the kitchen but when she isn't, I'd let D do everything.
M picked us up from Bourne End and then I went to H, J and B's for a cup of tea. I didn't realise how much I missed them until I got there. So I told them that I think I need to post more things to theirs so I could see them more. But B's grown so tall and it's only been a year. It was such a nice catch up, I'm feeling sentimental now.
I went back to M & D's to plan our Scotland road trip (I'm soooo excited). It concluded the day so well with how I woke up missing Scotland. So there's that to look forward to.
Now - I have clothes in the wash, a lego set to do and a whole day of recovering from the walk yesterday. The weather's not looking good so I'm quite pleased that I won't need to go out just for the sake of making full use of the weather.
