The Weekend

What a weekend,

Friday:
Went into work for 6:15 so I could leave early for car looking. Left work at 11:15, totally scared as I have now been given an actual task! I think it is going to be very challenging, but that is just what I need right now to build my confidence and to prove my capabilities. Lets just hope it swings the right way!

Test drove a Peugeot 307, and it was a really nice drive and well spec’ed but there was still a Ford Mondeo to drive before I made a decision. Starting off with higher expectations on the Pug, I was soon swayed towards the Mondeo as soon as I sat in the drivers seat, all I can say is what a difference and WOW! Managed to scrape my finances together and I pick it up on Tuesday evening. 03 plate Mondeo Ghia X, cream leather, electric everything nearly. Big thanks to Mr Evans for bringing me back to the oval badge, as I nearly stayed with the V-Dubs.

Saturday:
Spent most of it being tired, but then late evening my dad and I decided to try and sort the pond out, idea is to put them in a temp paddling pool from Woolworths, and clean the pond out. Well it didn’t start off too well, ran out of time as we had to go for a meal. Left the fish in about 1.5ft of water, came back and there were 5 floating on top, DOH. Totally my fault as I was arguing with my dad and we were getting no where. Feel stupid now! Tried to revive them and we managed with one of them but sadly the other 4 died.
Meal was very nice, went to an Italian in Studley, called Carlo Ristorante (01527 853047), recommend it.

Sunday:
Spent all day clearing the pond out and throughout the day we have decided to take walls out, restructure things, and all in all not a bad day. Except that I have now managed to put a hole in the very bottom base on the pond. Need it to dry before we can re-fibre glass it, and with the current weather we could be waiting a long time. So god damn!!!
Just about to go out and see Shrek 3, yay, I seriously need a wind down to the weekend, been so hectic and upsetting along the way.

Role on the week ahead.
