The neighbours have lulled me into a false sense of security - not that I am complaining but I was expecting a little noise over the weekend and I got NOTHING! Hmmm. I think that there might be a decent party brewing - watch this space.
Spent a little bit of money over the weekend on fabric - very pretty fabric, very expensive fabric. I think I might have gone a little girly. Interesting thought. Reason for my spending - I have a new overlocker that I want to play with. I thought a few new skirts were in order. Might have to take some photos of them when I have made them and post them on here (something new to learn).
Saturday night I spent in the city - I have recently discovered that driving in the city is a bit of fun. Take a firm hold of the steering wheel, aim at where you want to go, make a decision to go and then deviate at the last second. I am excited that I learnt this quite quickly on Saturday night.
Why was I in the city? I caught up with a couple of friends and we saw the movie "Across the Universe". Loved it. Beatles soundtrack with an amazing story - a little long (about 20 minutes or so). We had dinner at a noodle house where I believe the standard has dropped since I was last there. What is the story with using seafood filler in their dishes? I hate it - in fact I dont know many people who like it at all. Ruined a perfectly good meal.
One of the amazing things that happen in my life is the fact that I have completely random acts occuring. This weekend the random act was a guy asking directions to get to the cinema (where we were going as I discovered). He and I chatted as we walked along the road to the cinema. Nothing unusual here except for the fact he decided that it was important to impart the views he had about the farmers in the area where he was from. In his humble opinion all city folk have NO IDEA about the real plight of farmers and he felt that it was his duty to actually change this view person by person. He told me of the argument that he had with others before he talked to me. It kept me amused for a short amount of time. I will have to take a tally of the random acts as they occur and keep you all informed (my humble 2-3 readers).
