Weekend roundup!

I have had a really good weekend; my sister and her husband came to stay in the Shire on Friday night and went home this morning after breakfast. We had a lovely meal on Friday night at the new Carluccios restaurant that has opened in town; we all love Italian food so there were no complaints! On Saturday we slowly woke up and had breakfast then my sister and I went to have our hair cut and coloured. I really love going to have my hair done and it has taken me ages to find a hairdresser that I like but she is lovely and the salon is nice and they do hot chocolate and love hearts- what more could a girl ask for! We deposited the men in the pub so that they could watch the rugby and we took ourselves off into town for some retail therapy. I rarely get to go shopping with anyone other than Mr S so my sister helped me spend some more of my birthday vouchers on a dress for next weekend. Saturday night was very chilled out after a busy day, watched X factor and ate trifle! I am so glad that Daniel has gone; he's a lovely man but he was never going to win and it didn't seem fair that better singers were being voted off over him.

Today I have been REALLY lazy; we took Alfie for a walk this morning in the park and then gave him a bath. Through the power of BT vision I watched the first in the series of Jane Eyre that was on last year. I was reading the book when it was on so I had not wanted to spoil it by finidng out what happens before I had got to it in the book. It is a really good production though and made me want to read a good old classic so I have got my copy of Tess of the D'Urbervilles out which I have been meaning to read for ages. I didn't do any Hardy during my English degree for some reason so I am hoping that he is somebody that I will like as I know some people say that he is too heavy going.

So as you can see I have had a good weekend; I still don't feel 100% though. I feel like I am kind of on the outside looking in a lot of the time because I have so much on my mind. Maybe I will just get used to that or maybe it will change and gradually things will feel normal again. I am so lucky to have such supportive family and friends and I do truly appreciate that but I am starting to realise that it is down to me to change the way I feel and move on with life.
