Return of the assignments :(

Don’t you hate it when it’s late Sunday night and you suddenly realise that the weekend is over but you can’t remember what you did over the weekend that remotely felt like weekend happy activities?

Ok, minus Calv’s birthday party but even that felt like a bit of a mad dash rush to get there and all of a sudden it was all over. It was only afterwards that I realised I still don’t know what Xinchen’s been up to, what everyone’s been doing, didn’t even get to chat with Calv’s mum or sibs save for the couple of sentences exchanged while shivering outside the restaurant after the event.

And the assignments are back in full force again. I’ll be so glad when this is over.

I need one of those weekends where the itinerary goes like this : out of the office at 3pm on Friday. Rush home and start dressing up for a TGIF dinner at a newly discovered eating joint. Bright and early Saturday brekky (good coffee) with friends and family. Saturday afternoon of shopping or a road trip somewhere exploring new parts of Perth. Saturday night at a friend’s house where the whole gang is there and there are long stupid conversations about nothing, lots of laughter, sweet wine. The kind of night that you will reminisce about in the future ‘remember that night when …’ and seems to last forever because no one wants to go home. Sunday morning can be a sleepin, maybe some household chores, something fun like grocery shopping, lots of homecooking, reading books on the couch and lazing in front of the tv with a good movie.

Surely that’s not too much to ask?
