(The wrong) trousers

Today's maginificent feat of idiocy has been to forget my trousers.

Consequently, I am sitting at my desk wearing shorts (with socks) with my legs under a fleece.

I am also slightly ill.

There is a distinct possibility that I may still be drunk from last night. Went out for "a couple of drinks" which turned rapidly into a few too many drinks and "Oh god I've missed the last train". Something I also managed to do the night before, only the night before I was sober enough to cycle to Clapham and go home from there. I am having a bad week.

Last night (after having cycled down the Mortlake Road without my back light which I'd left on my desk) I realised that the only option was to stay at Crazy phil's house, who then proceeded to spend the entire night fidgeting and who's friend phoned him at about 6am and who then watched wildlife programmes for ages until he decided it was time to go to sleep.

On a positive note I did manage to acquire some good subliminal knowledge (in my half asleep state) about Tapiers, which are apparantly a cross between a horse and a pig and are just a few evolutionary steps away from being a horse. I then had some crazy dreams about showjumping Tapiers.

Shepheds pie!

It 's the end of an era. Joshua the wondercat (aged 17) has finally died. Poor old man. He was a very good pet. Really kind and old. But we think he had a tumour in his stomach and the vet had to give him an injection.

I am making a shepherds (or probably a cottage- beef?) pie. How exciting am I?

Have had a hectic week/ weekend once again (quelle surprise, I never go out). All good though! Got my photos back from the rounders which was very funny, although mainly consisted of many pics of James bedecked in toilet roll. Nutter.

Went round to Phil's house on Friday night and helped him design his flier for his gardening business. (he has a white van, it's very exciting!) I think it looks and sounds pretty cool but then again I am not very artistic so it's hard to say! Went to the pub for a pint or 2 afterwards and then had to scamper back to the palace because me and michael were supposed to be going out for dinner - but he'd got delayed at work. Went for a curry in the end which was ideal. Very nice. Haven't been seeing too much of the boy recently so it was good to spend some "quality time" or whatever. The next day he was getting furniture delivered, so we had anticipated a day waiting for Ikea/ MFI to rock up. Mfi, however decided to "rock up" at 7:45, a bit annoying for a Saturday morning and Ikea came at about 12 (although one of the sofas was broken) so breaking the stereotypes and all that.

The evening was Richard's birthday 'do at a pub in Soho followed by the gardening club in covent garden. Had a really good time with somewhat of a random crowd -mainly constituted by women. Went to one of those Sam Smith brilliant cheap pubs. There's nothing better than cheap beer in London (or anywhere for that matter). Managed to fall asleep in Mike's lap on the nightbus home (actually quite out of character for me) and attract some glances from fellow nightbusers, apparantly thinking I was doing unspeakable things.. ehem. (I definitely wasn't). Brilliantly managed to wake up just as the bus was on Central Hill so managed to avoid all nightbus based rage.

Spent the day today sleeping- and following that, trying to, but not leaving Mike's flat for most of the day because of the torrential rain. Pulled out my mouldy tomatos and and cleaned my bike chain this avo. What a good girl.

Very tired now. Have got chocklit.
