The past few days have been so much fun.
I hadn’t been out of the house since Sunday and it was a well nice to get of the house on Tuesday. Rob came to pick me up in his dad’s car but because the silly moo woke up too late, we didn’t have enough time to go to Bluewater – so, we just went back to his house and his aunt, uncle and cousin were there. His aunt was going round taking a load of pictures, I was like, “Oooh, boy!” Haha. But it was still fun and like his family are really nice as well.
Yesterday, I went to Pizza Hut with Rob in the afternoon and we met up with some of his friends and they were really nice and I FINALLY got my Christmas presents from him as well 🙂 There was a problem with the delivery and it took ages to come. First, it was because of the snow but then it was just that ParcelForce are gay, haha. But, anyway, I got two iPhone covers (pink & white), a super mini mouse for my laptop and Cooking Guide game for my DS. It is such a cool game as well; you can all different kinds of recipes from different countries. I definitely want to try out some of the Chinese recipes and some other things as well. I’m really into cooking at the moment especially since I’m away at uni and have to cook for myself now as well. Since I’ve come back home though I’ve made lasagne, pasta bake and chicken biryani. A welcome relief to mum because obviously she’s the only one who can cook in the house now that I’m gone, haha.
Also, I went to see Tron: Legacy 3D with Mutay last night. SO AWESOME! I really want to watch the old one as well (1982), I downloaded it last night so I’ll be watching that some time soon. It was nice to hang out with Mutay as well; I miss hanging out with her – it’s been way too long. We did a bit of shopping and got each other calendars for Christmas. I got her a Man U calendar and she got me a David Tennant calendar – very ecstatic with that 😀
Today, Mama, Donna and I went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park which is SO cool. We walked around a bit before we went to collect our tickets and they had all different kinds of stalls selling different things – kind of like the German Market I went to in Birmingham. I bought a 6oz Angus Beef Gourmet Burger. DELISH. I practically melted when I took a bite. It had cheese and caramelised onions as well. MMMM. I went a bit mad in the pick ‘n’ mix and bought loads of sweets and also a glass bottled coke 🙂
We went to collect our tickets and finally got to go ice-skating. It is SO much fun; even though I fell down like twice but we shall move on from that. I’m pretty much good at skating now because I don’t have to hold onto the sides or anything I just need a bit more confidence to skate in the middle which my mother was insisting I do. My sister hadn’t been iceskating before so she was taking really slow, bless her. I went round the whole rink a load of times though which I was well proud of!
After iceskating, Mama paid for us to have a ride on the bumper cars which was fun, as well. Donna was controlling the pedal and I was driving – I had a lot of fun bumping into the other cars. After that I met up with Mutay after a whole lot of confusion on Mama’s part because she decided we should take the bus up to the Oxford St. but we jumped on the wrong one and ended up in Victoria. But, we finally made out way there and we split up and I went shopping with Mutay for an outfit for tonight because it’s my friend’s 19th birthday thing and we haven’t seen each since like August, so we have A LOT of catching up to do, haha. The amount of walking I did today was ridiculous, though. My feet were knackered by the time I reached home. I’m relaxing a bit now before I leave to party my socks off. I refuse to spend a lot tonight because 1. It’s London, not Coventry so that means sky-high prices. I already miss my £1 shots 🙁 2. I have a mother to get home too; even though I’m of legal age and can drink, I’d rather not have my mum give me a disapproving look for being drunk. Being drunk is a nice feeling but the morning after kills 😐 I’m going to see the fireworks with Rob and his mates tomorrow night for New Years Eve which will be really exciting because they’re going to be by the London Eye 😀 Fun times. Gonna be visiting family the first few days of the New Year which will basically mean late Christmas presents and… money! My loan comes in January as well, wahey. Fares are going up here in London now though which is ridiculous! We already pay £1.20 if you have an Oyster card on the bus but now it’ll be £1.90 which is really gay 😐 And the tube prces andsuch have gone up by 30p. The Mayor of London is stupid. I just roll my eyes at him because really, what else can I do? Hmph. Free travel on all transport from 23:45 until 4:30AM tomorrow though because of the New Year, so definitely going to make use of that. It’s going to be so good, seeing into the New Year with my boyfriend. Good times.
Time to wrap up this post because I have to straighten this bush that I call hair, haha. See you guys in the New Year!
