There’s a feeling of ‘the calm after the storm’ in our house at the moment because I’m the only one home at the moment. Again. I have no problem with that. Because when my parents aren’t home the house is blissfully quiet.
Waking up this morning was lovely. I woke up naturally by the sunlight flooding my room, a nice message from Haru whom I went to Natcoll with in 2009. Thanks for that, I really needed it. And I got a nice email Fishpond.co.nz. A month ago I ordered the hunger games trilogy from them. Except they sent me an extra copy of ‘catching fire’ by accident. They told me to keep the extra copy. Yay! I’m thinking that I should either sell it and add the money to my Wellington fund or donate it to the Takapuna library.
Anyway, enough with the grumpy blogging. I know nobody likes to read ranty blogs. I’ve decided that I’m going go to Wellington for a break on Sunday. I know it’s not healthy to avoid your problems. But I just need to get out. I’m sure my parents will appreciate the week without me.
Next week is Ryan’s graduation ceremony and Berni is going a little crazy too this week. Her boyfriend recently left for 7 week trip to Europe or something. Normally she’s not the clingy type. But all of a sudden she’s morphed into this crazy organisational control freak . She’s started organising her 21st birthday party. Not that it’s weird or anything. But the way she’s drafted 7 friends to be her ‘organising committee’ to help her is a little… extreme. I mean, I dont think there will be many more than 7 of us going. I got drafted into the ‘graphic designer’ role. GOD. This always happens, graphic designers, I know you feel me on this. How come we always end up designing endless invites, band posters, and other stuff? Oh well, I’m not doing anything with my time at the moment. And Bernadette has been my friend since high school, so I won’t say no.
I’m determined to have a productive happy day today. Even if it’s midday already. I have packing and washing to do. I also have to sort out some things I want to be left in Wellington at my friend’s place. Also if time permits I’d like to talk a walk to the supermarket to get some piping bags for some cupcakes I want to make for a friends birthday.
And more importantly, I don’t want to be home when mum arrives. Whatever time that is.
