My lovely weekend by auntiegwen age 43 and a bit

This weekend I could have been

a - in Amsterdam at a bloggy meet up seeing The Bitch who is Dutch and Penelope.

b - In Cambridge with an ex who is being very flirty.

c - Visiting another friend who lives far ish away for a weekend of gossip, giggling and wine.

This weekend I will be

a - having a 2 for 1 pub meal with my friend Eileen tonight, still nice but not quite Amsterdam.

b - unable to visit anyone unless they live within walking distance or on bus or train routes.

c - completely on my own. This never ever happens.

This is beacause

a - I am getting divorced and the ex mrauntiegwen is becoming mightily sniffy about my "extravagant lifestyle" yep, he actually did say that. Best not to pop off to Amsterdam this weekend then.

b - due to my own goldfish memory and the fact I am stupidly busy at work, I remembered on the 1st of October that my road tax runs out on the 30th September. So instead of walking to the post office and buying a disc, I thought "oh before I forget, I'll do it online, it'll be quicker"
completely forgetting it would have to be posted to me and now I can't feckin drive till it arrives.

c - and I am as cross as a bag of cats because this is the first time on 2 months on a Saturday night I will have no children and could get up to mischief.

oh yes it's a glum auntiegwen this weekend.

Damn, damn, damn.

So it's a party round at Auntie Gwens. Bring your own booze and snacks.

NB - thanks for that I'm surprised you stopped from posting my address !!!!

Working Mum said...

Nota Bene - exactly what I was thinking!

Auntie Gwen - no consolation I know, but you've just reminded me that I need to book my car's MOT. Sorry. Open a bottle and have a drink at home enjoying the fact you don't have to be designated driver or pay for a taxi.

Expat mum said...

I have an inkling you'll be blogging!

auntiegwen said...

WM - you're more than welcome and I'm glad I'm useful for something

Expat Mum- yep, I'm sure I owe MMM a post

I get to have a whole week of days like your weekend. My girls are going on a Mexican cruise with their dad, and I won't have the money to go anywhere myself (partly because I just impulsively spent $200 on decorations for our pad). So if you come up with any great ideas of something to do that doesn't involve a cleaning rag or a scrub brush, let me know. Cheers!!

I know the feeling! Adrian has resigned himself to staying indoors all weekend to work on his PhD so we can't get up to anything fun - plus it's really fecking windy in Glasgow.
