And it truly did. Do you know how the Scotland skies responded to Waz and I leaving this morning? HAIL. Hailstones in nearly-June. Wtf?

It also rained and poured and rained some more all the way there and on and off all weekend. Still, we weren't there to take in the sights but to see a friend I hadn't seen in nearly two years.

Was really lovely! Funny how some people you can go without really being in touch with and things are pretty much as you left them when you see each other again. Her and Waz got on well and all in all there were fun times. Saturday saw the drive up, introductions and chilling out then Suz and I went off to a burlesque night which... while we both looked fabulous and had a giggle was not as good as some of the others I'd been to and we only found the balcony seating until late on, shortly before we had to leave. Lame-sauce. But there were some great acts and some cracking oufits and we drank champagne and strawberries to that was pretty fab.

Sunday saw more chilling out, board games, fish and chips and my first horse-ride in 2 years (last time I saw her). She keeps a horse on loan in a really lovely set up, up in the hills and farmland so we went for a nice gentle hack. Waz came and while he claimed to have ridden before, as suspected he was actually a real novice and we didn't get to go for a bracing run so much as a casual amble. I'd love to get back in the saddle full time but horsies are expensive and time consuming. There are horsies for part-loan for affordable rates but I don't drive and I'd feel awful scrounging a lift 2-3 times a week to play with horses. =D I NEED to learn to drive. This is really starting to bother me.

Anyways, weekend is up. I am tres tired and I am back at work tomorrow. Still, only a few days to Maelstrom ^-^ Woot.

Argh I am SICK of being ill. =(
Spent the whole day with a heavy thick head and sickly feeling. Thankfully poets day was poetic enough to warrent Heather deciding we should go home early. Yey. 4 o'clock finish.

RP was off because our GM randomly had to go to Manchester - YAY. Was totally not in the mood. Instead I spent the evening cake making for tomorrow's 30th. My problem with the friend who hasn't been so friendly lately is solved with her not being able to make it to Leeds for her own birthday bash. I feel bad for her but at the same time it's some weight off because even if I feel half better by tomorrow I'm not going to be in the mood for niceties with fickle people anymore than I am currently in the mood for the noisy-ass drunken neighbours outside my window right now. I hope it rains on them so they go inside.

I made a chocolate orange cake. It's not orangey enough but it's still tasty - I know this because I made mini versions with the left overs. Sadly the main-event is too warm to frost so I have to wait until it is. I'm tired and it's like waiting for paint to dry. Or to die. Not sure. I want to try and find something dragony to put on it tomorrow.

Susie has decided that on our weekend sojourn up to Scotland we are going to Club Noir. A burlesque night in Glasgow. Sounds like a laugh and I'm looking forward to it - just scuppered for outfit ideas. The theme is 'American Dream'. Nice and wide and I have enough bits to cobble together several different outfits with only some additions in the way of accesories. I'm torn between a Playgirl bunny with ears picked up cheap coupled with my flesh coloured fishnets, patent kitten heels in black and my gorgeous black corset. (Need to be brave feeling for this one because of the short skirt/boobs out involved in this one).

Good old country/western girl with boots, my little polkadot tea dress, straw hat and neckerchief - never more have I had an excuse to buy the cowboy boots I always wanted but I'd want a pair that last more than a month and don't have the money to spend on them right now.

OR if I can find a pair of little cute red shoes (something I've also had a hankering for for YONKS) and a cheap white Tee I can totally manage a Dorothy from Wizard of Oz.

So my options are many and largely depend on what I find in the sales tomorrow.

I'm holding my breath for the shoes. Oh shoes. How long it has been since I bought some.
