I’ve been saying over and over again that I was not going to do anything at all this weekend. The idea was to lock myself in at home, with my crochet projects, my TV, my PS3 and tons of junk food. I wanted to make a fort (possibly in bed) and read a book under the covers. I wanted to shut my door to the world (both front door and an imaginary me-door).
You might be wondering why, and you would be rightly doing so. The reason is that I’ve had one of the worst weeks in a while. I know, I know, I keep complaining, and moaning, and whining about this all the time, well, scrap all of those past complaints: they mean nothing right now. Anyway, it would be lengthy to explain everything that happened to me this week, and I don’t want to dwell in the past anymore (let bygones be bygones and all that), so I’ll skip the whole story.
Basically, I let myself be convinced to go for drinks after work (thanks Amanda!) and I had fun (thanks everyone, especially my team!). What I thought was going to be an evening of me being antisocial in a corner turned out to be an evening of me laughing a lot and getting quite happy with beer. Still, I managed to leave at a normal hour and not get completely wasted, so I can call the evening a success, and a great way to end the horrible week.
I came back home, still with the idea of becoming a hermitage for the weekend, and with that in mind, I went to bed.
This morning I woke up at 9am. Yes, it’s a Saturday, and I’ve been awake forever! What is wrong with me? I wanted to sleep the weekend away! Well, not just sleep, as I wanted to do other stuff, but you get the point. Suddenly, I find myself in bed, not able to sleep anymore, feeling rested and full of energy… and feeling like I want to get out of the house and, who knows, maybe go to a market, or go to Covent Garden… I don’t know, just get out and interact with people! Somewhere between the third beer and opening my eyes this morning, something clicked in my brain and somewhat changed my mood. The best part is that I want to take my camera with me and go on a trip exploring the city and taking pictures of whatever I find (hum, I’m thinking even Carnaby Street!).
I’ve seen some images of Borough Market, and I think it’s a great place to go camera in hand. I’m still deciding whether to get out already or not, as I know myself and if I don’t use all this energy to clean the house first, I will never do it (and let’s be honest: I’malwaysin the mood for being out and about with my camera!!).
In any case, as soon as I decide where to go, and get some photos taken, you will be the first to know! If you’re out and about today with your camera, show me your pictures and let me know in the comments below!
