On Saturday morning, Mrs RC took me to do something that I had never done before. I was really unsure about it, especially as I have never paid for it be for. In the end it was OK, Mrs RC watched the whole thing and when we left I felt like a new man. My new hair cut is great - it is just like the old one, only slightly layered so I get more curls. I have been at work for an hour and no one has noticed - even when I told someone they did not seem to believe me! Love it!
In the evening we went to a niece's 21st birthday party. It was in a pub in the town and the start of the evening was not encouraging when someone was found snorting cocaine in the toilets. There was a bit of a fight as he was thrown out but that was the end of it. The rest of the evening was great, especially when my niece's boyfriend proposed to her. We were trilled to see that. She is such a lovely girl and he is such a nice guy - it is always a worry that the younger ones will fall for some complete slime ball, isn't it? Now the real fun will start - Mrs RC seems to have been appointed as chief wedding planner!
Sunday was a lazy day, the highlight being me and Mrs RC slobbing on the sofa and watching Rock of Ages. Not a fan of any of the stars (Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin), but I had heard good things about it so watched it expecting it to be OK. It was actually very funny - and Tom Cruise is very good at playing the arrogant ass... My favourite scene was the Boy and the Girl talking about how bad life has been to them since they split up.
Her: I am a stripper!
Him: I am in a BOY BAND!
Her: OK, you win...
So now it is Monday again. This morning was cold, grey and miserable, but the sun is out now so, hopefully, it will be nice by lunchtime - I want to spend an hour in that garden writing more of my zombie book...
