As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve had my sister to stay with me, it’s been a little awkward as I had to work on Wednesday and my interview on Tuesday took a little longer than I thought it would have, but we spent the evenings together, watched a few movies and caught up, which was nice because although we talk throughout the week, it’s much better to actually see each other.
Yesterday I finally had a full day off and we headed off to Reading for a bit of shopping, a little unjustified on my part but I do find that there is a wider selection of shops there so it’s even nice to look. I do feel that now I’m completely settled I should definitely start venturing around a bit more and finding out what else is around.
We started off with lunch at Giraffe, although it’s a chain, this one was different to the others I’ve been to, the interiors were much nicer, I don’t know if it’s because it’s new but it just felt like there was so much space. Lunch was delicious, we had nachos and I went for a steak sandwich. We also chose some lovely alternatives to fizzy drinks, with Lucy having pomegranate iced tea and me going homemade lemonade, yum!
You’ll see below that I gave pink lemonade a go once I got home, this regular lemonade was so zingy, I’m definitely on the look out for a juicer so I can make real lemonade, so refreshing!
We rounded off last night with a screening of Rec 3 (which was not that good) and The Lorax (which was really good). My sister was all to happy to be around Doll again, even if the feeling wasn’t always mutual.
Finally, (I know I’ve been rambling on), I got this pretty sketchbook from Paperchase. I just couldn’t resist it and the paper is so thick and nice, I’ve already done a few drawings in it, I really want to keep it up as I’m a bit out of practice.
Thanks for reading, you may have noticed that I’ve made a few little changes, I’m quite happy with it though, I think it was a bit too cluttered before and now it makes a bit more sense. I even got some use out of my graphics tab – it’s had more use this month than it has ever – and used it to help draw my header, something I probably should have got on top of ages ago.
I hope you’re enjoying the sun, even if it’s a bit cloudy today. I’m off to work in a bit, which means I get to miss the Olympics opening ceremony, I don’t like sport but it would have been cool to see that, looks like it will be highlights for me tomorrow. I hope you have a great weekend!
