Ah Monday again… why must you visit so soon?

I had a nice and varied weekend. Technically, Thursday isn’t part of said weekend but I will post about it anyways for the sake of the fact that I’m ALIVE and didn’t run over any Killers’ fans on my first driving lesson in donkies.

In fact, I wasn’t brave enought to go anywhere near a main road being that my estate is beside Marlay Park and with The Killers concert going on that night, I decided to drive around the estate instead and avoid parked cars and future customers (what my new instructor likes to call children). I was pretty wobbly on the clutch but could remember a fair bit from my lessons in 2006. However, even though I thought I was going a literally a snail’s pace, my instructor thought otherwise and consistently reminded me to press ‘the middle pedal that everybody hates’. All. the. time. He is a seriously nice guy though, and his attention to detail, whilst rather unnerving at first, is probably ultimately for the best.

Then on Saturday, I went to Lovebox. Of course, it rained ALL MORNING LONG so by the time I and some friends ventured up to the park, the ground was completely destroyed. We danced around like eejits to NERD for a bit until I fell in the mud and had to resist the tempetation to roll around. I don’t know how, but I managed to only dirty my knees and the elbow of my left jacket sleeve which was handy. Then I forgot I was wearing wellies when I got home through and trekked a muddy trail all the way up to my room, much to my mother’s delight. Man, I need to move out.

Sunday’s plan was to visit Dun Laoghaire for the Festival of World Cultures but unfortunately, a rather annoying self inflicted illness got in the way and instead I gorged on trash TV and movies. Watched Kramer vs Kramer for the first time in ages and fell even more in love with Meryl Streep. She really needs more Oscars.

My next driving lesson in tomorrow when I shall be braving the big bad main roads and this time avoiding moving cars and past customers. Eeeeeeek!
