So ridiculously, [livejournal.com profile] silly_cleo and I now have six tickets between us to the Adam concert. I have the two PURE ones (which are unrestricted, so I guess that's better) and then we have two each that we won in the competition. I would say we're just really lucky, but having talked to some of the other people I met on the stalking Adam day I think a lot of people won - there were 400 winners and you had to pre-order the CD to enter, plus he is virtually unknown over here. So. I'm not worried about the tickets though, I know enough casual fans to ask some people and thus properly convert them. :)

BUT. It may not happen anyway if he doesn't even make it to the UK at all because of the STUPID ASHCLOUD. Seriously, it is messing with life in general. I know SO MANY PEOPLE who are stuck on one side of the problem or the other - can't get home or can't leave to go on holiday - and it totally sucks. We've had flights grounded for almost a week now, it's time for the ash to leave! Hey, at least it's good for the environment, I guess? As Amy pointed out last night, the UK should make it's emission targets this year for sure...

I had a strangely domestic feeling weekend. I was still kind of getting over being sick, So I had planned to take it easy, but I felt pretty decent when I got up Sat. [livejournal.com profile] lazyclaire, [livejournal.com profile] silly_cleo, and Abbi and I went over to Ben's house to bake cupcakes with his little girls. We had joked about having a baking day for ages, so it was fun for it to actually happen. And his little girls are super cute and fun, plus we FINALLY got to meet his lovely wife. She's not Nano, so she's never come to any of the events or anything. Claire and I ended up staying the longest, as after we put the kids to bed we decided to get dinner (fish & chips!) and then watched the new Who (mostly meh, although iDaleks! yay) on iplayer. It was almost midnight when we finished, so Ben kindly ran us home quickly in his car (such luxury!) so we didn't have to brave over an hour of public transport. All told, it was a really fun day.

Sunday I had to meet with some clients that I had canceled a meeting on from when I was sick. They are actually friends of friends of my parents, so everything I meet with them I end up socializing for ages. I went over there for 2PM and stayed for HOURS. We did the tax stuff in an hour or so (I had it mostly done but needed to revise for UK return taxes) and then just hung out. IDEK, we had cake and champagne (there were explanations, but it's not worth it here) in the garden b/c the day was so lovely, we looked at a photo album, we talked to an old friend (knew me as a kid) who just happened to call, etc etc. It was kind of ridiculous actually - I ended up staying for dinner and left around 9PM! Also I got invited to be a part of a bridge group that contains: 72 yr old man (the husband), 68 yr old man & 73 yr old woman (his friends) b/c they need a 4th and I play bridge. And I must admit I am tempted. THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVE TO PLAY CARDS PEOPLE! Anyone in London interested in starting a card circle (anything but poker)? Or a bridge group? I would totally teach you all. :) We could make it cool again with the under-60s set!

So yeah. That was my weekend. In conclusion, I say: GO AWAY ASH CLOUD, WE DON'T WANT YOU ANYMORE.
