Day 9- 9/1/2007
Weather- Not too bad, bit chilly now though
0000-0430 I'm online at this point and talking for aggggeeesss o people about different holiday possibilities. Have been invited to Ireland twice by two different people....within a week of each other in Mid February. Am also thinking about the Davis Cup in April! Ends up with discussions long into the morning. Anyway bedtime.....
1525- Phone has been on silent all night, and my dad comes in and tells me to stop being so lazy and shift my ass. I look at my phone and have a few txts. One if from my mate saying "Don't need a lift big guy, see you at 3.40pm" I say "OH f**k w**ker boll**ks CRAP sh*t!!" (I just remember at this point that i have a squash game in 15 minutes 12 miles away!!!) So, I tell mum i don;t need tea, run out the door with squash stuff and work stuff n tow and zoom off to St Andrews! Thankfully the Tay Bridge is shut so there is very little trafffic on the roads, meaning i arrive only 10 mins late! And as the sports centre is deserted, we stay for an extra 10 minutes anyway. YAY!
I lose 6-0 due to lack of breakfast mainly.... scorline is something like 10-8 (should have won this one), 9-4, 9-2, 9-1,9-6, 15-11. First and last games were by far the best- had an irn bru before the 5th game which helped! mmmm Girders!
1700- Me and mate, all showered and refreshed, head of to the Victoria Cafe in town, a rather nice pub we frequent! I have the all day breakfast, while he has a combo platter to himself!! (what a pie
) Anyway, this is most enjoyable and we have a little catch up of recent evens and goings on, before i head to work at 6.
1800- Arrive at work, Eve goes home, moaning about the slow day and it just continues like that. It;s ok wehn the bowlers come in for carpet bowls upstairs. Gives me something to do at least, but after watching 5 goals of the 6-3 thriller an Anfield between Arsenal and Liverpool, the night ain't so bad. No one left by 10, and i start tidying up and such like, leave at 2250, 10 minutes early. But can't really blame me. I get home to find out that the Davis Cup in April is now almost a certainty, as I now have someone to go with! Me and Amy (alc.aka.amyc) decided to meet up there, otherwise we would be on ours tods! Lots of people going now by the looks of things. Should be a good weekend, hope to see some of you there.
Arrived home and here we are.
EDIT: 0100: Just booked flights! Got one of two remaining seats on the flight down. Get in!
Going down thursday night and back sunday night after the tennis. Both flights under £50 total. WOOOOOO! Now just the ticekts.....and the hotels.......
