This and that on a Friday

Nothing deep or profound from me today.  Val worked us super hard tonight and it sounds like the next two weeks especially will be hard as she is working on increasing our fitness and have shorter rest periods in between.  The only one of us who would quite comfortably handle the pressure I think is Paul who is already super fit and the rest of us will simply feel like we are dying each time.

We are in countdown mode around here.  Bianca is counting down the days until Sunday when it will be her birthday party.  She will have a cheerleading-themed party at her cheerleading studio.  It is a much smaller, more low-key party than the one she had last year and much less effort for me.  Feels rather strange I have to say as usually at this stage I am putting in long hours to put all my plans in place (yes, I'm a sucker for punishment) and so right now I'm wondering if there might be anything I might forget.

The other day I watched Notting Hill again.  Oh what a lovely movie!  My favourite bit is where she says "After all... I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her."

And of course this song from the movie is one of my favourites:

So how was your Friday?  Any plans for the weekend?

This weekend is quite humdrum for me. If it stays dry for long enough I will continue my roof repairs, and the lawnmower needs repairing too. If the weather improves I shall go to town and draw portraits. But The forecast is bleak.
Wish Bianca a happy birthday from me.

Busy here but will watch the Boks tomorrow. Enjoy the party - A also had a very low key party this year and it was great.

I love that film too, such a feel good film don't you think? I love the bit where he trys to climb the gate and falls down and says "Oops a daisy" and she laughs her head off at him. Makes me laugh every time. :))
Sounds like a great birthday party - I hope it all goes well!!!

Lots of fun ahead for Bianca's birthday party by the sounds of it :D)
Quiet times here at our place - a bit of gardening while the rain has stopped.
Have a great weekend Lea... your fitness levels must be so high now !
