apart from my invention of a swear word, it has been a long day. went to opticians for an eye test : they should have some contact lenses for me to try next week. i am rather nervous about this, especially considering how i was when they needed to put eyedrops in my eye to check my eyeball curvature. but we'll see.
after this met up with vjbseven. after a brief shopping expedition, we hung around at my flat, watched stuff on dvds and computer. and i cooked scones! zub (my brother) arrived one or possibly two minutes after 4pm but oh well. the scones were very nice and only one of them came out even slightly mutant. i shall do this for real at some point: thanks to people for beta-testing my baking. i shall try cakes next.
very tired now. tomorrow I am going to manchester for the weekend. saintmaryuk and folks : if you want to meet up give me a text or something. :) [ do i know anyone else in manchester? ]
