Ballet, Buskers and more

Well, as promised, I’m posting a little blurb before the weekend. I won’t lie, I don’t have much to say, but I’ll do my best to entertain for a few minutes.

So this week the Buskers were in town and I got to go a few times to watch the goods. Last Friday evening I went with Ashley and Renae and her girlies. We watched a few good acts, but we were all tired and left in the middle of one to head home. Kristen and Monica enjoyed themselves at the drumming act, getting up and dancing to the rhythm, and then almost passing out in their stroller. The next day Ashley and I went with the boys. We didn’t actually get to see a whole act, it was so hot and packed that we gave up and went to my parents place to swim. We got some Chinese take-out and it was the highlight of my life.

What else happened this week? Oh yea, last week I think it was, a water thing broke in Clayton Park and so all the dirt got in the pipe and we had dirty water for like a week. We still have soot that finds its way to the bottom of the toilet overnight. It was pretty gross the first night though. I was going to have a bath and I ran the water and immediately changed my mind. As I let the water run out the dirt stayed in the bottom of my tub, which wasn’t super fun, but yea, whatever.Josh and I had to take an unplanned trip to PEI on Sunday afternoon, so that turned into a mini adventure. We had to cross that darn bridge that I hate (I’m not particularly fond of any bridge, but one that lasts for 12 mins…I mean, that’s a little excessive!). We made good time there and back. It was a quick trip, like we got there at 6pm and drove home at 5 the next evening. A quality 23 hours on the island to meet Josh’s grandparents. I think the biggest highlight of our trip is our baby car hit 10,000 km!!! I was so excited that I wanted to take a picture, but heck, I was too late. So here it is 10,001 kms on the odometer, haha.Finally, I just wanted to thank Valerie from work for buying me the coolest keychain ever. See, her mum sells point shoes and I told her I wanted a pair and she said no cause I could hurt myself since I wasn’t properly trained, and I was all pouty and the next day she came in with this point key chain. Sooo nice of her eh? Thanks Valerie!

So that’s all I got dudes. Hope this weekend gives me some quality Kodak moments (heck yes I can say that, my camera is actually a Kodak, I just checked!). Ciao.
