Week 131: Salicylic Acid
The big thing this week was Euan’s leaving drinks – he’s going to the Philippines for a year and the 40+ people who turned up are definitely gonna miss him. We started in The Old Thameside, a staple of the old FT board games group, and ended in St Christopher’s with a record number of people tagging along. It was a lot of fun!
I preemptively booked the Friday off work. Well done me 👏
On Saturday Charlotte and I went to see Sophie Duker at Leicester Square Theatre. We kinda fell in love with her on Taskmaster and her standup is so great too, the tour’s been extended.
Over the long weekend, we hired a car and visited Charlotte’s grandparents, an old school friend, and her mum. The weather was lovely and everything felt very summery.
I’m kind of dreading how little downtime I have over the next couple of weeks. We’re heading to Eurovision in Liverpool which will be amazing. We also have a bunch of other plans with friends, and it feels ungrateful that all I can think is “When am I going to get time to decompress?”.
It’s not a fun state of mind to be in when you feel a little bit of resentment towards every plan in your calendar 😬 In probably-related news, my psoriasis is flaring again. brb just slathering myself in salicylic acid.
