Convenient Personification of Reality
This weekend was all about the flashbacks, and not the acid kind. I can only describe it as fitting, really, since tomorrow I shall be 22, a step further into being a "twentysomething", which I am reliably informed is like being a grown up, only you get to kid yourself that you're still a kid.

Having said that, I do feel like I have grown up... With the exception of David's birthday, I don't believe I've been clubbing since Rimini. I know 25 year olds who still get so hammered at the weekends that they come into work on Monday completely hung over, but I can't help but feel like I've grown out of that... Having said that, perhaps I was only kidding myself that I ever grew into it in the first place. Either way, I'm quite prepared to behave like an adult, go to work 9-5 every day, spend my evenings specifically not getting rat-arsed, and generally just doing the whole 'ordinary' thing.

Tomorrow, rumour has it, the permanent positions at work are to be handed out. That would be a neat birthday present, really. A permanent job with a bank, doing something I really enjoy. And if that's not cool enough, I have £250 spending money to hit the shops with this weekend, when Eri and I go up to London...

Speaking of which, had yet another lovely weekend with Eri and my family. She said nice things of them. And they say nice things about her. It's all very good :o) After all, one day she'll be one of us, and then she'll be stuck! :o)

This morning we went to the village where my mother grew up, and where my grandparents lived when I was little... But, as is always the case when you delve into your past, things are always just a bit different. It's not disappointing, so much as.. I dunno.. disheartening. There's a distinct feeling that the past is in the past, and however wonderful it was back then, it's not going to be like that any more. I had really hoped for frost, so we could walk around the trees, all white and wintery... But that still probably wouldn't have fixed it...

Anyway, I have chocolate type foods, so I'm going to stuff my face until I am almost sick! Happy birthday to me :o)
