But yesterday afternoon and evening went some way to redeeming the week.
Let's start with taking Friday afternoon off. Completely genius plan. Gotta love Flex time! Anyway, R and I left work at 1.30, and headed to Cornucopia, a bakery that only ever seems to be open during work hours. After having lunch there, we went to the liquor store and spent exorbitant amounts of money on posh Swedish cider ($8 for a 500mL bottle! Or $75 for a case of 18 bottles...), which we then proceeded to drink sat in the sunshine in R's garden.
I'd only ever had the pear Rekorderlig (and that was on Tuesday night!), so I bought the pear one, the apple one, and this:

So after cider and ranting, and walking to the supermarket for Grainwaves Sour Cream and Onion chips and a bag of giant Cadbury chocolate buttons, we were feeling somewhat better about life.
From there, we moved on to the following:

- Therapy in the form of Richard Armitage as John Thornton in North & South (skipping episode 3 because who really cares about Bessy and the mother dying, along with that whole brother who's on the run thing??)
- More chocolate
- More Grainwaves
- Skyping our BFF and third member of the Trio of Insanity, Sara. Hurrah!! Also, we miss you!!
A housemate who goes out on her lunchbreak to buy you cold and flu tablets because you don't have time to do it yourself:
Finding out that the Australian Women's Hockey team are playing Argentina a five minute walk from your house tonight, and still being able to get tickets. Which are only $10. Score!
Here's hoping next week is an improvement on this week!!
