Yay, it's warm!
I'm just back from climbing with loriel_eris
, which was awesome. She really improved over the last couple of weeks - she's got the idea of how to go about it now, and now that's it working, she's got the enthusiasm to go with it. She even did an overhang today!
I succeeded on my first 5+ route, which was also an overhang, so I'm really chuffed! My climbing's improving pretty fast as well. Of course, I know I'm going to plateau soon - that's the problem with being short!
Anyway, I am now sitting out in the garden (having trouble seeing the laptop screen, but I'm not going inside!) in the sun, wearing shorts and strappy t-shirt, exposing my poor paley-wally skin to some rays! I was looked at photos of me on my birthday (end of October) and I was so brown then! You don't realise how pale you are until the sun comes out - in grey cloudy weather everyone looks like they have a tan!
The Grand National is on today - I'm looking forward to seeing that and bawling over it (I get very emotional over horse races, especially the Grand National!).
I got paid today! Yay! Not a huge amount of money, but it's making my overdraft smaller, and I'll be getting more next week! Hurrah!
My PC video games that I ordered on Wednesday night arrived yesterday. I bought ER for about £5 inc p&p and CSI Miami for about £5 inc p&p. I was very happy to see them waiting for me yesterday!
Anyway, I'm going to snooze in the sun now, before it disappears behind a house. (That's the trouble with living in an estate - no long term sun exposure.)
