Late nights

*yawn*

I have been so tired lately! I put it down to too many late nights in a row.

Last Saturday I didn't get to bed till the wee hours of the morning (see previous post for details), then on Sunday night we went out for Kat's birthday to a Belgium pub in the city. Originally Kat was supposed to go and see a band play in Freo but she couldn't get tickets so opted for a few quiet drinks instead. It was a good night though but some of the beers looked rather potent. A couple of the guys tried one of them that was 11.5% but I wasn't game (apart from the fact that I don't like beer). I chose not to drink as I thought I'd already had enough that weekend.

On Monday I went out again with Kat, this time for a family birthday dinner at The Cinnamon Club in Leederville, her favourite Indian restaurant. It was a really good night and I had heaps of fun, plus I actually got to give Kat her pressie, an Orchid that was too big to cart along to the pub.

Then last night Mike had organised a paintballing night so I went along to watch.

I don't paintball.

I don't find getting injured fun. Within the first round Christian had split his knuckle open from a hand hit and by the end of the night was bleeding from about four places and had numerous welts, Mel had a shocker of a bruise already forming on her arm and everyone else was showing similar injuries. I welt enough as it is, I don't need to go looking for trouble!

There was an observation deck upstairs so I spent most of the night up there watching and about half way through Kat came to find me as she'd run out of ammo and couldn't be bothered playing anymore. The observation deck (well, really it was a function room with big windows overlooking the game area) was in darkness and there wasn't really any great lighting on the stairs so it was nice to have company up there as it was a bit creepy.

The best part about the whole complex was the big signs on almost every door that read 'No Escape'. Obviously they were complying with fire safety regulations but it was rather funny especially the ones of the door to the loos. Kat and I couldn't resist getting a photo of the one of the gents.



The boys have a bye this week with soccer so tonight I'm planning on having an early night. I went to the gym for a bit longer than I normally do and I've walked the dogs and then I'm not planning on doing much else after I've made dinner. Maybe I'll watch a bit of Eddie Izzard...

Oh, and speaking of the gym and whatnot, I've been going really well with the diet and exercise thing. I've lost almost 10kgs now and I think it's starting to be noticeable. At least I'm not looking at photos and going 'Ewww, they'll never see the light of day!'.
So, I'm very proud of myself!

That's about it for now guys. I'll post again when something vaguely exciting happens!

I think you were wise to avoid the paintball, love!

Barb was asking my about the night while we were chatting on msn and she aptly asked 'How was pain ball last night?'

I always thought that paintball would be fun, but I'm not so sure now...

I was wondering if you'd lost a bit of weight. You look fabulous in the photo on the travelling gnome blog. :)

*blushes*

Thanks guys!

Tah said...

Sounds like a fun week overall. Lack of sleep is a simple price to pay for it. ;-)

Congrats on the weight loss!

I thought you looked great before, Nettie, so you must really look smashing now! Hurrah!

And I don't play paintball, due to the other players objecting to little things like my using the gun as a club at close-quarters or otherwise complaining that I don't fight "fair". . .
