Today I had the best day I’ve had in a while. Enjoying yourself in the company of others sort of takes a back seat when you’re busy with exams and catching up with work you should have done earlier .
Friday my day was not so good, starting with an exam that didn’t really go according to plan, and ending with what shall henceforth be known as the Friday Fiasco. The Friday Fiasco has been on my mind since it happened, and it was nice to get away from it today .
I spent the day with my aunt, uncle, insanely cute cousin, and their cat, who doesn’t really seem to like me all that much. When I arrived we had some lunch and I helped my cousin with the gift I bought her (a wooden elephant she could paint and put together) and after lunch we went to a playground where I watched my aunt and uncle throw snowballs at each other, as well as my aunt being chased by my cousin, who would try to throw snowballs at her.
Before dinner the three grown ups sat on the couch, and my cousin sat/hung on my lap, which was really cute and really nice. We watched Mr. Bean’s holiday, which I hadn’t seen before, but now really like. My cousin and I also managed to persuade my uncle to let us watch a Winnie The Pooh movie. I found out later why he wasn’t enthusiastic at first; my cousin had seen the movie so often she could say all the lines and sing all the songs almost word perfect.
After dinner when I was on the way home I had the only down point of the day, although it was a very large down point. You see, I spent the 2 hour long train ride back to my city in a train which couldn’t have been warmer than 10 degrees Celsius! It seriously made my feet hurt and I had to buy a hot chocolate to get warm again.
That was the only damper on my day though, because other than that it was pretty awesome! Everybody needs a cute 4-year-old cousin
