I never thought I'd have to fire in anger at a dratted caterpillar.

Friday has been a good day! Nic is cooking up some of his very tasty Carrot and Coriander soup, and we're heading out to the pub later on, so I'm sure it will continue to be good.

I usually work from home on a Friday, which means a nice relaxed start to the weekend. I had some phone calls to make, but apart from that I had a nice, stress-free work day. I met C and M after I packed up for the evening for some very speedy shopping and then we camped out in Starbucks to giggle and look at the very handsome Curreri-alike that works there. It was very good, frothy fun and much better lit than the Sausage had been the other night! I'm looking forward to a good, sociable weekend. As I have discussed ad nauseum this week, I am feeling very grateful to my good friends for pulling me out of my funk.

I'm hoping that this isn't too similar to my Thursday What's Hot/Not list, but I feel like counting my blessings and summing up my week. Damn, it's my blog so I'm going to do it anyway. Ner.

- I am in the Birmingham office all week, which means far too many rides on the smelly train
+ I have been sitting next to H, so the week has been full of nice chat to break up the work
- I have spent far too much time stressing about the dress I have chosen to get for C and N's wedding
+At least I definitely know it's the dress I want
+ Tuesday evening was brilliant - a free pint for Nic and a tasty glass of wine for me in The White Horse
+ Wednesday evening was unexpectedly brilliant as well - drinks in The Sausage with friends, and then pizza from Tuscano's at home.
+ Good home cooking this week - testing out recipes for tomato soup and vegetable jalfrezi. Both pretty successful, but I think the soup needed something more.
- Horrible weather making horrible office surroundings seem worse
+ It's not that long until Christmas, new year, new job, new office
+ Doctor Who: The Three Doctors was better than I remembered. I love the Brigadier so much!
+ Discovering little bottles of rose Prosecco in M&S - very tasty!

All to the positive, then. I'm off to eat some Carrot and Coriander soup!
