Guess what? While I was posting on here that I wanted to go see 'The Simpson's Movie' but nobody wanted to go with me, Mam was taking Shireen and Elizabeth to see it. She didn't offer me, because she didn't think I'd want to go. Hm... OK. I guess she forgot about our conversation on Thursday evening at Jackie's place, when Shireen said she wanted to see the movie, I said I did too, and Mam said she didn't want to go. Either that, or she assumed I just didn't want to walk the 2.5 miles from my place to hers, then the 2.5 miles from her place to the local cinema, and then walk the 5 miles back home again. In Mam's defence, I do usually avoid going to that cinema. It's only a small place, and mostly it's teenagers and little kids who go there. The people who can't drive yet, and who's parents can't be bothered to take them to the better cinema. But that's not the point! I should have been asked and given the opportunity to say "yes" or "no" for myself. Anyway, Shireen and Elizabeth enjoyed the movie, but Mam didn't. I wouldn't have minded that they went without me so much, but they all started telling me bits that happened in the movie. I have to admit, I got a bit snappy at that point and pointed out that just because they'd seen it and I hadn't, that was no reason to spoil it for me for when I do get to see it. I'd seen most of the bits they mentioned when I'd been watching the various trailers, but that's so not the point!
Today was shopping day. I didn't get much, because I figured it would be better not to do anything I didn't 'need' to do with Shireen with us. So, I just did my food shopping, and got a few bits I needed for helping Shireen make a card for her brother (he's getting married on Saturday). We did have some lunch though. Elizabeth and I had baguettes. Mine was my usual tuna, sweetcorn, cheese and onion one, and Elizabeth had just cheese and onion in hers. And, Shireen had a corned beef pasty. Then Mam decided she fancied a friut scone, and offered the rest of us a cake each too. Elizabeth didn't want one, but Shireen and I did. Shireen had a donut with chocolate icing on it, and I had a scone like Mam. I have trouble saying no to those scones. They're fruit scones with jam and cream in them, and vanilla icing on top. Absolutely delicious!
It wasn't too bad of a day (weather wise). For the most part, it was dry, and quite warm. But, it rained a bit when we were in town. It didn't rain for long though, and it was one of those sun showers where it's so warm you don't really care that it's raining, because the rain cools you down a bit.
That's basically been my day, so I'll end this for today.
