random firework pictures from weheartit • me and Sally dancing the Tanzania Dance
On Friday me and my homies went to watch fireworks at the local park for the third year in a row, so it's become a bit of a tradition now. The fireworks were pleasant enough but my lord it was freezing! I had walked at least two miles prior to standing in my flats on a cold, wet field. I would've worn my wellies but I was going to a party with my friend Hannah afterwards so I didn't want to look like a complete tramp...We warmed up inside for a bit after the spectacle, listened to some live music and watched enviously as some of my friends ate their Chinese food. Damn, that was a good idea.
After wandering around the village in the hope that it would pass some time so that everyone would be good and drunk before we arrived, me and Hannah headed to the party, in all our frizzy hair, casual clothing and fire-smelling selves. It was so funny at how terrified we were; the birthday boy was in the year above so we only knew a small handful of the people going. We crept up to the door but were greeted (thankfully) by some familiar faces. Most of the Tanzania crew was there too so we had a little reunion, with Sally and I resurrecting the Tanzania Dance.
Oh, and to top off the weekend, Benson from Tanzania said "missing you a lot dada" (dada meaning sister) to me on Facebook today. Yeah, be jealous. Anyway, to try and give this post a little bit of a purpose I just want to say that this is my favourite time of year. It's the perfect time to go running too, I went last night and was entertained by the fireworks exploding left, right and centre as well as a bit of drum and bass in the form of Camo and Krooked. Autumn/Winter is so pretty. But that's only if you wrap up warm and don't catch a cold folks.
