Where did the weekend go

Why is it that weekends just speed past? Sure, I worked this Saturday morning, but it seemed a lot shorter than a day and a half of rest and relaxation. Probably because I didn’t really rest or relax.

We had a wedding to attend on Saturday for Mr Imperfect’s friends. He’s friends with both the bride and groom. They had a church wedding in the burbs in the arvo followed by the reception in the city in the evening. So far, I’ve only been to two weddings. Neither of those were church weddings with my friend while being religious, still opting for a short wedding with a priest and my other friend S opting for one by a celebrant in the Botanical gardens. While this wedding was long by those standards, it was still way shorter {and therefore more bearable} than Indian weddings! It was a beautiful ceremony. The reception was quite lovely too. The food was great and the speech by the groom in particular was very sweet. What surprised me was that there wasn’t a single speech by any of the women — no mums, no bridesmaid and no bride. But the groom, the best man, and fathers from both sides spoke. It frustrated me a bit but then again, each to their own. It was a very traditional wedding  carefully planned and thought out.

Not something I’m going to be doing.

On Sunday, I headed down to the Southern Highlands after making a decision mid-last week to see Tara Moss speak as part of the Sydney Writer’s Festival in Bowral. She is such an intelligent and charming woman. I’ve heard her speak before and I’m in awe. I’m so looking forward to reading her book The Fictional Woman. After her talk, I got my book signed by her and headed to have a solo coffee while editing my short stories for uni. They are due this week.

It was lovely to head down to Bowral and while I enjoyed most of my weekend, it wasn’t completely without the downs I have been experiencing. It’s good to know though that I can still plaster a smile on my face and carry on.

This time, next week, if all goes to plan, I will be up in the air on my way to San Francisco. I’m shitting myself at all that’ s left to do and am a bit anxious about the flying part {International travel does that to me}. I’m also not looking forward to leaving my kitties and Mr Imperfect for 5 whole weeks. Of course, seeing my family and one of my friends is definitely something to look forward to.

How was your weekend? Get up to anything exciting?

Do share!

    I had an OK weekend, nothing much exciting. But since I’ve been having trouble being ‘down’. It will pass, but they’re feelings I’d rather not to have to go through. That is a lovely photo of you and Mr Imperfect. I hope you have a wonderful time away, and remember, absence make the heart grow fonder!
