The last night in a typical weekend

Sunday night and am in at about 9pm, after spending the day out with Steve & Paula, shopping then having tea at their place. We went to Costco, where they have Skippy peanut butter and Oreo cookies, or Oreo biscuits, as they call them here. Mmmmm, Oreos. I’m absolutely stuffed! Starting week 4 of big school tomorrow; much enjoyed my 3 day weekend (Friday class was moved to Thursday last week). The White Rose Shopping centre was much like an American mall; we even had Subway in the food court for lunch. It was so lovely to have a soda with ice in it, as most places don’t serve ice in soft drinks. My big purchase of the day was white knee socks for my catholic schoolgirl Halloween costume, for £2.99. A few classmates are planning a dress up night out on the town the weekend before All Hallow’s Eve, which should be fun. Halloween isn’t as much celebrated here as it is in the States, although it is becoming more Americanized, which is a bit odd as it began as a pagan holiday here.

Random useless facts:
  • Pepperidge Farm Godlfish are called Finz here and come in salt & vinegar flavor.
  • The letter Z is only referred to as “zee” in the US; everywhere else it is called “zed”.
