Fuck yeah weekend.
Well I'M off to Wales for a meet up with my old university gang, who are DELIGHTFUL, but relatively sedate nowadays what with kids and what have you, which is actually a SWEET RELIEF after quite a few weeks of caning it.
I'm planning a decent chill out weekend. Been quite active lately and I'm feeling it a smidge. Plus, next weekend is already full-up given that I'm working on the Sunday and have Kiss on the Saturday \m/
What's all this foreign talk in the title?
I'm tempted to get absolutely CUNTED on Saturday. Mates birthday and 1st anniversary of his bar opening.
I'm hoping we have a relatively visitor free weekend. As nice as it is that people come see the baby, you're constantly on guard and can't relax. Sometimes feeding can take an hour, but you can't do that when you know there are guests downstairs waiting for you
Are you going to teach BABYKYLIE another language from birth?
Just you wait til I come up for a ROYAL VISIT!
My friends who are hosting this weekend's shenanigans have just emailed to say they don't have any booze in the house but have an order turning up at 9 tonight, so we're alright.
I'm arriving at 5.
That'll be a litre of gin, four bottles of wine and a decent scotch as a "present" on arrival then...
All the grandparents talk to him in gujarati which is quite nice because he'll understand it at least when he's older. I feel that will die with my generation because although I understand, I don't really speak it well.
Yes but I can just whip out my boob infront of you. I can't really do that infront of old aunties and uncles.
I got twatted last night after my penultimate exam. Just one to go and then Uni is over. Having a well deserved day off today.
Apparently having one parent speak in one language and the other in another is the way forward. A friend is English and a French teacher but her 6 year old speaks fluent French now as she's spoken to him only in French since he was born....
Oh I've got no problem with a bit of TITTY, love!
I must pay a visit soon. I need to buy BABYKYLIESTAR a present
I imagine Baby Kylie will grow up like us, my parents speak to us in Gujarati mainly but we speak back in English. It's just naturally the way it's gone. I can't read or write it. I only really spoke Gujarati to Granny Star (RIP), most of the family understand English otherwise. But I deffo want him to understand it at least.
And yes, we look forward to a visit
Y'know, whatever the language is, it's another string to his bow at the end of the day. I always was massively jealous of those on my degree course with a parent who was French/German/etc.- the advantage they had was huge.
It's a well known fact that bilingual childern are more intelligent.
Me too, especially since mr RS is out of town.
LIBERAL EU MAFIA
Being exposed to multiple languages from birth forms different neural pathways in the brain. Deffos encourage it. I've got a mate whos mum used to sit her down with a Chinese woman as a baby and just pay for her to be spoken to in Chinese. She has a natural propensity for picking up languages as an adult.
Ron Jr started speaking Italian at the dinner table last night (one of his school matesItalian italian Mum) - mind blowing, even though I speak Spanish with him.
I think I'm still drunk. I got sucked into my housemate's whiskey drinking and got to bed around 3:30am.
Thats the best thing about late night whiskey.
Home measured whiskey as well, where you end up doing a quadruple thinking it's "roughly a single" and then wonder why you're still fucked the next day...
I'm mining a rich vein of charity shops today.
Hoorah for dying homosexuals
OOOH have a VADA at 'ER
I'm driving to Wales today. I could theoretically stop off in Bristol for a quick MINCE round the charity shops.
How bona to vada your dolly old eek!
I'm on St Michael's Hill at the moment. It's all gone rather CHICHI, and I can't decide if that's good or bad.
I dunno. He was pouring/topping them up.
I didn't even drunk-text. What a waste of drinking!
I was thinking of stopping in Bristol for lunch on my way through.
Nothing like a DEAD GAY to perk you up though. There was the day in the Southsea Sue Ryder I bought 35 items of music in one sitting cause someone had literally thrown out their entire collection of Hi-NRG classics
When you come up with a bit more time, you must visit the charity shops on Cotham Hill (just opposite Whiteladies shopping centre). The Clic Sargent music shop in particular is often amazing. They clearly have people there who research what things are worth, but as we all know, often the complete shit is the best finds.
I know Cotham Hill well.
Are Bristol charity shops open on a Sunday? It's the biggest bugbear of mine that they never seem to bother- Sunday is PERFECT charity shopping time for me...
I'm there right this minute. Mr L is currently fingering a 12" of We Kill The World (Don't Kill The World) for 75p
They aren't usually open Sundays, I don't think. I can only assume it's lack of volunteers.
OH MY GOD WHY DOESN'T THIS HAPPEN TO ME?
Right, I'm off. I think I shall be making a Bristol lunch stop after this conversation.
now do I splash out a quid on 'Some More Of Me Poems And Songs' by Pam Ayres or not?
I think it's FALSE ECONOMY not to.
