Busy weekend

This weekend has been quite interesting and exciting in its own way. On Saturday, after chilling at home in the morning, I went to one of my dad’s cousins house, because it was that cousin’s nieces mehndi party and her wedding was taking place on Sunday. That party was quite different as usually they have the party at a hall or restaurant, but this particular family did the pary at home. So it was for very close family. I suppose it was quite cosy. The one thing I would say is that there were a lot of kids, so it was pretty noisy.
On Sunday, we went to an engagement in Luton. We were from the groom’s side. The groom was my mum’s cousin. My aunt (mum’s sister) and her family also attended this party so it was good fun. My other aunt (mum’s cousin sister) also attending the party with her two little daughters. I suppose if you go to a wedding of a close relative then you would have a more enjoyable time compared to attending the wedding of someone you don’t know, or who isn’t so close to you in terms of family. My cousins and i sat together, and then all our parents at on a separate table. It was quite fun as we were just playing jokes and poking fun at each other. The good thing was that there were lots of us at the party so it was good to mix with different people.

Wedding plans and a surprise dinner invitation

I’m really looking forward to attending a wedding ceremony tomorrow taking place in Brighton. It’s going to be even more exciting as my aunt (mum’s sister), uncle and cousins have arrived from the US and are staying over at my house for the duration of their vacation. Also just I left this morning to come into work, my mum told me to come home quickly tonight, so i naturally asked her why. She said that we have a dinner invite for 9pm at one of my aunt’s house (her cousins’ house). She said that it will be fine as long as I get home around 7pm tonight.
I just hope that we come home from the dinner early enough so i can get a good night’s sleep before tomorrow.  Even though it’s going to be a long journey, i think we will still have lots of fun and time will fly by and before we know it, we will arrive at the venue. I know this because, yesterday, while my mum and I were working yesterday and so my aunt and her family went to Paddington to visit their other relatives (my uncle’s sister) and then they came back later that evening. So seeing as my mum and I haven’t seen them for 2 days, even though they are all staying at my house, catching up with them tonight after work and during the dinner party should be really fun.
Onto other news, my brother has completed his exams a few weeks ago and all he’s interested in doing now is watching TV and playing on his PS3. It seems like a boring life to me, just sitting around at home and watching TV all day, but there you go. My elder brother and i have encouraged him to go out with his friends and play in the park or go to the cinema and chill out, but he refuses to go.  I do find this a bit strange, as whilst he was revising for his GCSE’s,  all he could ever talk about was linking up with his mates and now when his exams are over and he’s got lots of free time, he doesn’t leave the house.
