Friday was my third day of work, and of course the last day of the week. I went into work hoping that Oliver, my boss, wouldn't be there as he wasn't Thursday morning. No such luck. Well at least even though he was there one of the other interns came in for half a day so I wasn't the only other one there. In the morning I started doing the research of companies and seeing what type of private equity they invest in, I was on a roll. Then it was almost time for Oliver to leave for a meeting and the intern asked me what I was doing this weekend and we started talking a little bit and of course Oliver said we have work to do. Heaven forbid we use our vocal cords. Oliver left and we of course talked, and Rebecca joined in as well and we just talked for a little bit. The other intern left and then it was time for me to get lunch. I walked back to my flat (in the rain), and had forgot my key to the front door so I had to have someone let me in. I felt like an idiot. My lunch consisted of a ham and cheese sandwich and cranberry juice of course. An hour goes by so fast when it is lunch time which is unfortunate because at work an hour drags on forever! Anyways, it was time for me to return, and to my surprise Oliver wasn't there yet! I had a little bit of time before he returned from his lunch break, and once he did it was silent again. Only for about 2 and a half hours though because well he had another meeting to go to! Rebecca and I left at about 5 rather than 5:30 which was lovely.

I came back to my flat and Amy and I decided that we would cook dinner with the other girls from another flat. Caitlin came and the three of us went to the grocery store, Sainsbury's. If you go with the Sainsbury's basics brand, it is amazingly inexpensive! LOVE IT! We decided to cook chicken Alfredo, garlic bread, and a salad. (note: just because some pasta is 17 pence a bag, you don't need three bags, let alone trying to cook all of them for four people). No italian meal is complete without some wine though, so we had that too. Once we ate and had our meal we wanted to watch a movie. There were a limited number of DVD choices for us to choose from, and we found a Mary-Kate and Ashley box set! We felt that it would only be appropriate to watch Winning London. It was sort of a disappointment to us because it wasn't as great as when we were 8 years old. It was a lovely night of just hanging out! Kat and Caitlin ended up staying for a slumber party because by the time the movie was done it was later than 12:30 and the tube was closed. Granted they could have figured out how to take the bus home, but let me just say that is difficult at night as you have probably already read in my other blog post.
Saturday morning came around and we woke up about 9:45. We were going to go to Buckingham Palace again to watch the Queen's parade but we didn't really want to deal with the crowd. We got ready, and then continued on to Caitlin and Kat's flat where they got changed and ready for the day. We were going to take the bus because it is much cheaper than the tube, especially on the weekend. Well, that ended up being an epic fail because I ended up being the last of the four of us to get on the bus and my card didn't work, it said I didn't have enough money on the dumb thing. So Caitlin and I got off the bus for me to fill up my card and we just decided to take the tube because it was much easier. I must say that Amy's face when she saw us on the sidewalk waving to them on the top floor of the bus was priceless. It wasn't just a confused look, it was more of an "Oh my goodness!!!" look. We ended up making it to their flat, and I needed some coffee because this instant coffee just isn't cutting it. Conveniently there was a Starbucks right off the tube station, I loved that cup of coffee more than any other I have ever had.

Well today, I haven't done much so far. I slept in until about noon. I started my laundry, and now I am about done with my post. Today I really just expect to read, maybe watch a movie, and read some more. Should be a great day!
