Sunday the 23rd of November 2014
Yesterday was the first weekend in a while that we were able to relax, nowhere to go, no one to see and nothing of any significance to do. I woke up early, blew up balloons, decorated a cake and made sure everything was perfect. It was. I bought him an electric toothbrush, Andy Warhol Perrier water, a box of Raffaello and some other things. I took a photograph as I felt quite proud of the way everything looked on the table. I wrote a lot of Polish in his card. He laughed as I think a lot of it might have seemed a little silly, I didn’t mind though.
We spent the rest of the day watching films, Back to The Future Part II and III, Looper and half of the first episode of the series Peaky Blinders. We fell asleep by 11PM and woke up relatively early this morning. We watched X Factor UK, skipping through the acts we found boring. He’s gone out now. I have finished planning lessons for Monday (my usual Sunday) and I need to start working on my research for Google Squared. I have to make a two minute introductory video and I’m desperately jotting down ideas. I’ve also been attempting to grasp the history of the internet in order to fully embrace my current role as a digital marketing and business student… ‘The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was one of the world’s first operational packet switching networks, the first network to implement TCP/IP, and one of the progenitors of what was to become the global Internet.’ It’s interesting how most of the new and exciting technology starts with the military.

I was surprised by those two dates so I thought I’d share them with anyone who happens to come across this blog. It’s so hard for me to write a blog post nowadays, I feel so out of practice, so busy with other things. I’m glad I’ve written this. I need to write more.
