Of course it rained over the weekend, especially Monday, when it didn’t stop!

But Saturday and Sunday weren’t as bad as feared, so we had a great day at the Dunsfold Airshow. It was a tiny bit worrying after the awful crash at Shoreham but we soon got over that and had a lovely day.

Actually it’s Wheels and Wings so there are lots of cars too, but I don’t think they’re as exciting as the air display. But they were doing laps in really old cars when we first arrived so we watched those first. No idea what type of cars they were but some were really fast. And they also had a race between a plane and a car. Taxiing the car won by a mile but once the airplane was airbourne there was no contest.

We bagged a spot where we could see the whole runway, cos that’s where they do all the interesting flying, away from the crowds. Most people had brought their own chairs but we’d never been to an airshow before so Mum and Dad didn’t think to bring anything. I sat on the grass mostly – until it started raining in the afternoon, when it got far too wet.

The airshow was great. I forget the names of all the planes but I remember the Pitts because Dad used to do aerobatics when they lived in America and he always wanted a Pitts Special. Never gonna happen though!

Then there was a Spitfire that flew with a Typhoon and a really really noisy modern plane – maybe that was the Typhoon too. That was ear-splitting, so not so keen on that one. The Spitfire also flew with a Hurricane and I think a Mustang.

And the Red Arrows were fantastic. I’ve never seen them give a display before, only a fly-over. They went back and forth in all sorts of formations, belching out red, white and blue smoke. It was really good. Loved them.

Unfortunately the rain got quite heavy after the Red Arrows so we decided to leave soon after. They did warn us there would be queues to leave but there really wasn’t much option. It was too wet to sit on the grass and we didn’t even have umbrellas.

So we queued to leave. OMG it was dreadful. How can they be so efficient at getting you into the show and so terrible at getting you out? In the end Mum dodged past someone and followed some other renegades down a track we weren’t supposed to go. Haha luckily she has a 4×4 because the track ended. Just like that with a brick wall. Luckily she went off-road on the grass, through a small ditch and we’d skipped a good part of the queue and got out much faster.

Then we made another mistake and decided to head off on some back roads to bypass a huge queue on the road. We ended up on a little track and asked a lady whether it went anywhere. No, she said, you’ll have to turn back. She told us she’d probably see 50 cars up there over the weekend. So we weren’t the only “clever” ones.

Got home eventually, but it took about 3 times as long as the journey there.

So we really enjoyed the show, shame about the journey home, but if we go again next year then we’ll look for another route.

Rest of the weekend was a bit of a washout. Chilled on Monday and watched a couple of videos and caught up on Facebook but that was about all. Didn’t even bother going out, but Holly came round Monday evening to chill with me.

Usually in the holidays I don’t get up till at least 10. I mean what’s the point of not having college if you still have to get up at the crack of dawn?

But today I woke early and couldn’t get back to sleep. Not like me at all and totally annoying. Anyhow I remembered my blog and thought I might as well get on the laptop and give an update. Still in my jamas though.

Well we went window shopping which was cool, and I bought a friendship bracelet and Toni got a new top, purple and silver, totally cool. Toni has been working for a few months so she’s got more money to spend. Lucky!

In the evening we met up with some of the gang and hung out at our fav coffee bar, Maxims. It’s cool cos it has lots of really comfy chairs and they don’t seem to mind that we stay a couple of hours and only have a couple of coffees. I suppose it makes the place look full.

Jaz is the comedian in the gang, so funny he had us in stitches with his story about his grandad. A bit disrespectful maybe but definitely had us rolling around the floor. So we had a good time and I was back home by 9.30. Watched a film that was real boring but it gave me time to catch up on Facebook. Nothing earthshattering there so was in bed by 11.

Not sure what we’re doing today but I’m going round Toni’s later and we’ll decide.

By the way, not one person in the gang noticed me and Toni looked particularly radiant after our facepacks. Waste of time I guess.

My best coolest friend is Toni and me and her are having a pamper day together today. We like trying out new makeup so we’ve gone and brought some face masks and since we have the house to ourselves we’re chilling. Hope no-one comes home unexpectedly cos we look a bit of a sight.

Found some cucumber in the fridge and put slices on our eyes. Feels strange and not sure its doing any good, but we’ve seen Beyonce do it, so must be cool.

I wanted to post a picture of us both but Toni absolutely refused which is a shame. Facebook needs brightening up sometimes and we’d probably give everyone a good laugh, haha.

Now we’re made up and looking glam, just a shame we don’t have anywhere good to go. But we’ll be hanging out with the gang later so lets see if anyone notices the new improved us.

Anyway its time for lunch and mum left us ham salad and some nice crusty rolls. Then we’re gonna make a smoothie with some leftover fruit and yogurt. I guess we’ve got to clear up after otherwise mum will be on the warpath again. I don’t get why she gets so wound up cos shes got a dishwasher and its not like we make that much mess.

After lunch we might go window shopping. Shame we don’t have any money to go real shopping, but my new Saturday job starts next week so perhaps I’ll get rich and be able to buy lots of new clothes.

I’m gonna be working at Max’s Cafe, doing waitressing and stuff. Not good at clearing up as you know but if I’m getting paid it’s a bit different. Hope is not too yucky a job though. And hope I get lots of tips cos thats the whole point of waitressing I think.

Right back to lunch cos Toni is getting hungry and has finished on Facebook so I gotta do my hostess stuff and fix her something to eat.

Welcome to my new blog called Fluent For Catia.

Lots of stuff coming soon  ……………..
