A weekend with relatives

(Written on 29. 7. 2014)

It’s been a while since I’ve written anyhting here… Last weekend I was visiting my relatives in Sedlnice. We went by bus and arrived around lunch time. Of course the bus only goes to Nový Jičín so we had to take another bus to Borovec and the last part we went on foot. Mother recieved a call from one of her brothers on the way and she was chatting about a third of the way. Then we arrived and were greeted by the dog Fido. 

After that we went into the house and said “Hi” to my grandma. We chatted for a bit and then Eliška came together with a friend of hers – Natka. And of course, they wanted to play on my laptop. So I let them and was there with them and in the end we were taking turns playing Minecraft. We created an amazing underground house with a lot of stuff. It was a bit crazy but fun non the less. After that Natka went home and Eliška wanted to try Playing Mount and Blade and that’s where everything went to Hell. 

Well, not really the first day, that was kinda okay. 

So I taught her how to play it and was partly watching and partly going upstairs and checking what the rest of them were doing, which was playing cards. 

In the end Eliška went home (next door) too and I had my laptop just for myself. I was playing as well – Mount and Blade and while I was at it, I was listening to the fourth Mission Impossible movie – the Ghost Protocol. And I love that movie. Mainly because it has Jeremy Renner in it. 

And then I finally went to bed. 


The next day was not cool at all. I mean sure, I had the laptop for myself for about half an hour in the morninng before Eliška came, but then it went south. She basically kicked me out and was playing Mount and Blade almost the whole day. So I had like… nothing to do. Mainly because I didn’t know what to draw and the book I had with me was boring. I mean, yeah, it’s the last part of the Inheritance cycle, but still… It’s so boringly written… 

So I was on the balcony for a while just staring in the space and then I retreated to the room I slept in and just lay there on the bed and for several hours I did nothing but stare on the ceiling. 

It was only when evening came that I finally woke from my lethargy. And that’s because a gigantic storm came. I love storms and I just had to get a better look. I spent some time outside in the rain and then upstairs having fun because my grandmother is really afraid of thunderstorms. And without any actuall reason too! So… I mean, there’s nothing scarry about storms! It’s just Thor having a bad day!


As for the last day – monday, I woke early as well. So, in the morning I had the laptop for myself. Then, of course, Eliška kicked me out again so I had to go and find something else to do. I didn’t want to jsut stare at the ceiling again so I stole a pack of cards and made a card house. Well, card tower. 

At first, it was just the regular card house, but then it keeled over and I had to start again so I went with circular base and made my way up and ended up with a nice little tower. I just have to bring my camera next time I do something like that, because the only photo I have is taken with my crappy phone. 

Anyway, I’m adding it anyway. 


After the cardtower it was almost time to go so we went and packed our stuff and then my cousin Katka drove us to the bus station in Nový Jičín and there we waited for Student Agency bus to take us back to Brno. 

On the way I was listening to music and for the first time in a while, I took out my laptop and was reading stories. It was nice. 

And then we came to Brno and it was raining and I was really happy about that! Because I just love rain. It got pretty bad when we came. So bad I had to close the window. Not because it was cold, but because the rain was coming in and it soaked my stuff I had laying on the window sill. Not cool at all! But it’s dry now so it’s fine. Sure, some of it is a bit wrinkeled, but it’s okay, it survived! 


And what about you guys? Did you have a nice weekend? I hope you did. 

Oh, and if you did, tell me. Also, tell me if you like my card tower. And please excuse the poor quality of the photo. :)
