YOU GUYS I HAVE SEEN CIVIL WAR AND I HAVE SOME COMPLICATED FEELINGS ALTHOUGH THEY ARE POSITIVE ONES. Huge, massive, spoilers herein )

For those who didn't read below the cut, it was bloody awesome and I'm going to try and see it again.

Richie and I had actually booked the Friday off work to watch it, so we strolled up to the 10am showing with the 10 other hardcore geeks who were also off that day and morning people. We went for a fancy lunch up in Walthamstow village and had a very lazy Friday afternoon.

On Saturday I headed out to Henley-on-Thames with Richie, Fiona and a couple of his work colleagues for a Tough Mudder event, which is basically a really long run in the countryside with hideously difficult obstacles, including getting electrocuted, flinging yourself into ice water and flinging yourself up a vertical wall. I was very much just a spectator and my role was to spent a lot of time watching other people run through obstacles before cheering on 'my' team and then feed them cookies and Haribo. It was an entertaining day, although I was very drained by the end of it. I was also a delightful combination of deeply cold and sunburnt. Not as cold or as drained as the actual Mudders, though! Also, Richie managed to break his big toe. It was that kind of event.

Sunday was a lovely day. I had a long lie-in, if you exclude the neighbour's 2am one-woman tribute to Prince. (Seriously, I was woken up to a howled rendition of "I ONLY WANT TO SEE YOU SMILING THROUGH THE PURPLE RAIN! PURPLE RAIN PUUUUURRRPLE RAAAAAAIN!" I miss him too, lady, this isn't helping.) I got out for a run and then we went out for dinner at Senor Ceviche in Kingly Court, which I thoroughly recommend if you're into Peruvian food. And then today it was lunch with Fiona and David which is a good way to end a four day weekend, if you ask me.
