Back in the U…K.

Oh, what a weekend. I spent most of Saturday not feeling well, but had a brilliant night out with Simon’s oldest friends Saturday night. It’s amazing how good conversation and laughter can make an absolutely disgusting curry taste better. (Seriously…that was the WORST chicken korma I’ve ever had, but I digress…) Cheers all around to Ben, Poom, Wesley and Suzanne for a marvelous time. Egg McMuffins all around!
Sunday we CLEANED the house in preparation for a visit from Simon’s parents, which was just lovely even if all we had for a meal was pizza. I guess there is enough of my mother in me to want to be a proper hostess, even in a “dine in kitchen” that is only about 8’x8′ all together. I’m going to miss being able to ask Simon to reach into the fridge and get more to drink, or grab another fork from the drawer without him having to get up from the table. Cheers to him, by the way, for doing the dirty work (I DON’T do bathrooms) while I mopped the kitchen.
Now it’s Monday, and despite my best efforts there is nothing wrong enough with me that I can ring in sick. At least it’s not snowing…yet. They’re saying we’re getting more of the white stuff on Thursday and I’m so not looking forward to that. Cheers, Nature, for giving me a break in the weather today and Wednesday, at least!
