I’m alive (and the world shines for me today)
Truth be told, I have no idea what I have been doing to keep me away from the blog for so long (apart from getting sucked into this reading-about-Sarah-Palin-time-sink [in particular an epic metafilter thread] that has consumed the last week).
So, work – yeah, it has been quite worky.
Had my last session with my personal trainer on Thursday evening before she heads off to the UK for two years. I celebrated the occasion by buying her some rather nice truffles and the biggest [and most expensive] chocolate frog I have ever seen. She’s been quite a big part of my life for the past 2 years and it will be quite strange not to have that weekly appointment. The challenge will be to see if I can keep this up all by myself.
Don and I had planned to be All Spring Cleaning All The Time this weekend, unfortunately the weather (with torrential rain on Friday/Saturday) was distinctly un-Spring-ish, so we bunkered down, with Don cooking what is probably the last batch of chicken stock for the season and a quite spectacular osso buco.
Today we discovered that Fathers’ Day is the very best day of the year to visit the hardware store – ample parking, no queues – awesome. Plants were bought, gardening occured.
A quite lovely weekend.
