Friday, February 6

Friday – Huzzah!!!

I love a Friday. It means the weekend is here (in case you didn’t realise). Also, Friday night is ‘murder night’ on the ABC – usually it’s one of the many British police/detective/murder mystery series. Tonight it’s ‘Trial and Retribution’. To be honest I’m a bit ‘meh’ about ‘Trial and Retribution’ but beggars can’t be choosers. I much prefer Midsomer, or Miss Marple or Poirot.


I feed the children early and we get them off to bed and Tom and I settle in front of the TV with a glass of wine and some dinner (plates on laps - peasant behaviour I know). I’m making Korma tonight with pappadums. Tom tolerates my ‘British Murder Night’ – I don’t think it’s really his ‘thing’ but he humours me and never complains.

This weekend Hannah is away overnight on Saturday and Tom has something to attend so it’s just Aislin and I at home. We’ll watch a movie and eat popcorn I think – well she will, I’m not keen on popcorn. I really hope she doesn’t make me watch Dora the Explorer.

I don’t have much else to report today. It’s hot…but you knew that didn’t you? ‘They’ are telling us a cool change will come through around midday tomorrow. I hope so because today I almost killed someone who stole my parking spot and then I nearly punched an old man who pushed in front of me in a shop. Lucky I wasn’t armed.

sounds like a relaxing night and weekend ahead...don't know how we'll survive the weather! we have an outdoor 21st on saturday night as well!

A bit like one long holiday then Dave? I suppose you just get lost in your quilting and the days just slip past.

The only remedy to this weather Cathy is to stay inside with the air conditioner on. Hopefully the outdoor party won't be too uncomfortable for you - is there a pool?

a lot of people have asked if there's a pool - I believe there is, but I think it's a HUGE party (on a farm) so I doubt we will all fit in it :)

Just read your 100 Things About Me and Why Bridget's Flame...totally entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable! We are very different and yet have enough in common to keep me coming back day after day for an entertaining read :)

I'm in hysterics picturing 100s of people standing elbow to elbow in the pool.

I'm glad you keep coming back - despite the differences :-). Mao Tse-Tung said “The differences between friends cannot but reinforce their friendship”. So true.

Actually I'm sewing a cushion by hand at the moment. Quilting will be next winter, I suspect.
