Jason Bourne Rocks!!! Man just got home form Bourne Ultimatum (haven’t actually seen 1 or 2 yet, but will do so pronto) and wow am still running high on adrenalin. The first 15 minutes of the film my heart was doing serious palpitations – I could feel it thumping away and hear it almost over the movie. I need to do some yoga or something to calm down. Great movie.
Day was good – uploaded some photos, did more admin, we’re getting more of a system going and David is assisting me which is an enormous help!
Now… just to exchange on our flat (not yet….. hopefully fingers toes and eyes crossed tomorrow), & get the wedding save the dates out and we’ve got a few big ticks off our ever growing list of to dos… I bought a bulletin board, a white board, and more filing trays today. I’m finding that I am losing track of things so hopefully this will make it all work a little more efficiently. Irmgard – I need you!
Meanwhile tomorrow we are hooking up with brother Gordon & Lukola for brunch (which david always seems to interpret as a normal lunch. It’s not. It’s brunch. There must be something with eggs on offer, or breakfast type dishes to count as brunch…) which will be a treat. The last time I saw Jeff was at Megan’s – I had just come back from the Dog Show (checking out pugs, pre Deuce) and had bought a bunch of toys in preparation. In fact, it was at the show that I bought Squirrelly, Deuce’s favourite chew toy. I’ve had to amputate his leg, (Squirrelly, not Deuce) and still Deuce show’s no sign of a slackening of his love for this little beast.
Anyways, this was brother Gordon last, with the darling Phia.
I think Jeffrey looks stunned from his hugging mugging (he got mugged in Soho when a man hugged him).
I ate one of them yesterday- the tiny red one. It was absolutely delicious-tomato-ey of cousre, but it also had a weird undercurrent of berry- strawberry? It was yummy, but I only had the one that was ripe.
Arianne and Jane asked about how I'm growing them- i'm not doing anything special (am amazed they are not dead- my last office plants turned into rotting onions. Bleh). They sit in my office window which is south facing so they get plenty off light. They also drink like alchies- they go through loads of water. I need to repot them (sorry Frank!! I am torturing the poor things) as they are still in their wee pots. I think once they are repotted they should be much happier. And less prone to falling over when they get dry. Oh they also have some baby bio in them for nutrients. Thinking back, the light must have lots to do with it- they weren't so happy in our flat which only gets afternoon sun.
More tomatoes- second plant. Gorgeous!
Little red pretties!! David's dad Frank gave me little shoots, and they are bearing fruit!
Can you imagine a patchwork koigu blanket?
I cannot believe how quickly time flies. Let’s see – thurs/fri were rather uneventful, david worked late, I worked late, really really happy for the weekend to have arrived. Spent Saturday sorting out inventory, and going to pick up gorgeous soft Casbah – this stuff is amazing. Arianne had said it was DaBomb! (ok not quite like that, but that it was amazing) and well, it is. I thought Smooshy was soft. This stuff – wow. Anways, so I was doing inventory and figuring out what was where. David was working again, I had saturday to myself and got lots done. The house looks less like a tornado hit it and I managed to somewhat organise my paperwork. Saturday evening was a nice night out to celebrate Barb and Melissa’s bdays – we left relatively early as Davdi had a very early morning for a bike race (5 am start!). I had been looking forward to sleeping in but twas not to be! Got up getting up at 8 and going to Battersea Park with Deuce and Max to celebrate Max’s 2nd bday. I couldn’t face doing any more work so decided to take a break and just chill on Sunday. I sort of pottered around, finally cleaned out my closet, and generally hung out with Deuce. David had a bad day – got up so early for this crazy 160k race, but ended up blowing a tire and having to bow out since he didn’t have a spare tire. Went to bed at the luxurious time of 930 pm Sunday night.
Ended up staying home today (dodgy dinner on Sunday night) and again took it easy and did some admin when I could. We had the buyers’ people come round today – two letting agents to value it and the buyer himself to meaure the walls or something for their stuff – hopefully we will be exchanging this week. Must be clenching my teeth something fierce the past few days as have awoken to very sore jaw – Saturday morning I could barely chew my breakfast. I clench and grind my teeth so I guess have been doing that a fair bit. Anyways, will be good to get this over and done with. In the future I think they should ban the house buying process totally. It should be either wiped from memory or totally automated.
Oh – the good thing about staying home today was that I was home for Koigu. Yes – she has finally arrived. Woweee!!
Poor david still at work now. Me am off to bed!
They have disabled Ravelry at work. I guess they cottoned on! Came home to this: “Your invitation was sent on Today. We just sent you a new copy of the email (from firstname.lastname@example.org) in case it was lost or eaten by a spam filter.” exepct… well, there is no email for me! waaah. Oh! Fixed – i had inactived the email address used for ravelry. Silly!!!
Anyways. Holy moly pecan pie. That thing is amazing. It is like stumbling into a cave with a pretty lagoon just chocka with sparkling pirate booty…. or knitting swag!
