Last week was definitely blast from the past week for me! Some more distant past than others but in total I think I got to speak to about 10 people I don’t generally speak to that often anymore – and almost all of that good news or just friendly chit-chat.
I won’t lie, it was really lovely. I should totally make the effort to stay connected to more of these people, some of them I really miss!
Anyhoo, not much potting on my end – but here are the highlights anyway:
- My ear looks like it’s healing up nicely…in no small part thanks to my dad who came out to change my dressing every single day last week – what a star! Thanks Dad.
- I ordered something for Nicola’s birthday off Amazon.com and it arrived this morning! I will probably need to leave it locked up at the office till December to avoid tempting myself into giving it to her sooner. How’s everyone’s Christmas shopping coming along, or shouldn’t I ask? Mine is coming along shockingly – I have only ideas so far…
- We swam every day this weekend and it was fantastic! My folks have a cover on their pool so it heats up a fair bit quicker than an open pool and keeps its heat longer too. We had 28’C water already – just perfect. (My mom won’t get in till the water is 30’C, but at this rate it can’t be far off).
- Nicola is very missing dad-person fixated at the moment. She talks about him almost constantly. *sigh* She’s made up such fantastic stories about where he might be, that even if I was tempted to try and organise a meeting for them, I doubt she would recognise him. (it usually alternates between variations of the following: he’s been taken by the police…he’s part of the police…he lives on a farm…he’s a king in a far off country…also there’s one book of farm words on her shelf with a picture of a boy holding a pumpkin, Nicola is 100% convinced that this random child is her brother, so whenever anyone talks about brothers she is always quick to point out that she believes her brother eats a lot of pumpkin!). I’m not too sure what i’m going to do about this yet.
How was your weekend?
These photos were taken a while back – Nicola just loves dressing rooms. If I looked this cute, then I probably would too. 😉
