In true wintery style nothing much has
been going on. I can sum it all up pretty easily:
1) I bought a beautiful jug for $8 at the
flea market early Sunday morning, while Miz C found knitting
needles and a lovely pink sweater. It was 5°c and we had
to stop browsing often to drink hot chocolate and eat fruit
2) I worked 10 hours straight on Tuesday
only stopping for drinks and food.
3) I saw my Doctor yesterday and he told
me that all is well. The baby is as big as it should be, my
blood is good (though he did pause for a moment and pull a
little face while looking at the results before going on)
and my sugar is fine.
4) I chatted to Special-K on instant messenger
while she sat in a coffee shop somewhere in Prague. I miss
her and she's only been away a couple of weeks!
5) I met the man who does the garden. He
told me he knows nothing about gardening and then spent 15
minutes pulling up weeds, used the leaf blower to clear the
back lawn of dead camellia flowers and then left.
6) I cooked a disastrous roast chicken
on Saturday night - afraid that it might poison us, we ended
up tossing it in the garbage and ordering pizza... I guess
I should have tested out the creakingly old oven before I
got down to it.
