Ok – stop press. 5:48pm and it’s not pitch black.
This is big.
And what a difference it makes to everyone’s moods! 1 million points go to the sun and its Vitamin D-filled rays. It wins the game (of life?) forever.
We’re thankful for:
3) Novel: page 69, baby!
4) A fantastic country adventure in Berkshire with Mary-Berry…in which the Philosopher practice his acrobatics. Intrigued? More to come! And doesn’t it look like Mary has a sheath of arrows on her back?!5) A succession of very fine meals made by other people recently…this is the first night I’ve cooked in five! Thanks to the Philosopher for a Valentines-themed feast.
7) Realizing today the stellar line-up we’ve got for this year: March – Violinist/Chocoholic; April – one very special JCV (The Artiste); May – The Lactation Guru + her folks!!; June – Cape Cod; July – Belfast wedding…and I could go on. It’s good to have things to look forward to in life.
8) A successful spousal meeting-cum-Sunday Roast which was both hilarious and delicious. I think the two boys in charge were both, possibly, on their first day AND the owners. The pub’s undergone some change of management recently. They spent the hour we were there pouring Coke into a fishbowl from the coca-cola tap trying to get the syrup to taste “right” as they had “just loaded a new batch of syrup”. I’m pretty sure they just about drained a whole batch of syrup waiting for it to taste right. The Philosopher was deeply grieved by the waste of Coke!
10) Your turn! Give me something good to celebrate.
