So, Sunday

It’s with us again, Sunday, shortest day of the week. We do plan shortly to get some lunch, and perhaps a small beer or two. After that we’ll come back here so that Louise can lie in bed and play Minecraft until it’s time for her to sleep. (more…)

So tired.

Last night, I made chilli. I used a packet mix (mostly) rather than my own recipe, and so didn’t think it would be particularly hot. However, having dived eagerly into it while I was carrying my plate, Louise informed me with a yelp that yes, it was indeed hot. At least hotter than expected.

Turned out that it was very hot. Enough to give me the itches all over in fact, which lead to scratching and indigestion and all those things. It led to a fairly sleepless night and this morning, a combination of both a painful belly (from the scratching) and tiredness. I took a photo of the belly scratches, but it doesn’t make pretty viewing so I’m not putting it here.

All this meant for a slow and uncomfortable day so far, involving more wine than I’d planned. Not completely unproductive I guess, but worse than usual. I’m planning to be out for drinks tonight too…


It’s very windy outside today, at least from all the way up here it is, which has probably something to do with the Olympics and Mr Putin’s status as an impromptu gay icon. At least, that’s what I get from the still-running-after-a-month #ukipweather hash tag on twitter. But I digress, it’s windy and the wind is loud up here on the 19th floor, and the rain is ratting against the windows. I had coffee but it’s gone.
