How was your day dear?: November 2016 Archives

Cough

Wednesday night I started coughing.  Spent the next few days feeling like crap.  And the next few days coughing non-stop.  Fun times.  Not.

Saturday we fed about seventy people at the club.  The sweetie had to do most of the food preparation though, because I didn't want to spread germs.

Dave and Kat came up for the weekend too which was nice, other than feeling like crap of course.

My back hurts, I think from all the coughing :(

Beans

I'm sitting here eating the very last of damned white beans from over a year ago.  Finally!  Have been trying to clear some freezer space for a club event.

Yesterday we went out to the club to do some preparation for said club event.  As well as that we had a bit of a swim, and generally had a relaxing afternoon.

Friday night I finally got around to watching It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World which I'd borrowed off David ages ago.  I remember watching it maybe thirty years ago, but all I remember from watching it the first time was them looking for the treasure under the big W.  It was a very silly movie.

The last two Saturday nights we've had nothing planned (or unplanned) which as been bliss.  We've watched the first two Karate Kid movies.  I've been enjoying them.

Durham

Stu's high school friend Tom came to town this week, so we went along last night with him and Damien to the Durham in Kingston.  It was trivia night so the place was packed, and we had fun playing along with the first two rounds of trivia, even though we weren't officially participating (the table next to us might have overheard some of our answers ;) ).  The food service was pretty awful though.  They got our order wrong to start with.  And didn't bring us any sort of cutlery or napkins (they had been for other tables).  Had to go to the bar and try and get some stuff, although didn't end up with any forks so ended up eating salad with our fingers.  And the ribs we had were overcooked to the point of being a bit burnt.  Quite disappointed.  But other than that had a good catchup, and a lovely pleasant night to be sitting outside.

Visitors

Wednesday night we had Zac come and stay with us because Chrissie had to go to Sydney for a conference.  We watched Aladdin, which he'd never seen! *gasp* !!

Thursday night we had Ben over for dinner.  Had evil cheese and bacon chicken roast and watched documentaries on Lego and Boeing's Everett "megafactory".

Friday night we did the visiting.  I'd had a crappy day so really didn't feel like socialising, but Kit and Serena had had even crappier days so we all tried to help each other feel better.

Also I'm getting really tired of insomnia (get it, arf arf).  Twice this week I've gone to bed at reasonable time, but then woken up in the middle of the night for hours.  Partly temperature (too hot with the doona on, too cold with it off), partly my brain not shutting up, but mostly just my spine never feeling comfortable :/
