Tom and I had a night-in last night, and we ate a mountain of food. We bought pizza and added extra cheese, then did potato croquettes, Southern Fried chips, green beans, broccoli and cauliflower. I managed to get my veg just right this time, with no under- or over-cooking. The trick is to do the cauliflower and beans for 10 minutes and the broccoli for 8. Did you know that broccoli is actually a tree?
We watched the Breakfast Club, a very 80′s film about some kids in Saturday detention. Tres hilarious (though I was drifting off to sleep at point…don’t tell Tom, he didn’t notice!) and really good for a bit of a laugh. Tom had bought Pringles for dessert, and I had to make do with a bowl of cereal, as I’m still off cakes and crisps for Lent. We then watched a couple of episodes of Skins while playing Pinball on Tom’s laptop. He beat me a stunning 5 million to 1 mill. Poor effort on my part.
This post has no purpose other than to demonstrate I should have been working – and also that when you think you can’t afford a TV and a TV license, DVDs seem a fine alternative, until you add up the amount you spent on the DVDs and realise you could probably have bought a 100 inch flexi-paper TV for the same amount. With satellite.
The weekend holds emptiness without Tom, until tomorrow morning which will find me jetting off up north a bit to visit my friend Tracy and her baby Callum, who is now quite old (about 8 months) and I haven’t met yet. I’m looking forward to it, and I suspect it might lead to offers of babysitting for the future…Not such a bad idea if you ask me!
Also, I added a Happy Birthday video to the blog about Luisa’s birthday, which can be found here.
