Been down at Bawcombe lots recently, had to have a break from the computer for a while as it, or more specifically, Visa crap, was doing my head in. Not that I managed to stay away completely though, still managed to nab Bill every so often for a chat. Hoorah. It was actually better too, less zoning when I was online, more conversation. Yay. I was missing that.
And talking of missing things, I phoned Pengie in New Jersey on Sunday. *Surprise!* That was fun, it was very good to hear his voice again and see how he’s doing. Although I did get a little excited and probably babbled inanely at him. Oops. Anyhow, thinking of him this week as he flys across the Atlantic.
Lynsey received her TKD uniform yesterday and was happily trying it on and strutting around Bawcombe like a true Ninja Prout. Go Lyns!
Managed to catch my hand in a linen press at the weekend and give myself a nasty burn. That was interesting watching it bubble up into a nice big blister. Eeek. On good authority from both Bill and Melly I tore up one of mum’s plants and poured its sappy gunk onto the burn, seemed to do some good. Hooray for Aloe.
Saturday night we also managed to drag Lynsey out for a Chinese!! Blimey, Lynsey going out is almost unheard of! We went for a lovely meal at the Birds Nest in Tavistock, courtesy of Senor Sprout. Very yummy indeed. Managed not to end up down the hospital this time too which is always a good thing.
Quote of the week from Senor Sprout:
-“so, you’re going to ‘merica then Chelle?
(me) – yup (blah blah)
-“I flew over America to get to Las Vegas”
Other gems of wisdom included: “Morroco, that’s in Belgium isn’t it.”
*stiffles a snigger* Sorry, Nicky, I know, I know, but I just HAD to record those pearls. I think your dad is great really! He can’t help it if he’s “Cornish.”
(ETA2)3 7 days!! Wheeee! Then I get to see my Bill for 3 whole weeks, hoorah!
Oh gosh, and crikey, I know Nicky is a touch on edge at the moment, but I never thought I’d see her punch a pregnant lady. I’m in shock! What a cow.
Shit! And I just sat on my mobile and it dialled Sy and Mel. Could hear it ringing, then Mel’s voice which sounded like an answer phone, got out of bed to figure out what was going on then realised. Feck! I’m in trouble now 🙁
