Which means I get Bill at home with me all weekend..hoorah!
When I wake up on such days with a snoozing Bill next to me I think to myself I shouldn’t get up in case I disturb him. He doesn’t sleep much and is generally up and about until around 2am most nights and then awake again for work mere hours later. So, on non work days I try not to wake him when he is actually sleeping. However, everytime this happens, the next time I open my eyes I find I’m hugging on Gingernuts, and not my hubby, who will invariably be back online in the office!! Gah! How does he do it?!
Still no Ed so I’m very lonesome, and have snuck onto Bill’s work laptop to write this. This laptop makes me feel dirty though because the keyboard is sticky and crunchy in places, while the screen is a little iffy now. I want my Ed back!! And not least because having to play World of Warcraft at separate times from Bill is horrible.
Last night we were going to have a Bill and Kay night, watch a film and snuggle up with some wine and popcorn. However, Bill’s mate is working today so I suggested Bill could play online with him til it was Richard’s bedtime which is usually around 10. Sigh, I then had a very dull Friday evening and by the time Bill left the office (around 11pm) I’d started watching a film on the TV (Office Space) and so we never got to see the Pay Per View Napoleon Dynamite or Shaun of the Dead we’d planned. I’d by then probably drunk far too much wine on my own and it had made me sleepy and so once the Office Space was over went to bed, while Bill returned to the computer. Rats. Enjoyed finally seeing Office Space btw as so many people seem to make references to it, and it was somewhat amusing, but it fell a little flat for me.
Probably not the best day to be watching that film either as Bill was rather stressed about work having just had an end of day meeting to be told that a whole bunch of people had been made redundant due to cut backs, including a couple of people we’re quite shocked about. No one from his department, but coincidentally Michelle also quit yesterday and will be moving on to work alongside Paul at his new job. As you can imagine Bill is fretting somewhat right now.
Oh, Tuesday was Pancake Day?!! Who else remembered? Probably not I if it hadn’t been for my lovely Daddy reminding me the night before. I still managed to forget to buy lemons though, so this year I experimented with some lime juice we had in the fridge. Not bad, but not great either. Ended up dowsing them in maple syrup instead. Mmmmm like pancakes. Must remember the lemons next year though, just so much better. I used a slightly different recipe this year too, was an improvement as the pancakes were much more consistent..thanks Delia!
Heh. Just remembered…before I went to bed last night I couldn’t keep away from WOW either. *hits self over head* I just HAD to check my mail to see how my auctions were faring, and then couldn’t resist creating my new character…Trago the Night Elf Druid. (Am saving Grockle for the horde side…he/she can be a troll, an undead, a tauren or an orc) I got Gertrude to send him some nice big bags and even ran Trago through the Noob area to the nearest post box so he can pick up his mail when it arrives. Oh dear. There is no saving us! I need to get out more.
