The return of the I :)
I'm back!! I returned to Blighty yesterday, but I was too mixed up (timezones) to get anything productive done, let alone update here. I'm now back in work, and so have nothing better to do with my time than update ! :)

Ok... I think I managed to get up to the end of last Saturday, so I have some catching up to do. Sunday morning Misty's dad came to meet us at the hotel. He drove us to Misty's Apt. and fixed a keyboard rest to the computer desk. We drove back to the hotel for Misty's car, then we made our own way back to daddy's ... via the grocery store. Misty baked cookies for the office, and we finally made it to bed just after midnight. The fact I managed to stay awake that long requires some sort of mention cos I'm soooo proud!! ... jet-lag is a biatch.

Monday we went shopping. I spent a lot of last week shopping, but I did find some kewl stuffs, and a couple of DVD's (at amazingly low prices) of films I can't get here. I bought clothes, PJ's, CD's, and some toys.

Tuesday after a fantastic pasta meal, I saw "Episode II - Attack of the Clones". I won't go into detail, but I enjoyed the film. Yoda kicks ass! "Judge me by my size, you should not!"

Wednesday was Misty's birthday, and we went and stayed at a little B&B up in the mountains. When we first got there the woman who runs the place scared the bejezus out of the pair of us. It was like Norman Bates motel! ... I'm not saying she wasn't nice (she did invite us along to bible study!) I'm just saying she was a tad scary!
We found a nice little restaurant and celebrated with good food and soapy dishwater (Hogaarden Weise).... After 3 we were both a little tipsy, so we stumbled back to the B&B. In the morning we made good use of their jacuzzi :-D

Thursday we went to stay with mommy. Misty got her birthday pressy : two sheep! There's a black one and a white one, tickityboo and sunshine. Within an hour of arriving at mommy's I was chasing two sheep around a field (for the purposes of getting them to their food of course!) After that - I made butter from milk straight from a cow. You can call me Farmer Giles from now on! :) I passed on the chance to milk the cow ... so perhaps I'm not that much of a farmer after all.

Friday was another shopping day with Misty and Mom, with mom trying to make me feel bad for stealing her daughter away from her.

Saturday was the big party. I was kinda dreading this part, there had ben rumours of hundreds of people turning up, and loads of children. As it turned out, I had some good fun, and eventually a few beers (after the preacher had gone home). I made ice-cream, and played horse shoes with Daddy (who beat me, but at least in the last game I managed to score some points) We returned to Daddy's saturday night.

Sunday we had a nice steak, then the trip to the airport. The flight back was ok, better for the fact that Misty returned with me. No need for tears at the airport.

Yesterday was a wipeout, getting over the jetlag again. I did get to watch a couple of the DVD's I bought whilst I was away, one of which is "Office Space" ... a must see for anyone who works in an office.

Well - that about brings me up to date, and I have skived for just long enough to get ready for lunch.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished
Current Music: Office noise
