been a long time coming...
I have been a little tardy with my updates of late. I will try and do better - yes I will...

Last week was a bad one. I was suffering from bouts of insomnia, a most frustrating condition, and puked for King and Country last Wednesday. I missed two leaving drinks on Thursday and Friday. Being off work for a few days did mean I got the house in some sort of order for Misty's return on Saturday. It was also a time for watching a lot of my more bizarre DVD's which Misty is not keen on watching with me... reading back over that last sentence I feel compelled to share that these DVD's are not of a pornographic nature - more C list sci-fi movies.

I have also been playing a lot of Sudoku. This is supposedly the new Rubics cube, if you listen to Jeremy Paxman. I have recently started solving the medium puzzles a lot quicker... my fastest time now 9:12!

Saturday settled into a nice day, after the shock of getting out of bed at 06:00... Misty's flight landed early and we were back home without adventure. After unloading and a certain amount of unpacking (and getting my iPod \o/ \o\ /o/ \o/ ) we wandered into Elm Park centre to find some sort of street party in progress. Misty wasn't really ready for crowds so after a quick stop in Webs we buggered off back home.

We had a marathon Dr Who night - watching the episode on the telly, then the two episodes I'd taped for Misty whilst she was away.

Sunday Misty left me again! She met "TOJ" in London while I visited the parental units. After installing Sudoku on Dad's machine, dropping of Joanne's laptop and getting it to talk to the wireless access point, having some home made chicken pie (hmmmmm) and of course winding up sickandpoo I came home just before a drunken Misty arrived.

We had an interesting chat about infidelity.

Monday was back at work - BD4 - I hate BD4. Monday night was the final of the softball "tournament" ... the Finance team versus the Sales/marketing team. Finance held their own for the first few innings, but their strict training regime of beer and fags didn't pay off as expected and they lost by several points and an innings. It was a cold night, but the BBQ was fantastic and the beer was free.

Yesterday LJ made permanent accounts available again. It's been about 2 years since the last sale, and that was limited to 1,000 or so IIRC. I snagged a couple for Mum and Dad, since they both started using this in anger. I guess I'll have to show them the extra features they now have.

Last night Misty made damn good pasta and we had a night in with the kitties... first time in ages!

Today I lunched with the ladies (?) and now I feel like snoozing...

Whoopi doo! Can't wait to see you. I owe you a clip-round-the-ear for giving Pa access to Sudoku. I'll forgive this time as I want new bits!xx

Re: new features....

Sudoku is like crack cocaine - only more addictive :)

Someday I will convince my husband that permanent accounts are wonderful things...until then, no lovely flashy 100 icon icons for me. ;o)

He's doing well so far!!!!!!!! :o) His favorite game is to sit in the one computer chair, crouched down real low so I don't see him...and then when I walk by, he LEAPS into the air and bats my face with his paws! LOL! I'm just glad he doesn't extend claws...
