Here we are again,
it's Friday (a Good Friday at that)
and my Rocking post.
A week at home and away from work
has been bliss. The first couple of
days were warm, sunny and beautiful,
the rest more like the arctic tundra.
We hummed and haa'd about
lighting the fire last night but
decided not to on the basis that I had
been wearing flip flops a couple
of days previously.
It made sense at the time!
Luke passed his theory driving test.
I'm pleased for him but also kinda nervous.
He's just (!) got to do the proper driving
test and then he'll be loose on the roads of
Britain. Scary thought.
Hope is having a super time in Italy.
I receive a text every night and she's
bubbling with excitement and happiness.
I'm so happy for her.
And I can now say that she'll be
back tomorrow, so I'm happy about
that too :o)
Luke, Grant and I enjoyed
a film from FilmFlex
(on the tv).
It's a BBC film called
Great cast, interesting story and
really rather spooky.
Quality acting too.
Coffee with my friend Louise yesterday
We caught up on each other's news -
her news was far more interesting than mine!
We're planning to go to the new
Damian Hirst exhibition
at Tate Modern
I hold him in the same kind of esteem
as I held Tracey Emin.
I didn't really 'get' her artwork,
until I went to her fantastic exhibition
with Penny last year
and I finally understood what she's all about.
Doesn't mean to say that I want her artwork
to grace my walls but that's not what it's for.
Much the same feelings really.
That's why I want to go to the exhibition
to see for myself what he's all about.
I'm sure he's more than a sliced up shark
and bejewelled skull.
Grant is working for most of the Easter break
but he will be off on Monday,
so it'll be lovely to spend the day together.
The fridge freezer is not broken!
Strange thing to say, I know.
I took my photo of the fridge for
Art House Co-op.
Grant had tried to fix the interior light
but, how shall I put it, experienced some
difficulty. There was a big bang, broken glass
and the surge box had tripped.
The next morning Luke asked why his
cereal milk was warm. Aaaaarrrrggghhhh,
the fridge was not working.
I texted Grant who suggested that I change
the fuse in the plug.
He had clearly forgotten that I am a Real Princess
because everyone knows that Real Princesses
do not change fuses in plugs.
When Grant got home from work he got out his
bicycle repair kit and changed the fuse.
The fridge works again,
as if by magic!
There's never a good time to buy a new
fridge freezer but now is
not a good time to be
buying a new fridge freezer
Ok, Luke and I are off for a brunch now.
It's taken him rather a long time to
drag himself out of bed so what was meant
to be breakfast has changed a bit!
I'll post this with Queen Virginia
and try and pop by the other Rockers this afternoon
(although the sun is out so I might have to be in it!).
