Steps 21+22nd April and other assorted fun.

Forgot to reset the counter - so over Weds/Thurs I walked 22551 steps. Not toooooo bad...

This week has been hectic. I've been doing so many different things I don't know what I'm doing in the end. Will be nice to have a relaxing weekend though. Hah! As if.

I'm slightly frustrated by the lack of enthusiasm in certain projects but nothing new there. I just wish people wouldn't take me and other people, and the work we do, for granted. Watch what happens if I take a step back...

Finally spoke to my parents last night, I've been complaining (heh) they haven't rung me in ages but to be fair I've not rung them either... I'm incredibly bad at keeping in touch (which you'll probably know if you know me at all!) and it's something I need to get better at.

But not now. Now I have to go get ready for work.

It's good to write, even if they're just words and there's not much too them. But I like (nearly) all words.

Is this becoming a steps-blog? Sure looks like it... I'm sorry!

Weekend fun.

Have had a lovely weekend in the sun. I've missed it.

Need to start walking again; I've walked home all week but it'd be nice to walk to work too. Monday is supposed to rain though... perhaps I'll let Fi pick me up (note to self - get her something as thanks!) and see what it's like on the way back? It's easier to walk home cos if you're warm/flustered/soaked from rain when you get home that doesn't matter - it matters more if you're like that when you get to work!

On a different note, I keep meaning to make muffins. Someone just told me he made cookies this weekend - I want cookies!

Having a fairly lazy Sunday night, CSI NY on TV now, Desperate Housewives in half an hour... Have had early nights all weekend but a fair bit to drink so have been knackered - so I think another early(ish) night is in order.

We've also been to view some houses - they've not been great if I'm honest. Two of the three we saw were nice, but very small. One claimed to have a kitchen/diner, the other a dining/lounge. Neither of them would fit a table - especially not ours. Don't want to get rid of our lovely table though!!

Genius song.

Magnus Uggla - Dansar aldrig nykter

Ska man fixa en fru
bör man lite till mans
kunna svänga sig i dans
i en lagom glad och svängig rytmik
till nåt som kallas för musik
för inte kan man bara kliva fram till en tjej
och säga ska du följa med hem till mig
Först ska man ju rejva fram till klockan tre
så kanske det blir té
Men jag saknar både djärvhet och mod
och jag har inget negerblod
och jag tycker techno, disco och funk
är ett enda jävla dunk
Men efter några geting vänder det tvärt
börjar svänga om höfter och stjärt
Festar jag på gränsen till att jag ska spy
så breakar jag som hela Rinkeby

Jag dansar aldrig nykter någonstans
aldrig inte en chans
att jag dansar nykter
kallat´t undanflykter
om du vill
Utan minsta promill
står jag still

Går man ut en vardag är man en blyg
som framåt tolv går hem i smyg
men är det lördagskväll och sån´t oerhört race
att man stänger varje place
då törs man också utan svårighet kliva fram
och bjuda upp varenda kaxig madame
Mitt under en sådan natt i jakt på synd
så träffar jag mitt fynd

Jag dansar aldrig nykter någonstans
aldrig inte en chans
att jag dansar nykter
kallat´t undanflykter
om du vill
Utan minsta promill
står jag still

När vi har gift oss
och man i samstämd hals
avkräver mig en bröllopsvals
och fast jag står bland släkten i inhyrd frack
säger jag utan snack

jag dansar aldrig nykter någonstans
aldrig inte en chans
att jag dansar nykter
kallat´t undanflykter
om du vill
Utan minsta promill
står jag still

Dad's birthday shindigs!

Went home for Easter to celebrate dad's 60th birthday.

We came home on the Thursday afternoon and spent the next couple of days cooking, and picking birch branches...

Let me back up a bit there. The branches were to make bird's nests to put painted eggs, mini-daffodils and feathers in for table decorations at the party. So Joanna, Mike and I went for a walk in the forrest (well - it's a very small forrest; but I remember it as being massive...) to find some. We should probably have thought of the fact that birches don't have hanging branches low enough in forrests... d'oh! Finally found some 3 minutes from the house instead. Very inconspicuously cut branches off and shoved them into a bag...

Anyway. The party was on Easter Saturday and we had 48 people there. Eek! Mostly family (my cousins have many kids!) and some friends of the family. It was really nice to see people I've not seen in years.

Dad had a wonderful time (he says! ;) ), so a great big huge thanks to everyone who helped us make it such a lovely day.


Spider time has started. Already. Grr! Notes to self - do not leave anything on the floor. Empty bag out when I get home. Shake everything after picking it up/before using it. least we won't still be living here when the big spiders come out to hunt in Sept/Oct time!

I've no life, apparently.

(stolen from Colleen's Facebook... I definitely don't have a life - seen just over half of these! I'm not sure I should be proud... Actually, the fact that I actually bothered doing this survey is more of a testiment to the fact I have no life than having seen the films!)

"SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 85 films, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 239 films on this list. Copy this list, go to your own facebook account, paste this as a note. Then, put x's next to the films you've seen, add them up, change the header adding your number, and click post at the bottom. Have fun."

Steps 7 April

Only 12582... That's what I get for getting a lift in the morning ;)

Really need to blog more. And get my foot sorted out!
