'twas hard.

Thrusday sign at dartsIt was a hard week this week, going back to work after two weeks off. There was a lot to catch up on, and my stuff from the holidays is all still sitting in cases in the living room! Anyway, got back to darts (won my doubles 501), made a new pouch for my stones (the one they came with kinda sucked), tried out my new stones, and I bought a slow cooker and tested it out – mac & cheese, which turned out a bit dry, I think I have to revise the recipe…

I’m Jack Benny’s age

SnowflakesWhile I was home over the holidays Mum took delight in telling me I’d be Jack Benny’s age on my birthday this year. Funnier than the comment, though, was her delight in sharing it with me – and, to be honest, every time I think of it I smile, so that’s all good.

Okay, so let’s do this in order or I’ll get emotional.

A whole new year

Happy new year everyone! I’m in Kitchener at J*&P&A’s again, as per usual. Lastnight was nice, we had people over to celebrate the new year (and I didn’t have any alcohol, what’s up with that?) but tonight we went to Steve & Sue’s – Steve kept me well-lubricated, Sue made some really fabulous food, and I had a fun card game with the parents too. Nice night.
