Mid-Week Report:

We have found ourselves a new home (insert a Woohoo). NO more flat-hunting, no more cold water showers, alas no more Uncle Boris (mental note: MUST get picture with him & Annie before leaving…Jen take note!). The new abode is a four minute walk from present flat, but (according to Jen..who is only one of us to actually view the place) it is a WAY more modern (i.e. no nails sticking out of floorboards and, especially for Keri..a tv that can be hooked to DVD player!!). Technically it is a two bedroom flat, but there is a wee study which we will be converting ot a bedroom (where is trading spaces when you need them..I would take Vern thx). We will rotate on this bedroom – 2 months each. Did I mention the flat is two minutes from the local Tesco..a cheap grocery store with fab discounts at approximately 7.00 every night..discounts on baked goods in particular! Sigh.. I believe I forgot to pack my willpower before I left Canada.
We are moving in today & tomorrow.

New Address is:

4 H Canon Street

In unrelated birthday is August 10th and I will be even older than I am now.

I need a haircut. I have spent half the morning tugging at the hair on the nape of my neck, and am very tempted to take a pair of scissors to the loo and just snip off the piece that is driving me batty. . Argh..short hair = major frustrations. Then again it also appears to = must maintain present hairdo in effort to continue being unique & memorable. Anyone who’s seen pics of me with slightly longer hair knows there is no other option anyway.

Last night us gals went to watch a softball game (yes they DO have softball here..hip hip hooray I guess) . Our friend was playing..and he was on the winning (aka Kickass) team. An enjoyable time was had, despite fact that game lasted only 45 mins (mercy ending at 5th inning when score was 18 – 3 for Brandon’s team) Jen is going to join the team. Keri & I are going to practice G-O J-E-N cheers and spectate the game (while keeping one eye on the men’s rugby practice at the other end of the field). .I believe we will also try to partake in the after-game drinking. Its all about priorities!

Reading assignment for the week – 1984 by George Orwell . If you’ve read this, maybe Brave New World by Aldous Huxley or The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe by CS Lewis. Just a suggestion.

I am reading Roald Dahl’s autobiography..absolutely fabulous..if not a bit disturbing.

Jen & I have decided to take mini-break form Filthy McNasty’s. Wonder how long we can hold out..I miss Don the Karaoke guy alreadyJ Anyway, with new abode I have feeling we will seek out new watering hole (S)..the WalkAbout has great potential!

That is all the news that’s fit to print. I am still checking my hotmail so if you want to send me email please do..just not attachments as they are clogging up my account.
