It's good to be home.  
Had a terrific weekend. Yesterday was the Birman club Christmas party, for which I trekked an hour north to our club president's home. Good friends, good food and good conversation; actually, a bit too much of that good food. I really didn't think I'd be able to eat again yesterday, but...

Rather than going home afterwards I headed to my son's place, for dinner and a sleepover. We sat up until after 1am just talking. His lady had to go to bed earlier as she had to work today, but we had nothing to do and all the time in the world. And I did manage to eat some dinner after all.

Then this morning we went shopping, finishing up at Coffee Club for a late lunch. I headed home after that, getting back around 3pm and running from a storm all the way.

Tonight I'm sleepy, and not all that hungry so I settled for crackers with peanut butter.

As a result of my traipsing about, not much was done around here this weekend. I did manage to do a couple of loads of washing this afternoon, and hung the wash downstairs out of the rain. Thanks to the rain I didn't have to water my garden at least.

If you're a Sherlock fan and you haven't already seen this, there's a great advent calendar here, plus an mp3 which can be downloaded; I'm using it as a ringtone at present. Very Christmassy!

I does sound like a lovely weekend, what with the party and getting to spend time with your son.

It really was. Even though we live in the same city I don't see as much of him as I'd like to.

Sounds like a terrific weekend, mate. As for me - didn't do too much on Sunday at all, slept mainly, as we had been to a friend's place to put her new BBQ together. It was a 2-Parter - started Thursday, finished Saturday *g* ... but at least it's ready for Xmas! Just have to take the gas bottle back next week.

As for laundry - got two big baskets to do, but the washing machine isn't spin-drying :(, so that means everything is now drip-drying ... argh! May have to find a few pennies to get that repaired - never ends, does it? Ah well, $#!+ happens ... *grin*

Like your new layout - very Victorian-era, hey? :)))

Re: It's good to be home.
Now that you've helped your friend put her BBQ together you'll have to try it out, yes?
Bugger about your washing machine, and at this time of the year too. At least stuff will still dry fairly quickly.
New layout is the wallpaper from 221b in the BBC series Sherlock. When he's bored one day he spray paints a smiley face on the wall, then nicks John's gun and proceeds to shoot holes in the face. *g* He's a mad bugger.
