Friday letters

Good morning! With the exception of Monday’s post (which I actually wrote and scheduled the day before), I’ve been kind of absent from the blogosphere this week. Sorry about that! You’d think working from home would give me more time for blogging, but it doesn’t seem to work like that. Probably because I used to write a lot of blog posts in my lunch break but now I’m trying to actually leave the flat at lunch time. And after work I want to get the computer switched off as quickly as possible, not hang around writing stuff for my blog. Unfortunately my tablet refuses to upload posts (or even save them as drafts – none of the buttons work!), so unless I can motivate myself to schedule a load of posts at the weekend blogging will continue to be sporadic. Anyway, I went to pick up my proper residence permit on Wednesday so to celebrate we’re having horse steaks for tea tonight. Yes, you read that right. I bought horse steaks on purpose πŸ˜€ Now, on with the letters…

MailboxDear weather people. I wish you would agree on what the weather’s going to be like this weekend! Is tomorrow going to be cloudy but warm? Sunny with a few showers and possible thunder storms? Raining all day with thunder storms in the afternoon? I need to know!

Dear self. There is a never-ending supply of water in the taps, so drink it! And I don’t mean quickly down two glasses of water before bed because you suddenly realise you’ve barely drank any water all day…

Dear friends/acquaintances/family. FOUR birth announcements and two pregnancy announcements this week? SERIOUSLY? What is going on?

Dear Life of Pi. Sorry I abandoned you for a shorter/easier to read book this week. I will get back to you soon, promise!

Dear horse meat. I can’t wait to have you in my belly!

OK, that’s all I can think of today. Working from home has its advantages, but when you spend most of your time at home it doesn’t leave much to write about in a weekly update type post. Oh well, have a great weekend everyone!

*Editing to add: WordPress just informed me that I’ve been blogging for 7 years today, so happy blogiversary to me!*

  1. Oh wow happy 7 year blogiversary! That’s impressive! πŸ™‚

    I had to have a little giggle about your Horse Meat letter! Isn’t it weird how the whole of the UK freaked out over the Tesco horsemeat scandal! Yet we’ve probably been eating it for years and really enjoyed it!

  2. Horse meat is pretty common in Italy, too – there are even specialist horse butchers in some towns. I quite like it, though my favourite “you ate WHAT?” meat is still kangaroo πŸ˜‰ (no seriously, roo is delicious)

  3. Seven years – congrats!!! (And re: water, yes, definitely better to drink more. πŸ™‚ I am usually pretty good, but apparently didn’t drink enough yesterday, as this morning I proceeded to chug an entire liter in 75 minutes.)

  4. I abandoned Les Miserables for a lightweight book this week too! It is a good idea to get out of the house when you can really – I should have got out of the house a bit more this last year.
