There’s nothing quite like the disappointment of feeling like it’s Friday only to remember that, actually, you still have another entire day to go before the weekend. Repeat every 2-3 hours and you have my day yesterday. But now, finally, it really is Friday. Hurrah! How about some letters?
Dear godson. So, you’re a big 5 years old already! Glad you liked your present (I gave you a marble run because I secretly want one for myself).
Dear weather. Umm, you know it’s supposed to be late summer, right? You’ll have plenty of time for your cold and wind and rain over the next few months so could you at least try to let us down gently please?
Dear rainbow I saw last night. You were beautiful – the biggest (width-wise) and brightest I have ever seen. It’s just a shame you had already disappeared by the time I ran inside and grabbed my camera.
Dear Christmas cross stitch. (Yes, I used the C-word. In September.). I really need to get a move on if I’m going to get all my cards finished in time! It’s less than three months until my sister’s wedding, and I’m hoping to take all the family cards with me when I go to England for that…
Dear scales. Well, at least the number you’re showing my now is back to my previous highest-ever weight from before the holiday completely threw everything out the window. You seem to have stalled again now though. Let’s see some downward movement next week, okay?
That’s all folks. Much love to all who are reading. Have a great weekend.
Hooray for Friday! I have been so, so tired all week so now I’m looking forward to just chilling for a while But first I have a whole day of work ahead of me. Aaah.
Here are some letters.
Dear BBC Entertainment. It is very annoying that you neither show up in the TV Guide nor have any information available when I press the “Info” button. I never know when anything is on you, so I just have to keep flicking over to make sure I’m not missing something good. (Currently loving “The Coroner” but I keep forgetting what time it starts and missing the beginning. Grrr.)
Dear sunflower. We did not plant you, but somehow you have grown in one of our pots. Luckily I like sunflowers, so you were an unexpected treat.
Dear ice cream. Whyyy must you be so tasty? Luckily it’s also been too hot to cook recently so I’ve been balancing you out with salad. It seems to be working – the number on the scales is only fluctuating slightly (but refusing to go down any further, ever. Which is totally your fault, ice cream). Speaking of which…
Dear scales. I was entirely unimpressed with the number you showed me this morning. I ate fruit for breakfast yesterday. Fruit! Surely that should result in instant weight loss? 😉
Dear bookshelves. You appear to be overflowing again. I’m really not sure how that could have happened… 😉
Well, that’s all from me for today. Have a great weekend everyone!
How is it Friday again people? This week has gone way too fast, again. I had another public holiday yesterday (the last one until October!) and I was hoping to get lots done, but I didn’t even manage half of it. *Sigh* Anyway, on with the letters.
Dear kettle. I’m sorry I have to boil you so many times before I actually get round to making a cup of tea. You can blame your being overworked on all my work, okay?
Dear parsley. It was very exciting to put some of you in my salad last night having grown you from a seed!
Dear WordPress. What happened to the media space upgrade option? Apparently the only way I can get more space for photos now is by purchasing a domain. I don’t want a domain, just more space!
Dear weather. I’m glad you’ve cooled down a little bit – over 30°C is just too much for me!
Right, that’s all for today. Lunch break over… back to work! Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
Hello! It seems like forever since I last wrote Friday letters. Or much of anything really. I’m not sure how many I can even think of today, to be honest, but I’ll give it a go anyway…
Dear UK. Well, you’ve managed not to completely mess it up this time. I guess that’s something? Whether there is any hope for the next few years still remains to be seen though…
Dear chilli plants. I’m loving your pretty flowers, but when do we get chillies?
Dear unread books. I am aware that you’re piling up on the shelves again faster than I can actually read you. I will get round to you all eventually though, promise!
Dear bathroom floor. I would like to track down whoever chose you and have words with them! You are exactly the right colour to show every single strand of hair that falls on you, usually immediately after I’ve hoovered. Aargh!
Dear fellow bloggers. If I haven’t been to see you in a while I apologise! I still care about what you’re up to, but other things keep getting in the way.
Right, that’s enough for today. Have a great weekend everyone!
Friday, Friday, Friday! I am so pleased you’re here! You would think after a four-day weekend I would be happy to do plenty of work this week, but in fact I’m really looking forward to the weekend. That probably makes it sound like I hate my job… I swear I don’t! But I’ve spent most of the week working on a single not all that interesting translation and I could use a break from it. Plus it’s looking like some fun things might be in order this weekend, and who wouldn’t look forward to fun things? I still have a full day of work to get there before that though. So for now let’s have some letters.
Dear scales. I very much appreciated you’re sticking to the same number despite all my indulgences in Berlin, but it’s been nearly a week now so it would be nice if you could start moving in a downward direction again…
Dear plants. I wish there was some way I could make you grow faster. I’m so excited for you to look all pretty on my balcony.
Dear Easter chocolate. I hope you know how much willpower it cost me to ignore you now that you’re half price in all the supermarkets! Please hurry up and sell out so I can no longer be tempted!
Dear home office. If I were to look up the word “chaos” in the dictionary I’m sure a photo of you would appear! I’m so sorry. One day we will find the right piece of furniture for you…
Dear Switzerland. In 5 days I will have been living in you for 2 years. Time flies!
Right, that’s it for today. Have an amazing weekend everyone!
p.s. Tomorrow is April’s photo an hour day with Jane and Louisa. Who’s playing?
Good morning! I am sooo pleased it’s nearly the weekend. This week has gone both really fast and really slow… I was surprised when it was Wednesday already, but then Wednesday and Thursday felt like they lasted at least 2 days each! Jan has choir stuff tonight and tomorrow, so I plan to use the time to relax and sleeeeeep! But right now I shall give you my Friday letters.
Dear Britain. I still can’t believe you actually went through with the “Brexit” thing. Even though we have two years, I’m already in mourning for my freedom of movement in Europe and a home country that didn’t hate foreigners. R.I.P GREAT Britain… there’s nothing “great” about isolationism and xenophobia 😦
Dear hair. I will never understand how you can be fine with a shampoo for weeks and then suddenly decide to become immune to it or something and feel sticky/greasy while I am washing you. I can’t keep switching shampoos halfway through a bottle so please sort yourself out!
Dear self. If you stay up two hours past the time you were planning to go to sleep because you can’t put a book down you then forfeit your right to complain you’re tired the next day. You can be well rested or well read, not both!
Dear trees. You are looking very pretty right now all dressed in your spring colours. (Well, most of you… some are still looking a bit bare!).
Dear sparrows. You are cute and always a welcome visitor to the balcony but how can something so small be so loud?! I would very much appreciate it if you wouldn’t sit out the bedroom side of the building chirping on and on and on for half an hour at half five in the morning!
I can’t think of anything else. have a great Friday and an even better weekend everyone!
Wow… is it really Friday again? This week seems to have gone incredibly fast – although, bizarrely, March seems to be taking longer than January and February did. Not sure what that’s all about… I have also been a bit absent from the blogosphere this week because work has been CRAZY, so apologies for only getting round to responding to your comments today! Anyway… let’s do some letters…
Dear mam. In case you’re reading… Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday!
Dear spell checker. Mam is a word, you silly thing!
Dear sleep. I haven’t had much of you this week and I miss you! I hope I can catch up with you next week (the weekend is going to be busy. *Sigh*).
Dear London. Such awful news coming from my home country this week. You are in my thoughts – we will never let terrorism win!
Dear daffodils. I’m so happy to see you all whenever I leave the house. You’re such happy looking flowers!
Dear office. I promise one day it will be your turn to get new furniture so I don’t have to close your door to hide the mess every time visitors come!
Dear boxes. How is it I have so many of you yet when it comes to sending something none of you are the right size?!
Right, that’s it for today. Happy weekend everyone!
