Friday letters

Well people, it’s Friday again and I was almost very late for work this morning! I always set my alarm for 5:45, take my pill then reset the alarm to 6 a.m. I did that as usual this morning, but for some reason the 6 a.m. alarm either didn’t go off or we both slept through it. I woke up at 6:55, checked the time then jumped out of bed in a panic. I have to leave at 7:20 to catch my train, and I actually did! I was showered, dressed, teeth brushed and bag packed in 25 minutes. Phew! Luckily today wasn’t a hair washing day 🙂 Now it’s lunch time, and also time for Friday letters.

Dear alarm. Why?? That is all.

Dear new work customer. Thank you for giving me something to translate this week that was actually interesting! I feel like I’ve mostly been translating the same things for months, so it made a nice change to learn somthing new.

Dear weather. You’ve been glorious all week, then this morning it was raining. Please bring back the sunshine for the weekend (and most especially for Sunday when my boyfriend’s choir are performing at an outdoor festival!)

Dear boyfriend. You’ve been working so hard again this week! So I’m planning on making you a surprise while you’re at your all-day choir practice on Saturday. (Don’t worry readers, Jan never reads my blog so he won’t know he has a surprise coming until he receives it).

Dear cross stitch. I can’t wait to have you up on the kitchen wall! Just need to iron on the interfacing and frame you now 🙂

Dear Scotland. I’m glad to see you’ve decided to stay with the UK. I just hope the politicians can now work something out that will make both sides happy – and also that if any Scots are upset about the outcome, they don’t decide to come rampaging into England. The area I’m from will literally be on the front line if that happens! Time to rebuild our castles? 😉 (Also, I do wonder whether many more people would have voted Yes if it hadn’t meant being stuck with Alex Salmond as their leader?)

That’s all. I need to eat and get back to work now. Have a great weekend everyone!

 I’m linking up with Kate again for Daily Diaries.

Listen to the choir sing

Jan’s choir performed at a little cafe/bar place in town yesterday, so naturally I went along. It’s the first time I’ve seen them perform (last time I was ill) and I’d only ever heard two out of the 8 of them sing before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I really enjoyed myself though, and I thought they were all very good. (I’m not entirely sure whether my opinion counts though seeing as I don’t have a musical bone in my body and can’t sing a note. It must be nice to have a talent…).

Other than that I didn’t do much this weekend. Most of Saturday afternoon was spent planning a trip around the UK in August with Jan and a friend. We’ll be starting in London then heading to the North East of England (via Wales) and finally to London, before coming back down to take the ferry back. Phew. It’s all very vague at the moment (the only part we have definite dates for is London) but I’m hoping to plan in a few meetings with friends along the way. And if anyone knows of any good, reasonably priced B&Bs in Salisbury, Cardiff or Edinburgh then please send the details my way. All recommendations gratefully received!

I was going to bake today, but I couldn’t decide whether to make cookies or cake, then Jan went home and told me he won’t be coming over again til Tuesday(!) so I ended up not bothering. No point in making an entire cake just for me! Instead I’m sitting here eating cheese flavoured tortilla chips while waiting for my salmon with spinach and tomatoes to finish cooking. Hurry up fish, I’m hungry!
