Much Ado About Nothing


Nothing much going on today. Well, except a friend of ours, who also happens to be a fifteen year old boy, walked in on me while I was on the loo. Eeeeek-a-rama! I screamed, he hollered. I don't think he's ever going to be able to look me in the eye again, poor lad.

So with all that terrible embarrassment, plus our exhaustion from speaking a foreign language all day, every day, plus the wisdom teeth that are now troubling this husband-of-mine, we both came home and had an afternoon nap. Ah, the afternoon nap, the backbone of my existence, my reason for living! I should have been born Spanish.

But the great thing about today, is this little period of time I get while husband snoozes on, (poor love, he really is tired). You know early-birds, those people who like to make everyone else feel miserable and unworthy by saying how wonderful it is to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning, and how much they get done while it's all quiet? Well this is how I imagine it to be like for them. This window of stolen solitude on a Saturday afternoon, that comes round once every six months or so. I can sun myself on my not-quite roof garden, plant out my growing plants, write my blog, you get the picture. All very mundane and domesticated...but who cares.

No pictures of plants this time by the way. The clueless gardener is ashamed of her general neglect of her vegetable-dependants. Courgette plant and french beans doing ok, if a little straggly. Carrots and salad not growing at all. Then oddly, one pot of basil doing fine, and another appears to be dead. Ughhh. I'm annoyed, I thought it would all be a lot easier than this.
