I feel I have lost time and forgotten things that I thought were fun or cool or interesting and wanted to tell people about. It’s sort of like if you are sick and in bed for a day or two doing nothing but sleeping, but everyone else is carrying on around you. When you get up it feels like it should just be the next morning from when you went to bed or something, but it’s not, it’s a couple of days later and those days are full of experiences and events for the people who weren’t sick in bed. I have that going on from being in the hospital with Abigail. But it’s not just from Sunday to Tuesday, it’s almost from Friday evening. Saturday morning I did some things getting ready for midsummer, then the rest of the day was spent at my mum’s house having midsummer. Saturday evening, Daniel and I went out to his work’s end of year dinner. We had a bit of a sleep in and slow morning on Sunday morning, then my mum mentioned that Abigail didn’t seem to be herself, so I went to get her.. and got back on Tuesday afternoon at 1300.
I had a nice day on Saturday. I got lots of nice things and gave lots of nice things. Gayle got me a Take That CD. I got various Nems stuff, of course, including some dark chocolate ones from Kate which I haven’t had opportunity to try yet so that was good :) I got a couple of books, some other chocolates, some smelly stuff and some silicone cupcake moulds. I already have the mini ones so now I have got the normal size ones too.
On Saturday evening we went out to Lure restaurant at The Coro for Daniel’s work end-of-year thing. Considering it is a seafood restaurant that has won lots of awards, I had quite a nice time and the meal wasn’t half bad. (I don’t do seafood.) I even managed to chat a little to some of the other people. When we left, Daniel’s boss’ wife was feeling a little .. jovial after the liquid refreshments she’d enjoyed with her dinner, and pronounced that I had the best knockers she’d ever seen. Other highlights were the funky cutlery that they had, the handles were 90 degrees rotated to the business end so it looked like they were standing up on edge; and also the funky unisex toilets which had glass doors. They’re transparent until you close the lock on the door, at which point they turn opaque/frosted. Very cool effect, but you really don’t want to think about it too much while you’re in there or else you’ll start to worry that it might suddenly malfunction and leave you on display to whoever is about.
