Tough Life

This week we celebrated Julies birthday, for 3 days. It was a long week. Dinner at Mother India’s Cafe on Tuesday night with Louise, A Play, a Pie, and a Pint followed by lunch at Bloody Marys then early evening cocktails at Rogano on Wednesday, and finally, drinks at the Ben Nevis followed by lots of wine and a fab dinner at Roastit Bubbly Jocks on Thursday night in Partick. I must have gained a few pounds on my hips and lost a few pounds from the bank, but it was all good..

You have to celebrate birthdays. They only come around once a year, and once they stop, it’s too late.

We’re penny pinching now, I leave in a week for Australia and if there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that a holiday to Australia is never cheap.. especially for us, especially when we have a stopover in Singapore on the way home. We’re making lists. And more lists. I’m not sure why, we never usually stick to them, but I guess it’s some form of organisational tool, lulling our mind with discipline.

The rest is fairly ordinary. Getting ready. Finishing tasks. Planning itinerary’s for Rogers & Lorraines visit in June, Stephanie and Alexandres visit in August and our trip to the Outer Hebrides in September.

It’s about all I can manage today. Up at 7am, gym by 8am it’s now almost 12 noon and I’m ready for a nap. Tough life.

This was taken last year, Julie and Eleanor celebrating – not much has changed…
