Wednesday - clear and cool
Merry Christmas everyone!
An okay day today.
I got up this morning and took my bread out of the maker, but I let F do the actual taking of out of the pan. I went back to sleep while he had breakfast and got himself off to sleep.
After I got up, I had some breakfast and did a few things around the apartment. F called me to ask me out for lunch. I accepted, but sort of wish I hadn't.
I got dressed and went out for lunch. We went to the Chinese restaurant he likes so I had yakisoba for a change. Meh.
After lunch F dropped me off at home and I planned to start work in the kitchen. Instead, I took a nap on the couch. I was so tired. I think it was lunch!
When I was able to wake up, I got up and started to prepare for dinner. I started with the salad and washed and prepped all the veggies. The later it got, the more I had to do. I started the potatoes about the time that F said he was going to come home soon.
When F arrived, he had the chicken with him, but he started to clean up the living room a bit. That was all well and good, but I hoped for help with other things! I didn't get it. When I asked him a simple question about having a table cloth on the table he got mad at me and went to bed. Rather than getting upset today, I just kept working. I had decided that even if he didn't want to eat, I did.
It took a bit of juggling, but I made the dressing for the salad, set the table (with cloth) and prepared the mashed potatoes, gravy and yorkshire pudding. When there was 5 minutes left on the pudding, I went in and told F that dinner would be ready soon and he was welcome to join.
We had a lovely dinner. I drank Peartizer which is just different enough to be special, but F switched to wine and beer. We even had a bit of Christmas Pudding afterwards. Yum.
F did the dishes, a very valiant proposition as I had used a lot in my cooking. Then, he went to bed. I watched Men in Black 3, then followed it up with some regular TV. I worked on my shrug and got one side sewn up. Yay. Nearly done. Yay me.
F got up again around 1:50 and put on his PJs and did a few things in the living room & kitchen. He's back in bed now. I will be heading there soon.
So, what did I get for Christmas? From my friend I got some clothes, from my sister's family some mitts and a light. I also got a magic trackpad for my computer. Woot. I still have a few things to arrive I think.
That's it for me. It was a good day, but I'm a little glad that it's over! Talk to you all tomorrow night. Merry Christmas eh!
