Pretty busy week, yet a nice one.
Got a really nice surprise on Friday (I was lucky to be home): this big flower bouquet, a dozen of deep red roses, very very beautiful! There was a little card attached, with nothing but a kiss and a Scots name. Thank you sweety 🙂
and I don’t really do Valentine’s day: I don’t need a date to love him,
or to express that love. On Wednesday I made his favourite dish, and
his big smile from ear to ear and the lights in his eyes are more than
So we just had our usual Friday coffee and dinner, and then went home and watched a DVD: ‘Titus’, after ‘Titus Andronicus’ by Shakespeare, with Anthony Hopkins and Jessica Lange. Man, it’s such a good movie, but harsh, violent and cruel, and not exactly Valentine’s Day fodder :-p
Yesterday I got up real early and started cleaning
the guest room: cleared away all the junk, put a lot of stuff in the
emptied cupboards or back here in my office, rearranged all the
furniture, so that the room looks a lot bigger. I was tired and covered
in dust, but it’s well worth it. Gonna start redecorating next weekend, I
think: stripping the wall paper, painting, the lot.
Went to my physiotherapist in the morning by bicycle, and proud of that! Not that it’s that far (like 3 miles/5km or so) but I’m so pathetic that even that pleases me.
In the evening we went to friends for a most pleasant evening: very good food, delightful company, swell conversations.
Today I worked a bit for school, and then went for lunch at my parents: once more delicious food, then coffee, then a nice walk in the bright sunshine and freezing cold. Hehe.
Tomorrow will be a long day: school field trip to Tongeren, a city with a splendid Gallo-Roman museum and lots of remains of that era in the city too. So I’m going there with 5 colleagues and 101 students (1-2 grade). Took a lot of organisation too, so I hope it will be worth it.
