Yep, 10.45 here, and the heat is already blasting…
Woke up yesterday at 8.00 in my tent cos of that bloody heat, my tent was in the sun and I felt scorched. Well, been scorched all weekend, but no matter what Randall or Grimlach may say, it was a hell of a weekend 🙂
Didn’t feel like updating in the first place, since glod, my sweety, nearly said it all already… But I just want to tell my wonderful week.
guy arrived here in Belgium on Sunday a week ago, the very day I got
surgery, so my beloved husband was so sweet to pick him up at the
airport. Aren’t those two the greatest ? Gotta love them !
didn’t feel too great for a couple of days, we didn’t do much on monday
and tuesday… He knew that on beforehand, but didn’t mind, since all he
really wanted was being close to me. So missed that guy the last
I wanted us to go to Paris for his
birthday, but my cycle had decided otherwise: I needed to go back to the
hospital to get the fertilized eggs implanted that day, so no Paris for
us 🙁 Oh well, gonna do it some other day then, no biggie.
with Faust en went for lunch, so there I was at a table in a restaurant,
surrounded by my three guys, chatting away. Felt so good 🙂 None of
them has a problem with it, and that is just something beyound
expectation ! At a certain moment I said ‘schat’ (the Dutch word for
honey), and both Bart and Faust looked up from their plate and said ‘yes
?’ . I started to laugh, and Faust said: ‘Well, if you had said it in
English, we might all three have answered…’ Made me blush, but also
glow inside… Happy girl, me.
Bart had to leave for work, so Faust,
Glod and I went for coffee. After a couple of hours, Faust was on his
way too, and Glod and I went for a long walk around a local lake, as I
wanted to show him the one hillthing we have around here: there is an
artificial ski piste on it, can’t be THAT small, right ? Tho we couldn’t
find it at first, was hidden behind some trees :-p
Didn’t do much more that day, didn’t feel too great in the evening again.
just great !!! I’m developing this huge cold/flu thing, in the middle
of summer and when my love is over, and when I need to stay healthy to
make the embryos feel at home. Slept a lot, helped my father-in-law a
bit who came to trim our huge hedge, but nothing more. I feel so sorry
for Glod… I currently feel like a genuine snotling… Glad I’m not
green tho :-p
At night we went for a game of Chtulhu, was hilarious
again ! Used tons of tissues tho, and developed a headache. Was
completely beat by the time we got home again.
Glod won’t let me drive to Paris the next day, it’s too long a drive when I’m ill. Guess he’s right :-((((
snot, more illness. I HATE it ! We got to clean the car, so at least
that’s done. Didn’t do much more tho, since I preferred lying on the
couch feeling rotten most of the day.
Slept long, and
at noon Peter, our beloved friend from Den Haag arrived :-))) We sat
outside in the garden for quite a while in the afternoon, just chilling,
then went for groceries and especially more Coke. Plan was to go out at
night to the first day of the Gentse Feesten with the Tolkien Society,
all dressed up as characters from Lord of the Rings, handing out flyers
for the Storytelling. No such luck: it started to pour !
I had the
feeling it might get dry again later on, so I took my costume in the
car, and we went to Faust. Needed to pick up my new spikey collar he
made for me, as a gift ! 🙂 He and Jurryt were leaving for Prague next
day, so I definitely wanted to see him before he left. Was a fun evening
! Man, we laughed a lot ! The guys decided to dub me a Chaos Hobbit !
Chaos cos of the spikes, Hobbit cos I’m small and have the costume…
Was really fun !
Then, since sun was shining again, we went for the
party zone, without costumes tho since the wussies of the society all
thought it was too wet 🙁
We managed to walk a lot, talk a lot, find
some food, listen to some music, I met quite some friends, and we
generally had good fun. Was exhausted by the cold by the time we got
home, which wasn’t too late, being 1.30 AM or so.
had to leave at 11, so I woke Glod as well and we said goodbye… Since
Glod wasn’t awake yet, he went back to bed, I did some administration,
went to see him, snuggled up to him, and fell asleep too :-p Woke up
only at 3 pm !
We did bits of nothing, I cooked, and at 8 we were at
the Tolkien Society HQ to meet Randall and the others. I dressed up as a
Hobbit, Glod was a very impressive Nazgûl ! Gonna ask him to post the
pic we took.
We walked around in the party zone, handing out flyers,
scaring people, having fun and sore feet. Managed to make it for the
fire spectacle at 11. Was good, not too great, but good. Went back into
the heart of the party, had a drink (or two/three/four) and then headed
home, since I was beat (damn cold!) and had to do storytelling next day.
up pretty late again, found some food in the party zone, went to the
Trollenkelder, got dressed up as my Hobbit again for the storytelling.
Glad my voice was pretty allright, and I didn’t sound too nasal anymore.
Second part tho, I had to cut in half cos I started to cough. Grrr !!!
Storytelling was allright tho.
Then Glod and I wandered around town
(different atmosphere in the party zone during the day, lots of people
still tho), I bought myself a ring, and tried to found one for him. No
such luck so far tho. He’s both too picky and too broadfingered.
headed back home round 6 pm, got some food, and watched some telly, as I
was beat again. I HATE colds ! Glod was feeling very blah tho, didn’t
feel like doing anything: no PC games, no TV, no Gentse Feesten, no
reading, no nothing 🙁
Later on, as I tucked him in, he told me that
it was because Thursday was getting closer, and then he has to leave
again 🙁 I know, sweety, I know 🙁
Being today… Got up round 10, Glod is still sleeping, I still have a headache because of the cold. No Paris, I’m afraid :-(((
to get an injection later on today, and then we’ll prolly meet up with
my mom and walk around the party zone again. See some street theatre or
Puppetbuskers. Yep yep 🙂
Still need to do homework tho:
storytelling again tomorrow, gonna tell the story of Beren and Luthien
from the Silmarillion, still need to read it tho. Weather doesn’t look
too great now.
Hmm, I’d better go shower, and get dressed, no ?
