Today marks the last day of October, and Halloween if you’re into that sort of stuff. I’m not and my son would like to be. This is how he came home from after school care the other day – my very own ghoul.
We’ve had a lovely weekend so far. I went out on Friday night with some friends to see another friend do her debut gig in a new band. They were great fun and I had great fun. I don’t go out often enough any more to see live music and I love it when I do.
My girlfriend stayed over and I cooked us bacon and eggs for breakfast on Saturday morning and she hung around to have a chat with me before leaving.
I spent some time cooking sausage rolls, washing dishes, washing towels and then sat down to watch the new Karate Kid movie with JJ – something he’s been wanting to do since it was on at the cinema. Halfway during the movie I stopped it to make dinner and scrape some wood together to light the fire. I know, it’s nearly summer here and I shouldn’t need to make heat inside the house at this time of year.
I slept in this morning, we did some farmer’s market shopping, I’ve done more washing and I’ve brushed some of Monty’s winter coat off so hopefully there’s less left lying around the house.
And I’ve got a chook ready to roast before I pick up The Surfer from his golf trip. He’ll probably be quite tired and quite over all that testosterone.
I’ll probably turn off the doorbell incase of stray trick and treaters – I know, not very Halloweeny of me but we just don’t do it here.
