Another Quiet Tuesday Night

Hmmm, let me cast my mind back and try to remember what we got up to last night. We skipped gym because we had a "late" work day (that's a normal work day to the rest of you ;) ) and then popped round to good old faithful Woolies for some dinner supplies - we can't eat take-out all the time ;)

After the shop, we headed over to Varen's to cook up a storm. Well, to be more precise, he cooked up a storm of Calamari, Veggies and potato bake while I bathed, read my book and caught up with my folks on the phone :) Such a sweetie.

Luckily we still managed to find time for one episode of Supernatural before bed :)

Oh, and I forgot to mention ... I hate trucks. I wish South Africa would invent an alternative to these behemoth vehicles invading every lane on our roads, because they are certainly not polite about the 8 car-lengths that they take up (and expect you to leave open for them in peak-traffic so that they can change lanes like a taxi-driver!)

And another thing ... I have something brewing in the back of my mind. I don't want to mention anything just yet, but it's there and I'm getting my hopes up :) It is a very exciting time for me, assuming I get the go-ahead from the necessary parties. But until I know it's a certainty, I'll be keeping it to myself :) Eeep, could everyone please keep their fingers crossed!

Nothing like relaxing while the significant other does the cooking hey... :)

And totally agreed on trucks. Especially on The Ou Kaapse Weg pass into Fish Hoek. They can hold you at 20km/h on that road for 10km. It's so frustrating!

Oh you guys know nothing about traffic until you have to drive in central London. Absolute fucking nightmare and a trip that usually takes about 20 minutes can take 2 hours!!!!

@richard - yup, nothing like it ;)
Oooh, I remember that from when I lived in CT ... or even on Boyes Drive is bad enough with that one lane & nowhere to over-take the entire way.

@missm - yup, that's part of the illusion I'm hanging onto to remove my "grass-is-greener" syndrome ;) As much as I hate traffic here, I'm not sure I could manage spending 2 hours switching between tubes & buses each morning just to get to work! Give me the chaos I already know any day.
