A Serious Six Months

So Varen, with a giant grin on his face, came past my office to pick me up for lunch yesterday in The New Car. It really is lovely ... and boy does it drive. Accelerating feels a bit like being in a rocket where you get thrust from behind and go whooshing forward. Let's hope he won't need to start a new savings account for the traffic fines! Will hopefully post some pics soon, but I forgot to take any last night. Maybe Varen will oblige and send me a few sometime today :)

10:41am Update: He sent thru this shot of the new car ... I promise to take a few more this weekend!

He is at home now enjoying (?) his final day of freedom. He decided to start his new contract a week early. Shooo, it's been quite a hectic past 6 months for the two of us: 1) my new car 2) his new house 3) moving in together (more on that later) 4) his new car 5) his new job 6) my new job. Eep.

When I got home from work (and he was still smiling!), we headed over to Loulou's to collect the rest of my "little stuff". All that's left now is my bed and chest of drawers (fingers crossed that Cash Converters will take 'em!) and two tables. Varen has arranged with his brother to move all that this afternoon. And the I will be Officially Moved.

Last night we went for dinner at Pomodoro in Morningside with JofH and YogaCherryl. It was a lovely evening although the service was dismal to start with, it did improve. And my food was mixed. My Melanzane starter was divine, one of the best I've eaten! But my main, Prawn Ravioli was not that flavourful ... next time I'd stick with an old faithful like the Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli instead. Although the rest of the table seemed to really enjoy their mains :)
