I'm feeling quite subdued this morning. I think it's a combination of the weather and the day I had yesterday.

The rest of the weekend was really good tho. On Friday evening I had a wonderful time. @Arkwife, @Tamara0h, @Rubyletters and @jackson_files came over. I couldn't believe how long it's been since we last got together. I made a fire and gluhwein. Everyone brought a pot of soup (except @TamaraOh who brought delish & decadent lindt chocolate mousse for dessert).

We drank and ate and sat outside next to the fire catching up. It was lovely.

Afterwards, The Trucker came over. On Saturday morning we woke up quite late, but didn't have much that needed doing. We headed off to Doppio for breakfast and then did a little shopping admin and then headed home. I spent the afternoon looking more closely at how to reshuffle our Vietnam itinerary so we could do everything in the time we have (Thai Air only flys to & from Joburg on certain days of the week). The Trucker lazed on the couch. We watched some series and then it was time to head off to @Toxic_Mouse's to watch the rugby. Then we popped home briefly for some dinner and to get changed before heading to Topo Gigio in Greenside for @nadia_ass's birthday celebrations. We didn't stay too long, but long enough to have quite a few of her delish cupcakes!

We were going to head to RR after, but we were a bit tired and The Trucker had 2 cricket games on Sunday.

Sunday was weird. We were in funny moods. You know the sort: You get insecure and need them near and reassuring and that sends them running and needing space. Worst Catch-22 ever. Anyway, I think it is all okay now. He came over for dinner, we had a chat and then ate the most delish Butter Chicken that I made in my slow cooker. Yesterday was not a great day. And I hate feeling like I wasted a weekend day being miserable and curled up in bed ... But I did get out and do some retail therapy (new boots!), and I made yummy food, so it wasn't a total waste of a day).
