all's quiet on the eastern front

finally dragged my sorry self out of bed at around 11:30 this morning. a mate's band was playing at the local entertainment centre so i thought i'd go and watch and have a few quiet drinks.

the next thing i know a few others have turned up, and some of their friends, and some friends of friends, and we're drinking and singing and dancing and generally having a wonderful time. not the best way to recover from the flu, but it's good for the soul :-)

the rest of the weekend is going to be a lot quieter. i've only got a few weeks to go with my sister's car, so i'm making the most of it. alread been for a little 80 mile cruise this morning. nowhere special, just driving around enjoying the day.

the grots have taken off up to the gold coast to see their aunt get married. it will be an interesting trip to say the least. the two kids, their nan, her husband, in a volvo with a psychotic poodle, towing a caravan. i wonder if they'll cave in halfway through the trip, and ring up asking us to buy them plane tickets home.

so Jonah, if you see a poor kid from the south coast struggling in the surf, blame me for being a bad teacher and take pity on him :-)

but i reckon they'll have a lot of fun up there, especially when their cousins turn up and they can escape the volvo...
