Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

Sounds  like a fun party, Falconcy!

I'm getting ready to take a shower and do some marathon housecleaning before taking off to do a little shopping in SF and then pick up Jim in Oakland.  But I really feel like going back to bed.  lol  tongue

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

Well, 30 mins after the guests were due to arrive, nobody came. Partner called and got some lame excuse about somebody showing up unannounced. As they hadn't even taken the trouble to let us know they were delayed. How rude. My partner told them not to bother coming, she was livid.

At the end of the day they will lose out the most as they will end up having to pay premium to fix their frequent computer problems.

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

Just cleaned out the fire and built a new one for later tonight.
About to chuck (not literally) the hoover around the kitchen and lounge. Cant be bothered doing upstairs i'll do that tomorrow.

I have treated myself to a bottle of white wine and I can hear it calling to me from the fridge ( naughty wine) so the quicker i get this hoovering done the quicker i can chill with a glass  smile

Falconcy, sorry to hear that!  I hope you have a nice celebration together with your family.  My friends and family are usually much later than that, but to not show at all with no warning is just terrible.

Sorry for you and your partner, if any 'friends' did that to me they would never get into my house again evil

I hope that you have (had) a great evening together anyway.

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

Twas the party in honour of my 29th year of of experience at being 25 Frizz.

We're off up to the mountains today. Going to a friend who lives in Koilani - to the phonetically challenged, it's pronounced almost like Killarney though the background music is more sirtaki than ceilidh.
