Nicholas finally arrived back at 7:30 yesterday evening. Apparently the battery on his mobile died en route to Croatia.
He was shattered after a week of very little sleep and 33 hours on a coach - just about managed to stay awake for the Arsenal match.
I did manage to get some sense out of him:
The music festival was brilliant and Croatia is beautiful.
Nicest country travelled through - Switzerland (despite getting lost in the Alps!).
Most impressive duty free - Luxembourg.
Worst country - Italy (due to a four hour hold up at the border while sniffer dogs etc. did their job!).
He's decided to wait until Saturday to travel to Uni. Gives him time to recover and me time to do his washing!
As for me this has been a mixed week.
Managed to break two teeth last Saturday - not in pain as such, just very uncomfortable and diff. to eat. My dentist is of course on holiday this week and the emergency dentist prodded and poked, took X-rays, then decided he wasn't going to do anything. Gave me a letter for my dentist and told me to make an appt. for next week. What a waste of a Monday morning!!
Rest of Monday and all day Tuesday was spent on the ironing mountain - it is no more! Took me that long as I had to keep having rests - my arms and shoulders were not amused at all this activity.
Max has had an ear infection (silly dog keeps poking his head into hedges - you'd think he'd learn!). He is also now officially on a diet (revolting dried food) so his exercise has been upped - don't know what it's doing for him but it's wearing me out!
Lots of football (good results) and cricket (less said the better about England but well done to Durham on retaining the Championship) have been watched with more to come as Man Utd are on T.V. on Sunday and next Weds. Also have an Indy Car race this w/end (that will keep OH happy!).
Will now have to venture to Waitrose as DS has cleaned us out of fruit juice and milk.
No time (or energy) for crafting I'm afraid - hope after this weekend things will settle down.
I have some special cards to make before I can start scrapping.
Watch this space!
