Actually, he got out of the sink after a couple of minutes, so I could perform my morning ablutions after all.
My birthday has been hot (where's the unseasonal rain when you need it?), somewhat work-filled but generally not too bad considering how much dawdling I did. This I document to reassure my brother, whose SMS to me this morning consisted of birthday greeings followed by "Hope the whole day isn't spent doing work."
My dad's SMS included a line to say, "Make the world a better place to live in" --- both sweet and guilt-inducing at the same time. I need to dust off certain ideas and get cracking on them.
My mother's SMS asked me what my plans were. To wit:
- I planned to back up my hard drive --- done.
- I planned to do a spot of work --- done.
- I planned to mix various leftovers into a chicken salad for lunch --- done.
- I didn't plan to finish the Leonidas chocolates oiseauxbleu gave me for Xmas, but there were only two left and I did.
