Try It, You'll Like It / Party Re-cap
I have just discovered - in "Urban Peasant" fashion - that Nairn's Stem Ginger Oat Biscuits (while excellent just on their own) are even better when you put a slice of provolone on top. Mmmm, so good. This came about experimentally today after thinking of a time when Bunny told me to try some cheddar on a Digestive Biscuit. Also good, though - this was a touch more Becky style - as full of flavor in both the cheese and biscuit department, and the result - a party in my mouth. Ah, James Barber would be proud.
Anyway - had an excellent tea party yesterday at my good friend Angelique's house. It was a "going away tea". We posted it on facebook, I invited my 600 friends (much to Angeliques shock and horror) - haha. About 17 people confirmed they would definitely come, and about 10 people - including myself, Angelique and Rick (the hosts) and my parents showed up. (most of whom had not confirmed) That turned out about how I thought. Nobody ever follows through with their commitment to show up for these things. However - it turned out fantastic!!! Some of my MOST favorite people on the planet turned up - including Dale - who stayed all day - I'm honored to say. One HUGE surprise was my friend from High School - Jakub showed up. I haven't seen him in 15 years!!! It was so great to see him. Also a collection of some of my most favorite peeps. Thanks so much for showing up and seeing me off my friends. I had 6 cups of tea whilst sitting there - all different kinds, and Angelique made a lovely assortment of cookies - had my first Christmas Shortbread yesterday. Sorry to say - friends - I don't have any time for 1:1 goodbyes, so - you'll have to visit me in Scotland if you want to see me again. That's great though - come and visit - it will be fun. Yeah - so things are coming along, and I'm getting more and more excited about the move. I guess I should look into getting some furniture. I may have a line on a bed - waiting to hear back from my friend on that one. I guess though - it will take me a little while to get all the little knick knacks sorted that makes up a home. As of today - there's 16 sleeps. I really need to get on with some of my projects that I've been holding on to. Can't do them after the move. Today - I will be scanning pictures - and later - doing a little Yoga. (Must try to burn off yesterday's calories) I also went to Kaly and Andy's Crepe party last night, and had an excellent girly gab session with Kaly, Birdie and Candia. Good times. Kaly's having a baby - so we were talking about that and all it entails; all that I have to look forward to - some day. Gosh - some things - I'm really going to miss, but it will be all worth it as I move forward and make new memories. It's time to do so.
15 YEARS!!!! Reunited. Thanks for the surprise visit Jakub.
Me and Valena - I'll miss you - but you need to come and visit.
Me and my Brother from another Mother - Logan - who is going to visit and celebrate Hogmanay next year.
The host and hostess of the tea party - Angelique and Rick - I'll miss you lots my friends - thanks again for the great send-off.
Some of the best girls ever - Kaly, Birdie, Me and Candia.
