Yes time to update.
I am currently on my Easter Holidays - I love school hoildays! best part of the year. I have done many things, sleep a lot, go on the slides at the tate (faster than you think they will be), have Naomi to stay (HURRAH!), go to Cornwall for a few days with the lovely Christina (Tina to her good friends) and now a short break at home - 1 day - before I visit all grandparents. visits that will hopefully contain lots of chocolate cake and probably contain saying the same thing over and over again but slightly louder each time (not much different from work then). Here are some of the hightlights from this Easter.
Naomi and I went to a tea shop in Kew. A spcicfic teashop that was in her book of tip top tea shops so we could tick it off (her aim is to go to all of them), the following scene occured.
We walk into the tea shop which shuts at 1pm according to the opening times, it is 12pm. The tables are empty but there are some people sitting down enjoying afternoon tea. We sit at a table. Nothing happens.
Me: Are we supposed to order at the counter?
Naomi: I'll go and check
A while later she comes back
Naomi: Apparently someone will be over in a min.
We Wait. After a few mins a substancially sized lady with a frown on her face comes over.
Lady: We shut at 12.30
Naomi: Your card syay you are open till 1
Lady: NO we shut at 1pm.
Naomi and I: OK
Lady: What do you want?
Me: Do you have any menus?
Silence. Bemused looks exchanged between Naomi and I.
Me: Can I have a coke?
Lady: (distainfull look at me) Yes
Naomi: I'll have a pot of tea and do you have any pastries?
Lady (with incredulous air that we are actually ordering despite the fact that they close in 25 mins) We have sausage rolls.
Naomi: I'll have a maid of honour
Me: Can I have a scone with jam and cream?
Lady stalks off to get order
It was very amusing. And the cakes were lovely as well. We were the lucky ones, there was a couple that came in 5 mins after us who were turned away. Obviously they are keen to do well.
Went and saw Anna and Kenny for a brief visit which involved very long conversations about neighbours - obviously Christina being AUstralian was able to give a good insight into it. We also watched a lot of the Neighbours defining moments DVD - Bliss!
I can get it down to these few brief observations:
Susan is gay
Her arms are covered in tatooes - you never see her wear short sleeves
Bring back Clive
Madge should win the award for the most drawn out death scene - a whole episode
It's Austrila's biggest export
Home and Away is rubbish.
Anyway enough waffle (or wahfle as Grandma would say).
Anyone noticed how the seats on the northern line are decorated with pictures of one of the Mario brothers? (the one with a moustache).
