...and I'll wear handknit socks if I want to!
I was handed my gifts from the Fella while I was in bed this morning and I am going to wear my going away socks from Mel today. I am missing my friends/family in the UK and I think that I might feel that cut a little bit today, so these have been adopted as my birthday comfort socks.
Not that I am being badly treated here at all - my presents from the Fella were delivered in bed along with a steaming mug of black coffee (Monmouth Street Coffee Company beans...mmmm) and um, one of those pesky cinnamon buns from IKEA, duly warmed and buttered*.
I really needed both of these presents, so I am delighted - I requested one of them; the other he decided to get for me on his own. I am not sure what it says about me that all I wanted for my birthday was a plain, cozy dressing gown and what he twigged that I needed was a copy of MS Project!
My plans for today? Well once these have been delivered (for the next phase of West Shore Camp DIY projects), Vancouver is my oyster until the Fella leaves work and we get to fulfil the rest of my birthday requests, which were:
Please can we go:
- for a coffee in an interesting part of Vancouver that I haven't been to yet
- to Granville Island to pick up some nice, plump mussels and groceries
- home, make dinner and crack open a decent bottle of BC Chardonnay.
My needs are fairly simple?!
Note for Robynn: now you have a very good excuse for busting out of your trousers, my reasons are calorie related - plain and simple!
