"Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get, but if you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you...amazing things will happen" --Conan O'Brien
...just booked a three day trip to Barcelona three weeks from now. Flight, hotel, everything taken care of. I only see my mum about once a year so we decided to repeat our mother-daughter trip to London from last year and try Barcelona this year. The arrangement is that I plan and organize everything and do all the translating and she invited me to all the meals and museum tickets, etc. That calls for research into a classy Catalan fish restaurant. I've been there before several times, but might contact a few local friends nevertheless for insider tips.
The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Neither love without knowledge, nor knowledge without love can produce a good life. - Bertrand Russell A herring's blog Johari / Nohari
Kat made me happy today with her posting the baby clip, although Kat brings a little light to the forum any time she visits and Gloriana for giving me a mention in one of the fluffy/popularity threads in which I generally dont get a look in, its nice to be noticed.
I went for lunch with a good bud who'll be leaving to live halfway around the world shortly, it was good but I had a terrible headache and had to sleep and wound up stressed thinking about what my workplace will be like with one less of the great people who make it manageable around.
Hubby sent me a cute little bouquet of flowers to cheer me up. I've been a weepy mess the last couple of days. It's even got a cute little butterfly in the arrangement... Makes me think of the baby's room.
