Good Morning INs

How is everyone? Nice weekend?

 We had a really nice weekend, then on the way to work this morning our car's radiator broke & it suddenly started to overheat. 3 1/2 hours later after a checkup & tow we finally got into work after going home to get my car *sigh* how annoying

On a positive note - today is the last day of winter YAY!

Re: Good Morning INs

  • Morning! We had a really fun weekend :-) We bought a big screen TV on Friday, and watched a great movie with some friends (AttaKat) on Saturday!

    Yesterday, we finally got to take the test for our Qatari driver's license, so we are now official :-) And our residency visas have gone through! YAY! 

    I had to wait up all night last night for the TV delivery. They showed up at 12:30 AM. Seriously. I am never ordering anything during Ramadan again! 

    Mo, sorry to hear about your car problems. I hate that! Hope the car gets fixed soon!

  • Oooh sorry about your car, that stinks! Had a pretty good weekend, went to a bocce ball tournement and bbq on Saturday and Gabby ran around and got in the middle of it.  Sunday Gabby and I went to a birthday party for a Malawian boy, and it was non-stop dancing.  Gabby was shaking her booty, and I took some great video and photos.  Sunday night we had some friends over and DH made some delicious pesto pizza and homemade chocolate chocolate chip ice cream- yum!  I better go to the gym and work it off today :)
  • Good morning ladies!

    Mo, that sux!  At least it was a 'small' problem and nothing major and super expensive to fix.  And yay for the last day of winter!  I assume then that the seasons don't follow the same as the northern hemisphere then since Autumn doesn't start here until mid-September?

    It's Bank holiday here today, yay!  Although as usual it's crappy out haha.  Dh is working from home today (triple pay, woo hoo!) and Leo and I are just chillin'.  I haven't been feeling good for a few days now so I don't know if we'll do much today.  Over the weekend though we went and visited Arundel Castle.  SO cool!

  • Monique that stinks about your car.

     It feels like fall here, as it is quite chilly right now.  I'm getting back into my normal routine since vacation is over.  Happy Monday ladies.

  • Hooray for spring!

     

    As for me... got my new craftroom furniture installed, and have cleverly avoided any real work this morning. Rockin!

  • Morning! The sun is out, but it?s a bit  chilly.  Definitely can tell that fall is  on it?s way in. I?m hoping to make a trip to Ikea later today to see if they can fix a  bill for me so I can use it for tax purposes and then browse a bit.

  • Good morning! Our weekend... hmm...

    Monique, SAME thing happened to us. We were arriving back in Italy from states and my temperature hand was through the roof. We made it home and took car to shop, $800 bucks later it was fixed.

  • Good morning all.  I had a great day yesterday...played in a co-ed 7-a-side cricket tournament.  One idiot guy, who wasn't into the spirit of the thing (though he should have been as he's one of the men's coaches) decided to bowl the balls at women at his normal (and seriously fast) speed.  And I didn't get OUT!!!  I actually hit his balls three times!  Woo hoo!  Jack @ss.

    Mo...sorry to hear about your car.

  • Hello hello! We had a nice weekend here.  Saturday was the Italian/British wedding and it was wonderful.  Yesterday we mostly just relaxed, took a wander to the bookstore and then had our fantasy football league draft.  It was a mess. Just glad to have some delicious coffee this morning!
  • Hello,

    I am heading to bed soon, had a pretty lazy day here today, the weather went from summer temps all last week back to winter temps today so that was a bummer.

    Hope you all have a great day.
