Avast me hearties

It’s Friday! Hooray! Not a moment too soon. It’s a fairly busy weekend though, as one of G’s friends is coming over on Saturday and then on Sunday it’s my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary and they are having a party. Quite how my parents made it to 40 years is one of those things that will continue to perplex me. I’m not sure they are people to go to for marriage advice – and in fact my father has probably forgotten most of the last 40 years anyway, as he only seems to be aware of what is on television at any given moment.

Yesterday I ate some coconut ice and I think I had rather a sugar rush, which made G and I wandering around the supermarket much more amusing and then when we were driving home we had to take it in turns calling out animals (although G did try to sneak in a leprechaun and an elf). I think I should keep my sugar intake to a minimum in future.

I spoke to a couple of Ford garages yesterday about my smashed bumper and it is going to cost a minimum of £350 to get it repaired. I will have to break the news to my neighbour and find out what he wants to do. I bet he will wish he had been a bit more careful now.

Anyway, in order to avoid being the odd one out today you may find it helpful to know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. I expect you to telling people to walk the plank and shivering your timbers all day. Not convinced? Well it seems this will also be the perfect day to use all those pirate chat up lines you’d been practicing. Arrrrrrrr, as the pirates say.

"G and I wandering around the supermarket".... sounds like domestic bliss.

Just realized I meant to link to your blog when I said I found this on another blogger I read... I'm a bad blogger! :(

And a Appy talk like a pirate day to you!

TF - you will indeed be walking the plank. I go to the supermarket with G and there you are marrying us off. Although we did manage to get round without arguing so that is possibly a good sign.

titration - 'tis not a problem. I hadn't really thought you'd got it from my blog particularly.

Hope your day is going well.
