Cousin Lara’s rather nutty friend, Jolene’s husband works away and she mentioned one day that he’d called and when they had finished chatting she did a happy dance. “Oh yay, oh wow! Oh yay, oh wow!” Suddenly we are all doing it…
Dad is coming home on Thursday morning at 08:40 which means I have to get up earlier than my body has become accustomed to of late, but I suppose it will be good practice considering that we will be hitting the road at 05:00 on Saturday morning.
We got our cruise tickets and forex today. My cabin number is 9196 and my parents, Aunty Carol and Uncle Barry are in 8288. I have US $ 171 spending money for my cruise 🙂 Not bad for someone who is gainfully unemployed. I can hardly wait for Monday so I can soak up the sunshine and drink cocktails on a floating five star hotel. I have finally finished Don’t Blink, but I will have another James Patterson book to keep me occupied on holiday – this time one of his Women’s Murder Club ones, probably 9th Judgement which Elizabeth gave me for my birthday last September.
And, one more “happy-dance-worthy” bit of news:
I am going to colour my hair tomorrow afternoon – nothing radical, just a shade or two darker than my natural colour, after I have taken Dad’s car to the car wash for a nice spit ‘n polish.
