I have moved – yes the era of the MSN space is at an end.  It has been a great experience but in the end has proved too limited in its features.  So, from now on you can find my blog herer:
Cheers – R 😉

New Blog…?

I am *toying* with the idea of moving my blog – to google (namely blogspot.com).  It will allow me to completely control the style and content and hopefully not crash my router ever time I run multiple uploads….

The most horrilbe thing ever!

Was eating dinner last night – pasta and meatballs (kind of Swedish meats Italian) – anyway, as I was eating I coughed accidentaly.  I then felt a nasty feeling in my sinus under my right cheek.  It fealt like something was up there, not in my nose but actually in my sinus.  After about 30 secs of blowing and coughing I finally got it out – a 4cm long bit of spaghetti.  It was horrible – I was nearly sick! 😦

Our cherry tree

Suddenly noticed yesterday that our Cherry tree had dropped nearly all of its blossom in about 3 hours.  The front garden looks pink!

The Sin of Jealousy!

Nick and Laura came for dinner on Sat night.  Nick (my step-brother) bought his new car……  Lets just say that this exact model and colour hung on my wall as a kid for years.  I am green with envy and am thinking of selling the cats to fund a similar purchase 😉

Embassy complete

Completed the Embassy on Sat morning with the addition of some shelves….K has now been using it regularly for yoga.  Also spent the day pulling sat-cable from the attic downstairs ready to run to the Embassy once the power cable arrives.

Missed my flight…

It’s Friday afternoon and I am booked on the penultimate RyanAir flight for the day back to England.  We have plenty of time for the usual 40 min journey from the office to the airport but even so we plan to leave about 3 hours before the flight is due to depart.  The next hour is spent waiting for the first taxi that is perpetually ‘just around the corner’.  We eventually ditch that idea and order new taxis that arrive in 10 mins.  Once in the taxi we see the probem – all of Milan is gridlocked.  Still with nearly 2 hours to do the 40 min journey we should be ok.  Unfirtunately in the end we arrive 5 mins after checkout has closed – and despite the fact we only have handluggage and they know of the traffic problems we are not allowed to check in 😦  Luckily there is another flight that day in 3 hours time and amazingly they have seats left over.  I eventually rolled up at home at 01:00 in the morning instead of 9ish as planned.  Whilst in the airport I took this photo of one of the many RyanAir posters dotted around the place….look for the placement of Luton and Stansted.  I hope their pilots are better geographically inclined!!!

Nice Bently

Continuing my car spotting whilst in Italy I saw this Bently outside ‘Bently Milano’ this morning.  The hotel is opposite the Bently garage and this is the first (and only) one I have seen!
