Was at a conference, which has cost more work to pile up and less of it to be able to be done. It was in Spain, but I spent so much time working, I've a better suntan for sitting in the Innenhof of our apartment area on a slightly overcast Saturday.

On the plus side, I did manage to eat a metric fuckload of fried anchovies.

The weekend was spent in minor domesticity on Saturday, identifying crap we do not want (mostly Christmas presents) to be traded away and doing a lightning swoop on Ikea in the last hour before closing to get more Billy. Also threw out the dead herbs, and bought some lavender plants.

Sunday was bike day, and a number of firsts. First breaking the 25km mark in distance. First breaking an average speed of 20kph (for the first bit only, and yes I am slow). First mostly on grit and through woods, ducking and weaving to not get hit in the face by trees. First near-miss accident (near the end, somewhat tired, I lost concentration while scratching an itch on my face and almost pedalled into the side of a parked van). First cycle-with-beer, the last 10 mins home to beat the rain, having devoured the reward of cordon bleu and an ice cold beer.

But I don't hate anyone enough to give them a manicure set.

Embarassing, as I really need nicer looking toes. Also, they're too big for me.

whoever loved you enough to give it to you would appreciate it.
