Yup, another week just FLEW by.
I’ve been looking up on options for my aquarium. I’m a geek like that. I’m heading to the pet store tonight to buy a half-dozen Zebra Danios. These are the first of 4 types I plan to include (3 have already been chosen), and the most appropriate for cycling a fish tank.
This weekend Wife and I went to London for my niece’s 3rd birthday. We headed over on Saturday afternoon, did a bit of shopping, then spent the evening with a couple of friends that moved there from Toronto. Great dinner, great wine, great conversation. Sunday morning we headed over to the in-laws’ house for the party. Again, it was another fun day. I got to see my niece for a while, and hold my brand-new nephew.
Wife and I had an interesting conversation on the way home, about “relationship status.” Specifically that these 2 kids will NEVER remember a life without me. Wife’s cousin’s children might remember me not being there, they were very young when I joined the picture. And obviously my grownup in-laws remember Life Before Dickeybird, but for these kids I’m a fully qualified member of the clan.
While shopping in London, I also picked up a “Teach Yourself French” CD course. I’ll need a bit of fluency when I head to the Caribbean in February, and it certainly can’t hurt my resume to re-learn that language forced on me in grade school and ignored/forgotten for 20 years.
