February is over and done with… today is the last day- leap year day. And yesterday was hectic- I am working my cute li’l backside (not) off at work and enjoying it too… and then all of a sudden at lunch time I felt like I was getting a cold- stiff neck, sore ears, scratchy throat. Damn! I have too much to do this weekend to get sick now…
And yesterday was my Granny Darling’s 83rd birthday! I so badly wanted to go and have coffee with her after work, but I was afraid to go near her with my newly acquired cold! She’s doing REALLY well bunnies- she is now home with a “nurse” from 7 to 7 who helps her dress and get in and out of bed and such. She also cooks lunch and such so my granny can take it easy.
Then last night, The Glugster took me out to dinner. Yes bunnies- we had a date- and we went to Cape Town Fish Market for sushi!
We sat at the conveyor-belt table thingy where the chefs are in the middle and you can watch as they prepare the dishes. This time I tried a little more of everything- except the tuna- and I just love the salmon! I took pictures of course, and I watched intently as the chef prepared each dish. Its unbelievable what they manage to achieve with one mother trucker size knife!!!
And on the arachnid front (I think most of you know how I love spiders), on the weekend I found a brown widow in the guest loo* at Glugs’ place. She was living behind the maid’s clothing that is hung up behind the door, and she’d been there long enough to shed at least once. She was just gawjiss– but I asked Damien to take her outside into the garden so she wouldn’t get squished should the maid spot her. And of course I didn’t want her to get bitten either. So Damien duly took her out into the garden and hung the clothing back up in the loo. In the week Glugs said he thought he’d seen her again- the widow that is- outside his front door. I didn’t see her when I got there on Wednesday night though. Then last night Glugs announce that she was back, in the guest loo, behind the clothes! Is that not awesome! I’ve never seen a spider do that- move back to where she was after being taken outside! And there’s a wolf spider living in Glugs’ living room. He has wooden floors and the one day we were going shopping or something and as he put his shoe on she appeared next to his shoe. We’d already known she was there so we keep an eye out for her. Glugs stopped putting his shoe on and slowly pulled it back so we could see her properly. As I knelt down to see her better she tried to make a break for her hidey hole in the corner- and she was slipping on the wooden tiles like cats and dogs do! I hosed myself- I never imagined a spider could also slip on the floor! OOH- and I found a spitting spider in Glugs’ bathroom the night before last! They’re small, but with a very distinctive shape and colouring. SO pretty!
* ‘coz naturally its easier to use the guest loo than to schlepp upstairs!
