Footnote To Yesterday

So, anyway. My very short-lived flatmate is gone and calm descends. We spent much of yesterday avoiding each other, and she left having said about 5 words to me all day. See ya! Buh bye.

Eh, it's ok. Chalk that one up to experience.

It was grey and rainy yesterday, and I was hanging around home to get the keys from her when she left, so as it turns out I had a quiet (non-spending) day yesterday. Sourdough toast, cups of tea, a couple of 1930s and 50s screwball comedies on DVD and lots of knitting didn't make for too bad a day after all.

On the subject of knitting, remember the 'berries & chocolate' scarf? It's nearing the desired length, so that should be finished this weekend. Better to be to long than too short - is my motto in life. I like generous length. (Anyone?) I've only been knitting sporadically, maybe one night a week, so it has taken quiet a while! I'll post a pic once it's off the needles.

Later this morning I'm heading out to the museums with James. It's another rainy day today, and probably just the ticket for a day of indoor sightseeing.

Before I go I just wanted to say thanks for the messages of support in the comments yesterday! Catch you later.

You will have better luck with the next flatmate, a Gemini a few years older than you. You will get along great!

Thanks for the comments boys!

Kenyo, a gemini huh? Can I charge double rent?

I enjoy your rants. I've been there with a roomate but fortunately it was in school and I didn't have to pay any more when he moved out.

He however, was a prick of the first water. He stayed long enough to make me miserable (my favorite was the 4 page letter he wrote me about what a terrible person I am).

The Other Andrew said...

Ouch! Four pages writ large in crayon, perhaps? My take on it would be, you have a crayon, I have The Internet, guess who wins?

Michael Guy said...

This is so odd: I saw something this weekend that was 'nearing the desired length.'

Go figure.

I'm just catching up with blogs and I'm so sorry to read that it didn't work out with the flatmate. Bah! People are such bastards sometimes. Glad you're getting up and over and all that.
