31/10/2013 - Spooky Day!

Happy Spooky Day! Yeah, I'm a grinch. I don't do Hallowe'en. Mostly because it's scary round these parts and I don't fancy the tricks that the local scalls might pull if you don't give them enough chocolate.

Anyway, I procrastinated going to work this morning because quite frankly I don't really want another day like the two I have had so far this week. Maia gladly helped me out by lying down on the back of my legs while I was laying across the bed.

Normally first thing in the morning she is trying to convince you that she's never been fed before. This morning she was a bottom-cuddler!

Yes, that's my derriere! The zoom on the camera isn't doing me any favours...

I managed to survive work, which is a relief. Grit my teeth and get on with it.

Remember yesterday's artistic exclamation on the billboard. Well, I think the Myres family aren't very popular round these parts...

Oh Phil, what have you done?!

Now their Mick's doing it as well. Must be serious.

Liverpool: the only place that considers 'eee' a word. Exactly how you'd expect it to sound. An expression of disgust.

I was able to relax again this evening. We were going to go into town but due to Paul feeling a bit poorly, we held off. Stupid me forgot that the reason that we were going to go out was that we were hiding from trick or treaters!

I settled myself upstairs (by dim lamplight) and tucked into my new read:

Basically a book to wrap up (almost) all the character arcs in the Sookie Stackhouse / True Blood books.

I got through it in about an hour. Some stories were quite long and some were rather short. There were births, deaths and a couple of 'see you laters' which made me smile! I'm going to miss that universe!

Paul was late getting home, so we had a late ish dinner.

We only had one trick or treater but as it was after 8:30pm, we ignored them. Seriously, that's too late for cute kids to come round. More like teenagers begging and might smash you up unless you give them cash. No thank you.
