Did not sleep well last night did too much thinking, about Spike every time I heard him moving around with difficulty.
But also thought about nice things like talking to Richie about our next party, after the party on September 17, he had suggested we have one on the 19 December, our 9 wedding anniversary.
Think it is a great idea, we still have 9 bottles of proseccio from September, plenty enough for December.
Will ask the same people to join us again this time, be good fun for me organising the party, getting everyone to bring something delicious to share.
September was great fun everyone enjoyed themselves enormously; it was nice to have a group of friends here for a change.
Years ago I used to organise a get together of a group of friends every Saturday, everyone brought something to eat and drink and we had a pleasant time together.
Generally I would make a big lasagne or quiches and rely on other people bringing salads, bread and deserts and wine or beer.
When I lived in Reading, England we always had such bring a plate parties, a few of us would also eat together every week, always at a different house so everyone took a turn cooking.
Additionally I usually had a few friends over for dinner once a week, really missed all of that when I was here first, and so decided to start the ‘tradition’ here.
That was also when I was the chef at a vegetarian café, enjoyed the job very much, loved thinking up the new menus, a new dish of the day, soup and salad daily.
Miss being able to cook these days, it has been a long time since I cooked anything; the last thing was a curry in early 2006 and scrambled eggs in early 2007.
Being disabled has robbed me of so much in the last 5 years, feel that I need to do everything possible to have as much fun as I can while I can.
