It's been an interesting weekend (Holland had a bank holiday so it was back to work this morning).
We were supposed to be shoe shopping (using a voucher that Mrs Stace got with a pair of shoes she brought a few weeks ago). That never happened as what I thought was the end date for the voucher was in fact the start date. Something to look forward to next week.
Instead we went office shopping to make working from home more comfortable for Mrs Stace. One monitor, wireless keyboard / mouse combo and very nice office chair later she has an office that is nicer than where she works.
I have to ask though. Has anyone ever seen the mythical creature that is believed to have the special power of cuying what they need from Ikea? We went in for a chair and left with a chair, two ergonomic pillows with covers, three oven dishes and a teapot.
Sunday was cleaning day. Woohoo (but we have a nice living room again).
Yesterday we went to a castle for the day, it was my father in laws birthday and so we were treating. Sun, warmth (too much really, but better than too cold) and the whole family together was nice. Nice joke with my sister in law as well. She was discussing why there is a queue outside the ladies, but not them men. After a long discussion she asked her husband 'do you have any idea of the layers under a womans outfit?' 'Yes' I replied sheepishly. She cracked up.
Then called my folks again last night. For the first time since speaking to my dad in the new year we had a discussion about how I was doing, going into detail. It was really nice to be able to open up to him - and nice to know that he can open up back.
