When you’re the only sane person around…

 You know those days on RL when you swear you’re surrounded by idiots?

People say and do the least logical things imaginable, and you feel fortunate to be the only one who hasn’t taken any crazy pills.

Then again, if you’re in the minority, doesn’t it mean that they are right and it’s you who’s wrong?

Anyway, I am counting down my days before my summer holidays start.

As of the 29th of June I have 2 whole months of absolute bliss.

No work or college, with all reports written, exam taken and passed.

Believe me, before that moment comes, I shall, no doubt, have to go through the fire.

That’s the thing about nice events in your life.

You end up paying for them, one way or another.

I like to think of it as life balancing itself out.

I have a feeling I’ll have to go through some tough stuff before I can sit down in front of my fireplace, with a nice cup of tea, my pups by my side, and watch N&S.

It’ll be worth it!

I’m off to the countryside for a longish weekend.

Think Dibley Village.

It’s nothing like it, of course, but it’s just as special to me.

No sexy neighbor, with a love of books, moving in next door, though.

My neighbor is less this:

And more like this:

There’s a retired couple living next door.

The man is a tad misogynistic, and his poor wife can do nothing right, which he points out on a regular basis.

 I literally punch the air and think: ‘You go Lady, good on you” every time she stands up to him!

We call him Bilbo Baggins, that’s what he looks like. Unfortunately, he chooses to walk around sans T-shirt.

Yet another reason I wish it was Harry living next door.

When he sneezes, he does it so loudly, he scares all the poor farm animals in a radius of a dozen kilometres.

It’s a wonder hens lay any eggs when he’s about!

For the past few years Bilbo been conducting some loud, and very annoying, DIY project.

What it is, no one knows.

I’m surprised he hasn’t erected the Taj Mahal on his property by now.


Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. You’re not alone when you think you’re the only sane person around or when you wish you had Harry living next door… but then, I’m not sure if you would be so ‘sane’ any more… lol
    Well, anyway… I wish you a wonderful weekend too!!!

    • So true, Luciana! I’m a slob at my summerhouse. Running a comb through my hair and brushing my teeth is about as much grooming as I can muster up 🙂 It’s tracksuit bottoms and t-shirts all the way here! And wellington boots. If Harry lived next door, I’d feel compelled to wear make-up. Maybe it’s for the best!

  2. I really liked this post. I am so happy you’ll have the summer to “defrag”, before you start all over again. I hope it brings a refreshed,, relaxed, renewed you back to the drawing board. Follow your heart on this break. I’ve been out of school for 2 weeks (teacher), and I’m just getting my bearings. I love your work, and appreciate the way you put your heart into it. I don’t miss a day! Take care. Start your “Summer Just for Me” list, and be sure to check off each one. Plug in lots of pampering for you, even if it is hot tea with a new book and no interruptions (my personal favorite). You have earned it! 🙂

    • Thanks Kate! I’m actually both a teacher and a student, so June tends to get a bit hectic over here. My “Summer Just for Me” actually means a stack of DVD’s I don’t have the time or energy to watch, and a bunch of books that serve no purpose than to relax and entertain! Started re-watching Spooks series 7 yesterdat. Man, that Lucas is stick thin. The first time I watched it I was focused on: Yupeeee, there’s Richard! This time I watched it and really wanted to just plump that man up!
      Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

  3. Biedactwo!..ale nic się nie przejmuj…..ja mam gorzej…bo mój przystojny sasiad…ogląda sie za moją14-letnią córką a nie za mną. 🙂

  4. To skubaniec! Mam teorię odnośnie facetów którzy gustują w tak młodych dziewczynach. To po prostu fundamentalny lęk przed kobietami! Noś pastucha i po dyndałach go prądem popieść jak za bardzo będzie się przyglądał! 🙂
