Life in Poland

No funerals, no vomit hands

We got a chance to spend the weekend together. No funerals.

Our weekend always starts the same with a drive from the city to the village. Occasionally we spot a deer or fox or wild pig on the way, but this weekend we spotted something much less rare – the overturned bike. When we spot a bike overturned on a dark and winding road, we of course stop to look for its owner. That’s our do-goodery policy. This time it really looked like someone might have been hit by a car based on the position of the bike. Fortunately it turned out to be another case of falling drunk into a ditch. Based on previous experience with vomit hands, we decided not to make physical contact with that fellow. We called in backup from the nearby shop – some strong, young men who recognized our description of the poor fellow. He was dragged out of the ditch and returned home safely. It happens so often that I don’t much feel like patting myself on the back anymore.

Saturday we went to a new, little juice bar called Malinea where we drank yummy fruit shakes and received a little present of fruit preserves. The kids had waffles with whipped cream – homemade whipped cream, not from the spray can.

I also made a practice cake for Lizzie’s birthday party. She asked for a SpongeBob cake, and I wasn’t sure if I could make something that resembled SpongeBob. This is my first attempt. Hopefully, it’ll come out a little better on party day.

Here’s my first attempt at rainbow gellies. Rosie’s birthday has passed, but her party is next weekend. We’ve got one little Celiac guest, and I wanted to make something special just for her to eat. I hope she likes gellies.

The rest of the weekend I spent doing a boring translation about chemicals. I’ve still got 5 pages to go. It’s so hard to sit at the computer when the sun is shining. I think I’ll eat the last of the gellies.

    Wanna swap? My weekend is spent writing (in English) the surgery's library policy, catalogue, electronic resource list, educational and employment contract, welcome pack and induction timetable for the accreditation inspection (as a training practice) on 29/04.Yesterday I spent all the little brakes in garden, planting, tidying up, putting washing on and taking it off, taking rubbish to the recycling centre, etc. Today is cold and rainy again, so no more excuses, bleh!

    I definitely don't want to swap. I'm still working on that safety sheet, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. My garden looks like crap though 😉

    Oh, come on! Your SpongeBob cake is perfect. And drunk rider thrown me off balance a little. Sigh.
