Andorra Settle

I had a dream last night that I was killed, strangled in fact, by a terrorist. I woke up this morning and it was snowing. Coincedence? You decide...

Either way it seems to be settling, so hopefully we can go tobogganing later. At the moment the snow is interfering with the TV reception. This seems like a pretty heavy price to pay for a little bit of extreme weather. If it's a choice between Going Outdoors or Watching TV, I know which one I'd rather sit around and do.

Andorra Infection

It has been a pretty lackluster couple of days - Roz and I have not really done anything fun for a while. I don't think I'm bored of the view yet, but I would like it to stop raining.

On Wednesday Roz felt very ill and was very sick on a very large number of occasions. So we went to the hospital and they gave her glucose through a tube and kept her in a bed for about six hours. I sat in a chair next to the bed, and also slept on the floor for a bit. It costs money to go to the hospital here. Quite a lot of money. Maybe that is something we will have to get used to. Roz is mainly better now, in case you were fretting.

I'm really slowly working on an RAS thing, probably an EP or something. I have done about two songs, but I think there will be five or six or seven. It sounds kind of echo-y but also cluttered. In a good way hopefully. It's going quite naturally. Anyway I will try and finish it before we leave but along with Bumblebees stuff I will probably start feeling unnecessarily stressed in about.....three hours. And I have started about twelve "EPs" before and always seem to delete them in a fitful click blizzard. It's an ego thing, probably. I want to be better than I am.

We have just finished watching Midsomer Murders. I had never seen it before, but I really liked it. That is my recommendation for today. Either that or watch lots of long-range swerving goals on YouTube. Or both.

Andorra Staggered

Our friends have gradually departed, and now it is just Roz and I in the house. Robin left on the 9th, Daisy and Lindsay on the 10th, and Bert left yesterday. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves. We didn't get to do a huge amount of Fun Things, but it was still a Fun Holiday I think. We drank quite a lot, sometimes.

I don't know what we're going to do with the next couple of weeks. The only plan I have is to 'not do nothing'. That is a vague itinerary I can imagine modifying to involve watching Neighbours every day. Don't let me let this happen.

Andorra Parched

I have really dry lips. I yawned today and they started bleeding. It is pretty hot here so I suppose that explains it, although no-one else has it really. Maybe Bert a little bit.

Andorra is going pretty well so far. It is relaxing or strenuous, depending on whether you are walking up a hill or not. There are loads of hills. So far we have not got any Bumblebee things done really, after walking the dog twice and feeing ourselves and the animals, there is less time than you would probably imagine. We do still plan on making an EP or mini-album or something along those lines, but it is quite hard to be motivated here.

I think this picture is pretty cool, but we have quite a lot of pictures. It is probably our favourite activity, after eating. We will probably break Facebook.
