so it's finally 19115.
(source: dunno, but i'm pretty sure it's a cartoon by Gerhard Haderer)
the weather here has been pretty lousy almost continually since 24.12., except (what a surprise!) for this week's work days. none of my vacation plans worked out at all, but christmas itself was very nice - conny and andrew (oh, and we mustn't forget maxi!) visited.
that's what we did on the 24th, before starting our late-arvo cooking session:
the pooch didn't exactly appreciate being left with this here babysitter while conny and andrew went to the gym; maxi was very worried and insisted on sitting on my lap.
note to self: for the next attempt to make gherkins in brine i'll have to find a better method for keeping them dunked below the surface... three ended up poking out this time, rotted and wrecked the whole batch.
and that's about it for now. keep calm, move on, nothing to see here.
