Sunshine + strong wind

It’s spring yet it’s still so cold, mainly because of the strong wind. Poor heater that we still have to keep operated (although much lesser).

We have just received our electricity bill yesterday, and it was so expensive!!! In the UK, we pay our bill either monthly or quarterly. We chose to pay quarterly. The previous bill was cheap and we felt extremely glad. But, what we didn’t realise was the amount we paid at that time was actually the minimum estimated. The statement reminded us to update our meter reading with the company if we had to pay extra, and obviously we didn’t because we didn’t read it properly. Thus, this time we have to pay for electricity used in the last approximately 5 months. It’s more painful to pay the money in a lump sum….!!

Photos from the steamboat dinner in February. Just perfect for winter. It was also a farewell dinner for Daemus and Angel. Glasgow is so different without both of you.

2-o-o-9 Birthday

I had a great birthday last year, and it’s probably not too late to blog about it now. (My birthday falls on Christmas Day.) All thanks to Alex Tee for making it so great. He organised such a good cocktail party and took so much effort in coordinating with everyone, getting the drinks , snacks and cake.

I am very glad that most friends turned up and took the effort to dress up according to the dress code. Thanks for the gift card too 😉 I spent it on some clothes on Boxing Day.

The party started at 9.30pm and ended at 4.30am. After all the chilling and lazing around, we went to bed at 6.30am and woke up at 3.30pm. The sun sets completely at 4.30pm. Although it seemed like I didn’t get much daylight during my birthday, yes, I had great one! It might seem wasteful to spend so much time in my dreamland on the day, but it was great to wake up without an alarm clock and not to think about assignments or work at least for a day. Perhaps nothing is more wonderful than getting the choice to do what is liked.

Freeze

We were there again last week with some European friends who were visiting. There were more greens and browns than just mostly whites. Nonetheless, these photos are from the one-day winter road trip, in the coldest period of the year!

Nothing to blog about. Not in the mood to write so much. Period.
