Saturday night

Saturday night has changed from the days when I refused to ever stay home on a Saturday night. The night usually concluded with some 'fun' together. Hey hey, it is Saturday night, nookie night. Not soured by thoughts of going to church on Sunday, I always work up the next morning with a happy self satisfied relaxed smile on my face. Saturday night is now a night for good and/or repeat British tv shows, and scotch, checking Tattslotto to see if we are suddenly rich, and scotch, writing inspired blog posts and scotch, thoughts and headlines for future blogging, and scotch, and planning Sunday, and scotch.

Oh, I will finish this later. My new and ever so interesting Russian oligarch friend in London with impeccable taste in home furnishings is messaging me on my tablet. His offer of an airfare is generous, but I know how disappointed he would be. I will just stay here with R.

Is nyet the Russian word for no? I foolishly learnt the Russian word for yes first.

Ciao.

  1. I hope there is an Aldi post on that list of future blogging. ;)

    Nyet is definitely the Russian word for no. нет is how they write it. да = da = yes. ;) Is it possible your Russian is actually in Nigeria?

    1. Snoskred, I am too cynical for that. No, he is the real thing. Yes, I will write about Aldi soon. We have been shopping there for a few months now.

    P.s. stick with R, you can't trust the Russians 😀

    1. Strayer, I do know that everything comes at a price.

  4. I don't know if my blog is showing the proper notice required now by the EU. With a custom domain I can't see it outside the EU, I'm told, so I don't know if the required notice now for outside users is there, so I could be invisible now.

    1. You seem quite visible to me. I don't really think we have to actively do anything.

  5. I agree with Grace about the Russians, lol.
    Enjoy the weekend, even if you just watch tv and write your blog posts. How we change...I also used to enjoy going out to movies, dinner, dancing, at least once a week, now I don't mind just sitting in front of the tv or computer and not socialize at night.

    1. Sami, the sad thing is that it is our preference to stay home on Saturday nights.

  6. It is an age thing. Saturday nights were for partying; now for footy, a few drinks, UK tv and semi nakedness.

    1. Hels, semi nakedness? Do you take your bra off?

  7. Now that I no longer have paid employment (I started to type work but caught myself), Saturday is like any other day.
    Scotch is not my tipple any day of the week though.

    1. EC, we have the shopping ritual that makes it clear to us that it is Saturday. Scotch can be wonderful. Ask millions of Scots.

  8. Scotch is a good drink, and I do like scotch, although, I've not had one in a long time. How boring of me! I've a bottle of Dimple Haig here, unopened, still in the unopened box in which it came. I bought it back in December, 2016!

    It's maturing....(I could say like me, but I think I'm just getting old...not maturing)!!

    1. Lee, I'm afraid Scotch would never sit around for long here. Yes, I suppose there must be a point where you have matured, and then get old.

    1. Jayne, I do enjoy Father Brown. I can't remember the last time I saw the clock strike midnight.

  10. Saturday nights used to be for a big cook up to stash things in the freezer for quick meals during the week. Now I sit by the computer trawling through real estate sites looking at homes I can't afford. I am thinking of giving that up though, since many "open" homes have overdone the neutral decor with every wall and ceiling blindingly white. There's just no character in any of those homes, nothing warm and welcoming at all.

    1. River, our walls were all white when we moved here. We repainted one wall in each room with another strong colour, except the bathrooms and kitchen.
