That’s right, it’s been a quiet week so far in the Corin household as I’m all by myself.
However, before you all chime in with “I knew it had to happen eventually”, I should tell you that she’s just gone to the Lake District for a few days with our friend Amy from New Zealand.
It was a somewhat spur of the moment decision, she left on Sunday morning and I think is coming back on Thursday.
So I’ve been getting up to plenty of football watching, game playing and PC overclocking.
In exciting news this week, we received our UK Drivers Licenses, which means we can finally buy a car. We could have bought a car beforehand, but having UK licenses saves us about Â£200 a year on insurance. Just in case you’re wondering, that brings the annual bill for third party, fire and theft insurance down to approximately Â£700. Ouch. But you have to do what you have to do.
We’ve also got a public holiday this weekend, and I’m really looking forward to it. The last couple of weeks have been pretty tough at work, lots of long, stress-filled hours. If we have a car by then, we may even venture afield. I guess time will tell.
