This, that and the other

Well, I seem to have been too busy to bother blogging lately. Busy with what? Nothing special, more or less just the regular routine.

Last Saturday we had a little outing to Ottawa. Steph & Olaf organized it to celebrate Steph's birthday which was the previous week. (Tim & I had also celebrated with them on the day of by having them over for pizza from Andalo's and then going to see Volver at the AMC.)

So a gang of us met up for lunch at the Royal Thai on Dalhousie and stuffed ourselves silly, as usual. I had the chicken pad thai, which was really yummy.

Then we eventually all made our way to Dow's Lake and skated for a good hour and a half. It was a beautiful day and we had a good time although not everyone was at the same level of ability.

After skating we all parted ways. Ysabel, Tim and I headed back to the Byward Market area and had a beer and dinner at The Olde Dubliner.

Sunday was supposed to be a productive day (no, the kitchen is not finished yet!)
but we got up late and then did a few messages on the Shore. By the time we had done groceries and headed home for lunch, I think it was almost 4 o'clock! We had a late-ish supper of really tender steaks and homemade baked fries which I got to enjoy all over again with leftovers at lunch on Monday!
