The joy of a casual get together [Aug. 3rd, 2012|09:22 pm]
I did something tonight that I've been missing. The Girl is doing one of her school play performances, and the lodger is out clubbing with her mates. The Guy is off doing army work for 3 weeks, so I was going to be alone for dinner and I didn't want to be. Lo and behold, I came across a friend/neighbour at work today (she was at a PhD session for someone she knew and I was on the panel for) and I invited her to dinner. And I had just the gluten free thing (she is coeliac): steak, sweet potatoes, and sauteed kale. Very paleolithic. After dinner we watched 'Harold and Maude', which I'd never seen. Very much of its time, but rather sweet and fun. A perfect quiet evening. When I was young it felt like I'd have casual get togethers 2-3 times a week. Now that the kids are grown, I want that again.
