Had a fun weekend, doing all of the usual stuff.
The weather was a bit rubbish, but brightened up enough on Sunday for a barbeque. Unfortunately the sausages we had were a bit fatty, so cooking them was really hard, having to keep them on the move to avoid the inferno of burning fat that was created. Still, my culinary skills won through and it was all good in the end. Must remember not to use those ones in the future, though!
Saturday night. For some reason, we have a ton of pillows and cushions on our bed. This is fine if you are reading, watching the TV or playing the Playstation, but sleep time always coinsides with most of them being jetisoned onto the floor. On Saturday, Mrs RC got a bit over zealous and there was a crash as a cushion landed on her dressing table, knocking over a drink.
She asked me for a towel or something to clean it up with.
There was a towel on the floor on my side of the bed so I reached for it. As I reached, one of my butt cheeks slid over the edge and I started to slide out of bed onto the floor, my legs staying on the bed because they were tangled up in the sheets.
Not so bad, you think? Well right by my side of the bed is a built in wardrobe with huge mirror doors, and I was heading straight for it with nothing solid to grab hold of to stop myself! I had visions of hitting it, shattering it and spending the rest of the weekend having shards of mirror pulled out of my back and head!
"Help?" I said.
Mrs RC lookd at me, still in mid-slide, and burst out laughing.
My slide continued until my butt touched down on the floor, leaving me balancing there on the tip of my butt, folded in half, with my feet still in bed and my back and head about 2 inches from the mirror doors.
"What on earth are you doing?"
"I'm trying not to fall through the mirrors and slash myself to pieces!"
"Oh, I thought you were messing around!"
All day Sunday she kept laughing about it until there were tears in here eyes...
Finally, you might remember an old post of mine about the biggest rubber duck in the world! Well I saw this add on TV for the first time over the weekend. I think it will become a classic.
