Double Century

This is post # 200 on MrGrumpy's blog, OK not daily updates, but quite a few, many more than he expected to manage.

Today MrGrumpy went to a Custom and Hot Rod car show, it was a nice day out, hot and sunshine, just the way he likes it. Of cause he has returned with a burnt neck (at least he remembered to wear a hat and shades).

MrGrumpy only has 5 more weeks before LittleMissNaughty joins him, he is really looking forward to her arriving and they can start returning to some form of normal life. It will take a while even when she arrives as they have to look for somewhere to live.

MrGrumpy goes for a walk

After working late on Saturday, MrGrumpy decided to take a walk, to the bar, in LosGatos. He has cycled this several times. It does seem to be much further when walking, anyway it was a nice warm day so he did it anyway.
When in LosGatos he had a couple in the Brewery before wandering about trying to decide what to eat,  he ended up choosing a Chicken Tikka wrap (which was very tasty), then onto the Scottish bar next door (which was strangely full of green and shamrocks because it was MrStPatricks day).
After a few more beers MrGrumpy decided it was time to head back, the journey back took even longer, finally he made it back and then nodded off on the sofa for a couple of hours.
When he woke, he looked at the time, 7:30, it was semi light and for a few moments he thought it was 7:30am and he had slept all night on the sofa. Luckily is was 7:30pm and it was just getting dark...

Here we go again

Well MrGrumpy was intending on playing Golf today, but was headed off by work, he ended up inside all day and evening (it was sunny outside)

Why would you

MrGrumpy does question his sanity, why would you move 5000+ miles from friends and family to work from 8am to midnight?
OK not every day, or even every week, but more times this year than most people would do in a lifetime...
Well why... Who knows, he just feels that LittleMissNaughy and MrGrumpy are destined to spend some while on the west coast of the USA and this is the price he has to pay.

After the rain has gone

MrGrumpy had an early night, he had managed to stay awake long enough to have a meal with MrWhiteSox before driving back in the rain.
By the morning, after a decent nights sleep (only woke once which he is pleased about) he headed into the office for 8am, unlike in Cambridge, he only needed his shades and a t-shirt, no jacket required...
He is hoping that the weather will allow him to cycle to work again, not that it has been really bad, but it is much nicer when the mornings are light and not cold.

The Alien has landed

MrGrumpy has returned to the USA, also today all his and LittleMissNaughty's worldly goods should have been loaded onto a ship and starting their journey to the USA (hopefully to arrive in early April).
