Tonight the Hartleys welcome the Borgs for dinner and drinkies. Its been embarrassingly far too long since we saw one another, but kind of expected: with two out of the four of us being crew, and the other two working full time on the ground, and add one little person who takes ALL of our time up, its not surprising that months have passed since we broke bread last.
During the day I accomplished lots too: blood test as a prerequisite for my Visa transfer, oversee the handyman who I invite to do odd jobs at home, nap with King, take him to nursery by 2pm, Skype with Sylvia on my return home, argue with mum over the phone, clean the apartment (bleach, you are my friend, for you sanitize my floor tiles like no other agent!), fetch the child, do a shop for tonight, put Kingsley down for an evening nap, and finally play hostess to our wonderful friends, the happily married Borgs.
