I was going to start on a new cross stitch project yesterday after having posted, but I’d completely forgotten about the Annual Home Owners Association Meeting. Luckily my mum phoned to ask me something and then mentioned for me not to forget to go. As usual these things drag on and on and on and on. It’s also a little bit to do with the Portuguese mentality. Even though it said that the meeting was to start at 21.00 it doesn’t necessarily mean that people actually show up at that time. Having been raised in Holland I’m always punctual and if I know I’m going to be late I always let people know, however, the Portuguese mentality is more like, sure make an appointment but I’ll only get there an hour or two later. So even though the meeting was supposed to start at 21.00 I didn’t actually go down until 21.30 remembering the same thing had happened last year. When I got there we waited another 45 minutes before actually starting the meeting and then it dragged on until about 23.45. There were people who only showed up at 23.00.
Anyway, because I was down at the meeting all evening long, I didn’t get around to starting anything. So now I’m going to finish this post and get started, hopefully this little project won’t take me too long to make and who knows I might have something to show by the end of the weekend.
Speaking of weekend, have a happy weekend everyone, I’m off to spend some time with my parents and gran at my parents’ farm, so a chance to take loads of photos of the dogs and maybe I’ll for another one of my nature walks.
