Tonight I went to see Inception (which I give 2 thumbs up to and think you should see it!) with my friend Lisa, who treated me since my birthday is tomorrow...well here in London it's already my birthday. Lisa lives South East of Central London so we had to find a place that was equidistant between us and that was Streatham. Thanks to Lisa's husband they found and emailed me the route to take to get to the
Lastly, I learned how to us the washing machine AND the stove today. Now you may be thinking that I am completely incompetent and haven't even cooked or done my own laundry before, but I'll have you know I've probably been doing my own laundry since I was 12. Things are a little different here, the cook top or hob as they call it, looks like it would be simple however I was unaware that when you turn the knob on and the gas comes out you have to push a little button that then lights the flame. It's a little scary, I'm not going to lie. I mean I feel like I was about to fill the flat with gas and then hit this little button and I'd have a Fight Club moment where the whole place explodes! I certainly wouldn't want Tom coming home to a charred flat. And the washing machine, I got a tutorial on the phone last night from Tom. Its a front loader and I've used one of those at my sisters but I know that you have to pour the soap into a little dispenser up top. Not in this case though. Its super simple, I throw the clothes in, toss in a washing tablet, it start and voila!
Really it's the little things in life that excite me. Now I think I am going to head off to bed and think about what other exciting things I can do for my birthday. I have more laundry in mind...ooohhh!!!!
