Thursday, 3 October 2013


Argh, I have failed. It was Wednesday (ie. the day the gulag chucks the children out at lunchtime cackling, then bars the door) and then I had to go out in the evening and blah blah blah, whatever. This is basically yesterday's anyway. I might try and do another later, I might not. 


I am currently suffering the unbearable sadness of the shrunken jumper. The one I'm wearing in my 'about' page. The jumper I'd wear every day between September and May if I could. It is unbearable (I have two, it is fine, but it is still unbearable).

It is impossible to work because this is going on next to my desk (with accompanying electronic fairground music):

Roomba bashing repeatedly into your chair and a mild hangover are incompatible.

Also incompatible with a mild hangover: being called on to unblock the lavatory with an untwisted coat hanger at 7:30 in the morning.

The lost boots saga rumbles tediously, bureaucratically, on.

Quite a lot to do today and signally failing to even get started on it.

Lack of household supplies reaching critical levels. No milk may finally galvanise me to go to a shop, I fear.


I just ate this - a real flan pâtissier and it was excellent:

Belgian bakeries do a thing that they call a flan but it is a sad, pasty, leathery, travesty, with spooky, spongy skin on top. This is the real deal. Also, there is another one left in the fridge which no one ate while I was out last night THE FOOLS.

The sun is still, astonishingly, out.

Went to an actual party last night (well, this) so I feel more like a member of society and less like a jaundiced hermit. It was fun.

I must go and do some work. I will try and return.

Please, more detail on Brusselsinloft. Worth doing?

Patience_Crabstick said...

Why hasn't someone invented a way to keep natural fibers from shrinking?

I'm curious about the book you're reading, Longbourn, in the sidebar. Is it any good?

Waffle said...

Simon - Booked up all this run, but they might do it again. Yes, worth doing, I think for the whole experience of it - it's a great space, the music was good, people were very friendly... Food obv depends on who's cooking (this veg indian one was vg).

PC - I'm quite enjoying - I'm about halfway through. It has a slight Thomas Hardy feel to it about me, both in the somewhat lyrical descriptions of drudgery (though these are far more visceral about how HARD everything is) and in the sense of impending Bad Things. I don't know if Bad Things are actually coming but it feels like they are..

Fresca said...

Just to say, I was blog-hopping last night, found Belgian Waffle several links down the line, and, through you found the owl.
"The Caring Owl" is practically the best thing that has ever happened to me [online, anyway], and I must thank you.
Thank you!
I'm sorry about your sweater. I mean, jumper.

That's Not My Age said...

There are some lovely jumpers over on my blog today, if you're looking for a replacement #blatantselfpromotion

Helen said...

I am sorry for your loss. I have a similar winter wardrobe staple that I would be lost (naked?) without. The loft restaurant sounds excellent, will look out for future runs. Loved your piece on Gaudron in Metropolitan btw - yes I would like to be an ambassador's wife, sigh. And oh isn't this sun lovely!

Waffle said...

That's not my age - I AM. But I cannot afford. Alas, alack.

Fresca - That owl basically is the best thing on the Internet.

L. said...

No one else wants to know what the boys are doing? What is that thing? I showed it to my husband and he guessed, "Gerbil popper?" (!) Is it rat-related?

Waffle said...

L - It's a "grabber"! You know, like a fairground claw thingy like in Toy Story, but miniature. Argos, 20 quid. Don't recommend it.

I'm late, I'm late. But I may have useful shrunken jumper news. Soak offending garment for 20+ minutes in hand-hot water into which you've swirled hair conditioner. Rinse in warmish water and squeeze out excess, but don't wring. Dry it flat, reshaping it as it dries. I've stretched a couple of things back out a bit this way. The conditioner softens the fibres - won't work if something's actually felted but worth a go. xx
