...as promised! (I will get into the habit of this again!)

I'm trying to enjoy the quiet before the storm of hubby's retirement and moving, but although things have got to get really busy yet, it's not proving to be the quiet that I hoped for.

Last weekend, hubby and I went to Luxembourg City, which is only about 40 mins from home. We'd never been to the city centre, only to the cinema on the outskirts, and had heard that it was a lovely city. Now, whether it was the freezing temperatures, the snow, or the fact that signs for parking garages mysteriously disappeared once you got to the centre, we ended up less than enamoured by it. We did end up parking by the Casemates...parts of the ancient fortress of the city... but we weren't going to hike down into the valley and have a wander as it was just too cold and icy. It looked quite beautiful, and I'm sure is a very lovely spot in nice weather.

In the end we decided to head back to the outskirts and have a late lunch at the shopping mall (or what passes for a mall in Europe) and then over to the cinema where we saw Django Unchained. I know there has been mixed reviews on the film, and maybe it's because I love Tarantino (and Christoph Waltz) but I thought it was one of his best. Me and hubby had a great time watching it and discussing it after...which is something he rarely wants to do after seeing a film.

This week we're trying to get things organized for the move. He's sorting out the basement and I'm doing data entry...inputting all our DVDs, CDs, and books into a database so we know if any go 'missing' when we move (because that wouldn't be the first time). I've also got to scan a bunch of old photos of hubby...the embarrassing ones...so they can make a slideshow to show at his retirement.

I also want to get back in to my Roman blog, but yeah, that may still have to be on hold for the foreseeable.

Ahhh...I'm so looking forward to going to England next week!!

Especially having DVDs sent rather than Watch Instantly?

I'm having a problem with them sending me DVDs in order from my queue. This has happened about three times now (first time I thought it might just be a glitch, second time was right around the Holidays so I was too busy to do much about it).

The Problem...which is also a rant )

ETA: Okay, a FB friend found a number for me (apparently, I had to log all the way out and still go a couple of clicks to find their 'homepage', and it's there....obviously because no already signed-up customer could ever need to contact them), so I shall be calling later.

ETA2: *sigh* And that number was the British number for Netflix (as friend is in Britain). Although it did clue me in that I had to switch Tunnel Bear to the US proxy...and finally found their number. And will (again) call later (yes, they're available 24/7 but I'm on my way out).
