Chilly Versus Chilli


This weekend there has been a whole lot of chilly going around. Its definitely starting to feel like October all of a sudden and I couldn’t be happier about it.

By the time the evenings roll around there is certainly a chill in the air. Even a mild chilli con carne made by Gary’s sister in law couldn’t completely warm me up on Saturday evening!

On Saturday evening, Gary and I went to his brothers Steve’s for chilli and it was the first time Caroline has cooked for us. We usually go out for meals together but as they’re going on holiday next week they wanted to save some money, so instead we settled for chilli night!

Caroline served up a tasty chilli, however I got the mild impression that she wasn’t relaxed under the circumstances. For example, she was being overly critical of her own cooking when there wasn’t anything wrong with it. OK the rice was a little bit soggy but nobody would have noticed if she didn’t point it out. And then with dessert, she was apologising for the brownies being dry. I kind of spent the evening feeling a bit uneasy and on edge, which is unusual because I normally feel so laid back in their company.

Then I also felt a bit uncomfortable when I realised that I had attended over dressed as Caroline was in her comfy lounge clothes without any makeup on, as understandably she hadn’t had much time to get ready. She works and has two young children on her hands etc – I can see that she has her work cut out for her but I couldn’t help feeling a bit out of context. Maybe I should have interpreted it to be a more casual event?

So then the second lot of chilly I encountered over the weekend was a nice outdoor stroll around the park Sunday. To be completely honest, for a mid-October day it wasn’t even that chilly Winking smile I’m just being a baby. I had a great morning yesterday at the park – so peaceful and relaxing.

I took coffee with me to keep warm, but I burnt my tongue so I was annoyed Sad smile

Most of the family showed up at some point so it was nice to spend the morning together in their company.

My cousin’s baby, Harvey, really liked the park today even though he was poorly with a cold. He was contently singing away in his pram and pointing at all the ducks when we fed them, which was so sweet to watch Open-mouthed smile
