Tuesday's dinner

We popped into the Irish bar under our building on Tuesday night for teas.  And very nice it was too.

Florence was getting a little restless though so couldn't stay long, it's surprisingly hard to eat with a wriggly baby all over the place.

Session 2

The remote gaming thing seems to be working

A bit of controversy with my new dice, I rolled at least 5 natural 20s.  It's been suggested that rather than have the camera on me and Florence, that I position it on my dice rolls. 

Here they are in all their glory.

Only $7.99 from Dave's Dice

Yesterday was a bit wet and windy so we went for a bit of a walk around a couple of the department stores.  Here's a couple of photos from the ground floor in Macy's.

Another snow day!

Woke up this morning to this

And then got kicked out of the house at 9:30 as the cleaners were round.  I tried to go for a long walk along the waterfront but it looks like it might have been a little dangerous.

I went to the beach anyway.  Slightly different from my last beach shot when it was 20 degrees last Thursday.

I went to the pier instead this is a nice little park on the way.

Lost in translation

I don't think the term Minging crossed the Atlantic  A Chinese restaurant, 2 blocks from our apartment.

First time out

Saturday was the second time i've had some me time since moving to Chicago.  The first time outside on my own.  What did I do?  Went to a bar to watch the Liverpool game.

I originally tried to go to a new place but it was absolutely heaving at 11:30 in the morning.  So ended up just going back to the place I watched the other game.  I like it there but will try somewhere else next time.

I've still got it...

I finally got asked for ID today whilst buying some wine.

Florence got bored

Playing D&D remotely with the dweebs

I left my dice at home so have ordered some for next week.  The 6 ho.ur time difference actually works out fine.  1pm kick off for me means the guys have plenty of time to get home after work

Monday snow

Thursday sun and shorts.  It's back to negative degrees next week.  Weird weather in Chicago.

Obligatory shorts and sandals shot
