A gentle post
I haven't got much to post about
I have taken two days off from work as I caught one of those 24 hour bugs. Really it was about a 6 hour bug starting at 12:30 am Thursday morning. I had no sleep so took yesterday off from work & spent the day on the sofa with sticky up hair, a single duvet with a Man United cover & a white embroidered pillow .
I can assure you it was as delightful as it sounded.
I'm taking today off too. My stomach is growling in such an alarming manner that the dog is keeping away from me. I managed to take him on his early morning walk though. He crawled under my duvet this morning & stared at me intently until I got out of bed at 6:02 am precisely.
I've ordered some yarn subscribed to a garden magazine & am sat up on the sofa trying to catch up with my blogging.
Mike has been working away all week & I have promised him a lovely home cooked meal on his return this evening. I've managed to remove some fish fillets from the freezer to defrost. He would probably like steak & all the trimmings he is getting sole (I think) spread with sun dried tomato pesto sprinkled with parmesan & breadcrumbs if I can muster the strength to do so. I have some samphire to use up so fish it is. I'm also trying to use up the freezer contents too so it's salmon tomorrow. Mike is going fishing on Sunday so a fishy themed weekend it is.
I bought three pictures last weekend. One of a hare which I have yet to photograph. One of a Rocky hound in his trademark pose & a special one for Mike who will at a drop of a hat go off & help someone else with their DIY & leave our house to fester. Harry the youngest at 14 has been studying it in great detail.
I received a delightful package in the post at the beginning of the week . The lovely Jennifer from Thistlebear posted me this cross stitch balloon to say thank you as I sent her a magazine. It was totally unexpected but very thoughtful. It is on my mantelpiece next to Rocky hounds favourite pose print.
Hope you are all well xx
