Hello everyone, another lovely weekend at home (not lovely weather, but you can't have everything). On Saturday I went to friends for a roast dinner - it was requested that I made my coffee and walnut cake because it went down so well last time! I must say, good company and good food made a happy day.
Saturday night was one of those nights when sleep won't come, I was still up and reading at 2.30 because I just couldn't get sleepy and when dreams finally did come they were of the strange variety, about a pair of twins and an oboe - make of it what you will Freud. So yesterday morning I awoke with grit in the eyes and a raspy throat and throbbing head that signifies lack of sleep. My mood did improve when I opened the curtains and saw a ram, 3 sheep and 2 lambs wandering around opposite the house. Not sure where they had wandered from, but they seemed quite happy and were fortunately more interested in the grit container than my lupins.
They brightened my day.
I was very lazy yesterday and spent most of the time lying in front of the tv watching afternoon films and Gardeners World on i-player. Cooked a couple of pork chops with new potatoes and drifted around. It was heavenly. The only low point was buying my car tax and a couple of train tickets which set me back £200. Have you ever noticed that however frugal you are, some things cost massive amounts of money compared with what you actually live on?
So today, I am up very early (5.30) as I am off to the airport for a quick trip to work in Guernsey for 3 nights. When I am back on Thursday, I am back for 8 days though - hooray! Let's hope for some good weather finally. Not sure if I will be online - it depends if internet is free in the hotel or not. If not, I will catch up with you all on my return.
