Saturday 16th February

Better night......six thirty start but have felt OK today.  I've been using the wrist..painful but still must keep at it...gentle exercise...much more interesting that exercises.  Enough wood in and kept a little fire going today...just makes the place more cheerful.  Task for today...a mad urge to waft round with the vacuum, take the dust off the place and the only part I was dreading was if the dust bag filled up and I wouldn't be able to get the bag clip in place easily but the gods were with me....two more cards delivered this morning by one of my neighbours who apologised that he thought that nine thirty was early.  I had to explain who they were from and why...just a thing that you have to do here.   

Got the rest of the pork with onions, tomato paste and a drop of the red into the slow cooker.  Sun came out this afternoon enough to get a couple of windows open and blow the dust that I hadn't managed to find and settle it somewhere else.  The house is really looking very smart.  Going cold now, there is supposed to be a frost tonight.  Managed to peel and mash potatoes, peel and slice carrots and supper was really delicious and plenty left for tomorrow.

Tomorrow is my birth share six year old's party in Djebel so I might wend my way in there by taxi to deliver her present. I'll see how I feel in the morning.

PC going off now and down to business.   Going to strip the bandage off and saturate the said appendage with hand cream......it's a little scaly after five weeks in plaster.....and definitely in need of something.  Fifty percent of fourth book down and twisting and turning in every direction.  LN....things to do and book to read.

Hi Elsa hope you don't mind  could I suggest some olive oil and a few drops of lavender if you cant get lavender oil chop up some ginger (for healing )mix together store in a jar rub in when needed  
or mix sunflower oil with honey rub in leave for 3 to 4 min rinse off better than cream  and cheaper

Thank you Linda and I'll look forward to receiving the card as will my neighbours....oooohhhh....Australia.....They love it and so do I.

Lavender I have in the garden Jacqui so I'll make an infusion or concoction?  I have no idea of the difference and think I better Google it first.  As for the ginger, only got the powdered stuff but can buy fresh when I go into Lidl next time...new to me...never heard of using it before.

The sun is shining and all's well with the world.  Six thirty start this morning without any interruptions once I'd found out when to rest my aching appendage.  Fire going so I'm toasty after I've showered and washed my hair.....and I've decided to take that taxi into Djebel....it would be rude not to after her father invited me to the bash.  So breakfast, get clean and presentable to the world and saving my present from Princess for later .... stretching out the day...

Sunday continued

Thank you all for your good wishes and yes I have had a lovely day. Ordered the taxi, got glammed up and headed for a birthday party for a six year old.  I know which side my bread is buttered on...cheesy chips, sausages, hamburgers, homemade filo cheese pastry, salad and delicious birthday cake.  There were about twenty little children and mothers and my super restaurant lady.  Two of the little children has waistcoats that had been made by my restaurant lady and I casually said that I wanted one but now in white and she suggested black.  I thought nothing of it and ten minutes later, the birthday girl presented me with my present and what was it!!  A black waistcoat that she had made for the shop but she'd nipped down and got it for me.....lovely lady.

Got a phone call from Gouljan and she was also in Djebel waiting for her Cinderella coach to get her back home.  I suggested that she waited at the bus station and I legged it up there and we got a taxi back together.....lovely driver...despite having to go on to the next village the price was the same.

Spoke to CJ, Princess and Martin and the present from Princess and company was a magnetic book mark which I mistook for a fridge magnet not having read the instructions....and by golly it is and a packet of wild seeds to sprinkle as I think fit.

Not hungry but I've switched on the slow cooker with the remains of last night's beanfeast and I'll see how I feel later.  

And a good day was had by all!!  LN...I'm off to tend the fire and I've found the fifth book of the Saxons so got something to get my teeth into again....LN
