Monday 18th February

Quoted from MikeyB
Happy Birthday Elsa! Glad you've had a lovely day and managed to get out of the house!  Nowt wrong with cheesy chips, sausages and hamburgers... food of the gods!  



Thanks Mikey B and I'm so pleased that the little one seems to be out of the woods....That's children for you and believe me...you've got a long way to go...

Such a beautiful day today.  Clouded over a little now but I looked at the nest and decided that it needed stripping down and the bedclothes launching into my thing what does it and not too sure that I'm going to manage to get that kingsize quilt back into that quilt cover single handed but I can always go over the road for reinforcements should it be necessary.  Washing pegged out after a fashion and though it would be a good idea to take a chair outside for a bit of a read and as normally happens, the clouds rolled over and the sun went in.  I should know by now and there again...it's only February.  

Had a spot of bother getting into the blog this lunchtime and I'm hoping that there is a glitch with the internet provider....blog was OK when I went in through the backdoor so to speak.  Always makes me a little nervous....I should really try to print it all up so that I've got a record....one day I might want to make it into an ebook...for free of course and edited to take out some of the rubbish.  

So I'm in and the washing is about to be removed from the line and on to the airer....catch you later...

Monday continued

Washing in, on the airer, bed made up ready for tonight and did it all on my own, supper was roast chicken with the rest of the mashed potatoes made into balls and baked in the oven.  I must admit I did have a glass of wine with it...I'm sure my kidneys will cope with one.  It's supposed to be raining tonight according to the weather men but to date nothing and the temperature again seems to be dropping.

So washing up can wait until tomorrow....dear Tommy will have a selection of goodies tomorrow so he's be licking his lips as I walk up the road towards my Avatar's house.....LN.....I'm looking forward to going to bed tonight...fresh bedding is always pleasant to get in to.  LN

Tuesday 19th February

Split shift in bed last night despite my lovely clean nest...read for a couple of hours and not sure what caused it but the fifth and final book of Saxon bit the dust.  Did managed to go off again until seven but these sort of nights don't do me much good.

Fire lit as soon as I got up this morning and it was a cold and damp one.  There was a brief of glimmer of sun for all of about ten seconds and then down came the mist and at lunch time along came the rain that eventually turned into sleet.  Checking out the men that are supposed to know, we should be having snow tonight but to date nothing more that we had earlier.  

Surprise visitor this afternoon.  Remsie's grand daughter delivered another birthday card for me and thank you A.  It was a lovely surprise...I know that you've got a lot on your plate at the moment.  The one from Australia hasn't arrived yet but the novelty factor means that it is probably being shown around Djebel if only for the stamps.  The girl is about thirteen and asked me if I had any English books and bless her, she can read it but hasn't got a clue what it is all about.  I showed her the Kindle and she started to read the page that was lit up and kept stopping to ask me what the word was.  I translated some of it for her but as for the story...must buy her a hat so that it doesn't go over her head.  It's the way that they teach English here...they can all read it but don't understand a word.  She got to play games on my pc though...

Supper tonight was cold chicken and the food that I had put to one side for Tommy is still sitting in the kitchen and will be tomorrow's treat.  I haven't even ventured out of the door today...not much need...enough wood and coal but I will deliver the food tomorrow before it goes off.  

Quick Birthday greeting for Janet....have a wonderful cruise with the family and friends....LN....I've got washing up to do before I settle down for the night...

Thanks BG Bound.....I thought the New Year stuff was early for next year and have a wonderful cruise Janet......bet we don't get pictures of whales though!!

Silly night's sleep again last night.  All due to me going to sleep in front of the fire so by the time that I got to bed at eleven thirty. the mood had left me.  Eventually head down at  two thirty but didn't know where to put my are for comfort.  Checked out the weather and it was snowing quite hard but not sticking on the terrace but it was white over this morning.  As the sun came up it melted it all which caused fog and mist which blocked out the sun...what a vicious circle.  Cleared up around lunchtime and it was a lovely day and the sun in my stairwell made it very warm but chilly outside when I went to burn the household rubbish.  Tommy got his breakfast and wolfed it all down and stayed around in the yard while I got the wood in.

Sat reading this afternoon and have come across another prolific author and since they all appear to list death in the title but no sequence number I've had to list them so that I read them in order.  I made the mistake with Lee Childs and they were all over the place.  

There's a toot, toot outside the gate at about four thirty and so I go out and there is a car and a lady with a parcel for me.  This one I don't know so she didn't stay around to find out who it was from and it's as well.  It was a card and calendar from my son and it must have taken me about fifteen minutes to get into it.  It had gaffer tape round it and with only one hand to push and pull it wasn't easy.  Lovely pictures of the family and the two grandchildren in some super poses.

The wrist is aching tonight and I've just given it an application of the repair gel that was dispensed.  Not sure of it's purpose but it's supposed to be brilliant for sport's injuries.  I suppose going to the cash point can be considered a sport by some.  Pleasant day though not wildly exciting....let's hope my little brain stays chilled for tonight....I wont to go to sleep at eleven and wake up at seven...OK!!  LN....I'm off to the kitchen to see what might be cooking..LN

Went to bed at about ten thirty last night....packaging no problem but can I just remind you son, we are two hours ahead and not one so after answering the phone, sleep was put on the back burner and the book came out.  When I eventually settled off again I was dreaming so vividly that I almost wrote it down this morning but caught the sunrise at about six thirty and camera out.  Fire still going from last night so salvaged it, ashes ditched and breakfast underway.  By nine this morning I had done all I wanted to do so settled back with my book but at eleven I was flagging so took to my bed at eleven thirty and it was almost three when I woke up again.  Whether it's the tablet I don't know.  I'm aware of the dull ache in my wrist but my dreams are very vivid....I'll let you know.

Avatar came round this afternoon for a chat and to return the facial sauna that I had let her grand daughter borrow.  I haven't seen the results...I hope it worked.  First of the thirtry six books down and well into the second....female detective set in the year 2056 thereabouts but they seem to have the same problems as does the year 2013.  Supper tonight was home made vegetable soup and the warmed bread that my Avatar delivered.  There was more food for Tommy but when she's around I don't often deliver it.  She would probably think it was a complete waste and that Tommy eats better than she does.

Eight thirty...trying to decide whether to go into Djebel tomorrow or into Kardjali on the bus....Lidl have a cross shredder on offer...not so important here as in the UK but thought it might be a good idea....spam literature hasn't reached here yet.  So back to my book, back to my fire which seems to be going exceptionally well tonight for no apparent reason...just the way it goes some nights.  LN...sleepy valley for me tonight....and phones switched off...LN

Thanks Jacqui...sunrise splendid yesterday...today?  Haven't even see it.  The rosiest glow is in the woodburner!!   As for the soup it was delicious but I think it was the bread that gave me the heartburn...I'll stick to shop stuff from now on....

Happy birthday M....hope your card got there in time as for the bottle of wine....it's in the post or ASDA...not sure which.  This morning's update is to complain about changing various passwords and the ever decreasing circles we appear to go in to find new ones....bit of a bugger isn't it and I'll explain why later...I still have work to do and as for Djebel...the weather is too grim to be out there in it....curled up by the fire seems to be the order of the day.  Must get on...I've got loads of books to read.
