Saturday 30th May

Six start this morning, tea, back to bed, Soda Crush, one good game and one that's dragged on and will be there for the next time that I open up the program. I could buy extra lives but it's not my way....patience is a virtue.  I put a load of washing in at just after seven and decided that it would be put to dry upstairs in my summer bedroom in the sun..for as long as it managed to stay.  

I washed up from last night, took a packet of bacon from the freezer and put half of it in the pan with an egg and that was breakfast sorted.  I was unsure what to do today, I'm going into Kardjali on Monday to put the form into the office and do a little shopping and unfortunately it was far too wet to get the strimmer out so gardening was out of the question.  I started to walk the garden to check on the clematis and passion flower and my attention was drawn to the bench with its two good legs and two that needed replacing.  I'd worked out that since I'd managed to get the drill working that it was going to be made easier but when I put the drill bit in and gave it a burst of electricity...it failed to work.  I check the power connections and they were all intact so back to the drawing board Cecil.  I cut the two new legs out and the cross piece, took out the old screws and was about to drill the new pieces to fit into the old holes and that's when I hit the brick wall.  It's all back together with nails and I'll do it properly at a later date.  It still needs a cross strut putting in to hold it all secure but it was at that point that I had to put my toys away, the weather had gone into the usual pattern,,,sunny morning, clouds come over, thunder and rain.  My gardening neighbour had popped her head over this morning to find out what I was doing and she gave me the weather report...'rain, after lunch' and she as right.

I came in at two, had the rest of the Camembert for lunch some Riveta and took it upstairs and fired up the computer.  Transponder TV was freezing and not delivering a good service but I managed to stay awake and watched 'Chicken Run'.  The fire is going, the washing has been moved to the bathroom and will finish drying overnight.  The chicken wings that I got from the freezer this morning are now in the fridge and I'll have them tomorrow...that cheese is lying heavily.  'Frozen' is on the Beeb tonight...have to watch my namesake.  LN....Bath, t.v. and an early night.....LN

Sunday 31st May

I didn't have that bath last night, I watched 'Frozen'. and really enjoyed it.  I'd watched it several years ago and forgotten all about it...and found out it was by Hans Christian Anderson....such a clever story teller.   So in bed by ten thirty and checking up on my Fitbit, it was a pretty restless night even though even though it seemed as if I'd had a good night.  I made bacon and egg for breakfast, washed dressed and my goodness it was cold.  It was twelve degrees outside and nineteen in by I resorted to my Bulgarian vest and it reminded me the childhood saying to 'Ne're cast a clout until May is out' and I'd cast it but retrieved it.  It was raining but only slightly but I wasn't interested in making a name for myself outside.  I settled on the sofa with the Kindle and an incredible tiredness came over me and it was eleven thirty when I came to for the second time.  

It was still a cold miserable outlook, it was starting to clear up and I decided I should really make an effort.  Princess fortunately delayed it, she phoned for a catch-up and I really appreciate that she does.  They are both furloughed, the company they work for is getting back into the flow and are expecting to restart soon.  She said that she's got the best suntan ever and I've suggested that they don't come over here, you would think that I'm the visitor.  My face and hands are brown from working in the garden nut the rest hasn't had any exposure and until the weather picks up, that how it's going to stay.

Eventually the sun came out and I joined it.  I tidied round the compost bin in the yard removing the weeds, planted up a lacy hydrangea under the grape vine and cut back the vine....it never really does any good and grapes really need lots of care.  I repotted the two bougainvilleas, cleared the weeds from round the pot plants and was out there until the rain and thunder drove me inside at six.  Chicken wings and vegetables went into the oven to roast while I sorted some of the shrub cuttings that I'd taken and put them into water to absorb all they can before they get dipped in the rooting compound and then in the soil.  I went out again and tipped the rest of the containers upside down so that they don't collect the rain...the last thing I want is mosquitoes breeding.  

Supper was very filling and I even left three of the chicken wings for tomorrow.  I fancied ice-cream but haven't any so it's on the list for tomorrow along with several other items.  I have to stop off at my student's mother's shop to pick up a letter that they've been holding on to but it's not the one that I was waiting for, two from Princess have gone missing. I think I shall be heading for my cheapy shop after I've delivered my document...I'm having withdrawal symptoms.  LN...Let the evening begin....LN
