Wednesday and Thursday this week.

This week has gone really fast I think. Maybe it is because I have been at work. I've been up very early as per usually betwixt 5.30am and 6.30am. I've been tired at night, I think because I've had to be using my brain! I am writing this now as the HG is watching a 'fascinating' programme on how to make a fishing rod.  When I got in from work last night I had left over curry for tea ( see photo below ). It was, I can honestly say, one of the best curry's I have made in ages. I made up my own spice mix, a bit of this n that etc - ground cumin, coriander, chilli powder, garam masala. A tin of tomatoes. Chopped chicken breasts. Chopped onion . Frozen garlic and ginger from the bottom of the freezer.  Tomato puree, a bit of chicken stock and some frozen spinach added at the end. It was really good Tuesday night when I made it. Delicious and even better last night and so good I didn't mind it 3rd time lucky for my tea tonight! I am a bit sad it's all gone now! Was a cafe tea tonight. Pizza for the HG and chunky fishfingers and sweet potato wedges and corn on the cob for Mr 23. 
Before tea though I sat in the garden and enjoyed a cup of tea in the sunshine. And without my glasses on I though that all the petals had come off one of the tulips.....on closer inspection though, I rather think it's an alium! Forgot I had any. Thought I had some in the front but so far none emerging! The first peonies are almost ripe! Maybe tomorrow the hot sunshine forecast might encourage them out. 
Then after I had cleared away and tidies up. I got myself in clean pjs and all comfy in my chair, reclined to watch the Great British Sewing Bee. I promptly fell asleep after 10 minutes. Not because it wasn't worth watching, I think it was because I was so content and relaxed! I was very disgruntled when I woke up at quarter to midnight grrrrr. But all was well because me and Bluebell watched it this morning. That's when I snapped the photo below with her stinky feet at my nose end!

Possibly the best chicken curry I ever made. 

Fairly healthy packed lunch to take to work and Bluebell and I had scrambled eggs for breakfast. 

This is our morning cuddle. Her feet smelt but I really don't mind! I love her so much!

So yesterday a little one at school had turned 6 on Tuesday. Told me yesterday that they missed being 5! And as I love to laugh Ill share a comedytext  chat I had with my sister and my friend about boobs!

It started off 
Lisa - Harry has his piano lesson via zoom at 11. Better make sure he is not in his pyjamas and the piano area is tidy.
Me - And you've got a bra on LOL
Lisa - First job that when I get up. After William once asked, why do you have a bigger chest in the day at night? He was only about 4 or 5 but still...
Me - Hahahahahahahaaahhhaaaahhha I'm telling Eryn
Me - Eryn - another comedy William moment.
Eryn - LOL That's like when I asked my gramma what her boobs were and she told me I would have them too one day. Will they be so looooong?????I asked 
Me - dead from laughter!! 

I saw this online and thought it very apt for this day and age.

Right now, I'm signing off to go clap outside tonight for the bin men I have decided! Mostly because it has been so warm and the bins must stink! I will be very cross and furious if I then see lots of pictures of stacks of police on Westminster bridge etc NOT social distancing.

Lots and lots of love from

  1. My dog also has stinky feet. I'm lead to understand that dogs have scent glands in their feet.

  2. An interesting and cheerful post. I laughed at the boob story.

  3. Your healthy lunch puts mine to shame and I agree with you on curry, it definitely tastes so much better the following day. We've enjoyed a mackerel curry this week.
    I love how children's minds work. Lily keeps referring back to the olden days when she 'used to go to school.' :D

  4. Hahaha aww Lily that's so sweet. Like the boy in my social skills group who couldn't believe I was 'from' the 19s'


Many thanks for taking the time to read my words and respond with your own thoughts. I always try to reply so make sure you pop back to see!
