Good morning, everyone. Thanks very much for giving me a bit of space to get my head back in its rightful place again - which sounds weird but I know what I mean! It was the virus really - it's taken over two weeks but really seems to have given up at last. Unusually, for me, as well as feeling physically yucky, it also had quite an effect on my 'mental health'; that sounds more dramatic than reality but I was very down and lacking in mental ooomph.
I still have a cough and some snuffles but definitely and properly on the up again at last. Phew.
Cherie - how are you?
I haven't really done very much since Tuesday. The blanket is coming on and my stash is considerably smaller. Beth has had a birthday and we went to the Hare yesterday evening to celebrate, which was nice.
I got to SW yesterday after a week away and won the raffle! Chris came round on Thursday and then Val and I enjoyed a good laugh with both of them at separate times. Chris' new little grandson is coming on and his mum and dad loved the blanket. Phew.
The dried fruits ended up steeping in alcohol for a week before I made the cake but it now all smells wonderful and should be so good by Christmas. I think I'm going simple this year and just cut out icing stars to decorate it (as well as the marzipan and all-over icing, of course). But that is for the last week before Christmas - in the meanwhile, it will be 'fed' weekly!
Today I plan to resume doing what used to be called my 'daily dozen'; in other words a bit of exercising. I think it will do me the world of good as long as I am sensible. Apart from that, the only plans I have are domestic ones.
WHat do you have planned for today?
