Quiet Time

Sunday afternoon already.  The rest of the weekend was just a blur.

Yesterday I didn't feel that great. Nothing I could put my finger on, just not quite right, and I kept nodding off.

The ferry didn't sail yesterday because of the gale force winds so there were no Saturday newspapers and no crossword to keep me awake.

We had 6 friends round for supper last night but I didn't feel up to spending hours in the kitchen so I made a very simple meal. Quick, easy and enough to fill them up.  A fish chowder which we had with wild rice and chunks of artisan rye bread. Followed by a platter of various cheeses then a dessert which was incredibly easy and took around 5 minutes to prepare (berry crumble sundae).
It was a good evening and they left around midnight.  Luckily I had already put one load of dishes into the dishwasher while we were having coffee so I finished off the rest of the washing up this morning.

P went into Peel this morning to collect Saturday's delayed newspaper but the car wouldn't start so he had to use the old van he keeps for trips to the tip and the builder's yard.  He used the jump leads on his return and managed to get the car going again. He has just gone out to give it a run around and make sure it is OK.

I shall now sit down quietly with the crossword and see how long it takes for me to fall asleep.

  1. I wish they invented a dishwasher that would empty it self.

  3. Could it be that the rest of the weekend was "just a blur" because of wine? Best to drink it from glasses rather than necking it from the bottle.

  5. You did well to not feel well and still have six visitors and prepare a meal for them and consider it fine that they left at around midnight. I come out in a rash even thinking about it. You must have had a second and third wind.

    1. Ha. Thanks Rachel. Once they were all here, eating, drinking and talking I just needed to put food on the table at appropriate intervals and go with the flow.

  6. It's funny how some days we don't feel the ticket isn't it? I think I am gradually coming to realise that the best thing is to go with it, more often than not the next day everything is okay.

  7. You need a battery charger. Or a new battery. Last time we had this problem I got both. Haven't needed the battery charger yet.
