its lovely how kind words from people can make a person feel so much better and lift the miserable feelings brought on by flu....thank you all so much for your comments.
i am presently seated in my favourite armchair, wrapped in a big woolly cardigan and scarf.
swampy stoked the rayburn hours ago so the warmth is coming through the door of the kitchen, but the sun coming through the front window is making the room feel toasty so there is no need for a fire yet.
i woke to the most glorious hard frost and brilliant blue skies, which as i sat in bed drinking my lemon tea was replaced by a thin creeping mist that turned the world a sparkiling silver. swampy said from up the hill where he was with cody he was in a clear area and all around him was a layer of mist that he was able to see slowly rolling through the valley, the top of bulbarrow hill was clear in the blue skies. i havent yet seen the pictures he took but i hope they are good ones!
i doubt i will be moving far from this chair today...last night i poked my head out into the garden and the cold started me coughing...i have just made myself a smoothie...oh the joy of frozen blueberries! and poked my head out of the back door. the temperature is just above freezing so i think we can safely say that winter is with us. i rescued my aloe vera plant which was looking rather frost-bitten and found it a nice little pot to sit in on top of my compost kitchen caddy.
i have noticed that this afternoon one of my favourite Ealing films, the 1953 'The Titfield Thunderbolt' is on...so i know what i will be doing this afternoon.
swampy has an hospital apointement this afternonn but he is leaving me at home...the heating in pippin is what you would expect of a 36 year old work horse so i will stay home with cody and keep the fire stoked.
another lazy day for me...i have decided to do little today and give myself this one extra day and get myself back to normal tomorrow. finish and send my assaignment and maybe start the reading for my next module...all about the history of the Colosseum, which i am really looking forward to.
so my friends, thank you again for all your kind thoughts and comments, they are so much appreciated.
I gave myself two hours off from packing orders. Time for a walk across the fields. Out into the magic of a frozen morning. I love that sound of frozen lea...
