Woke at 8.15 which was heaven, doesn’t happen often in this house as madam is an early riser, but of course had been awake in the night with that cough, cough, cough, more Chinese water treatment. Had to give her medicine at 2 a.m not easy when she is on the top bunk and protesting about having the cough mixture, I am standing there trying to focus on the spoon, no glasses and sleepy eyes it was not easy indeed.
Our neighbour was having a new fence put in today, this traumatized the not very brave cat, took me ages whistling to get him in. I know whistling for a moggy is strange, but it works normally. He has since retired upstairs, without eating, why is it no-one else wants to eat and that is ALL I want to do.
I took charge of the TV entertainment today so we watched Mama Mia, it really makes me laugh, it is what I needed. Pierce Brosnan’s singing is the funniest, I can really relate to this as I would sound
very similar worse.
Cooked Enchiladas for dinner, there was way too much meat mixture to divide between the tortillas so improvised and made Enchilada Lasagne! The recipe called for me to ‘slake’.This sounded painful! I have been cooking for
30 years a few years and have an O’level in cooking and have never heard of the term, found it on the web and this is the definition for those of you who like me were in the dark, Slake – The mixing of a thickening agent, such as arrowroot or cornstarch, with some type of liquid. Nothing if not informative and educational!
After day four of house confinement, I bolted out of the house like a racehorse out of the starting gates (well ok I was more like a donkey actually), but it was good to get out and breathe that fresh cold air in. Boy was it fresh and cold too, I only wear Capri running trousers, so about 4 inches of my legs got really cold. I kept fleece and coat on all the time. the gloves were on, then off, then on, then off and then on and off again, I hate having cold hands and hot hands also, nightmare. The wind was bad too tonight, now I’d like to point my finger at the weather for this but no it wasn’t that kind of wind, I was definitely gas-powered tonight! Sorry just sharing!. When I set out was not sure how long I would go for, but wanted to do a long one after being cooped up at about the 8.5 mile mark knew I’d only make 9 miles as the tummy was sore. Fortunately I got in and in the bathroom in time, that is it no more bran cereal for me! This is something I know, but supplies low due to house confinement and thought one helping would not hurt, boy was I wrong that was dangerous as well as almost disastrous.
