Well life isn’t going to plan at the moment. After our little blip with ill-health we were looking for a bit of normality, but what is normal after all? There we were with all kinds of plans for what was coming next and then Gary fell over a wall and down a 3 foot drop breaking his leg in three places in the process! He’s none weight-bearing until next Wednesday at the earliest and while he’s propelling himself around okay on those now its a little nerve-wracking at times as I ponder what comes next this year!
Fitting the blog in around a house that suddenly seems very large with just one of you to look after it, two spaniels who are used to five outings a day no less, looking after an invalid, keeping the fires going and still putting in the hours working is quite a feat. However it’s getting easier as we form new patterns. So while I can’t yet promise daily posts I’m hoping they’ll be more frequent than of late.
Today we woke to our first heavy frost and I came down to find the AGA had gone off! That made for an unpleasant start to the day. It wasn’t until I’d filled the kettle and lifted the lid that I realised all was not well, and the warm, cheery blast of heat that I’ve grown to expect was just plain missing. It was due a service this month but I do rather wish it had waited rather than force the issue. So today’s plans for cooking have fallen by the wayside, drying oranges in a microwave?? No I don’t think so either. Hopefully we’ll be up and running again by tomorrow.
