pet companions

Peanuts is lovely. 

My children had pet rabbits. They became very tame.

When I was a child my brother had a pet rabbit which my father loved. My father would make tea in the morning to have in bed at weekends with my mother. In summer he would pick rose petals and take the rabbit into their room. It would sit on their bed eating rose petals while they drank their tea.

Can't whistle, tone deaf, can't sing.

Enjoyed the retail therapy this afternoon. Bought a sleek floor lamp that has 3 shades of brightness when you touch a bump on it's stem. But now am knackered and been coughing a lot so gone to bed. OH has just brought me hot chocolate and his iPad. Nighties all.

Bother. I was eating a cerise tomato and there was something crunchy in it. Was the front part of a pre-molar and some of its ancient filling. Have rung dentist son and will have to see when we get back. Feel a bit guilty as he is fully booked for a month so he's seeing me on his day off. He thinks I need a crown.

It was good to come back from an afternoon out and find DD's great news. Well done, DD.

We went to a retail park west of Norwich that I found when looking up lighting. So now I have a very neat floor lamp that positions where you want it, up or down and has 3 shades of brightness when you touch a place on it's stem.

There was also Boots for my skin cream and mascara (not 'til the conjunctivitis is better) and an M&S food. I have never bought food from M&S before, looked yummy, but expensive. But I bought a couple of meals from there all the same. Bought white pillow cases, a couple to take back to France, in the huge Sainsbury's. The French use square pillows, which I don't like. I buy English feather ones. Now I feel tired, but I know this horrid bug is really on the way out.

We are booked to go to a Pantomime tomorrow and I wanted a trial run out to see how I felt.

Morning all.

Had quite a good night and feeling I may be able to venture out. Eyes are a lot better too. Want to buy a floor lamp. The sitting room lighting is very bright, in the evening we turn it off and have a table lamp, but then it's not bright enough and I can't read.

But plumber is coming to check the boiler, end of the morning.

Morning all, better night. May feel well enough to venture out, need some retail therapy to put me back in the land of the living.

I did French at school but by the time we moved to France I'd forgotten most of it. It was mostly written, now I can speak it but can't spell it!
