Makes you wonder just what talent is sat bubbling away unnoticed.

My polite smile has shown considerable signs of strain.

At the AGM the first question I was asked was

"who are you?" Turns out I wasn't on the list!

Next question was

"where's the ambulance?"

Oh! So you WE'RE expecting me then! But no one told me to bring the ambulance (apparently the only reason we'd be 'invited' to attend was to bring the vintage ambulance). Boss for some reason isn't answering his phone at this point.

Still it was a good meeting, lunch was provided but not a single item was gluten free judging by the migraine I am coming down with. How you get gluten in a tablespoon of potato salad (enough to look polite and stop questions of why aren't you eating) and an apple I found which may or may not have been intended as a table decoration I have no idea.

Time to get changed and see what jobs I can put off today!

Lesley; funny how some dogs are like dustbins and inhale everything in sight. Others you drop a steak on the floor and they look at you demanding a napkin and silver plate. 

He ate some chicken snacks so I know he's not unwell.

Almost fully tea'd up Lily: I don't twitch as much now!

Chicky; today I had to admit to needing to put the light on in the kitchen to make morning drinks. I couldn't find the kettle much less make a hot drink from the glow of the light!

I'm off to an AGM today. I feel rather as though it will involve lots of smiling politely and sitting around on my own (I'm the only person from the museum going). It's a day somewhere different I guess AND is being held in another museum so I can pinch ideas!

Liri; hope you feel better soon. Drink plenty! 

Pat; most DIY stores in the UK at least have detectors. Really good bits of kit well worth having for peace of mind.

I've drowned out the film with some documentaries on forensics. Nothing like a magot filled pigs head to cleanse the mind.

Dog is being a fussy devil and won't eat. He's happy to munch his snacks but when I offer him his meal he looks at me like I'm trying to poison him.

Beans. Like beams but much less exciting! 

Beams however I have many. All exposed and fortunately woodworm free.

Watching a very strange film I found on BBC iplayer. I'm rather thinking  there'll be odd dreams tonight!!

Explain to Reggie that a hunkerdown upstairs day involves duvet picnics! In other words, things that go with torn off bits of bread and crackersnsuch as dips and a selection of cheeses, pates and cream cakes! 

See original post

 I was thinking beans and toast for dinner but that sounds more interesting. Unfortunately beams is all I have and I'm not in the mood for having to draft myself to the supermarket. 

Getting cold in the house quickly. Worse still; getting dark!

Plasterer visited! Knows neighbours and was entirely understanding at our wanting sound boarding on the share wall to drown them out.

Dog is now hinting. Dog is not understanding the concept of a duvet evening.

Clever idea for the chair Wonky!

I'm playing the "will the plasterer visit today" game. 

I'm also playing the "it's cold, wet, windy, and puppy and I are home alone. Can we bunker up in the bedroom all afternoon / evening? I'm thinking iplayer and lots of blankets.
