I have got a large arse Fairy. Thanks for noticing. People don't realise the amount of effort and cake an arse like this takes.
Hound and I got out in the fresh air earlier: neither of us were particularly keen to climb to the top of the hill and he looked at me like I was insane when we walked past the pond (he normally goes straight into it): the waves were really rather large!
Now safely tucked up in the lounge watching the trees waving. Woodhead Pass has been closed due to the wind and gusts of 70 mph have been recorded.
I am... as you'll have guessed sorting my work emails.
Hazel, funny you mention the lengths we go. I stayed at my parents house at the weekend. As I lay trying to get to sleep (with my hot water bottle I brought with me, and my "bedtime stories" playing... that of course I brought with me) I realised that next time I visit I'm going to have to bring *my* pillows.
And perhaps my own bedsheets (no idea what detergent mum uses but it was so perfumed I felt ill).
Oh and I could really do with bringing my own water because their water makes awful tea compared to the water up here. (I already bring my own bread and snacks).
Going away is such hard work.
Oh Pat sorry to hear you're not well. Keep your fluids up, as well as dehydration being a BAD thing, having to keep moving (i.e. to get up to pee) is very important to
a) distract yourself from feeling ill as you watch the loo roll rations get lower and lower
b) keep your muscles from melting into the shape of the sofa
Wonky: we have two duvets both quite thin (one thicker than the other) that come winter we button together if the thicker one isn't warm enough which seems to work rather well. Brought them from Ikea so nothing terribly special!
