How many bottles Dove?

Wonky; love is a terrible thing (and we moved in together in August when it was at the back of a cupboard so I wasn't thinking carefully). OH has to suffer my hot water bottle in June (scalding hot is the best way to sooth my nerve pain) so I'll not complain too much ;)

Earlier today I checked all the fluid levels in my truck, filled the fuel tank (ouch!) packed a lunchbox, and generally got her ready to go to a show tomorrow... I hope HE enjoys taking his friends to the show in MY truck! I'm wondering what embarrassing item I can leave in there just to make it perfectly clear that I own her! (Alas no boxes of tampons handy! 😅 )

Remember to top up on water Dove!

Wonky; no electric blanket here. I gave mine to my father when I moved in with his lordship as he wouldn't tolerate the idea of one. I did have two hot water bottles on the go at one point!

Picked his lordship and his friend up around midnight so at least we weren't out too late. I'm not one for crowds and there were more than enough people out on the street of Sheffield for my liking at midnight so Christ knows how rammed those streets will be today.

Punkdoc; I am enjoying THE Missing but with my brain / memory issues I have to have a post it note to remind me of the time jumps else you can imagine it is quite the confusing experience.

I've just finished the first stint of ironing (bed sheets), I might leave the shirts til tomorrow.

Oh my...

Was it the Clara The Cow stuffed toy from my aunt? (The only thing I'd ever been given with my name on and thus made me think people thought all Claras were horrid people)

Or the science kit that my father took off me before I'd even got the instructions out and for years it sat on his office shelves as I was "too young" (it's probably still there)

Or the hundreds of plastic bits of tat people have brought me over the years as a joke gift because they get pleasure in giving you lots of presents rather than the one book (how restrained of me) and chocolate orange you actually wanted.

954 students so far this month by the way. I'm a bit disappointed we'll not hit one thousand!

I'm here Dove! Been one of those oh so busy days. I'm now on a late night waiting for his lordship to call for a lift home. I don't mind taking him into the big city for a night out; but it's a 30 mile round trip each time (plus it's where I work so that'll be 90 miles today just going to Sheffield!)

I've spent my evening wisely, prepped a months worth of dog meals, changed the bed sheets, dug out the bacon for tomorrow, and glanced at the ironing board... let's not get too carried away on a Friday night!

I'm wondering whether if I take the hound out for a walk around midnight he might get confused and I'll get a lay in tomorrow. Unfortunately I don't think I can trick that my body that needs it's morning mug of tea.

Oh Fidget! If I were anywhere near the A5 I'd go and hunt him if only to give him  company.

I hope the recovery company arrive soon and get him home to you quickly.

Please please remember to get anything that you're not happy with checked out at the hospital.
