Been a long time

Hi all, time now 21.00 and I can't believe how long it is since I wrote last. Ashes to Ashes...watched it last Friday and I was so disappointed at the ending I could hardly speak. Went over and over it in my mind, went on different forums to see what others thought of it and most people didn't like it much either. On the Sunday I watched it again on Iplayer and as I knew what was coming I paid more attention to it and the 2nd time around I didn't mind it and I must admit to shedding a tear when Bolly entered the pub to go to heaven.The weather.......it was way tooooooooo hot for me on the weekend and on Monday. Tuesday was just right for me and today it was back to longer sleeves again as I was a bit cold, there can't be blood in my veins, that's why they have so much trouble trying to get it out for blood tests.I had lots of tests over the last few days and I'm fully certified.....fit. What a relief, I'd already put myself on life saving drugs and changing my lifestyle, this is all in my head by the way. The pc has been playing up so hardly been able to get online so terrible withdrawal symptoms there as well, honestly what would we do without our pc's, I dread to think. Signing off, Linda x

Sunday, time now 18.38

Hi all, just for a change it's raining and I mean tipping it down. Had a nice cuppa in bed this morning brought in by hubby. Cooked a BLT for mum and full English for hubby then fed myself. After breaky Saffy and I went for a nice walk and when we got to the field I did a march across it for a good bit of exercise, plus more singing. Finished the ironing in the summerhouse but no music this time, I watched Ashes to Ashes again, still can't figure out what it's all about, roll on Friday when we find out. I hope it has a good ending and not one that makes you think what a waste of time that was. Off to try another couple of bath bombs in a minute then just got my nails to do before my hospital visit tomorrow. Only a short blog tonight. The blanket I was talking about yesterday was my electric blanket, I just love getting into a warm bed. Bye for now, Linda x

Saturday evening

Evening all, as Dixon of Dock Green used to say. Weather been quite good today, no rain so it must be good. Mum and I went to Cranleigh yesterday to have a look at the charity shops and I thought they would be expensive but they weren't which was a surprise. We both bought a pair of shoes, mine were walking ones and I had them on when I took Saffy out today and they were great and so comfy, mums were silver for her cruising holidays.Mum and I went to a table top sale today but I think we missed out as it looked like 3 cars in the car park so we decided not to go in, after thinking about it the people were probably inside, some you win, some you don't. Hubby and I went to Starbucks today as we both received coupons for free coffees, so when it's free I feel the need to take advantage of that fact. I took a lot of ironing to the summerhouse and listened to some music while getting on with it. It's a good job no one can see me as I was pracing around when certain records came on and singing at the top of my voice, joy. The Adam Lambert CD is great if you can take a listen to it. I didn't see him on American Idol as I don't watch it but the CD is great and if you take a look at the video of "For your entertainment" I think it's the best thing since sliced bread, if you do take a look let me know what you think. Might go and put my blanket on, yes I still do and love it, and find a new book to start.Going now, Linda x

Hi all

Hello everyone, not much happening except still waiting for an outcome of the election, what a farce IMHO. All plants and veggies in but what's happened to the sun, perhaps I just answered my own question, I put my hands up it's all my fault. If I pull all my plants up again perhaps the sun will come out. Mind you I do remember saying a couple of weeks ago that could have been summer, looks like I may have been right. I did a fair yesterday, not good. Can't give any figures as I don't want to depress myself again. Next one is in July at a college so hopefully more peeps through the doors as parents usually support their children.Still making bath bombs and I have so much " bath fairy dust " and a couple of normal ones as well. Found out that the scent has to measured but that's ok now. Will soon be at the stage when I get people to test a few for me. 2 people at the fair yesterday were selling bath bombs so I had a chat with them and they both said it's trial and error at getting the mixture just right. I had one in the bath Saturday and the colour was really dark I can't make that mistake again but the one last night I used whizzed round the bath like a goodun. Hubby just arrived home so better sign off and get him something to eat. Hope all is well for you out in blogland, take care and don't get lost or stolen, Linda x

Polling day today

Hi all,voted today and time now 23.06 might watch a bit about it on the tv shortly but not for long. I can't believe how cold it's turned, we had the heating on the other evening. Been making sure my new little plants are watered and hoeing around them to keep the weeds away. Today I had another blood test, not nice. I told the vampire, sorry, lady that it's difficult to get blood out of me, similar to a stone, but she started on the right arm and gave up then did the same on the left arm but I did spare her a few drops from that arm and now have a lovely bruise to show for it.Goodness knows what they're testing me for but should have the results back by about wednesday so if there's a problem I'll know then if they ask me to make a doctors appointment.I've been busy making bath bombs and bath dust and this evening tried another receipe a bit different to the others so will test them in a day or two. Don't think I'll have all the paperwork ready to take anything to the fair on Sunday, will have to wait and see.I've just gone and put my blanket on for about 10 mins on number 9 so it should be nice and warm for me to jump into shortly. Signing off now, take care, Linda x

I made " bath crumbs " today

Hi all. Today I thought I'd make a couple of bath bombs as I now have my certificate, but I made the mixture too wet and now I have a lovely smelling kitchen and a load of "bath crumbs". I'll use them in the bath when I can demould one 1/2 as I couldn't get it out of the mould and use the other bits as I go. Tomorrow is another day as the saying goes when I'll try again, fingers crossed for better results. No gardening today as it's been wet all day. Regardless of the weather tomorrow I'll be putting my tomato plants out. A bit of a miserable day today but I did manage to get my things priced up for next weeks fair, so it wasn't a complete waste.Think I might watch Lewis later on as I like it and I read he may have a love interest in these episodes, ah bless. Think I'll sign off now and check some blogs. Bye for now, Linda x
