from sunshine to showers all in one day!

What a fantastic morning. 7.00am & the sun was streaming in through the windows at the back of the house. Blue skies, twittering birds & hubby announcing that it would be a good morning for a walk with the dogs. No one about. .... Bye!......Have fun dear!

The flu bug has gone & l feel back to my normal self. My nasty temper has receded into yesterday's mists. Gone are my vicious one liners. I'm sorry to say that whenever l'm in bad form or felling absolutely crap, l become the little girl with the curl in right in the middle of her forehead, you know the one? When she was good she was very, very good & when she was bad she was HORRID!

Hubby, [l must have been truly unpleasant], brought out the tender palms from the garage this morning & even potted up one into a large pot...l have been asking him to do this for about a week now. Wonderfully this evenings rain, yes it's precipitating again, has gently watered the pots. The front of the cafe is rather a sun trap so l can grow a few choice tender specimens in pots. l have a Chinese banana, this is planted in the border, several palms, an olive tree plus a deodora[?] a poisonous plant also known as angel's trumpet. The scent on an evening is wonderfully exotic.

The Lordling brother in law rang today, [doesn't speak to me unless cornered,] trying to persuade Hubby to take ice cream to his polo 'do' next month. The thought of TV cameras didn't appeal nor that 'celebrities' would be there. It all just fell on deaf ears as far as hubby was concerned. Ooooh.

Harry has not yet returned from his awfully big adventure, though Ben spoke to M this morning saying that they were having a great time & had been on a 3 hour walk yesterday. l hope they're not going to be toooo late as Hazzer has exams tomorrow!

l think that eccentrics must run in my family, as you know my father is one, l am heading that way, & the other one is my Godmother. Well what a card! She is now 92 years old & lives down in Norfolk in a nursing home which she finds incredibly boring. She has always been a ' Lady who Lunches' & is now restricted to only going out a few times a week not everyday! Before her accident she lived in a rather nice bungalow in Wells next the Sea, but unfortunately she got that super bug & was lucky to survive. Whilst she was recovering in hospital l sent her champagne & chocolates. 'Sooo much nicer than flowers or soap', she said.......................

Oh dear Matron has given me the bug and now I feel horrid and hate everyone including myself . . .but I enjoyed reading your blog.

And you have added mine to your favourite blogs - thank you so much that cheered me up - although my blogs are a bit scarce at the moment.

I do love an eccentric - like the sound of your Godmother! I've got one a bit like that too. I am also vile when ill; glad you're better.

So glad that your feeling better, Muddy! There's nothing like a little sunshine to unstuff the head and settle the temper.
I had a look at your 'book's section in your profile and see that you like anything with murder. Have you read any of Patricia Cornwell or Kathy Reichs? They are both forensic pathologists (I think!) and the books are riveting.
