Photo from the internet
I’m up to three days ago. What on earth does he mean ‘I’m up to three days ago”? What I mean is I am going through people’s blog postings and I’ve got as far as three days back. So I am 35 blogs from the top of my sidebar. But since some people post daily that doesn’t necessarily mean I’ve only got 35 posts to look at. Help! By the time I’ve reached the end of this paragraph someone will have posted another….
Why the photo of the Forth Road Bridge? Because we used to have a saying that something was ‘like the Forth Road Bridge’. It was said that as soon as the men (it was men in those days) got to the end of
(that’s an interesting spellchecker slip for the word painting) the Forth Road Bridge
they had to start again at the beginning.
So a never-ending job was ‘like the Forth Road Bridge’. Does anyone say that nowadays, I wonder?
I owe one long e-mail and two short ones. I have about seven e-mails to read. I need to arrange a day for visiting my cousins. I have a postcard to register in Postcrossing. I have two other postcards to acknowledge.
I have to be nice to a very unhappy catling. She was spayed yesterday and has to wear a collar for the next ten days to stop her pulling the stitches out. Yesterday she woke up from the anaesthetic and was unhappy about the collar.
Today she is even more unhappy!
I would quite like to watch an antiques show on TV. I need to install a cat-flap in the back door.
About the only thing I am not feeling guilty about at the moment is the garden – it’s been a beautiful sunny, warm, Spring-like day and I have spent quite a bit of it in the garden.
I have even tidied up the leaves and twigs from the gravel drive at the front – a job that was about three months overdue.
And Partner-who-loves-tea and I got our morning walk in so I’ve done my official exercise for the day.
And now I have a migraine – the start of a really bad, sick migraine of the sort that is going to cripple me. I’ve had my tablets and they have had no effect so I’m typing away to try to distract myself. I won’t be able to persist much longer. Bummer! I’m getting a bit fed up of these. Still – I shall get back to reading blogs and commenting until such time as I am driven to bed to moan and feel sorry for myself. I have decided that you must be as bored with my migraines as I am; so I have resolved I am not going to mention my health for the rest of the month. So you may care to avoid my 1st April post because I'll let rip about it again then...
