Birthdays, Beach and Blood Sugars

  • Words: Finished the micro edit on Monday with a massive 11,998 words 🙂 Now just a last proof and ready to hit publish!
  • Carbs and Cals: Still maintaining the 5:2, the results on Si’s blood sugar continues to astound
  • Workout: Most days out with Nell and a morning in the garden, helping…not
  • Bedside Table: Just finished Desecration by JF Penn. Wow.

Spent the morning in the garden this morning preparing the orto (vegetable patch) for potatoes and onions. Lots of lovely wormy compost now being dug in by the chickens. Have to keep Nell away as she keeps nicking the stuff they pick up! Little muppet. Also pruned our huge Persimmon tree, which is beautiful but we hate the fruit (known also as Sharon fruit). Chicks and Nell don’t mind it though.

Had a weekend off last week, well it was my birthday. It’s the only time of the year i remember how old I am!  Had a lovely walk along the coast at Porto San Giorgio. A stunning sunny, blue-sky day but a mean cold breeze. Simon spoilt me rotten and cooked  a lovely Beef Stroganoff for supper and no rugby!  Bit of a change this weekend. Had a movie date last night as our Spectre (James Bond) DVD arrived. Fire lit at 4pm, animals fed and watered and a large bowl of popcorn completed the set up. Fantastic movie. My dream job would be a Bond Girl. 😉

Much as we love our animals they can be a pain at times. Having three dogs, six cats and three chickens does not make on the spur decisions very easy.  Carol and Phil (friends who inspired partly The Good Expat Life) have booked a week in Venice during mid April and have asked us to join them for a couple of nights. It would be sooo lovely to go and catch up with them. They’re the kind of friends who you may not see for months or years but when you do get together you just pick up where you left off.

Good friends are like stars…You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.

The technical problems persist with yet another bucketful of hours spent online with several Microsoft technicians. And after all that, the problems persist. And would you believe it you can’t email Microsoft Customer Service to complain? I wonder why…

Hoping next week will be more productive, I’m gagging to write some new stuff so am going to pencil in a couple of sessions.
