Two comments today from Kerri and Alice on my last post of over a week ago have prodded me into action. And no, I haven't been wearing slippers continuously since last Sunday, but I AM still wearing slippers now at 5.30 p.m. on Sunday. I have missed the daily dialogue with my blogging buddies over the past week, have just managed to read and comment here and there.
I've been plagued by some bug that has been coming and going over the past couple of weeks, not feeling sick enough to justify collapsing into bed and having the man who cooks fuss over me (he's good at that). So I've just kept going to work, trying to stay low key, definitely feeling low key. I haven't felt inspired to post anything this week, although you might have noticed my minor rant about the Commonwealth Games in my banner.
But today there is something positive to post about: this is a photo of the just completed project in our front courtyard. A simple bench will be fixed to the wall under the kitchen window to add a finishing touch. The man who cooks will have a nice outlook from his study. Yes, he is also a handyman and does love his projects. He also loves concrete, and those uprights will survive gale force winds, being imbedded in a good whack of concrete. If I ever wanted to buy him something really special, it would be one of those miniature concrete mixer trucks you sometimes see.
