At the moment I am blogging! Well, reading blogs and it occurred to me that I could quickly write this post and then get back to blog reading.
Watching a programme that I recorded ages ago called Building The Ancient City. It is quite interesting. I am waiting until 9 o'clock for the last part All Change at Longleat which has been interesting.
For dinner we had a chilli that I had frozen and taken out earlier to defrost. With rice and some grated "Mexican" cheese
When I finish blogging I am going to get back to working on a little surprise for someone.
Or I might try and finish my book. Bridget Jones, Mad About The Boy, I reckon that I have less than a quarter to go. I know. Another book!
And I will be hoping that a cuppa will appear in my new Emma Bridgewater mug. Or my other new Emma Bridgewater mug. Yes. I bought two!!
Looking around at the autumn décor that I have been playing with. Still needs tweaking before I show you. I need to dust first as well.
Enjoying the candles, but wishing that "seaside" would burn faster so that I could get a new autumny one out. Blue candles don't go with my new colour scheme! I might just put it away tomorrow and get another one in any case....
Still not feeling quite myself. I was first thing this morning. I bounded out of bed and started gogging the apples that I bought home from a weekend away. Gogging means peeling, coring and slicing them with my special machine and then cooking them down and freezing the result for use in the winter. Then I went to see if the November and December sign ups for shifts at work were available and the ones that I can do are all full already. So now I am feeling down again. The end of October will be the end of work for me this year. Rather sad that I will miss Christmas. So still not back to me yet.
I do wish that my mood wasn't so easily influenced. Or perhaps it is must still me feeling sensitive and not myself so that is why I am upset. Hey ho. I am not going to get stressed about it, but I am sad.
I have been messing around with autumn decorating today, but it isn't right yet. A few things need to move around and I need to rehome the ornaments that I have moved. My wreath for the front door was horrible - really, I mean it, horrible! - so I bought (more purchases!!!) one from Homesense. It is lovely!
The weather today was bright and sunny and cheery and there was another wonderful moon tonight. So mother nature and I are at one and at peace with each other! I hope it stays the same for the rest of the week. I have 50 allium bulbs to plant.
Tomorrow is another day and I am meeting a friend for coffee so that will be good. We are meeting at a garden centre so I might get some tulip bulbs if I remember.
The laundry is done. Nothing else got done though. Who knew it would take all day to mess around arranging plastic pumpkins and leaves and the like.
I have borrowed some shoes and a handbag for the wedding I am going to next month. That saved some money thankfully. I must look for a good pair of black shoes though it seems.
Nothing else to report. Sausage casserole for dinner tomorrow. I am getting well into the autumn mode!
Seeing as I appear to be in spendthrift mode I might even order a new recipe book tomorrow too!
Oy! I better stop now!
Thank you all for the lovely thoughts you sent me on Friday and over the weekend. They were greatly appreciated and helped to lift my mood.
Right, I am going to stop and get back to being on a blog break! No cuppa has appeared yet, so I need to go and sort that situation out too....
Hope you are all OK!
