Good Morning Friends,
This is just a short message before Mary and I head away to the hopefully sunny Mediterranean for our 14 day cruise...The taxi is coming to take us down to Southampton to join the cruise we will leave in about 31/2 hours, packing is mostly all done just last min. bits and pieces found lying around.
This has been a busy week. Pam was over on Monday and as it was a Bank Holiday over here our plan to go out and about was abandoned ....the roads, attractions, cafes, etc are always so busy..so we stayed at home which was just as well as we had another three visitors that day...felt a bit like a busy railway station !!
Tuesday not so bad Mary and I just went to Chippenham to get some shopping as Sheila my friend was arriving Wed. Wed. at 12.30 Sheila duly arrived. We collected her at Bath Coach Station and all was well. When Sheila is here it is always a busy chatty time !! Thurs. Margaret and Mitch arrived but I had already said we would go out for lunch which is just what we did, In the late afternoon Peter brought over Mary's case and I went through it and decided what could be left behind and then repacked into the one big case we use between us....Yesterday another busy day. I got us early and started to look out my clothes and get packing them....hopefully everything is there. I have taken the new dresses !! well left one behind !!!!
then Beth and Max arrived,....so....we went out for lunch again !!! Afterwards had to do a bit more shopping for fruit, vegs. etc. to keep sheila going for a few days. I am so lucky to have Sheila stay here with Dee. Otherwise I could not have gone. Dee is a funny wee dog and does not take to people easily but Sheila is one who he took to instantly...very very rare that is....so I have no worries about leaving him. Only hope that Sheila does not find it to quiet all on her own, although I know a few of my Friends are going to come visit and Peter will pop in each day as usual.
Has anyone ever used Quinoa ? I had not heard about it till about a week ago when I saw a lovely salad that used it, I have cut it out and plan to make it when I come home. I managed to find a box of Quinoa yesterday and how to use it, but I was wondering if anyone out there had any recipes that used it....
Well dear friends, I must leave you for at least 14 days...probably a bit more as when we get back Sheila is staying another 4/5 days ...Till I get back always remember that being out of sight does not mean that you are out of my mind and in my prayers....
Love One Another .
