Mundane in the membrane
I haven’t had much to blog about recently. Life is fairly mundane just now with the usual day-to-day domestic chores taking precedence.
Baby has a cold. She has the rotten bug that we have all had and it is making her miserable. She is a coughing, snotty, clingy creature. Poor darling. I remember how horrid it feels.
My ipod is pretty much lost I would say. I did put up some notices around Appledore but I don’t hold out much hope. I guess if it’s meant to come back to me then it will. I am still mad at my credit card company. I think the worse part about it is that it’s Marks and Spencer’s &More card. I trusted M&S, they are an established good old British company but I feel let down by them. I am keeping my money in cash under the mattress from now on. I won’t let the Big Bastard Corporation steal any more money from me!
On the upside I adore my cleaner, well not her personally, although she is very nice, but just having her makes my life so much easier. She comes for 3 hours once a week and it really helps me to keep on top of the cleaning rather than feel as though I am drowning in it. Sometimes it becomes so overwhelming that I can’t do it at all and just go out rather than face it!! It's a joy having someone come and do a deep clean once a week.
I am having a business meeting this week with a potential partner. He has access to many beautiful and very old fabrics that he would like me to sell. We would then split the proceeds. I’m looking forward to meeting him and seeing the fabrics he is bringing with him!
Jasmine has learnt to play the guitar this week. Last Sunday she went off to visit her gran, the grumpy old woman to you, and came back having learnt how to play the guitar. How cool is that? She can now play 'The house of the rising sun' and 'Walk away' by Franz Ferdinand in less than a week. The girl's a natural!
I met a friend in town this week. She has just split up with her partner of over 20 years. They have one child. She has not been happy in her relationship for years and she has just taken the courageous step to leave and live on her own with her child. I have never seen her looking so happy and radiant. The move was obviously a positive one for her and so far things are very amicable with her ex-partner, both of them trying to do what is best for their daughter. I hope things work out for them all.
I’m baking today. Leek and gruyere quiche and possibly some sort of cake, I don’t know which one yet but a little peek inside the pages of Nigella’s delicious book will probably inspire me.
