Getting your just desserts
It has turned very middle over the past couple of day, but that is not set to last with a cold blast coming in towards the end of the week. I personally prefer the cold frosty days and if we can add some snow into the mix that would make me even happier.
There has been a media storm going on in Warwick for a few days now and it is over posters put up all around Warwick.
national press have heard seen the posters. They say a woman scorned is a dangerous person to cross and clearly Graham crossed the barrier and Linda has gotten her revenge. At first it was thought this was an advertising ploy by the company on the bottom of the poster, but the company who did the posters have said that Linda is a real person and she did have the posters made.
Have you been cheated on and what did you do to get your revenge?
I am not a vengeful person and so not sure I would have the guts to do what this lady has done. I think you do have to be careful, but on the other hand go girl go. One thing is certain, it has not done Warwick any harm or the company who made the poster.
I still have not begun my cross stitch, I have been far to busy playing with the family tree. It has been all absorbing and addictive. The joy has been finding birth certificates and marriage information of family members. Yesterday pretty much my whole day, was taken up with doing the tree before my 14 days free trial ended. Having gotten all the information together, I then closed the trial down because £119 for 12 months is a lot of money to pay. I can understand why people would pay it, but for me it is to much.
So here we are on Tuesday and it was a mild dull start. I did not wake up until 7.30 am and that was only because Keith was stirring. We had our first cup of tea of the day before getting up and taking Paddy for his morning stroll.
That dog sure knows how to sleep, he never gets out of bed until he hears me getting dressed. After feeding him and Marmite, Keith and I had our breakfast and then the days chores began. Firstly I went and did a laundry wash and had a natter with our neighbour. The laundry is always a great place for a chat and usually where you see some of the other winter boaters. I wanted to clean the saloon flue and fill the water tank, so with Paddy needing his weight checked, I got Keith to walk Paddy to the vets and I got on with cleaning the saloon flue again. Thankfully it was not to bad this week. After putting the brushes away, I then got the hosepipe out, connected it to the tap which is up the path from our boat. To fill our water tank, I have to climb onto the bow of our boat, because the water tank opening is on the port side of the boat. Hosepipe in the tank and water turned on, I left it to fill away, which I got on with hoovering the boat out and washing the floors. Keith and Paddy were back from the vets and Paddy's weight has stayed stable, which is good news.
Lunch today was the remainder of the Chicken and Banana Curry, which was lovely. We had fresh fruit salad with yogurt for pudding. This whole eating healthy lifestyle does make you feel better, but there is absolutely no reason why we cannot have treats as well.
With no other jobs to do, the afternoon will be spent doing very little and who knows I may even do some cross stitch.
