Bleh

I have a bleh bug which made me very tired this weekend.  I BET it was given to me by the annoying woman in the Coop, blowing her nose on a damp tissue she was holding in her blue plastic gloves before cutting up the cheese, dratther.

We went to philmophlegm's work summer ball on Saturday evening. Gorgeous setting in a restaurant looking out over Fistral beach in Newquay, so the views were fabulous.  Sadly, we were both feeling too worn out to really enjoy it much.

Mollydog overdid it , chasing rabbits at top speed on our evening walk yesterday, and ended up with her bad leg very stiff and achey.  We had some left over cat Metacam,  so I gave her enough of it to do all 6 cats - according to the instructions, a cat=a 4kg dog, and Molls is 26kg.  I should probably get some proper dog painkillers, as it's bound to happen again: that leg is very slowly getting worse.

Diana Wynne Jones House of Many Ways has given me a new appreciation of hydrangeas.  We have a rather large one outside the front window which I'd always planned to remove one day. I've never been much of a fan of them.  But I think I'll keep it now, as she has helped me see them in a new way.  I may even plant another.   Apart from that I didn't enjoy it as much as some of her other books.  Though, that said, I don't think I am really the designated audience for it; it seemed specifically aimed at a younger audience to me, more so than most of her other work.

I deduce from the rather too detailed descriptions of washing up, laundry, cooking and similar household chores, that DWJ may have a young relative who has been brought up with a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine, and has no idea how it might be possible to live without such things.  I found that a little tedious, but then I know how to handwash, wash up and cook. I suppose it may have more period curiousity to a younger audience that genuinely don't know that sort of thing.
