I am typing this while I play Youtube videos and listen to Kylie. It is unkind that she is called The Singing Budgie, but I think part of her charm is that she isn't an Adele (see, I do know some modern singers) or a Dusty Springfield. I always feel I can sing along quite happily reaching all the notes. The Pop Princess (!!) has been home to be Hall of Famed.
At the weekend there was a very noisy party over the road, lasting until after midnight, and it was impossible to sleep. On Monday morning my letterbox was missing. I think it had been thrown on the road. I found it, slightly coming apart, on the high nature strip where some kind person had rescued it. I cobbled it together again.
This has been the House Of Poorliness, there's a thing going around and I had/have it. Mainly it is a headache, fever and sleepiness. I always know when I am poorly because I can't eat. I have had rice cakes with a schmear of Vegemite and tonight I had pretend fried rice. And a banana. Look at the beautiful banana. It is the first banana of the season. I shared it with Peri and Gilly.
And so I have been sleeping, almost non-stop, for the last two and a half days. Luckily The Labradors are good sleepers. It hasn't helped that the weather has been sultry for a few days either. I cut up some chicken breast and added it to their breakfast. Peri dives in nose first and unerringly finds all the chicken. Lorelai Gilmore uses her nose to spread her breakfast far and wide so she can eat all the best chicken parts first. Then the rest is hoovered up.
Unfortunately sleeping is not very conducive to cooking, one shouldn't cook whilst asleep: it could be dangerous. So no recipe for Tuesday. Instead, be charmed by Peri and Gilly posing for a close up. Peri's eyes are pretty much better now, she still has an itchy nose. Gilly can fit her whole self into a square photo. She's tiny!!
While I have been using the internet for the last half hour or so, Google Reader wanted my phone number and then Google Search insisted I upgrade (and I think they are using the term incorrectly in this case) to Google+. I shan't do either. I am sure Google will go on without me. I have lots of blog reading to catch up on. Maybe tomorrow....
And now I shall make a cup of tea, take all my tablets and then a lot more sleep is called for.
