Any thought of ringing the doctor's surgery was banished when kind friends from somewhere on The Continent arrived and this happened:
At long last: love!! My new oven and hot plates are in situ at last. So far I have roasted a lovely organic chicken and some vegetables(potatoes, parsnip, pumpkin, sweet potato, onion and carrot with some sadly insipid gravy- I was too hungry to wait for browning to happen) and in the morning we will have two sorts of scones for morning tea: sweet and savoury!! Then I am making something with rhubarb and something lemony and a bit later on something chocolatey!!! I am in cooking heaven!!
The chemist gave me some saline spray for me ears. She's not bonkers, she thinks my ear ache is actually my sinuses again, which makes sense. So I have been spraying the salty water up my nose, and surprisingly, I feel a little better!!! I shall try for an appointment in the morning. I have no other appliances languishing anywhere!!
Sadly, my new sewing machine has to be packed off to, possibly, Mrs Reno's dad to be looked at. The Labradors' Sewing Machine Incident did not pan out well. But look at the two of then snuggled up together on the couch!! I can't stay cross, though I am having a tiny Georgette Heyer Decline, just a teeny tiny one. I am sure once I have the contents of an ocean up my nose I will feel much better!!!
