Ladies, I have managed to pick up another cold. As I write I am sniffing and blowing and coughing and sighing. Hubby Biscuit says it's because I got lots of my hair [as in never had my hair this short, ever!] chopped off on Friday and the cold has found it's way in via an exposed neck. So having never quite making it to 100% well I've taken a wee baby step back again. I say a baby step as it is all a matter of perspective. Yes I feel god awful again but so what, Christmas is on it's way and that means I can justify sitting down sewing and knitting all those gifts I have in mind.
The washing machine has been showing signs of dying the last few weeks and this morning it would not switch on. It has obviously lost it's battle. Ah well, I have a large kitchen sink, a bath and arms with which to scrub. It'll either get mended or be replaced and in the big scheme of things it's no real biggy. As I say the approach of the ching-ching of jingle bells can ward off pretty much anything even kitchen appliances dying [my gas oven went on the blink a couple of weeks ago too, luckily I have a second electric one].
So I say Que Sera Sera!
I admit I am finding it easy to be philosophical as this Friday we are off here...

...for a couple of nights and it will do me the world of good. A bit of relaxation before December brings it's usual full steam ahead activity. A break way from home to take some deep breaths [I hope my nose will allow this] and to look at the stars without the pollution of street lights. We have holidayed there once before a couple of January's ago and I was stunned by the night sky.
It'll be difficult not to arrive home feeling rejuvenated and refreshed on Sunday.
It's either the thought of this cottage or there being something to that old adage - 'get a haircut, take a load of your mind'. Either way I am glad I'm taking it all on the chin.
