What Ya doing?

I just cant be arsed today.
I'm sitting on the couch with my chicken beanie on and have to say that I look remarkably like Jenny Murray from radio 4 .
I wonder if she slobs around with a knitted chicken on her head?
I bet she does.
How's your 27th going?
What are you doing right now?

    2. We've been hugely lucky. Been helping out friends with labour and beds - absolutely heartbreaking seeing our village like this; but hugely proud of how everyone is rallying round to help. My husband is even more my hero than usual.

  16. Just survived a beautiful swim in the ocean. Got caught in a horrible rip. Finally after my eldest son was worried about how far out I was. I managed to get out of the rip, got dumped by a huge wave and thrown into my son. Almost broke my neck and lost my prescription sunglasses. Just another day at the beach in Australia. No sharks today at least.....

  17. Love the chapeau! Just got in from a few errands, one included a purchase of champagne. And a new calendar for the upcoming year. Now its cold out (-38 celcius including the wind chill) and I am thinking I need a chicken hat.

  19. Sitting on the veranda reading blogs and picking at a blister I got on my thumb from raking the washed up seagrass off the beach. Oh - also admiring the view of the tidy (for now) beach. It is a gorgeous day here in Belize.

  30. Cleaning carpets, doing laundry, washing dishes, putting together two new bookshelves, all while watching the Carolina Panthers lose their first game of the season. This is the first time Miss Chef and I have had more than a single day off together in 6 months or more, and we had to take full advantage. Oh, and it's about 23C and humid, which makes it all much less pleasant than it sounds.

  33. You know how some people seem to get the same thing for Christmas every year? Well with me, it's pharyngytis - when everything in your throat swells up. Not fun. I lost my voice on Monday, and while I was at work was in no pain, didn't feel ill, then last night the roof of my mouth started feeling raw, and by this morning my right ear and throat were painful and I had one hamster cheek. Now trying to gather the strength to get to bed and hope I've dosed myself up enough to get shot of it.

    Still, keeps my mind off the fact that we've got to take Pumpkin to the vet for a full teeth descale on Tuesday. She doesn't like travelling at the best of times - I dread to think what level of dirty protest this visit will bring about.

  37. Right now I'm idling by the computer after an early but already hot dog walk. I've got the sprinkler going and the timer set so I can get everything watered before the day begins. It is going to be 41C here today, which is 105F or a bit more. You'll be glad to hear, though, John that it won't be humid! :P Later we'll be hiding in the aircon, and I've got a list of fun indoor things to do like TTouch the dogs, paint the bookcover for my latest novel, and also some not so fun things like vacuum the floors, all while hoping like hell that we don't get a call out to a bushfire! :)

  39. I just watched a couple of episodes of A Place To Call Home and now I am watching a re -run of Downton Abbey while I decide what kind of tea to have,
    I think the area in NY where I live is about to get hit with a big storm .. I might have to go food shopping in the am.
    Otherwise, it has been a super quiet and relaxed weekend.
    But I have hat envy.

  42. Had our Christmas morning today as the spouse worked Friday and Saturday...wonderful breakfast with all present and a warm and cozy tree time with lots of books and chocolate gifties to unwrap. Spent the rest of the day on the couch with a vicious migraine that snuck up out of nowhere. We set up our tree Christmas eve then leave it up 12 days. That hat adds a certain degree of crazy to your aspect I think!

    Goodness me! Indeed you DO look like Jenni Murray. It's the peering over the specs that does it. Isn't she a 'Dame' now? Or if she isn't there can't be much longer to wait - for both her and yourself.

    What am I doing right now? Well, I've just decided to buy a ticket for tomorrow's Lotto. I stopped doing it (Lotto, that is. Still do Thunder and Euro) when they put up the ticket price to £2 a shot. However, the current rollover of £42 mill is not to be sniffed at. (Animal charities get ready! A windfall is coming your way!) But only the one ticket, mind!

  45. Do you really want to know? I played with the dogs in the early part of the day, then sat on my behind, indoors, in front of the fan, through the hottest part. It was 32 degrees C here and will be 35 today. Sticky heat and I are not compatible! I love your beenie :)

  47. It's 9.40pm on the 28th here - yesterday I binge watched Mapp and Lucia on video while picking all the food.
    Today, we were back at work - I cleared all the remaining Christmas stock which I record and make up a list of what is going into each box to stick on the outside. A lesson learned in our first couple of years. :) Then I set up a sales table, a display of things people can take on summer holiday...all in all it was a lovely, relaxing day with just my beloved and a few customers. A change is as good as a rest, and a change is mostly the only option I get ;-)

  48. We had a lovely day. Went to coffee at one of the few coffee shops open, did our annual trip to the local rocky shoreline and walked around a flat calm sea. Home and prepared dinner for guests. enjoyed their company. Read your blog (thank you) and now ready for bed. Temperature around 26 (78 to you Brits) and perfect. Aren't we lucky.
    Love the hat, BTW - it will keep you toasty warm. Waiting to hear the blog we were promised .... you are a tease!!

  57. Catching up on 8 days of your blog. Middle son and his lovely partner had twin baby boys and I have been going back and forth from hospital to their place (they have a cat and a wood stove that need tending) and home, and off to our other kids and grandkids homes for Christmas. I feel like a wind up toy that is winding down....Christmas cake for breakfast-that should give me some temporary energy. All the best to you and the Prof.
