Arwen

 Storm Arwen is pushing down from the North Sea and we are expecting snow on high ground here in North Wales later today. 
I’ve still not heard from the workman who is relining  my chimney so the mobile oil heaters are the only things keeping me warm so far this winter. 
I will chase him up today .

Yesterday I met a friend for lunch at Bryn Williams at Porth Eirias, which is a water sports centre along the coast. I love the recycled art work which has been commissioned to decorate the Promenade and public areas and especially love this cormorant made from recycled plastic, metal and rubber tyres.


Nights tonight, yesterday I lazily mooched a lovely lunch from the contents of the fridge…half a smoked bacon joint, caramelised in velvet Voiced Linda’s jam, garlic infused long beans and a jacket potato softened with turkey gravy .
Bloody lovely I’ve plated up leftovers for supper at work
The dogs adore the left over gravy sweetened with the jam infused juices from the bacon and have to given their share separately to stop spats.
I’ve been back to the doctors early  this morning ….more double strength antibiotics more urine samples and more blood tests 
Hey ho

  2. Mobile oil heaters are expensive to run. You don't have central heating?
    The bird sculpture is terrific.
    You must drink more water to flush out your bladder.

  3. Hope you can get your heating sorted soon, it's definitely getting wintry now. The cormorant is fantastic. More antibiotics? Oh dear, John, this infection is certainly persistent! xx

    I hope you get the infection cleared up pdq.

  5. That cormorant made from recycled stuff is a great piece of public art. Sorry to hear that the urine infection has not yet been resigned to history.

  6. What can I say? As usual - a lot. Instead of which I am eating a banana to stop the (verbal) diarrhoea (what an awful word to spell!).

    All the best with the water works and its pipelines,

  8. Hoping they get your infection sorted soon. Dragged on far too long. May you have some positive things come your way soon...like a relined chimney and a cozy fire in your fireplace. Take care.

  9. Not a good time of year to be without your log burner, I hope things warm up for you soon. This urine infection is really lingering this time, I hope you can get on top of it once and for all.

    Alan's super-sonically loud cough is back again, it's early this year it's usually January when it begins. It's that loud his neighbour phoned him last night to see if he was okay!!

  11. The world needs more public art, (double check the spelling on that) and being made from recycled materials is a wonderful bonus for all. Take care, stay warm.

  12. I liked your colorful description of your leftover feast! You do have a way with words, John! :)

    What a wonderful cormorant! I, too, love art created from imaginative folks.
    Hope the chimney liner is soon sorted and safe.
    Yum! What delicious flavors you combined and the leftovers will certainly make a delightful dinner at work.
    Bother you're still in need of more antibiotics and hope this batch knocks the infection out. Our older son always had to have a 3rd bottle of antibiotics for his ear infections. 3rd time's a charm?

    Hugs!

  15. That cormorant is good - very good indeed.

    I know you make light of it but I knew you were not better - never mind rushing about - take it easy and keep warm.

    Love the artwork, though. And recycled? Fab.

  18. Sounds like a meal fit for an American Thanksgiving :).

  19. I salivated as I read your lunch menu and I don't even eat meat. You do eat well! Garlic infused long beans sound delish!

  20. You’re managing to eat like a king, AND eat healthily - that’s style! I hope the various pipes all get fixed very soon. Painful and expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can't believe there were any leftovers at all.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have looked and I wonder if eating yoghurt may help you and cider vinegar-as you are taking quite a lot of antibiotics x

  23. You are getting good followup on the infection and that's important. Your meals always sound so delicious. I share with my dog too. The sculpture is quite impressive. I agree with flis.

  24. Good luck with all the various pipe works. B

  25. It seems as if your infection has developed some resistance to the antibiotic.

  27. I'm sending good wishes, and I hope that soon that infection that's being so persistent will clear up.

  28. That cormorant is excellent. Would love to see the other works. Can’t believe you’re STILL on antibiotics.

  29. That IS a very cool piece of art! Sorry you haven't been feeling your best. I'm glad you got to the doctor, though.

  30. Waterwork infections are the pits. I used to get them as a younger woman frequently.. I have avoided them recently which makes me grateful. I hope this round of AB's kick it over. Love the artwork. Cormorants are wonderful birds they sit on the rocks here wafting their wings dry. Loved the sound of your dinner.
