It’s almost midday and I’ve just eaten Brunch
It’s cold today.
The dogs are knackered after their walk and have curled themselves into the kitchen reading chair to sleep
I’m thinking of what I’d like to do today.
There’s not much on in the cinema I fancy, perhaps with the exception of Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley.
Ive not arranged with any friends to meet.
I don’t feel that social today….
Time for another strong coffee bag coffee, with a splash of algave nectar
And more time at the kitchen table with my hands warmed by the coffee cup
Ps…I couldn’t be arsed going to the cinema.
So I went to Sainsbury’s instead and bought a chicken, two reduced priced candlesticks a load of healthy food and some fleece jogging pants and sweat shirt that would double up as Pjs.
I had a mini row with a modern parent who let her children climb over the supermarket trolleys and did my best Edith Evan’s impersonation, by enunciating loudly “ Is THIS a supermarket or a child’s playing area ? “
The mother wanted to take me on but thought better of it seeing I had my devil-may- care gravy stains on my t shirt.
Bring it on sister, I thought .
I’m tidying the house, doing some washing and am going to hoover and clean up before walking the girls again. Only then will I don my new joggers
Select shit on the iPlayer
And enjoy what’s left of my sunday
Good morning John. Some days are just meant for hunkering down and doing naff all.ReplyDelete
Oh dear, I see it's past midday already. Time to cast off this suave dressing gown and get dressed.Delete
It’s 7 pm now, and I’ve done bugger allDelete
More time at the kitchen table with your 'algarve nectar' and coffee sounds a good way to spend a cold Sunday. Perhaps a bit of blog hopping too, that's what I'm up to ... yours was first in the queue :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you sue xDelete
I did, I didDelete
I’ve been watching the Australian Open tennis all morning, drinking coffee and watching live stuff on my phone …… naughty Jackie ! I’m just glad I’m not the only one ! XXXXReplyDelete
Lazy bitches arnt we?Delete
If only the Algarve really could bottle it's nectarReplyDelete
Some days are just made for doing nothing much at all. Enjoy yours. It's not being lazy, it's looking after yourself. xxReplyDelete
Just seen the update. Made me laugh. I can just imagine you with your Edith Evans voice. I must admit, I'm guilty of similar. If I hold the door for someone, or move out of the way during these social distancing times and get no acknowledgement, I say, in a loud voice "You're welcome!" Oh, Victor Meldrew is alive and well. xxDelete
I do too, I always mouth THANK YOU theatricallyDelete
I've had a cup of tea with common honey earlier-Whenever I've been under the weather I bought Manuka honey and even paid £30 for one that should be more full price-it was delicious-I had lost about one stone in weight before having appendicitis treated-I've also used it on my terriers-Today we have been in the stream,I tested my repair on my wellies and successfull so far xReplyDelete
I hope you feel better soon dear flisDelete
In a bucket?ReplyDelete
Certainly you must mean agave nectar ... Algarve is a place in Portugal and definitely not a nectar!ReplyDelete
Geez ... It's Sunday ... Stay home, read a book, save money and do something that doesn't cost you anything! Just enjoy not having to go to work!!
A good update ... You did go to the grocery store, so that's good! Now ... Just enjoy the rest of the day! Relax!!Delete
I fell asleep for the latter part of the afternoonDelete
I must say it sounds as if you enjoyed the first part of the day with great abandon.ReplyDelete
Tis nice at times to have a ‘bugger all to do day’ old lad, sounds that even with your artistic gravy stains you were quite the diva in t’ supermarket, good on you.ReplyDelete
I’m very Mariah CareyDelete
Lovely candlesticks - very stylish! I love the photos of Dorothy and Mary huddled on the chair. They have the right idea- too cold to do much except hunker down. Enjoy the rest of your day .ReplyDelete
You too sue xDelete
My Sunday is just beginning and it is cold and snowy out so I plan to stay in and read today. I have a good book that's demanding my attention!ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoyed your relaxing day!
I watched tv, followed some documentaries and fell asleep for 4 hoursDelete
Yes, a highlight of any day: Selecting shit on an iPlayer. Enjoy the new candlesticks and joggers. (What’s a strong coffee bag coffee?)ReplyDelete
I’m am getting attached to coffee bagsDelete
Which are used exactly like tea bags
They give your coffee the huge kick you sometimes need
I’ll have to check that out.Delete
If you can’t get any tell me and I’ll post someDelete
it absolutely enrages me when people put their kids in the trolley not the seat area by the handles. 1 they would sue the supermarket if their kid fell out but the other one Number 2 that pisses me off, is they put them in there with their shoes on and think of all the yuck they could be stamping in the area where the next person will put their food. it is truly repugnantReplyDelete
Out with anger……..Delete
In with love………
Beware irate men with gravy stains!ReplyDelete
It’s been said before and it will be said againDelete
It seems like every week I reprimand unattended children in a store with a stern voice.ReplyDelete
That’s my gal/ boyDelete
Seeing the dogs curled up together in that chair warms my heart! Love the new candlesticks! (I assume those are the new ones?)ReplyDelete
Yes 3£ Each, Sainsbury’s xDelete

I survived a few grocery shops in the past with my two boys nestled at the bottom of the cart. As long as I gave them a rice cake each, I barely heard a peep out of them. Even so, rambunctious children crawling in and out of carts would get on my last nerve as well. Other people's children...ReplyDelete
These were in one of the outdoor sheds filled with trolleysDelete
Perfect day, aside for children running amok sans a responsible parent. Sigh. Love your response to that. Dame Edith lives on. :)ReplyDelete
Algave nectar in coffee? I prefer Italian Sweet Cream!
Just a squirt takes the edge offDelete
They should be on leads if the parents can't be arsed to be arsed-if you don't mind me saying xReplyDelete
And now I believe I will go warm up my coffee...ReplyDelete
And just like that……Delete
The cold weather puts an unpleasant damper on things. Hot coffee is perfect on a day like today. Even the dogs want to curl up and stay warm!ReplyDelete
They are on my lap as I write thisDelete
It is a parent's responsibility to teach (and model) civilized behavior to their children. Hope this one doesn't complain when the little darlings become total delinquents. Glad you're having a relaxing day.ReplyDelete
I’ve slept for four hours on the couch and now feel somewhat disorientatedDelete
I think it’s Saturday
Ah feeling feisty today, are we? Enjoy the rest of your day and night, Gentle John.ReplyDelete
I think you are right, I am ripe for an argument lolDelete
Get vibes which suggest you are not at your best today dear one.ReplyDelete
I’m brighter now pat, I think I was knackered , just woke on the couch thinking it was Monday morningDelete
6:57pm: "Just woke up on the couch thinking it was Monday morning.ReplyDelete
7:00pm (a few comments above): "I think it's Saturday"
What are you on? Bollocks Beer?
Oh for fucks sake !Delete
You are obviously the same commentator that forensically reviews my posts daily to criticise the smallest of comments
Grow up why don’t you
Why waste your time so very much
John emanates love and happiness and may unwind after caring for his patients at The Hospice with a little gin xDelete
Lol flis !Delete
I don’t need your defence though your comment amused me greatly.
No gin tonight just a white wine with a neighbour …I’m earmarking a large gin tomorrow lol
It was, I felt, a harmless light-hearted comment. Profound apologies if I offended but my goodness 'aint you a prickly one? (And no, what you say is obvious about me is far off, ie incorrect. This was my first comment, and last)Delete
I doubt it will be your lastDelete
And I KNOW it wasn’t your firstDelete
It makes me sad that parents allow their children to act that way in public. And of course, if the children got hurt, who would she blame? The store management of course.ReplyDelete
