Today has been a quiet day for me, except for a very early start as it was 'flu' jabs at the Medical Centre just after eight o'clock this morning. They have it all so well arranged that the farmer and I were there and back in twenty minutes. It is a bind going and I know that left to his own devices the farmer wouldn't bother, but I always make him go. Anything is better than a dose of 'real' 'flu' - and I know the injection doesn't cover completely, but it is the best they can do and certainly more protection than nothing at all.
I can't bear to go out leaving things to be done so I had to have an early start in order to put the breakfast pots in the dishwasher, make the bed and have my shower.
My only other job of any value has been to make a large blackberry, raspberry and apple crumble to put in the freezer later today ready for our Dutch friends who will be here next week-end. I have done this, also making three small ones for the farmer, myself and friend W - we might as well sample the mixture.
Now, at half-past two in the afternoon (by my
newly-found wrist watch!!) I shall empty the dishwasher and then knit until tea time. A woman's work is never done.
