Sunday

A good old ding-dong of an argument yesterday on my post - nothing to get nasty about but just a nice, chatty argument in my front room.  I do wish you could all have been  there to join in the fun.

Back to normal today as I am sitting here, post lunch, and trying to think of something to put on today's post.  The four of us have been out to The Golf Club for lunch - they were very accommodating and supplied U with a small bowl of crisps and a bowl of pasta and refused to charge.  She ate every morsel.  They also had a good selection of both vegetarian and vegan food on offer.   So we all had a very nice lunch.   As my guests then had a very long (over two hundred miles) journey home they needed to be well fortified.

It is lovely to have guests but I now find it tiring, so this evening I am taking it easy and intend to have an early night before Book Group in the morning.

We are now   nicely into January - Twelfth Night is tomorrow - and the weather is mild and set to continue so through the next couple of weeks.   I keep remembering 'The Beast from the East' last year so must keep up my stocks of food in the freezer in case of such an emergency again this year. I'll be back again tomorrow.

Twelfth night used to be the biggest celebration of the lot before Cromwell spoilt the party.

I went back and looked at the previous comments and yes you did have a ding dong discussion going on. Interesting post and comments.

It's good to throw a little petrol on the fire occasionally, it catches them unaware. I quite often play 'Devil's advocate', then sit back and watch the fun.

'The Beast from the East' won't come back. Climate Change is like an experienced War General; it changes its tactics from war to war, from place to place. After the fires in Australia, we don't know what it has in store for other places. We can only try to guess.

I love visitors, but as I am used to living on my own during the week (and have been doing so for 10 years now), I am also very good on my own.
Your meal out sounds good, and I hope you will see the family again before too long.

When the weather turns mild at this time of year you are lulled into a false sense of security - you do right to stock up the freezer it could and probably will change.
Glad you enjoyed time with your visitors - our house is quiet now and I am slowly getting it back to normal.

When we get used to living alone visitors can be very tiring, even when they are welcome and we enjoy their company.
I am usually prepared for most eventualities and don't like to run short of any of the essentials just in case the weather turns nasty on us.
Enjoyed your ding-dong.

I had a couple of visitors for 5 days over Christmas, who said they went home refreshed and relaxed. Trouble is, they say they need to visit more often and hope to see me over several relaxing weekends in the future!
I'm so used to living on my own - is it awful of me to want them to back off?
It wasn't relaxing for me with all the shopping, cooking, bedding to wash (2 beds) and my peace shattered. I think I'm cranky in my old age!

So nice to have visitors, but also nice to get back into a normal routine again afterwards. Glad you had a nice visit with them. I read through the previous bog post and comments, and got to thinking... have we forgotten what a HUGE blessing it is to have an available, accessible, wide variety of foods to choose from every day? Enough to be able to make choices about what we'll eat? Oh, how I wish 2020 will bring about change in society. Maybe we can learn to bicker less and appreciate more?

First, I want to complement this site administrator for creating this platform for us to express our feelings. Herpes is a serious and recurring disease which can't be cured through drugs or injections by the American doctors but the best way to deal with herpes is by taking natural herbs medicine from DR. Obela the greatest herbalist doctor in the world and is only few American doctors that know about this herbal medicine from Dr Obela .. I have read about Dr Obela the great herbalist doctor from African who can cure disease with his powerful herbal medicine. for the people suffering from the following diseases, Herpes,HIV/Aids, SARS virus Cancer, Also, Hepatitis, Diabetes, Hpv, Infections ETC should contact him for his herbal medicine because i am a living testimony and i was cured of herpes. Although, i sent him what he requested and he sent me his medicine through DHL courier delivery company which i took for 10 days and today when i went for test i was tested herpes negative. you can reach him through his Whatsapp number +2347084171950 or email: drobelaspellhome@gmail.com

FINALLY FREE FROM HERPES VIRUS
I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had Herpes virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR ADIGBA cured them from Herpes, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR ADIGBA because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact DR ADIGBA via dradigba@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via +2348077875210. he is good too to cure all type of disease and virus.
1 HIV cure
2 cancer
3 diabetes
4 hepatitis
5 herpes.
