Quite an eventful day today. First of all it was the designated day for my flu jab and T and S had promised to take me down to the Medical Centre. They turned up five minutes early - I was planning to be sitting at the bottom of the drive on Priscilla but they drove up before I even got the garage door open. And - good friends that they are - they neglected to tell me that they had chosen to have their jabs early so had no need to go down to the surgery but were going especially to take me. They came back for a coffee on our return and stayed for an hour, so the day started with a nice chat.
After they had gone I prepared the sausage supper for my visitors and popped it in the oven an hour before their planned arrival time. Within a short time the whole house smelled divine of sausage casserole and I must say it tasted good too.
We spent the afternoon chatting. They had driven almost across the country - a long way = to see me and they needed a good rest before their return journey. Very kindly both of them cleared the table, stacked the dishwasher, tidied everything away and then made a cup of tea for us all so I had nothing to do. (neither of them drink coffee). Last night I had a very bad night and so I had a job keeping awake all afternoon. I was a bit the same today but I had warned them and instructed them to keep chatting so that I didn't drop off.
They went about five o'clock and it was only after they had gone that I realised that the ham sandwiches and Birthday Cake I had intended to give them for tea were still unopened. I have sent them an apologetic e mail but I really was sorry - it would have been lovely to share a slice of cake with them both.
Now, at half past nine, I am having a really early night. I can hardly keep awake. Only rarely do I sleep badly but last night I still had not dropped off at 2am, so got up and had a couple of Weetabix. Can't remember getting back into bed!
Quiet day tomorrow. After a busy day with my dear friends I need a quiet day to recuperate but I did so enjoy their company.
