R is away. I am missing him already after our lovely weekend together. Roll on Friday.
Someone who rarely pays compliments, did today. A really big one - 'what ever meat did you use--it was so tender...you must give me the recipe...it was just delicious. Makes all the effort worthwhile.
The bathroom is finished. The plumber was no bother really - but having people in the house working means that they are another set of bods to think about watering and checking all is well with every now and again. He and his crew are done. They have done a great job but the peace and quiet (and less tea to make) is welcome.
