It's been a week since I went on holiday from school, and it's only now that I am starting to feel a bit rested.
My body and brain still insist on getting up at 5:30am, as I have been doing all year, but yesterday, for the first time, I managed to go back to bed and have more sleep.

Even as I type this, I feel the call of the warm bed, the soft mattress and my gently snoring beloved.  Awww, she drools so prettily onto the pillow. 

Pain free
Yesterday was the first day she has been pain-free for the last two weeks.  I refused to allow her to do any work at all.  I even made dinner.  Actually, I quite enjoyed it.  I made a chicken casserole, with leeks, garlic and plenty of carrots.  I mixed the chicken with sesame oil, soy sauce, flour and turmeric in a plastic bag, and let it sit for 30 minutes.  Browned the diced chicken in a mixture of oil and butter, deglazed with some white wine, then added in some leeks, softened in oil, and the diced carrots.  Sliced some courgettes lengthwise, and fried in Olive oil.  Served with some boiled new potatoes (mine had butter on them, but none for her)

I quite enjoyed it, but from the non-enthusiastic comments of my beloved and son (back last night from Hawkes Bay) it wasn't as good as we are used to.

I don't really care, my priority is to get my beloved as pain free as possible, because when we get on that plane next week, I know she will suffer if her back is the least bit painful.

I'm going back to bed, for at least another hour of blissfull sleep.


  1. How will you blog on the plane, and from Scotland?

  2. I know, I'm terribly worried about it.
    Maybe the nice pilot will let me use his computer?
    I'll try and use my daughter's computer in Scotland, but it all depends on my beloved. I've got a sneaking suspicion that she'll look on unnecessary computer use during the holidays as a bad thing.

  3. On second thoughts with the images you will be searching for they may call in the constabulary (procurator fiscal?). It won't be a good look if you are escorted back to your beloved and your daughter by the men in blue. This would definitely confirm their suspicions.

  4. Thanks for caring TC.

    I'll be careful. I'll use your name.

  5. Twisted, we could use the universal mind to send thoughts.
