More appointments this week, but first a week-end to be home. Still working out how to relax after three months of doing anything but. A lot has changed at home and still needs to, so I'm trying to get settled again. Feels a lot like moving into a new place, even though it isn't. My partner had moved in barely a month before the operation, so he hadn't really settled in properly to begin with, it's back to the start for him. Though with the time away and the changes we both feel like it is much more ours now instead of like he's just moved into what was mine. That's definitely a better thing.
So far they have been, Wilma. There will be some big expenses coming, unfortunately, medicare doesn't cover much of what I need at the moment. Though I'm also working on whittling down my regular expenses some more. There may be some good things to come, in that department.
Sounds good. We're having brief periods of warmth here, a few nice days, then another week of cold and rain. Getting a bit bored with that. I, too, need to get some washing out - curtains, bedding, the sort of stuff that won't go on the inside hangers. Glad you're getting in some gardening.
It's one of my favourite recipes. I hope you do, it's rewarding. I agree with you about cakes and biscuits from the supermarket - they tend to be mostly sugar and not a heck of a lot of flavour. I try to use good quality ingredients, and in most things I make will use raw caster sugar, which is less cloyingly sweet than white sugar.
How is the physio going? I can see your frustration at having too many people involved.
Puffballs are definitely enjoying themselves. I'm hearing them sing a lot more, and Mr Feisty is enjoying his baths again, which he wasn't while we were away, I had to mist him with a spray bottle for any sort of bathing and he wasn't nuts about that. Sir Pecks handled it better, but they are both much happier little birds now. The parrot sounds lovely. They are very intelligent and playful birds.
My lovely man brought me breakfast in bed today, along with coffee. It's amazing that he's up to doing stuff like that a lot more, now. He rarely cooked before the surgery and couldn't drink coffee because it raised his heart rate too much. We are starting to see more and more benefits after all the stress.
I actually quite like a green tea on occasion, myself. Would happily sit and have one with you. :)
