And I'm not sure why!
While we were away we had house sitters and thy did the most fabulous job and when we came home the house was immaculate and they had made bread and left 3 jars of home made marmalade, 2 happy dogs and one somewhat chubbier ( incredibly happy) dog! I had done a lot of clothes washing by hand on holiday so only had a small amount to wash once we got home... or so I thought! I've got three HUGE loads of washing to do, a lawn to cut ( about 4 acres!) which I have now done. A cottage and water pump with no electricity (wah!!), a duck to take to the vet, a shop to get in, dinner to make, and loads of bits and bobs.
A visit from our lovely electrician later and he discovered that the electricity had been turned off at the main switch at the cottage ( that I didn't even know existed!) so that was easy - thankfully there had been a lot of rain while we were away because without the pump on the water troughs don't get filled. In the process of all this I lost one of the beautiful black pearl ear rings lloyd bought me from Rarotonga. I thought how could it have fallen out? Then I realised that the only time could have been when I took off the ear defenders I had on while mowing the grass when the plumber arrived. I retraced my steps back to the mower and grovelled around in the grass and guess what? I found it!! How amazingly lucky was that.
One load of washing drying, one in machine, duck back from vets, foot infected again - bad news, may be into the bone - 2 weeks of antibiotics, not easy giving them to a duck! and then a wait and see sort of thing.
It's 4.20pm and I havent even had any lunch yet.
I'll need another holiday to get over today. heehee
Tomorrow I'm doing fun stuff though, I bought a wee plastic green-house thing that I can put all my seed pots into and it can stay on the deck. So I'll be making lots of paper pots in the morning then planting out all the seeds for our summer veggies. I love doing this.
