Heh in fairness, lots of bloods are routine and not because someone is poorly...and if only two tubes, the most it would be is 12mls I had 14 taken for clotting investigations and they rang to say they'd fallen out of the motorbike pannier and were squashed on the A40 and could I please go back in...even that 28 tubes was less than 100mls. Mind you, you prolly still need a beer to recuperate.
I think I might go to the pub for cider and burger, so over things being everywhere and we have our first proper visitors this weekend. At least the walls and staircase have dried and you can only see a stain if you look directly at it. The best thing about today was the delivery of my beautiful gentlemans wardrobe - ironically for my frocks. Still has the original shelf labels too, things like shirts, pyjamas and sundries. It's lush.
I actually think I'm going a bit loopy...and not just from the sealant smell of the stuff D is putting on the inside garage walls to start the process of making a Pain Cave.
Last night we went to The Mulberry (Chris Evans owns it) and it was lovely. Often these celeb owned places are not much cop but it was great food and really cosy. Best thing was D's mum and twin sister - we were there for their 70th birthday - not being the same age. For some reason Auntie Vera is older by several years. Ahem.
Have a good day all, no doubt I'll be doing something exciting and house related, like cleaning Venetian blinds Before they get put back up...!
we haz a main guest room painted in Martian Magic...this makes me inordinately happy, as does my having 11 days off now. Huzzah! Next week new window in what will be our new room, then the rest of that can be done too.
Hope everyone is well and happy. I have only bought one crimbo pressie (normally all done & wrapped by now!). Am failure.
