Feeling better.

           Thank you all for your lovely comments I am now feeling a lot better than I was.I still have a rotten cough and my voice is not quite back yet but I am tons better.I have even got those filthy windows washed today well I did the insides and son did the outsides for me bless him,he made quite a good job of them as well so think that can be his job now.I also gave my kitchen a good clean today took everything off the shelves and out of cupboards and cleaned them all, polished the wood, washed the floor,clean tablecloth on and cooked dinner at the same time,PHEW no wonder I feel tired tonight but it does all look nice.After been poorly and  not doing much for a few days you soon get tired doing things or is that me ?I hope I sleep better tonight now.
        Iv started back at slimming world and ready to start loosing the weight I have put on,it is not a diet SW its just changing your eating habits, cooking from scratch and for me not dipping into the biscuits and sweets,I would not have a weight problem if I didnt have a sweet tooth.I love cooking and trying new recipies so its not a problem to cook and hubby likes new meals as he calls them,so its head down no sweets and bic bics in the house if the boys come I can soon nip to the village shop with them for thier treats.I have done this before and know it is only me that stops me loosing weight so keep an eye out on here to see my progress.
   Im still having problems trying to post photos on here dont know what Im doing wrong I have tried all kinds of things,I know a lot of you have had the same problem if you have managed to do any tips for me please.
    Bye for now night night,love Jill xx

      Hi bloggy friends,I didn't sleep well last night coughed and spluttered like something demented!!! I drove into town earlier and got some more lemsips,a Vick's nasal spray, throat lozenges and more tissues nice soft ones for my poor nose.I decided to just chill for the afternoon and forget about the jobs in and out of the house after all nobody is going to notice if I dont do them are they.I have stocked up the fire with coal and logs so that is keeping us nice and warm and there is plenty to eat that wont take much cooking at t time so we are set for a few hours.Iv got my sewing out head phones in with Fleetwood Mac singing to me so Im quite content to chill.
  Hope you are all well,bye for now Love Jill xx

Catch up.


      Hello folks hope you are all well and happy.I am feeling happier in myself but have the lurgy,a real stinker of a cold.I had cold over Christmas but it didn't amount to much and I have felt rather blocked up but Friday morning when I got up I just knew that I was starting.Iv kept having lots to drink and plenty of lemon to attack it,I have a real sore nose looks like a beetroot it does, bit late for a Rudolf nose isn't it !!
     The weather has been dull,damp and mild today not quite a January day,as I fed the birds I noticed that I have little primroses coming out,bulbs starting to pop their little heads through and primulas starting to come alive in my little garden but is it not too soon to see all this happening this early in the year? I was told today that we may have snow later in the week which is more like January weather but then it may kill off what is sprouting in the gardens but I'm sure a few weeks of cold fresh day's would also kill off all the germs that are about.
     I have sat here tonight watching telly and not really taking in much of what I have watched I don't know if it is just me or does anyone else feel the same but there is not a lot on telly now that really catches my eye.I do like a good film when there is one on and loved the program Joanna Lumley did about Noah's ark that was on at Christmas but not much else.I sit with my sewing on an evening and hubby will sit watching the telly and I just haven't a clue what the  program is about.Think that if I lived on my own Id never turn the thing on,and what I could do with the space it takes up,my sewing machine could be brought down and put in that corner or I could get another book shelf and more books but I know hubby will not part with the telly.I have some ear phones for my laptop so I think I may just have to start using them while sewing I can listen to music and not disturb the hubbys telly.If I have anything to sew on the machine I sit upstairs in my little den but it is nice to sit around the fire and sew on winter evenings without the telly on and just some nice music playing.Iv lost all track now of why I started to tell you this,ranting on as usuall !! Never mind you now know that I have fallen out with the telly.
    Anyway hubby has gone to bed telly is switched off I have got a warm drink of milk with some honey in and a pile of nice soft tissues for my poor sore nose,a warm fire to sit in front of with my book for an hour or so untill I feel sleepey.I hope the weather is nice tomorrow then I can get some washing put outside to air a bit and maybe get the windows cleaned they are shocking Im sure that I wont need to put lights on in the house if I clean my windows,yes they really are that bad !!
I will bid you a good night  hope you all sleep well and look forward to reading your blogs tomorrow to see what you are getting up to.Bye for now Love Jill xx
PS sorry if I rant on a bit xx
