No time to waste…

October 28, 2012

Jeaniegran and Poppa are arriving here tomorrow to stay for a week and while we’re all looking forward to their arrival,  it does  necessitate a little tidying up and rearranging of things. For a start, the lego floor covering in the red room must be removed, and the miniature soldiers and the miniature – but sharp –  barbed wire  in the  bird room needs curtailing.  The newspaper box which is overflowing should be emptied – Poppa is a two newspapers a day person – and the kitchen table really should have enough space for 6 people to eat at comfortably.

But the main worry on the Beloved’s part is the garden. Poppa likes to have a go at little  jobs in the garden – and it’s difficult to predict what little job Poppa might want to get his teeth in to.  However,  if there is some obvious thing that needs doing (often involving a ladder and/or a pair of loppers or, heaven forbid, a saw) that  Beloved would really rather Poppa didn’t have a go at, he has to deal with it now or suffer the consequences. It’s a potentially stressful  time.

So the Beloved decided that he needed a cooked breakfast this morning, especially as the clocks went back as there’s an hour of daylight gone before we got up – it being a Sunday and all. I’m not  a fan of a cooked breakfast, but I thought it might make a good photo for the blog.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t aware of the urgency the beloved felt about his tasks. By the time I’d changed the clocks  to today’s time, breakfast was cooked and eaten!

So here’s a photo of a proper cooked breakfast instead.
