A View To More Moods Ahead!

The problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you are finished - Nelson Demille
Oh dear, not feeling too well...
Up I got to have a drink..
 I wrote out Friday's blog post.
Then back to bed for another 3 hours...
I just about had my breakfast...
Feeling yukky!
I got the remaining plants potted before it started to rain...
 (Hubby went food shopping)
I still went to my other job with some good tunes to listen to...
 My hubby went round to see my dad.
My prodigal brother brought back some computer consoles he had "Borrowed" off my dad. I mentioned them to little brother, and prodigal brother bought them back!
