Plodding Along

 Wednesday again. It rained all day today and I got absolutely drenched on my walk! It was only spitting when we started so we put on our raincoats and decided to walk. Of course, it didn't just stay that way. It absolutely fell down. We were - of course - the only foolish people at the park lol. At least we got out and had a walk, right? Tomorrow doesn't really look a lot better and if it's raining in the morning I think I'll stay home!

Daughter rang yesterday. Not sure if I mentioned this, but she got a promotion at work and started her new position this week. It's a little different for her especially as they are working from home and all training is done via zoom. She cheered me lots yesterday, so I appreciated her calling. This Sunday is UK Mother's Day. Not looking forward to it. It will be my first without Mum. Daughter says she has ordered me some English goodies to cheer me up. Some arrived yesterday and are coming in different packages apparently. I'm so thankful to have such a thoughtful daughter.

I got these yesterday from daughter. Yum! Chatting with her made me smile and cheered me up!

Kind of a rainy, dull day. Not much grabbed my attention to smile at. I did start a new book (above). I love books. I have too many of them. I must admit this hasn't grabbed my attention much. It's an average romance but a light read. I shall finish it and it will be donated so a good thing that another will be leaving my house!

Tomorrow I have some oh-exciting housework to do. I am hoping to get some sorting done, but I seem to be doing lots of that at Jane's house and not so much at mine! 

Hope everyone is having a good week!


  1. What a kind and thoughtful daughter you have. Those biscuits are indeed yummy and I bet you thoroughly enjoy them.

  2. Oooh, I love Jammie Dodgers. What a thoughtful gift.
    I'll think of you on Sunday. My Mum passed away the morning of Mothering Sunday and never saw the card I had for her from me and my brothers. I had debated leaving it by her hospital bed on the Saturday and decided not to. I do with I had. There's always something, isn't there.
    Anyway, this is all to say I do understand and send you lots of love. xx

    1. Thanks. That's got to be really tough. Sorry.

  3. Oh, so sorry you got soaked while out on your walk! Congratulations to your daughter on her promotion at work! That is so sweet of her to order special treats for you and call you to cheer you up. Daughters are the best! :)

  4. What stuck with me was "I'm doing lots at Jane's house and not much at mine" BINGO! My life! LOL

  5. Congratulations to your daughter on her promotion.

    A selection of English goodies is such a thoughtful gift for you. What's the foodstuff you miss the most?

  6. Hugs. The first mother's day is always hard. I hope that you didn't get too wet.
