Good Morning


Nothing new this morning, although I am a bit later as my angelic cleaning lady is here. I am so lucky to have her. She does the job perfectly, It is not so self-evident that someone does the job so well. I can just leave her to it.

Otherwise I am still trying to get to my new routine without No. 1 son. He usually works during the day, but somehow something is still missing. I am having problems with my shopping, reducing amounts to cook. Yesterday we had the remains of lunch for the evening meal. I cooked enough pasta to feed the five thousand, not exactly, my son would have eaten everything.


My campanula (bellflowers or balloon flowers) are now flowering wonderfully. I have a problem with the name of this plant as it seems that everyone calls it something differently. When they were new they were a compact little plant about ten years ago. Now they arrive every year, same place same time, and have grown taller.


My front garden is also developing. The rain has now disappeared and I hope so have the slugs. They seem to like it wet and damp.

I went shopping yesterday for this and that. I had to organise a small watering can as I have one plant in the front garden in a pot, a white mini rose, and the hose drowns it completely.  At last our shower in the bath has been repaired. I have a bathroom and a shower room, but rarely use the bath as I have difficulties climbing into it and almost need someone to pull me out again. The shower is easier. I can stand, even have a seat in it and no problem. Mr. Swiss prefers the bath but the shower completely gave up, so I had to call the plumber. He came yesterday and after half an hour we had a completely new shower head with holder fixed on the wall. We used to fit it ourselves, but now prefer to call the expert to do it.  Gradually we are compiling a list of the handymen we need for our jobs.  They are mostly local, nice friendly guys and eventually you really get to know them. Our plumber became independent with his own company a couple of years ago after the owner went into retirement and is doing the job perfectly.

And now I am hoping for smooth runnings for the next couple of weeks: no doctor appointments, no repair jobs and just taking it easy.

And now to move on to the kitchen. Have a good restful day see you around.

  1. Beautiful share, thank you, Pat. My campanula ´giant’ is blooming too, in her pot in the shade. I am glad not to have thrown it away, as I wasn’t sure if it was a good plant. Am back from the garden, weeding….

  2. Owen thinks he has found us a couple. For some reason, around here cleaning is done in pairs, often sisters or a married couple. These two work for his boss and Owen says they have to work cheap because NO ONE is cheaper than his boss. I live in hope!
