Where has the day gone? I lost complete track of time this afternoon and had to apologise to my neighbour as it was too late for tea on the drive! This was at 3.40 and I was walking the dog who was whingeing about being ignored.
On our walk, I passed several tea parties, some in fancy hats sporting flags and tassels, and one house had a CD going with Dame Vera warbling her best We’ll Meet Again at the White Cliffs of Dover. I was contentedly singing along, even though I’m not sure of the words, but the atmosphere in our road from those having tea on the lawn was quite something.
It’s taking me an age to get through my reader, as Hubby put a movie on the big screen (read computer monitor we plug a DVD player into, though this was on the internet) and, what can I say, I got engrossed. This is highly unusual, but it was a film called The Impossible from 2012 starring Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor and Tom Holland based on the story of Maria Belón’s experience in the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Edge of your seat stuff, and I cried at the end. Well worth a look if you haven’t seen it.
So, I’m running late, got some challenges to do (I think) and I have a book review for you.
Now, believe it or not, it’s time for her ladyship’s penultimate walk!!
If anyone can accomplish all the prompts that are out there, that person is you, Di.
But… Don’t add pressure to yourself because you won’t enjoy it if there is pressure.
Take good care of yourself.
Hi Beckie! How are you today?
Must admit I don’t do as many as I used to for the reasons you state. No point doing something you don’t enjoy.
I’m okay. Thanks. It was a nap kind of day. It’s dark, dreary, cold, and raining.
I’m slowly getting back in there by simply reading. I worked a little bit on a post that I’m posting tomorrow. I just wish I could gain back my creative side back quickly. In the meantime, I don’t want to force it. I miss being here so much and all you guys.
Take your time Beckie. We’re not going anywhere. 🙂
Thank goodness for that. Take good care of yourself, Sweetie! 💗
A lovely hot sunny day today. Well it’s hot in my flat with the sun.
I have seen this film and yes, I was in tears with this film too.
Have a lovely weekend. X
you too Liz.
Thank you. X
This is the good thing about having a dog, does wonders for a routine!
She is such a creature of habit, you can almost tell the time by her.
*Whew* No worries, you’ll handle it ALL. If not today, then there’s always tomorrow, right? It’s 12:30 p.m. over here and I still have three challenges (one is an award) to write, as well as a Pudge perspective summarizing his ordeal at the specialist. My flowers need to be planted, I have to put a new ink cartridge in my printer, test the camera to see if it’s working properly and clean my room here. I’m thinking seriously of packing it all in and going for a cheese sandwich and a long nap. I think sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves to get it ALL done. I’ve begun to just shelve the things I don’t get to and remember there is always tomorrow. Especially since time has lost its meaning right now. Take care Di! Good on you for walking Ms. Maggie. Our furkids don’t ask for much really, do they? ❤
Beckie said the same thing about putting ourselves under pressure. I’ve cut back on many challenges though still have my favourites.
Sometimes I just don’t get any original ideas or inspiration and other times everything’s bubbling away under the surface and I can’t get it down fast enough!
Have a great weekend. Hope Pudge is OK. Take care. 😀
We had a bit of bunting in the village but that was it. So unusual.
It’s been great on our estate
