Thursday

I am feeling better today. I’m not sure if it was a bug I had or symptoms of the Crohn’s Disease that I am suspected of having.  Lots of visits to the smallest room, and, at times, overwhelming tiredness. I’ve never been one for wanting to take naps during the day, let alone want to crawl into bed mid-afternoon, but thats how I have felt since Monday.

Anyway, enough of that. On a positive side, I’m sitting here writing this in the back yard in the sunshine and it’s gloriously warm too. There’s an abscence of any chilly wind that so often spoils a fair weather day here, even, sometimes, in summer.


The General Election campaign is underway with the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, and other party heads on the stump around the country. I already know how I am voting so I tend to take everything I hear, see or read with a pinch of salt. Not that Im not interested, but whatever any one of the parties says can be boosted or kncked back, depending on one’s viewpoint in the first place.

I don’t feel that the UK is quite as polarized politically as the United States though. We certanly dont throw such obscene amounts  of money at elections as our American cousins do, that’s for sure!

Dinner this evening is going to be quite simple. I’ve roasted some chicken drumsticks, and made a basic salad with lettuce, red onion, celery, peppers, tomatoes, parmesan, and diced bacon. With another glass of this rather delightful South African Chenin Blanc, it should go down a treat.

What do YOU think?
