I fell asleep in the evening, woke, ate, wrote and slept in the chair again, waking stiffly at 2am. So I went to bed. By seven I was ready to get up again, as my back was telling me lying down wasn’t a good idea. I have just spent a couple of hours catching up with other bloggers. Try Growing out of Chaos or Billy Mann. Also enjoyed Matthew Paul and the usual suspects, including Derrick and TP. I always feel guilty adding links, as there are loads of great blogs out there that I enjoy but take for granted. Almost forgot Paol Soren, and some breath-taking views of Tasmania. I read that two hours ago and I’ve crammed so much in that I’ve already started to forget things. If I have failed to link to your blog, I assure you that it isn’t personal.
The rest of the day is unlikely to be quite so productive as I have to stop and cook breakfast now (that’s how we can tell it’s Sunday – breakfast is made by cooking rather than by pouring milk on it). That will involve sitting in front of TV for a while and chatting. It’s what we do. If I had my life over again I would try to eat at a table with no TV, but I’ve slipped into various bad habits and I don’t have the energy to fight them all.
Ideally, of course, I’d have a separate breakfast room with chafing dishes and a footman to serve, but that’s diverging from reality in a significant way.
So, time to make breakfast.
Thanks once again for mentioning my blog 😊. I hope you’re enjoying Bank Holiday Monday now. Do you get to cook breakfast again on such days?
Baked eggs with mushrooms, ham and tomatoes. A proper breakfast but without a frying pan. I really need to extend my repertoire again. I have become stale over the second and third lockdowns.
That sounds like a sensible hearty breakfast. A day of rest, and hearty, healthy foodsounds like a good thing.
Yes, it has been a good day. 🙂
That sounds a tasty breakfast!
It was. Leftovers and eggs is clearly the way to go when you look at the choice of recipes.
I do tend to use leftovers for lunch….
You can probably get an ointment to stop the dishes chafing. The footman will doubtless apply it to your nether regions.
That was an aspect of life below stairs that Downton Abbey seemed to miss out…
They glossed over some stuff.
Yes, I’m sure they did. But that wasn’t necessarily the worst thing they did in terms of changing history.
