Sorry about yesterday. I woke up feeling a bit weaker than usual, and found myself also a bit dizzy as I started to totter about. I cancelled the day’s walk, and also today’s Italian (because of un po’ di capogiro  which may or may not be right) and managed to stay on my feet for the arrival of the washing machine and two other deliveries. The washing machine requires the attention of a plumber who is booked for Monday. It’s a splendid-looking machine all right.


It may have happened because I didn’t eat properly on Thursday. My Mindful Chef package turned out inedible and I didn’t replace it, as I easily might have, with pasta aglio e olio or something along those lines.


Anyway, here I am. Our local French restaurant delivered my order yesterday afternoon. I dined well, and feel much better today. Helen and I walked briskly around the garden in warm, grey spring weather. 1958 steps.


I’ve done a bit more knitting, not much. But the Andrew Marr show tomorrow should at least advance me to the ribbing which will finish off the Evendoon.


No more reading. But I see that Franklin has posted another Vlog. I hope I’ll knit a bit to that this evening.


  1. Good to hear from you! Glad you are feeling better.

  2. Very glad you are feeling better. Avoid bad food - or no food. Stay well!!

    Glad you're feeling better.

    But wondering in what way the bixed food was inedible? Did it arrive spoiled? Or just something not to your taste?

    I hope Helen will pose for a pic in her Evendoon when it is finished.

    It is important to eat attractive and tasty food! Glad to hear you ordered from that French restaurant again. Their dishes seem excellent.
    Thanks for posting! Your readers know it does take effort.

  5. I must say that I admire your regime of regular deliveries from a French restaurant. It might be that your regular meds had more effect because you had not had enough to eat.
