Freezing in the house today. About to search for my gloves and hat. Ridiculous.

I can hear the red wine calling to me from the kitchen.
Only 380 minutes until the weekend.

A lunch hour straining, bottling (and tasting) six bottles of sloe and damson gin. All lunch hours should be like this. I have a gin haze.
I do like to watch the Dial-A-Bus picking up a frail old couple from our street every day and taking them off to unknown, old-people places.

One of the joys of cat ownership: Your lovely cat comes to give you some love... but smells of some poo...
Wondered what smell was. Burning? Hot metal? How odd... Oh my god the kettle. No whistle this time... It was glowing bright red on the stove
Mid-morning snack of Spicy Bombay Mix...
Morning is starting well - no access to work email... Well, no news is good news, I always say.

Time for a quick snack of bread, cheese and chilli...
A group of 15 people have gathered outside my house. I wonder what they want?
My dreams of a quiet start to the week are shattered - multiple #fails at work mean I'm already chewing my tongue and muttering bad things..

Cooking a big curry... Oh yes.
Moustache has reached problem length: when I drink coffee it acts as a sponge, absorbing liquid and releasing it only when cup is removed...

Eating a piece of ginger and walnut cake I made at lunchtime... Mmmm...
Curried lentil, rice and coconut soup...

Ah, a morning of problems confounded by works email suddenly going down. Bring on the coffee...

Argument outside the house: Her: "Don't touch me!" Him: "Why do you have to do this? I hope you die!" ... Depressing.

Lounging on an oversized bed, about to find some food, then brave some Scottish-island pubs. A pint of heavy, please, barkeep.

An adult, with full free-will delusions, I am easily led. Down dark paths. Into the depths. Just saying, like.

Today's lunch will be celeriac and carrot soup, with a side-dish of cheesy-chips :)
Having a veggie sausage with mustard to pep me up. And coffee. What? No, that's a sensible mid-morning snack.
Feeling a modicum of stress.
