Wednesday was a very pleasant day though. Gina, from Quilting in the Valleys, came to visit and stayed for lunch. It was lovely to actually put a face to someone I've got to know a bit through her blog and the odd email. She brought me a beautiful rose bush for the garden and a pot of lavender.
Yesterday I woke up with what I think is probably a cold. If that sounds a bit odd and indecisive, that's exactly how my colds are. I get a bit of a sore throat and get a bit bunged up and sore eyes, and that's how it stays for days, until eventually it either goes away or turns into a proper cold. So I'm now in the in-between stage of feeling a bit under the weather and waiting to see what happens.
I've been busy sorting out bedding for the new motorhome, cutting down some old king size duvet covers to fit the smaller duvets we need, but I did find time to make a hot water bottle cover. I use a hot pad heated in the microwave most nights when I go to bed, unless it's really warm; I find them soothing and comforting, especially if my tummy's feeling a bit delicate as it so often does. We don't have a microwave in the motorhome, hence the need for the hot water bottle.
