The Cakes of Roth

Indigo came over today to see Roses and me.  For one reason and another, we hadn’t seen him since before Christmas, so it was great to catch up.

In the morning, after church, we were chatting about this and that and I mentioned that I used to drop in at the village pub regularly on a Sunday until the after-church coffee went on so long that I didn’t have time any more.  Now, the services are earlier and it made me a bit nostalgic, so i toddled off down the road at about noon for a quick half.  And another and another – and I turned down, with thanks, the offer of two more drinks and got home about 2 o’clock.  Hmm.  I need to sort myself out a bit, time-wise, if I’m going to make a habit of this.

I still had time to feed the chickens before Indigo arrived and made a cake too and some brownies.  I cooked some pork for supper and we finished with cake.  It’s been a nice, relaxing day.

I’ve found an estate agency that specialises in waterfront properties, so I am having little browses.  Not that there’s any prospect of me selling up here for a while, but it’s good to see what’s available at what price.  Probably fortunately, I haven’t seen anything yet that would suit me.  I certainly can’t contemplate falling in love with a house I’m not in a position to buy.

I didn’t sleep much last night, so I’m going to have an early night. I hope you’re all well – I haven’t had a chance to check out blogs much in the past week, but I will catch up soon.

    We seem to need half an hour’s sleep most afternoons now. I’m not sure it’s a good idea though. Ann seems to be able to sleep for fifteen minutes then awake refreshed. I crash out for a couple of hours or so, and wake feeling worse than when I crashed, which gives me my answer, I suppose, although Ann says if we sleep, it proves we needed it.

    Do you lie on the bed, Mike? If I do that, I’m off for hours. If I settle down in a comfy armchair, I can nap for a short time. More than half an hour and one goes into a much deeper sleep that isn’t so refreshing during the day. Maybe Ann could come in after her nap and turn the radio on so that you wake up gently to it?
