- a fly infestation in downstairs cloakroom
- slug trails across living room floor (and in Dec and Jan)
- breaking a mirror (7 years bad luck - huh!)
I am upset at breaking the mirror this morning. We have had the mirror for over 25 years. I am having to walk out on this bitterly cold day and buy another one from somewhere. I don't drive so it will have to be a walk into town. My knees ache and I have a problem with my wrist and left foot so I don't think I will be staying out for long. I am not so upset about the superstition of breaking a mirror meaning 7 years bad luck because I have had over seven years of bad luck already!
Feeling down, I reactivated my pinterest account. There are so many lovely images and inspirational quotes to see and I can quite easily while away some time adding things to my pinterest boards. I have added a click on link at the top right of this blog if you want to take a look.
Would you like to hear some good news? Gizmo has had all his stitches removed and been given the all clear from the vet. I am going to keep him in a couple more days though as he is still limping and looks like a case of cruelty with his shaven fur and battle scars.
The photo above is the sole clump of snowdrops I have in my front garden pushing up through the worm casts. I think they may have come up blind like my daffodils have done for the last few years. Maybe it is time to divide and replant or replace. Here's hoping to happier times ahead. I think that is all I want to divulge for now.
*Just got back from shopping. Letter on doormat, open it - 'due to an overwhelming response you have not been shortlisted for an interview'. Oh well.
** Bought new boxed mirror. Came home, took mirror out of box. Plastic frame damaged with piece missing. A journey back to the shops tomorrow.
