Staying at home

 Well, husband's elbow is a bit less swollen this morning, thank goodness - he's had 3 antibiotic tabs so far.  The GP told him on the phone to keep his arm raised in a sling for a couple of days, which would help the swelling go down a bit - seems he was right.  He says it's still a bit sore though, although it doesn't feel so hot or look so red.  He said he was going to mow the lawn and tidy the garden up....I said no, how's he supposed to do that with his arm in a sling? ๐Ÿ˜’  I've given him permission to sit and watch TV or sit outside and enjoy the sun for a day or 2, he should be thankful! ๐Ÿ˜‚

We're staying home for a few days as I've got lots to do - shopping this morning (husband will stay in the car), I also need to go to Wilko's for a few things for the caravan (yet again lol).  First load of washing is already done and out on the line.  Then this afternoon I need to vacuum everywhere, which always wears me out.  Tomorrow I want to do some batch cooking and freezing meals for the caravan, I've got menus to plan, and a couple of anniversary cards to make.  Betty's ears seem to have settled down, she's stopped shaking her head, so perhaps it was just a bit of wax that's been dislodged, so looks like we don't have to take her to the vet after all.  She's going to the groomer on Wednesday - she normally goes on a Tuesday, first appointment at 9 am, but somebody (who shall remain nameless but it wasn't me!) booked her in for Wednesday afternoon....meaning we can't go back to the caravan until Thurs morning.  Oh well, gives me another day to get stuff done I guess.

It's forecast to be very hot here for a few days, still hot when we go back to the caravan, and then scattered thunderstorms are predicted for a couple of days.....that'll be interesting in a tin box! ๐Ÿ˜‚


  1. I'm glad your hubby's elbow seems to be settling down. A couple of days resting it is a good idea, definitely not gardening! And I'm glad Betty's ear is OK, too. I hope the predicted thunderstorms aren't too noisy. xx

  2. So glad hubbys arm seems to be settling down a little. Here's hoping all will be well very quickly.

  3. I hope it will make for good napping in the caravan and not too much thunder.
