…….with my gorgeous class ….. or more happily, to my six week break. So I return to work tomorrow minus the suntan I’d been hoping for as the weather has been typical school holiday – chilly and damp! A brief respite from it yesterday when Dave and I were able to ‘spark up the barby’ and lounge on our…err ….loungers…. until quite late in the evening. Today is grey and really quite chilly. I’ve been asking myself if my current passion for grey clothes is due to how I’ve dressed my blog, or maybe even down to the weather?
So here we’ve been all week, dodging the showers and wrapping up warm and then there’s my mum who’s been sunning herself all week in hot Cyprus. Lucky her! She returns today and I’m going to layer on my definitely delicious Clarins Creme Delicieuse tonight so that I don’t look too pale in comparison. Seriously though, Mum, I hope you had a great time!
Charley has colitis, which is a form of IBD which I suffer from. We took her to the vet’s Friday night and she (the vet) didn’t take long to diagnose it. So Charley is now on an antibiotic, an anti inflammatory med (which I used to take for my IBD!) and a new diet of chicken and rice. She has good and bad days. On bad days she just lies around listlessly refusing food. On good days she’s her usual bouncy, greedy self. We’re not allowed to feed her anything but the dry food which contains chicken and rice, and water of course. This will be very very difficult as I’m sure any dog owner will know! We take her back in two weeks for a review of the situation.
Lastly, must just add an addendum to my previous post about the latte. I should have said it was one of the best lattes I’ve ever had in the UK. Of course all the lattes I supped in Italy are the best ever! Just to prove that I can make a mean one myself, here’s a pic of the one I made myself this morning (and no I’m not cheating, I do own a Starbucks mug!). It’s taken a great deal of experimenting to make a good enough latte!
