Sorry that I haven't blogged since Monday. Been a busy week, and also a lovely week weather wise for January (see above photo). Did the Long Melford Antique Fair on Wednesday. Did very well. Only bought one item, but might well use that as a mystery object in a week or so. Sold rather better that I'd expected though. One thing rather spoiled the fair though, which was that at about midday, whilst Kath and Derek took over for us, we went back to the car to get an umbrella, intending to go for a walk, and Ann shut a finger in the car door. It looked a mess, so took her through to the kitchen, where Ros took down the First Aid kit, and she and I bandaged the finger. I wanted to run Ann up to Bury St. Edmund's Hospital to have the finger looked at, but Ann wouldn't wear it at any price. In fact the following morning I took Ann along to the Highdale Surgery, where the on duty nurse agreed with Ann, rebandaged the finger, and said it was "going on nicely". On the other hand (sorry for bad pun, Rog) it does rather explain why it's been such a busy week, in that it's meant that I've been doing the majority of the cooking, with Ann directing operations. She's a great deal better now though, and says it's amazing what you can get done with a plastic bag over the left hand, with a rubber band to keep it in situ. My duties are now reduced to peeling and preparing the vegetables, which Ann still finds difficult (I knows my place).
If Rog and Paff think the above (now much photographed) azalia looks vaguely familiar - they are right. It's looked lovely now for two months, and is still thriving.
Good night All.
