Plans for tomorrow

My dears, I am quite, quite exhausted. Worn to a ravelling. Which is tragic news because it is only Monday. I should be as fresh as a daisy but I am feeling quite frail. This will obviously prevent me from doing the ironing tomorrow. And also cleaning the kitchen floor, far too tiring. It will not prevent me from going to the ballet tomorrow night because that involves sitting down and therefore can be part of my recovery plan. Also drinking a cocktail beforehand will maintain my fluid intake so I think I will have to do that too.

I will also be refreshing the relevant page on the Environment Agency website because we live uncomfortably close to the Thames.

  1. have crossed my fingers and toes for you that the Thames will behave.
    and perhaps a fruity cocktail will boost your vitamin C levels and aid recovery even further. take care x

  3. Oh my dear - you sound worn to a crisp - loosen your corsets and enjoy a little culture which I am sure will revive your spirits.

  4. You absolutely shouldn't even think of ironing or cleaning while you're feeling so frail. It would be utter madness. Only sitting down things should be permitted. I'm hoping that the water stays well away from you.

  5. I hope that you stay safe and dry Alice, take care of yourself and have a relaxing day so that you can enjoy your evening! There is no point rushing round like a mad thing with the weather like this. xx

  6. Hope the waters subside Alice - we're only a couple of miles from the Levels here and know only too well the perils of Mother Nature - sadly the weather forecast going forward shows more rain - roll on Spring and Summer

  8. Dear Alice, rest, rest and more rest is the only thing to make you feel much better. Sitting down with a cocktail is a capital remedy!
