For the best part of today life has been good apart from the fact that my jam maker is not co-operating but I am looking into that. I had a lovely lunch with one of my good friends from work. I don't have many friends but those I do are good ones and I would trust them with my life. As if often the case with all my good friends they are not afraid to be themselves and often come over as characters, and a good belly laugh. I even have very good Internet friends who I have never met, but nonetheless the bond is there. Work has been hectic but that is par for the course. OH was supposed to fetch me but I ended up having to walk home as the car was not co-operating again. On the positive side the walk did me good but I hurt now and it will not be long before I am up away to bed with the cat, my constant companion when I am home. OH doesn't see anything of her during the day but as soon as I come in at night down she comes to greet me and then snuggles up.
Turning back to the car again I am worried as if it is something big we just don't have the wherewithall to do anything at the moment and we were supposed to be going away in September, but I am not sure that is going to happen at the moment although I sorely need the break again. We very much need the car it makes life easier all round. The chap we bought it from (a local trader) is coming to have a look at it tomorrow as it is covered by a warranty of sorts. So hopefully something can be done. So with the car and the jam pan...... argh virtual hari kari wasn't far off.
But I have been jam making the Greengages are now all done. I have calmed down a bit. I have Apricots to tackle tomorrow for Apricot jam so another busy evening tomorrow. At least I am taking care of the pantry. There's a lot that needs doing and I really need to get a wriggle on as so little time.
Will catch you all shortly
