All children seem to be crying today .... the ones who stay home all day, the ones coming home from school ....
after an all-nighter with "homeland" this is very straining.

Got the Coop mag 17 April 2018 issue: enclosed in it, among other gardening and fust stuff was a thin booklet with vouchers from diff shops on a perforated sheet with a 20% discount voucher from Manor which expires on 24 March this year, as in, 24.3.2018.
The little pernickety side of me is displeased...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

50 shades of gray - neither the book (which I have not read beyond page 3, nor I intend to) nor the movie (which I have not seen, nor I intend to). Who knew there were so many shades of gray (and white) wall paint?

I'm moving tomorrow and I'm nowhere near all packed. When I hired the moving company, I should have picked the option "we'll pack for you".

My friend visiting from across the country ran into one of my most favorite chefs and human beings in general in our neighborhood coffee shop. Debating when to start the camp-out without being taken for a stalker.

Hay fever so strong that I am bed ridden today.
Thought of you this morning. I had a hard time all day yesterday and was wondering what it was until I saw this morning that everything in my garden is covered in pollen.
My allergy to it is rather mild, so I just try to keep my sneezing sexy (ha, ha). But this year it seems more difficult, even for me.

No fun to lie in bed with this lovely weather and I can't even suggest to move the bed to the garden . Hope times will get better for you soon.
