Cowart's Common Room
I Can't Sleep Chat Post

Hello Owls and Larks,

“When the girl returned, some hours later, she carried a tray, with a cup of fragrant tea steaming on it; and a plate piled up with very hot buttered toast, cut thick, very brown on both sides, with the butter running through the holes in great golden drops, like honey from the honeycomb. The smell of that buttered toast simply talked to Toad, and with no uncertain voice; talked of warm kitchens, of breakfasts on bright frosty mornings, of cosy parlour firesides on winter evenings, when one's ramble was over and slippered feet were propped on the fender, of the purring of contented cats, and the twitter of sleepy canaries.”

- Kenneth Grahame - Wind in the Willows

Well it's definately been feeling like winter lately, no matter sun is on it's way.Very Happy

Off to take a tour of the site, if you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams

Fennie's Avatar Best wishes for your old jalopy, Camilla. Crossed fingers.

Now you really shouldn't post passages about hot buttered toast and honey when I am struggling to bring my weight down from the stratosphere into which it balloons every time I go to France! Very HappyVery Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar I could just curl up in that shady corner right now Camilla, dog tired, I suspect hayfever so the antihistamines are on the go hopefully that will wake me up a bit.

Good luck with the MOT.

Camilla's Avatar Thanks re MOT perhaps I could use this subject in the latest homework!Very Happy

Fennie you do make me laugh
Very Happy you had a great time and that's all that matters. Nothing wrong with a tad of indulgence now and then. 'What sort of day is it', said Pooh to Christopher Robin. 'It's a day when you can have extra lashings of yummy honey'. 'Oh good' said Pooh.Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar Sorry to hear that FN, yes I am the same at the moment. Got to sleep at 4am and then woke up at 9am and could hardly breathe . I know it is the hayfever too though and sinuses. A quick puff of the inhaler and antihistamine nasal spray helped. It's like a short sharp shock with the weather today. Has been cold and raining with winds, today very hot and sunny. Fling off those vests!Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar It's pretty hot here FN. well almost 70 degrees is hot for me, I love the sun but not when it soars too high. I am left wiltingVery Happy. Just dropped off my car at Garage and then discovered I was fresh out of a few groceries. It's a long and winding road to the store, alright going down hill but it's coming back up hill with heavy basket that leaves me in a heapVery Happy. Must get my bike fixed soon.
