Cowart's Common Room
Did you ever . . .

The one and only Elvis made a record called 'GI Blues.' Most of you are far too young to remember it. But there's a line 'Did you ever get one of those days boys, did you ever get one of them days, when nothing goes right from morning to night, did you ever get one of them days?'

Well today was just such a day. I slept appallingly, each time I dropped off I would be awake again in five minutes. To say I felt lousy is an understatement. And then I had invited Suzanne and Jacques over for an early evening aperitif but all the friends I had asked couldn't come, admittedly I had given them almost no notice. What was I going to do? Then J said she didn't feel up to a party. So I cancelled, relief, but then one of the guests - my French teacher whom I had invited late, said 'yes.' This was the pattern of the day. Then into Dyffryn Gardens for their open day to meet YD and family but we (and they) were held up in an horrendous traffic jam caused by laying a new gas main though the Vale. This meant we would miss the 5 o'clock concert in which one of our friends was performing. And then coming home along the lanes we had to drive through a slurry overflow and got slurry all over the car. And so it has continued. J, still under the weather asked me to cook supper. I have probably poisoned us all, even if it was only cheese on toast. I have had a couple of glasses of wine and shall leave the day until tomorrow and hope for the best and a good night's sleep.

Camilla's Avatar Aw, Sad I know you are like me when it comes to wildlife Fennie worry our heads off about it. Not your fault about the pigeon I am always honking my horn when they are in the road but some of them just sit there or as your case fly out of nowhere while you are driving.
