My blog writing and visiting have all gone to pot this last week with Husband home sick i.e. I've had to do some work instead of telling him (from a distance) I'm working when actually I'm blogging.
He's much better though and is back to work and Hook tomorrow. George also had his stitches checked on Friday and he's declared fit again so all is back to normal. Good thing too as my head is fairly bursting with posts that seemed so important - but that now I struggle to remember.
As I've said before, I write my posts in my head usually while walking or showering or doing something else, so it doesn't take me long to get most of addle-brained thoughts out. The occasional more serious ones need time to write out but before I start on that I must mention a couple of things..
Tonight I was listening to Pick of the Week on Radio 4 while I was ironing. Every week I say I won't listen to it again because it gets me annoyed that I've missed so many fascinating programmes. So here's my selection of Pick of the Week ...
A farmer in Devon has given up pig-farming in favour of pig-cuddling. He finds it a much more lucrative business letting townies into the pig pen to cuddle a pig.
Exercise done in time to music i.e. synchronised, uses 7% less aerobic energy than that done not in time to music. I think that's what it said but I should check because it sounded as if it should be a good thing but if you use less energy then I'm not sure if it is. Not if you want to use up lots of calories. I think I must have got that wrong.
At Buckfast Abbey they have an Iraqi beekeeper. He trims one wing of the queen bee so if she tries to fly she falls to the ground, and the bees all give up and go back into their hive. Which sounds a little cruel. (I don't think the fact that he is from Baghdad is anything to do with this practice; I just mention it out of interest.)
