Peter Pain...

Further to R Next Door's search for a working pain relief liniment, I remembered this stuff, from my extreme youth. These strips used to appear in the Sunday comic papers, and I was mildly afraid of the gnarly green homunculus...Still looks very weird.

Must say this current HOLLOW CROWN  series is some of the best-done  Shakespeare I've ever seen. HENRY IV PART II Saturday, was terrific. Falstaff and Shallow had me snivelling. (I was in a melancholy mood, anyway...) .Check it out on iPlayer if you missed it. It's really  worthwhile.

Sodden...

Got drenched while exercising downstairs, just when I'd thought it was 'safe'. Same again when I  ventured to ASDA mainly to stock up on litter crystals for the cat, only to discover that once again, they are out of them. Gnghhh...Oh well, I am certainly not forgetting how much better it is (for me, at least-)  to be dripping in eternal drizzle than to be stewing in the frightful heatwaves that so many other poor peeps are enduring. 
R Next Door is off on 'holiday' with her animals (ie:  house sitting for a wealthy friend on the posh side of Clapham Common for a week. She's thrilled. It's a gorgeous, cosy house, with a garden, and she'll have TV, etc. (Hers conked out, and she refuses assistance to buy a new one-) So, that's cool; hopefully the change will do her good.
