I was shocked when DB told me that Jackie Collins had passed away from breast cancer. I saw her on TV recently and she looked just great, but then both she and her sister Joan always looked good.
I have read several of her 'racy' novels, yes they are racy but I enjoyed reading them, her Lucky Santangelo books, which are stand alone novels should be put together as a series.
An overcast morning with some mist has morphed into another bright sunny day, there is a chill in the air, but the wind has dropped, its just a gentle breeze.
As tomorrows weather is forecast to be dire I stripped the bed and its now almost dry, on the whirly in the garden. I also washed the fleecy throw from off the chair in the bedroom, it is cream and was looking a little grubby.
DB went to the stables for more manure, we have quite a pile at the top of the garden, it will get used when it has rotted down a bit. DB also put a bucketful into the composter.
Loaf on and have done the veg for supper. We are having chicken breast with apricots and brandy for a change, its ages sine I did it. Chicken breasts can cost almost as much as a chicken these days, so I do not do it very often.
We lit the fire last night, so it has been cleaned and re-laid ready to light again.
I am not very happy with my printer, I use it a lot to print stuff off for the quilting group, yesterday I was printing stuff for the Christmas things and half way through it told me it was running low on ink. I only put new ink cartridges in a couple of weeks ago. I am not happy, have had to spend over £40 on ink in the last few weeks. I know I do not pay for it, it is covered by the group fees, but £40 is a lot out. I will need to research one that uses cheaper ink for when this one goes to the printer graveyard.
I cannot use compatible inks, I did try and the blessed thing refused to acknowledge the cartridges and would not work.
Time to hop off and sort out some lunch...............
