Mary Thistle comes to the castle...

I call my very best friend Mary Thistle, we have been best friends for over 20 years and have seen each other through champagne glass after champagne glass!

She lives on a farm an hour and half away from me but last week she phoned and made a booking to come for a city stay, requesting the Deluxe Suite,

luckily for her the Dilux Sweet was available,

with 5 star luxury touches,

and a home crafted complimentary gift,

none of which I even billed her for!

Unlike the recent visit the Cowboy, the Princess and I had to her farm stay where we were charged an exorbitant rate for one night!

I can't believe we are halfway through July!  Back in June I posted a list of what I hoped to achieve, I haven't done too well with it so need to carry it through to July lol

The June/July To Do List 

  • building a website,
  • writing a book, - have made notes
  • creating with fabric and paint,
  • selling, selling, selling, - have been doing this and continuing
  • getting fit,
  • getting my ribs healed, - almost there, 11/13 fractures now completely healed
  • stopping pain medication, - halved it
  • fun times with the Princess, - big tick
  • fun times with the Cowboy,  big tick
  • reading a book for pleasure,  big tick
  • cooking new recipes,  big tick
  • buying contact lenses,
  • getting my hair cut,
  • and staying warm! -  impossible in the big drafty castle
  • blog daily - just added today

my list doesn't look so bad really!

better go, have a roast chicken to cook and a list to carry on working on!

I think you have very well, after all one has to consider the side effects of pain and pain drugs...that would slow a race car down!! Hard to remember you are cold, when it is so hot here in the U.S. Just keep having fun..when do classes start again?

What lovely five star touches you have prepared for your friend. Hope you have a lovely visit. And how awesome that 13 ribs have already healed. That is nothing short of a miracle.
