Just a Quickie!

Hello all!
Just to say I can't write much because I'm too ill, and getting gradually worse.  I haven't ridden all week, but have had the energy to make cards, although today I haven't even had the brainpower to do that!  I'm just reading blogs and craft magazines and dripping everywhere (too much information?)
Hasn't it been a frustrating week with Blogger?  I can't comment on anyone's posts and my followers have disappeared off my actual blog page, although I can see from my dashboard that you're all still there.  I've had comments on my blog, so I don't understand why I can't comment on yours, I'm so sorry.  (Especially you, Edward, your new horse looks lovely!)
Mr O rode Barnaby for me today.  I was a bit upset, but I'm just grateful someone can keep him ticking over for me as we have a 14 mile ride next weekend, so I can't just leave him.
Nearly forgot to mention.  Mr O rang yesterday evening to say he'd be late home as the factory was on fire.  I was worried sick.  He did say everyone was out and safe, but some years ago, there was a fire at a factory where he worked and he went back in to get people out and his shoes melted, so I was worried he'd do something like that again.  They have a lot of plastic at this factory and some of it melted and stuck to him, but he is fine, thank the Lord. 
He was in shock when he got home and went to have a shower to get the smell of smoke off him, poor man.  I am just glad he and everyone else is safe.  It turns out the actual building wasn't on fire, the lads had had a fire on the yard and left it, and the wind whipped it up until it was out of control.  Scarey stuff.
And finally, it's only fair to say that I was well enough to go to the cinema today to see the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film.  I sat there with piles of tissues, making little snuffling noises like a happy hedgehog, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Let's just say, you get a lot of Johnny Depp for your money!  I have spent the past week watching the first three films at night, so I was ready.  I think it lacked a little Orlando Bloom, but apart from that I can't fault it.  If it wasn't for films like that I'd never be able to spell 'Caribbean'. 
Have a great weekend, everyone.
Mrs O.


  1. Sorry Jane your still not a 100% hope you soon feel a lot better.
    I did read that if you untick the keep me signed in will help to allow you to carry on commenting, but I dont have a problem as I use Firefox. with hugs Shirleyxxx

  2. Glad to hear that Mr O and every one else at the factory was ok. Thank you I am looking forward to working with my new horse, but he hasn’t been delivered yet, so all I can do is wait. I haven’t seen the new Pirates of the Caribbean yet I am looking forward to it, but it will probably be sometime before I get around to seeing it, as we get most of our movies from something called Lovefilm have you heard of it? Anyway I hope you feel better soon, I wish you a speedy recovery.

  3. Glad everyone was safe after the fire. That surely was a worry.

    I wish you a speedy recovery. It's never fun being sick, especially when the horseback riding beckons. Get some rest and be ready for that ride on the weekend!!
