I'm not sure this is the sort of thing Silverpebble is looking for but it certainly is a jolly shade of scarlet don't you think?
This is my left thigh, the right is the same. From knees to knickers -sore, red, itchy blotches. Apparently I am allergic to Flamazine (silver sulfadiazine cream) which the nurses up at my clinic have been using to treat my burn. The doctor gave me some steroid cream and a strong antihistamine.
My heart sank when I read the label.
Well I can live without indigestion remedies (thank goodness) but really, no alcohol, someone as they say is 'having a laugh'.
Oh I am having fun.
There are some consolations.
A Christmas present to myself. Joan Hickson is the only true Miss Marple. Accept no substitutes.
I'm working my way through all twelve of them with relish.
Miss Marple does lack sex appeal rather so I was delighted to discover Zen on BBC1 on Sunday. Rufus Sewell does not lack sex appeal. At all. Rome is rather gorgeous too.
One pan sausages and onion gravy
The food's not bad either. Turns out yelling instructions from the sofa does result in a tasty meal after all. This was the first time C had made gravy. Sausages and onions browned in butter and olive oil in a roasting tin. Roasting tin in the oven for 30-40 mins. Sausages removed to a serving dish. A little cornfour blended with water, some stock and a splash of marsala added to the onions.
And of course there has been time to get some crochet done.
I'd still rather be cooking, cleaning and ironing. Really.
Thank you for all your good wishes and sympathy, much appreciated :o)
