Thought I was doing too well today, having been woken at 5am by car alarms going off, I got up and caught up with my mail, then gave myself a haircut, before my shower and breakfast.
After breakfast, it was house cleaning, and loading the washing machine. Having completed those chores it was time to start lunch, and there was no lunch… just a disaster, how can you go wrong with grilled chicken with gravy and rice, I managed it!!!! One of the problems here is that they do not have gravy, if the meal is going to be on the dry side, you have a bowl of soup alongside, and that supplements the food, however I like my gravy, so made some, only it went wrong, and although thick, was full of lumps of flour. On top of that Marcela asked for fried platano, and I was not wearing a shirt, lifted the lid of the frying pan, and the damn things spat at me, hot fat on my stomach arm and face, so I was not in the best of moods, and if I had not been hungry, I think it would have all gone in the bin. I\’ll give Marcela credit for keeping a straight face, until we had finished, then she burst out laughing.
This afternoon, I think we are going to the pool, before the next thunderstorm rolls in!
