Are you conscious of killing germs at the moment? How is your remote control looking? A splash of hand sanitizer on a piece of kitchen towel will do wonders for your remote controls. A cotton bud can help get to the trick.
Want your undies to smell nicer? Take a coffee filter and fill it with a little bicarbonate of soda and some essential oils. Lavender or orange sound good. Tie it with an elastic band and pop it in those drawers.
Want to keep your bread fresh? Pop a clean potato in the bread bin.
Just had a cup of ground coffee? When the grains have cooled down use them on your hands as an exfoliator.
Got dry skin on your face? Try a mayonnaise mask and leave it on for 20 minutes.
Feeling tired? Whilst watching TV, roll a tennis ball under your feet. A bit of a revival.
I was just reading about lovers making love in a supermarket car park.
None of my friends have admitted to having a secret lover in their senior years. But it set me thinking. How would you contact each other with your spouse in lockdown with you? Would you have a secret phone? Would it be hidden and switched off? Would you have a secret email address? How would you access your lovers messages with your spouse looking over your shoulder, especially a jealous partner or worse still, an abusive one you were planning to escape from prior to lockdown, with or without the support of a lover.
Meeting up in a hotel has become impossible. Meeting up in a bar or cinema is a no go. Even if you get to meet up in a mutual friends house/garden, Should you be using your mutual friend’s wine glasses and cutlery? Surely you wouldn’t dare kiss and hug your lover in case you unknowingly have the virus and his daughter has just had a baby and vice versa?
Would you risk it for a quickie in a car park or in the woods? I know I wouldn’t, but many people are young, energetic and miss a good sex life, or maybe just a bit of romance that is missing at home.
What could be nicer in this lovely warm weather we have been having? The flowers are nodding in the light breeze. The birds are singing. Bees buzzing around. Adults and children eating al fresco. If your knees aren’t quite as flexible these days, don’t forget to take a folding chair and a picnic blanket.
Don’t forget the drinks. Plenty of vino, big jugs of still and sparkling water. Orange juice for the children. Thirsty guests are unhappy guests and at Casa Janussi it’s OH’s job to make sure nobody has an empty glass. 🍷
I have been in bed for over a week now and finally tested positive yesterday. I thought I was going mad when I kept testing negative with the energy of a tortoise. I hope the worst is over. An awful lot of people are in the same boat. Trying to keep positive.
My significant other was working for some VIPs last week and when they left their hotel suite, they gave him two bags of tropical fruit. Not being very keen on fruit in general, except for citrus fruit, it seems a shame to waste it all.
The problem is what to do with it. I googled various fruits to see if the pips were edible and got busy with a sharp knife, making a fruit salad. The star fruit were a little complicated to peel (no idea if they should be peeled) and after taking out the pips, I sliced them into, guess what, star shapes. It took over an hour to peel and chop a large bowl of fruit, but I am sure the vitamin content will be well worth it.
