I am in need of both at the moment, with various worries in the background. Still, we must count our blessings as there is always someone worse off, and indeed on one of my Facebook groups today someone reported in (from America) and in the past two or three years has lost a baby, had diagnosis and operations for 3 separate cancers, and also has 3 auto-immune diseases. Then a stroke. My heart goes out to her and her family and I pray that she will make a full recovery. She is such a lovely lady, with a young family. No-one deserves to be played this hand of cards in life.
I think this may be an Ivory Funnel Fungi (Leucopacillus giganticus) - although this one wasn't huge. More likely it's the Peppery Milkcap Lactifluus piperatus). It's been a long time since I've found any Milkcaps - Fungi was a bit thin on the ground on my walks in Carmarthenshire.
These clouds were stacking up just as I got close to home. It waited to rain when I was indoors.
I slept badly again last night, so haven't done much today. I managed some x-stitch whilst I was watching Escape to the Country - a couple with a million pounds who fell in love with the first house they saw (in Derbyshire) and went on to buy it. I think they had been looking quite some time and then hey-ho, they found the perfect house.
Here's a lovely old boy who has moved into the area. A Lippizaner (his brand can be faintly seen on his hind leg where it joins the quarters - his growing winter coat has masked it), and quite dippy-backed now. Such a sweetheart.
As I mentioned, I am finding the x-stitch good therapy for worries at the moment. It gives me something to look forward to as well and that's no bad thing. Not much else to look forward to apart from having our new bathroom finally installed and being able to have a bath again. Which reminds me, I need to find and order some bathroom wallpaper pronto . . .
