Poor Ray no sleep again for the pain and the rash. He was so uncomfortable all night and so once again got up and slept on the settee.
We never knew Shingles could be so painful.
I slept though and the dog liked the empty bed so he could come and sleep on his back with me, all you could see was lovely legs stuck up in the air all hairy and fluffy.
I got up at 5am and had a coffee with Ray as he proudly showed me the devastating red rash all blistering.
I had a lot of emails to answer so i got busy on that and Ray took more painkillers and went to sleep.
I crept around and made a bed and tidied up and he slept only waking up about 8.30am
I got him while he was half awake and cut his hair ha ha !!! Sue my neighbour noticed this later on and took the mickey as Ray had already said to her he was trying to avoid me doing the ghastly deed.
Carried on and had showers and just playing housewife, then we decided to buy a spare leisure battery at the camping shop, so we had a a soup and drink and off we went.
Battery bought we went to Tankerton and it was packed with visitors but we managed to squeeze into a parking space.
It was lovely with children playing everywhere (the teachers are on strike here)
Some were in the water splashing around
We did a round walk and went back through Tankerton to shop as they have lots of shops, Greengrocer, butchers and bakers and i love shopping locally where you get a good afternoon and a chat.
Back at the car (which we couldn’t remember just where it was, but we walked along until we found it)
When we got home my friends son was painting away doing a great job on a Parkhome where the man has just died so it is up for sale.
Ray charge the battery up and its now in the Motorhome and we have had dinner http://www.rivercottage.net/recipes/basil-corgette-frittata/
Basil & Corgette Frittata
4 Tbs good olive oil, divided
1/2 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 large corgette, grated
3 Tbs grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
10 basil leaves, torn into pieces
Basil, frittata, Courgette
1. Heat the grill. In a 10-inch nonstick pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it softens, about 5 minutes. Add the corgette and cook until it’s no longer moist and begins to clump together, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. 2. While the corgette is cooking, beat the eggs with a fork until they are well mixed but not foamy. Stir the cheese, salt and basil leaves into the egg mixture and then add the cooked corgette. Stir for a minute after you’ve added the corgette in order to cool it slightly. 3. Return the pan to the heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. When the oil is hot, pour in the egg mixture and immediately reduce the heat to medium low. The bottom of the egg mixture will set very quickly. Gently lift the sides with a fork and pull them toward the center, allowing the loose egg mixture to run underneath. Cook this way until the eggs are almost set, about 5 minutes. 4. Put the pan under the grill until the eggs are puffed and lightly browned, about 45 seconds. Cool slightly before carefully sliding the frittata onto a serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Very tasty I made this for one as ray wanted Sausage mash and baked beans–comfort food!!! But he is a lot brighter tonight although the rash looks so angry.
Well still no phone call!!!
