Cold. Dry. Windy. That's all there is to say about today.
The hospital trip went very well, positive news for W, it could be just a few weeks before he loses the cast.
I am keeping my metaphorical finger crossed. I can not cross the real ones as I need them for my knitting.
I had planned on getting some sewing done this afternoon but it was gone 3:00 before we got home. I had time to have a cuppa and a cwtch with Ben before getting ready for the afternoon walk. It was not a long one, just as we left there was a flurry of icy rain that was cheek stinging.
Dinner tonight is a pizza between us with corn on the cob and some of the coleslaw. It feels more like stew and dumpling weather but never mind.
There will be pudding, with custard.
I am going to find something from the freezer for dinner tomorrow, my shopping list is a very short one this week, milk, eggs, fruit and veg. Lovely
I stopped on the way home so W could go to Home Bargains and found some bits and bobs to "bling" up Francesca,s room for her next 2 visits. I also stocked up with lentils and pearl barley as they are the lowest price that I have seen.
I could have kicked my self when I unpacked it all, I was next door to Poundstretcher and their chopped tomatoes are 25P per tin and very good quality. I only have 2 tins in the pantry so must restock next time I am close.
Knit and Natter went well yesterday, lots of chat and plenty of knitting and some crochet. One of our group is knitting up little bits of yarn into a "paper chain" It is delightful and something that appeals to me, one for the future.
Tomorrow is (so far) a free day and weather permitting I will get some garden jobs done, even if it is just getting pots and seed trays ready.
I think that I have reached the end of the news so will go and get the kettle on.
I would like to see the paper chain. What does she do with it when finished?ReplyDelete
I will ask here next week, I really fancy having a go at that.Delete
Pizza sounds just fine to me! Actually I have a couple of stews going right now, beef for Alex and chicken for me. The house smells lovely! I'm envious that you are starting seeds!!!ReplyDelete
If I close my eyes and think hard I can almost smell your stews.Delete
Ha ha! :)Delete
Fingers crossed about the cast. Sounds like your going to be busy one way or another. I need to get into the garden and sort some bits, oh and muck spread!ReplyDelete
I am off out there as soon as the dog are walked.Delete
The weather changed here yet again and another storm hit bringing snow, sleet, hail and rain. I am a tad envious of you getting started on the garden.ReplyDelete
It is only going to be a tidy up session for now, it is well overdue.Delete
Once again temperatures are well below normal, the wind is howling and I am glad I have leftover Lazy Cabbage Roll casserole to put in the oven for supper.ReplyDelete
I really need to know what lazy cabbage roll casserole is. It sounds intriguing, I make cabbage rolls but have never heard of them in a casserole.Delete
I love a short shopping list too!ReplyDelete
I am now ready to meal plan and see if I can whittle it down even more.Delete
Short shopping list here this week too. We really need to dig out old stuff from the freezer and use it up this month.ReplyDelete
