The weather was fine and dry yesterday morning but there was a band of rain forecast for later.
'nuff said, it was dogs walked and out into the garden. Much tidying up and sorting of pots and planters happened.
A whole community of spiders was evicted along with a few wood lice and the general detritus that gathers in gardeners storage.
I went through the seeds, washed and dried the pot labels and even wrote some out.
By then it was almost 2:00 and I had a sock fitting to do. Of course that included a cuppa and quite a bit of chatting. When I got home it was time to walk the dogs and then get dinner on the go.
I did change out of gardening clothes into a me made skirt and top.
Dinner was a slimming world kebab with loads of salad and a jacket sweet potato, absolutely delicious. I did a little knitting but was nodding off so I went to bed at 9:00 and slept through till 7:00.
This is the kebab raw, I simply forgot to take a pic when cooked but it was very close to a "real" kebab. Not the donner variety.
I spotted a boneless leg of Pork joint reduced to £2 in the local shop on Tuesday morning.
I only went in to get stamps, but was not about to miss out.
There was very little fat and skin on it, that was roasted till the fat had melted away and broken into little bits,. treats for the dogs. The meat was then sliced and put into the marinade, I pushed skewers through a potato and then fed the meat onto them, 90 minutes in the oven and it was ready. Oh Yum.
BTW I never made it to knit and natter, I was searching the house for some paperwork, by the time that I found it, in the first folder that I had looked at, it was gone 3:00 and far too late.
I am enjoying the slimming world recipes and have the 50 free green recipe book now so will be working and eating my way through that.
I got on the scales this morning and over a Kilo has gone, early days I know, but no hunger pangs. In fact quite the opposite, I could not eat the sheer volume of food that some do.
I have watched a few you tube videos and was amazed at how much some eat, and why on earth they make sure to have all their "syns" everyday is beyond me.
I know that we are all different but surely it is better not to eat the syns if you don't need them. However if I was presented with a tasty piece of cheese I would have to reconsider that. Cheese is my weakness, much as I like chocolate and cake I would give them up forever without a qualm. I find it hard to envisage a life devoid of cheese though.
That is the main reason that I am not vegan, meat, eggs, fish and dairy are all fine but I could happily never eat them again. Cheese though is something else, I love it and it would have to be a health issue for me to give it up.
I am being a "posh gardener" today, this dress is so comfy to wear and I love the fabric but the pattern was wrong for it. It just hangs rather than being a bit floaty.
I received a big squishy parcel today, from Wool Warehouse.
There is an extra label upon it that says "Do NOT open until May 25". No indication of who ordered it, I am almost squirming with anticipation.
Herbie has just launched himself at me ready for a game so I will see you soon.
