Herbie is absolutely over his op. So over it that this morning when I knelt down to pick something off the floor he leapt from the sofa on to my back and then onto the other sofa.
Quite the athlete.
We were at the Vets this morning for his checkup and all is extremely well. The next visit will be to get the stitches removed. Ouch. It is a shame that they do not use the ones that dissolve.
The forecast was for a filthy day with heavy rain and driving winds, we had a little rain and one downpour and a bit of wind. The temperature has been all over the place though. When I took Rufus for his walk it was very chilly, after around 15 minutes the temperature began to rise and I soon had gloves and hat off. It has fluctuated quite a bit since then but is now back to fairly warm.
I did the shopping yesterday, a quick visit to Pontardawe, Tesco, Home Bargains and Lidl. I can not get everything that I want in any one shop but at least these are very close together.
Dinner last night was a Sweet Potato, chickpea and Spinach Curry, I cooked a handful of rice in with the curry as it was a bit too loose. Saved on washing up as well, I had a lentil dahl and some onion bhaji,s in the freezer so they became part of the meal.
Tonight we are having a variation on Mary Berry's sausage supper, a firm favourite, tonight it will be with root veg including parsnips and carrots.
I have drawn up a meal plan for the next 4 weeks based on what is in the freezers and pantry. I WILL get the small chest freezer empty ready to start afresh.
The pantry is shrinking slowly in some parts, pulses, pasta and rice for instance and much quicker in others. The herbs and spices are visibly shrinking now as is the tinned goods stock. As our meals of choice has changed our stock needs to change accordingly.
I am in dire need of a cuppa, it has been all systems go today and apart from driving to the vets and back this is the only time that my btm has landed on a chair. It won't be there long as I have a list of things to do.
I wish you all a very good weekend, mine is (fingers crossed) going to be based around Hygge, a word that has cropped up several times this week. It may well be my word for next year.
I have just seen the latest post from Mean Queen,s Life After Money blog. Do go and look, there is a banned Advert from Iceland on there and everybody in the world should watch it. All Politicians should sit through it on loop for at least an hour. Pam xxxx
