A very early good morning to you! It's stupid o'clock so I will probably get some more sleep later on. It seemed very silly,, however, to lie awake trying to get to sleep when there's work to be done and I'm ready to do it. So here I am, downstairs, smelling the breadmaker doing its work and blogging instead of working. That's life!
I really did intend to go into school yesterday afternoon. Honest! I sat down after lunch for a short time and woke two hours later by which time I really couldn't be bothered. So what I was going to do will have to wait! :0)
It was helpful to have some time in sleepland as yesterday was what I call a 'hungry day' - a day when I could have eaten anything and everything in sight, should I have had it in the house. So it is just as well that I didn't really, isn't it? I'm feeling hungry again now, buit that's normal given the time, the smell of bread baking, etc. I can wait!
After my excursion into Amazon via Nectar, last week earning plenty of Nectar points when I bought my camera, and having reviewed my winter show situation and decided something needed to be done, I began to wonder if I could do the samer to get into the Hotter site. I almost always buy Hotter shoes nowadays, For a start, they seem to be the only shoes that last me any reasonable length of time and also they fit comfortably. Worth the extra, although they really aren't that expensive in comparison with any reasonable quality shoe.
So into Nectar I went and yes, I could get to Hotter, so across I went, bought a couple of pairs of shoes and earned the Nectar points. I'm saving them for redeeming when I do the Christmas shop. And now I'm set up with shoes and boots for winter.
Talking of winter, I needed to pop into Morrisons yesterday afternoon for some strong bread flour and a headline in one of the papers caught my eye - OK, so it was the Daily Express so not necessarily terribly reliable but anyway . . .
It proclaimed that we are in for some 'arctic' weather with snow in Scotland and frosts so I indulged in a little fantasy about snowdays before half term.
It's Sunday, so DD and DG are round for lunch. Tomorrow, they are embarking on a project together, to eat as they would have eaten during WW2 - rations and all - as much as they can. With that in mind I thought I would provide a more substantial lunch than usual so we're having vegetable pot pie, roasted root veg and broad beans. Yum yum. That's why the breadmaker is in action. I'm making some 'home made' bread for them and as soon as this loaf is finished I will oput another one on. Thinking of it, I could make a Grant loaf, couldn't I? Maybe during the morning . . .
And now I MUST do some work!!!
