I was, however, terribly lazy, especially in the morning. I got stuck into one of my books and the time just - went! One minute it was 10:00 and the next minute it was nearly midday. Time can be odd like that, have you noticed?
However, I did manage to do a baking of bread for Beth (even if I over-proved it) and I managed to cook quite a nice simple lunch too. Them in the afternoon, while Eddie was getting on with setting up the new PC, I set to and made the winter spiced lemon curd and, you know what, it is absolutely delicious. I wouldn't call it frugal, far from it, in fact, with lemons, eggs, butter and sugar, but the flavourings (cloves, cinnamon, star anise with vanilla) turned it into something I will be proud to give to my friends as a gift closer to Christmas.

After that burst of energy it was lazy-time again and so it remained for the rest of the day, more or less.
Today is definitely swimming after missing two days on the trot. Then it's back home for some sewing and some cooking - specifically that microwave tomato risotto. That's probably about it. Sounds good, doesn't it?
Breakfast: porridge with yogurt and pineapple, orange
Lunch: scrambled egg on toast, yogurt
Dinner: tomato risotto, runner beans, pineapple and yogurt
