Good morning, everyone. It's dark and cold outside and inside the cold is progressing as any properly constituted cold does - with coughs and splutters and general anti-sociability!
I popped into school yesterday with the bread and to carry on with the assessment (nearly finished now) and someone said 'you sound terrible'. I hadn't realised because I've not spoken for a couple of days! Anyway, you know colds - they often sound a lot worse than they really are!
I managed to get the washing done and dried yesterday but, by then I was feeling worn out so I am afraid the ironing still sits in the basket. This evening, maybe!
The slow cooker chutney simmered away in the slow cooker (surprise!) all day and it worked quite well. I did need to take off the lid for the last hour to thicken a bit more but it was remarkably hassle free and tastes fantastic, albeit a little 'immature'. It should be good by Christmas. I remembered to fill two mini-pots as well as the normal ones and they will be for the two ladies for whom I bake bread.
Today, being Tuesday, is teaching day. I have to admit that with this cold turning disgusting I could do without it but it is just one day and I am grateful that I'm not having to push myself in every day and ending up feeling a lot worse and having to have time off with all the guilt and awkwardness that entails. It's not because anyone is difficult about it - they are most definitely not - it's other things.
Well, I had better stir my stumps and get moving. Coffee first and then breakfast.
