Oh, my goodness, it was cold yesterday morning. When I posted yesterday's entry, I hadn't looked out - it was too dark anyhow. When I did venture out to go to the freezer I got a shock - frost, the first frost of this season and it was flippin' cold! It warmed up, of course, but it was cold come the evening too, after a gloriously sunny Autumn day, full of colour. It's exactly the same this morning with a harder frost that yesterday. There will be some car scraping this morning, that's for sure!
I managed to get loads done and, really nice, I have a clean and tidy (tidy for me anyway) downstairs. Upstairs is fine apart from the small room which is due a real blitz! The Christmas parsnips are now in the freezer, as are the pigs in blankets. I didn't get the sausage rolls done so that's on today's list! Dinner was delicious - I peeled two potatoes that didn't look that big but by the time I had partitioned them there was more than enough so guess what - leftovers for tonight. Three cheers!
Tuition happened and was lovely. I'm getting very fond of my pupil and we are getting on a real treat. Yesterday's session threw up a few gaps which I can work to fill, which is great.
One of the things about living alone is that I don't have to talk much so, from that point of view, my cold didn't inconvenience me. However, chatting to said pupil started the cough and reminded me that I may be much better but . . .
So, on to today.
What I thought was happening this morning isn't, so I have a sort of free morning which I will fill with finishing off stuff for our Christmas stall, finishing off the planning and making the sausage rolls which will be frozen uncooked so as many as I want can be cooked when I need them. Convenient!
The afternoon is in school, granny helping in Y2 and then it is my other two tuition sessions.
So, quite a busy day, all in all. Enough to keep me out of mischief, for sure!
B: bacon and tomatoes (I have bacon left over from the pigs in blankets and my green tomatoes are ripening rapidly on the window ledge); apple.
L: It was going to be beans on toast to use up the other half of the baked beans from yesterday, but as I changed that to marmite on toast, it shall be home made soup! I'm working through my store of frozen soups quite nicely now.
D: ham, corn on the cob, leftover roasties and a BBQ sauce
