Morning, everyone. Brrr, it was cold yesterday and it's cold now too, so cold that the heating has clicked on. I have on my warm towelling dressing gown and slippers and I can still feel it. It's also windy and rainy and, in fact, absolutely disgusting for the last day in April. It has to warm up properly soon, right?
Firstly, for Sue: here's the jam recipe you mentioned. I hope you like it.
As predicted, yesterday was a lazy day, a gentle day, a get-on-with-your-cross stitch day. It was also a day when the aches came back somewhat so I was glad to take things easy and go with the flow. There's always one day, isn't there? A reminder, if one were needed, that I am listening to. I'm fine now, don't worry, but maybe I needed another poke apart from the ones some of you are giving me!
I had a little mooch around the Approved Foods site. I don't use the place much as most of the 'bargains' are unhealthy, fatty, sugary, processed stuff which doesn't appeal at all but today I got lucky and they had bags of Hovis granary flour. I love that flour and use it half and half to make a delicious loaf but it's virtually disappeared from the shops now, for some reason, and I had used my last bagful. I ordered loads of bags and will keep them in the freezer which works well. I also got a few more bits and pieces, like chicken stock powder which I use quite a lot, but the flour was the main part of the order.
I'm on the beetroot juice now. I'm not sure whether I like it or not and certainly I don't look forward to it with unmitigated pleasure, but I will plug away at it and we shall see. It can't hurt anyway. Also I'm going to get down to the gym today to join. I NEED to get that done and then started as soon as I am able.
So - exercise, low sodium, healthy diet, losing more weight, lots of veg, beetroot juice and meds from the GP. Can't do more! Unless you know better, of course. :-)
I've decided, after yesterday, that I'll leave tuition another week before restarting. You never know and it's less than a week so that seems the right thing to do.
So - today I will pop to the gym, I have some washing to do and I ought to change my sheets as well, I want to Google for some more nice, low fat and healthy recipes. I have to sort out that bedding I mentioned before and it's a nice, gentle task so it's on the list. For the rest of the time I will continue to indulge myself by sitting and resting and making lists - at the moment it is 'what to take to Center Parcs!).
Sounds a nice day, doesn't it?
