Good morning! Can you believe we are already a third of the way through January? Incredible how that time just accelerates away! It's flippin' cold outside too with a heavy frost. Definitely a warmer dressing gown morning!
However, I have noticed that the days are getting marginally longer again - it's a bit lighter walking home from a tuition session just down the road and I'm drawing the curtains closed just a bit later. The bulbs are coming up too. All very hopeful although I'm sure there will be plenty of darker days before spring.
By the time I had finished sorting out some tuition folders and resources yesterday, I had no inclination to start on my recipe files so that was deferred until today to be done alongside my meal planning for the coming week.
I also deferred the shopping as there's nothing urgent on the list so I decided to wait until after the planning so I can get all I need for next week too.
For someone who deferred so many things, I had a remarkably full day which gives truth to the saying 'work expands to fill the time available, I guess'. I did discover that I could download a mouse pattern vis the Alan Dart site so I paid my £2.50 and now I have another pattern of Christmas Party mice as well. So cute!
Again today, I have nothing in the diary until late afternoon and evening but there's plenty to be done. Planning (tuition and meal), sorting the recipe file, ironing, general housework and so on. Nothing tricky and nothing too onerous so that's OK.
And it is weigh day!!! Eeeeek!
