Good morning. It feels a bit chilly this morning but I don't think there was a frost and the forecast is optimistic.
After the early frost, yesterday was a gorgeously sunny day and it turned out quite mild too. However, I don't kid myself that winter is over yet. There's plenty of time still.
I enjoyed yesterday. After dropping Al off at the station, I came home, got some finished washing out of the machine and decided it was nice enough to hang them out for the first time in goodness knows how long. After a good clean of the line (it was absolutely filthy) out it all went, rejoicing my heart as it waved in the sun and breeze - yes, I am easily pleased.
School was lovely as it always is. Tuition was also great. I get such a feeling of satisfaction from both.
And my parcel arrived. I'm afraid I have succumbed, as I said on t'other blog, to the prevailing fashion and treated myself to an Instant Pot. It looked more than a little daunting as I lifted it out of the box but an hour later I was cooking my dinner in it (mushroom risotto) and it was a great success.
I think this might become my second favourite gadget - after Thermione. Nothing can replace her prime place in my culinary heart!
Today, being Tuesday, is pottery class and I'm hoping my leaf is finished. I have a coil pot to carry on with and I want to make some decorative buttons (if I'm allowed). I'll tell you more tomorrow about all that.
The rest of the day, in contrast to last week, is pretty low key with not a lot happening. Ironing calls and I have beds to change so I'll get that done and the sheets in the machine although there won't be enough daylight left to dry them outside, I suspect, even if the weather is good.
Oh - I've finished my coffee. Time for a second dose. Have a great day, everyone, and, as the great Dave Allen used to finish off with, may your God go with you..
