Brrrrrrr - these early mornings are certainly cold at the moment. Yesterday I woke very early and came downstairs without wrapping up warmly: within a short time I was shivering. This morning I wrapped up in dressing gown and slippers and it's much better. The reason? There's a frost! We've likely had more frosts in April than we have in the whole winter past. OK, slight exaggeration, but not too much! I'm very glad I haven't been seduced into putting out my tender plants by the sunshine during the day.
Sharon came round to re-chop my hair yesterday and I have to say I was as pleased as the first time. Beth also came round to share the appointment and she, also, was really pleased with the results. It's lovely not to have the fringe dangling in my eyes now.
So that's another customer Sharon has gained. We've made the next appointment!!!
Beth and I also had a good chat about LBTL. She's doing hers next week from Monday to Friday so there's a number of things we can't really share, fresh stuff mostly, but we are sharing rice, pasta and a few other bits and bobs. Bless her, she said she saw those smaller bags of porridge in Lidl yesterday (I must have just looked straight past it) so the porridge for breakfast idea is now on again! Having had that chat, I can now prepare my definitive menu for the five days (which will get changed as I get nearer to the starting point, of course!
You'll hear quite a lot about LBTL over the next few weeks so I apologise in advance! :-)
Tomorrow some friends arrive for a few days with me so today I will be planning meals and shopping. I have a voucher for £10 off if I spend over £40 in Morrisons (which I am sure I will do) so that will help. I'm planning a couple of roast dinners (chicken on Thursday and lamb on Friday) and we're eating out on Saturday. Breakfasts will be toast with things on. All I really have to think about is desserts and lunches.
Right, well, enough rambling - I mist go and boil my breakfast eggs and get started. It's nearly seven o'clock and I must get going! Have a good day, everyone.
