Good morning and welcome to a new week. It's jolly nippy out there although no frost as far as I can tell, not yet anyway,
Yesterday I finished searching through my three low/no fat cookery books and now have a whole selection of likely looking recipes to consider trying. I eliminated all the ones that required me to get obscure ingredients (there were quite a lot) or expensive ingredients or too many ingredients or which would take too long or which I just didn't fancy and I have marked the rest with bits of post-its. There's plenty of variety there, for sure.
In the afternoon Beth came round and it was lovely chatting to her about stuff. Now she is working, I see a whole lot less of her and I miss her quite a lot but she's loving her job, which is great. Alex seems to have settled at uni too.
Today I shall be hammering on the door of the surgery. It been so long since I needed an appointment that I totally forgot on Friday that if you don't phone at eight, you don't stand a chance unless you have registered for online booking, which I haven't - yet. Well, with my hearing I have huge problems with phones so I shall go down, thanking my lucky stars that I am an early riser, so fingers crossed. I'm nervous (I always was where medical GP stuff was concerned, no idea why) which isn't going to do my BP any good but, dear me, it has to be done so it's teeth gritting time.
Once I have recovered from that, I will sort out my tuition and then potter in the kitchen, I think. My idea of using a bit of the dough to create a starter has worked in that it's produced a new loaf but I'm not sure I like the loaf! It's come out a bit doughy and very heavy but perhaps it wasn't risen enough or baked long enough so I will persist a few more times and see.
I'd better stop now and get on with other stuff that always needs doing early morning. Have a great day and stay warm.
