Good morning, everyone. Welcome to a very chilly Tuesday late-November morning. No snow but, did you notice, in the reporting from Kensington Palace on the BBC news last night, there were a few flakes drifting down, which was a surprise. It's definitely going to be a warm shoes and coat day today.
Again yesterday, after months of there not being an awful lot to watch on telly each evening, I was spoilt for choice yesterday and will have to use iPlayer (bless its cotton socks) to catch up on University Challenge and Nigella's latest. I chose to watch the Paul Hollywood programme which was OK, not amazing but interesting enough, and then 'Would I Lie to You' which reduced me to tears of helpless mirth last night. It was hysterically funny at times.
Have I Got More News For You is also on Mondays but too late for early-to-bed me so that's another one to catch up on. I usually chuckle my way through that too: it's very clever they way they cut through our serious absurdities, even though I'm not terribly keen on some of the language. That's just me though!
Today, I think I will take an early trip to Sainsbury's. I haven't been for ages and I'm starting to pick up little bits and bobs for Christmas now rather than getting it all at the last minute. I definitely want to get the sausages and bacon to make the pigs in blankets which I can freeze in the tin I will use to roast them. Anything to save time!
Over the weekend I got some gluten free stuffing mix as a basis for my stuffing, to which I will add more onion, more sage and some chopped up ham. It then just needs thawing and baking in the oven on The Day.
Then I will need to do some tuition planning followed by the actual tuition. That, combined with the usual housework, more or less takes me through the day.
So I will get my coffee and start on the first thing which is posting the daily messages in a few groups I help to admin on Facebook.
Have a warm day!
