Good morning. Another dull, damp morning and the forecast for next week isn't any better. It'd better brighten up before June, that's all I can say!
Yesterday was good. I spent some time in the kitchen making some fruit cordial and sort of candying the citrus peel afterwards so as not to waste it. I also made some lovely tomato and lentil soup using some tomatoes frozen last summer (must do that again - I peeled them and froze them whole and they've been very handy). I also contacted my friend who is going to get me some more bread flour from our local mill (she gets it at cost price).
Then I ploughed on with the cross stitch while watching back to back River Cottage episodes. I've nearly finished the most boring bit, the bowl, and have started the leaves and flowers. No major errors requiring massive unpicking - yet (fingers crossed). It's when I do that, that the project tends to be shelved!
Oh - and I ordered another of those swimming costumes from Cotton Traders.
Today looks like being more of the same except that Beth is coming over for lunch which will be lovely. And I must contact my 'exam' families to organise tuition for after the bank holiday. I've decided I will take two more weeks off and then resume, mainly because I feel very tired still and it seems the most sensible thing to do. However, a few have exams coming up and I have made them a priority.
Given that I'm feeling OK and have no pain (I'm off the tablets too), I shall probably drive to Morrisons and do a bit of a shop, particularly for fresh veg as I'm getting through them a lot faster now! It's nice not to have to weigh out the carrots any longer. In the evening, I have ironing and at some point I want to sort out my bedding shelf as there's some old stuff I don't use any more and it could or should be handed on/recycled.
So a nice, quiet, restful day really. I hope yours is good too.
