Good morning, everyone. Here I am, snug and warm at my parents' home, using Dad's PC as my laptop has decided it doesn't want to connect up. A right pain! It was perfectly OK a fortnight ago and I haven't used it since so I have no idea what's happened there.
It was a good journey over, despite the mist which was almost fog on occasion. I had no holdups, not even through a village where there are usually serious backups in all directions. Lucky me!
In the morning I managed to get all my usual chores done, went shopping for some stuff to bring with me and made a nice soup for me and Beth.
Beth said something nice. She said it was nice to see that I was developing some 'personal style' for my new size. She wasn't being rude, we've talked about this from time to time. I've been concerned that in the past, because of my size, if it fitted, I bought it, almost regardless. It wasn't quite as bad as that but I'm sure anyone who has been 'large' will know what I mean. So I really haven't known what really works for me and what doesn't. After all, nothing really suited because of size.
Anyway, now most things fit so there's a wide choice and I've had to think a bit harder. Therefore, what she said was lovely and cheered me up no end, bless her.
Today I am off out early to go to Bob the Butcher's - a local and excellent butcher, Bob Chapman's, that is well known in the area and which Dad always uses. Also to Tesco for a few more things they need. Then it is the usual Saturday thing - washing, ironing, looking after Mum, making the meals, etc.
It's supposed to be getting cold and I almost brought a warmer coat with me but didn't in the end. I can always borrow Mum's duffle coat if I really need to.
Have a lovely day and stay warm!
