Good morning, everyone. I've woken to a chilly morning with ice on Dad's flat garage roof. Thank goodness for central heating. Yesterday was a funny old day. Bright sunshine and clear blue skies one minute and lashing rain/hail with gusty wind the next. And cold!
They reckon today and tomorrow will be fine and pleasant although not all that warm. That's OK, I'll take the sunshine and be glad.
Yesterday was a gentle day. I went to Tescos and did Dad's shopping. He'd already put the washing on so I finished it off. In the afternoon, I read and knitted (the jumper is now finished) and resisted the temptation to raid the pantry!!!
Today is more of the same, I think. No shopping but a bit of ironing and a bit of knitting. The pattern book has a nice pattern for a child's knitted aran jacket and, as I have enough yarn left, I will give it a whirl. Maybe Beth can sell it through Kitty Stitches. The main thing is that I have the yarn already and I need to keep my hands busy.
Come the evening I'm cooking haggis for dinner. No, it's not Burns Night, not are we Scottish (although my ex was Scottish) but Dad does love it and hasn't had it in these latter years because Mum disliked it. It's not hard - I'm just boiling it and we're having new potatoes, swede and gravy (and Dad will have some whisky with it).
That's about it really. Maybe I will get out for a walk this afternoon; that would be nice. Yesterday I was feeling a bit dodgy and this morning I woke with a very sore throat and an aching neck/back. It's easing with some ibuprofen so that's OK but maybe some fresh air will be just the ticket!
Have a great day and stay warm! xx
I think stay warm is the main thing for today and tomorrow. How can it be so cold.......we're in May for goodness sake!ReplyDelete
I know - it's really not at all right for May.Delete
Stay warm its perishingly cold hereReplyDelete
Same here. I'm glad I went upstairs and got my warmer coat to bring with me this weekend.Delete
Fingers crossed your sore throat and ache is not developing into the lurgy! Stay cosy!ReplyDelete
Thanks. Mine are crossed too. :-)Delete
I’ve given in and put the heating back on for a couple of hours. It’s sunny but cold and only 14 degrees in my living room!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you have a sore throat and keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn’t develop into anything nasty.
That's too cold for comfort, isn't it? Definitely a job for the radiators!Delete
Keep warm.I had asthma as a child and the doctor always said to get me out in fresh air.ReplyDelete
Did it help?Delete
The weather is so changeable. Its really chilly here in Worcestrshire today. Haggis....rather you than me! My husband tried it when we were in Scotland and he liked it. I had a Greek salad if I remember rightly! HahaReplyDelete
It was nice but the 'creamed' swede I made was even nicer. Dairylea is so useful when you're on Slimming World!Delete
We have had the wind today and it is cooler but not cold. We are even thinking we had better drain down again at the caravan when we leave as the weather is doing odd things we dare not risk a bad frost and burst pipes.ReplyDelete
Better to celebrate Burn's night late than not at all! Stay warm.
You're right, you really don't want any problems with burst pipes and flooding.Delete
Have you had a good time?
