Good morning, everyone. It wasn't half cold yesterday; we even had a bit of snow/sleet/hail at times. I was glad I could stay in and keep warm.
It was a much better day, thankfully - and thank you all for your lovely, supportive messages yesterday. They truly helped considerably.
I got quite a lot done although not everything on my list (but that's OK, there's always today).
I got the fruit and veg in the fridge sorted out properly and dealt with a few things.
I had a bag of lemons, won in the slimmer of the week basket nearly a fortnight ago so I now have slices of lemon frozen for my sparkling water (I make it in my soda stream) and some to use this week from one that really was a bit too manky to keep. I could have made lemon curd but I'm keeping off sugar based things as much as I can.
I got all the other veg more organised and into the nylon veg bags I have for that purpose. There were a few bits and bobs that I prepped and froze - some mange tout and some sugar snap peas which will have to go into something long and slow cooked.
There were a few root vegetables that needed using and I made a tray of roasted root veg, some for yesterday, some for tonight and two portions for the freezer.
And now my fridge is a vision of loveliness! Ha!
It was too cold to potter outside; I didn't even get the washing out because at that time white stuff was falling from the sky. I cleared the ironing basket but, of course, there's now more to do today.
Finally, I spent the afternoon chatting for nearly an hour to Beth and then cutting out and starting to tack up the skirt I want to make. I'll probably get it more or less finished today. It's a very simple pattern.
I intend keeping busy again today.
This will be PE with Joe and Lindsey's PT programme. It really does help to do these although two years ago I'd never have believed I would ever say this. Sometimes, maybe pigs do fly!
Depending on the weather, I might get out and do a bit of gardening - or I might not! It feels so cold, that's the problem. I never used to feel the cold like I do now and it takes ages to warm up again.
Apart from the usual things, nothing extra today. I don't need to go to Morrisons or anything like that.
Something in the house:
That bedroom cupboard is becoming a bit of an elephant in the room. I know it needs doing but conveniently manage to avoid it. It's top of the list today; if I get straight down to it after getting dressed, I'm sure it won't take too long.
Socks (of course), getting on with the skirt, watching telly. Sadly, I've finished the episodes of The Crown and the next lot won't be out until Autumn so I'll have to find another fix.
And I do want to give that pea planting a go!
Have a great day, whatever your plans are. xx
