Good morning, everyone. The big news around here is that Sunny Essex is going up into Tier Two. The reason seems to be that 'they' (the county council or whoever makes these decisions) can see a spike on the horizon and wants to be pre-emptive. Fair enough - I'll follow whatever is required to defeat this horrible virus.
Sadly, though, I was having a friend over for a few nights and that won't happen now. Disappointing, but a minor sacrifice in relation to what some are making.
I got into town yesterday, picked up my prescription, bought some food at M&S (plus jeggings and a top, ooops) and then came home, sorted out the guest room which is now ready for when Suzanne CAN come over again, did some tuition planning for next week which will be there in place when I can resume the sessions again and had a most enjoyable session with one of my most enthusiastic students.
During the afternoon, I made some cupboard rubble bread. I found I had lots of fag ends of bags of different flours so I just bunged it all in together topped it up to 500g with strong white and made a plaited loaf, the idea being that Suzanne and I could cut at the plaited loaf over the weekend.
I found out about the tier change half way through proving so it wasn't a process I could stop! :-)
It looks nice though, doesn't it? I couldn't sleep overnight so I came down and sliced it up. Now it's going in the freezer.
At Slimming World, weigh in was a bit of a disaster but it will be fine; I know what to do and how to do it so no problems. It was a very good meeting and it's nice to see everyone.
So, a funny old day in a way with some disappointments but very nice too.
Today has suddenly become calm and empty. I want to walk to Morrisons to get some yogurts as I'm nearly out but, apart from that, the day is empty. I shall do some garden work and some more sorting shed and garage out. I can order those shelves now and when they come next week, I can really get some order into my outhouses. I'm getting there, I just need those shelves now.
Take care and stay as safe as possible. xx
