Good morning! The Beeb was right; we had rain and drizzle, drizzle and rain, and it felt chilly. I ended up with T shirt, jumper and cardigan on top and I still felt cold! Not nice. Thankfully, the sun came out later on and this morning feels much milder.
I had a nice, busy time in the kitchen. The stuffing is now frozen in the dish in which I will cook it, snuggling beside a bag of savoury crumble topping. I gave the fridge a good old sort out (much needed) so it is now as organised as it is ever going to be with room for the extras including the turkey. I used the scraps from the beef to make a nice beef meat paste thingy and I made a chicken curry to do two meals.
Today I'm off out first thing. I have to be at the opticians at nine fifteen to pick up my new glasses so will do my last Christmas shop in Sainsbury's, which is under the same roof. That was the plan originally because I expected crowds later on but now I just don't know how busy it will be - it might be dreadful if people are panic buying or having to feed themselves over Christmas when they didn't expect to have to. I'd prefer to get it all done and dusted good and early so want to be there before eight.
I have a list of things to get for Beth as well, so she will be coming over around ten to pick her things up and, I hope, have a coffee and chat as well.
Then, later on this afternoon, I'm hoping to have a nice chat with Dad. That's my day as far as diary stuff is concerned and I also hope to get a load of washing done, dried, ironed and away and I might make a spicy fruit loaf, the same basic recipe as the stollen but without the marzipan because there's none left now.
