Good morning, everyone. It's another misty, murky morning, much like yesterday really. It's winter, we should expect it really but it doesn't help to lift the spirits.
Yesterday was a pretty quiet day. I pootled off to Home Bargains for a few specific items and came back with a bit more but nothing too much. I popped into HomeSense as it's almost next door and came home with a few gifts and very cold hands!
After that I pottered in the kitchen, making gingerbread biscuits and the filling for some more vegetarian sausage rolls. I'll get the pastry out of the freezer later and make the final product. The filling is a bit different - wholemeal bread and more spicy so I must label them carefully. They WILL all go into the freezer to keep the biscuits company! Can you hear the voice of determination here? :-)
Today, I have a sight test at nine. I normally go into the Specsavers in town but there's a branch in our out of town Sainsbury's so I've made the appointment for that one and will do some shopping afterwards. I don't have a long list but there are things I like to get from Sainsbury's and I may as well look around while I'm there.
The rest of the day I will stay inside, potter, do some more baking (biscotti today, I think), wrap a few pressies and have a Zoom chat with Dad in the afternoon. I might go out for a walk as well - we will see.
Day eight's musical advent offering is an arrangement I've not come across before of a beautiful old carol, 'The Angel Gabriel'.
