Morning, everyone. It's dull yet again outside but maybe the sun will come out later, as it has the last three or four days. It's cool but not chilly and there's a bit of a breeze. I'm not complaining - better than extreme heat any day of the week.
Yesterday turned out fairly active, in the morning at least. It started with an early morning shop, firstly at M&S for lots of lovely, healthy fruit and veg plus a few other things, and then across the car park to Aldi to get some of their produce. I usually treat myself to some sushi from them; I've come to sushi late but I do like it and it makes a great lunch with salad on the side.
After driving home and putting everything away, Chris came round for our weekly catch up and out came the sun! Perfect, just at the right time. We laughed a lot and set the world to rights, as you do.,
I'd fixed with Beth to swap a bag of tomatoes for a courgette so, after a late breakfast, I drove round, filling up with petrol on the way. Goodness, hasn't it gone up - I couldn't believe the price but there's not a lot one can do about it, is there?
I handed over the tomatoes but, to my dismay, there weren't any courgettes. Well, there were but they were either babies or, sadly, had rotted. Beth's going to cut back some of the leaves to allow the fruit to dry out better - that might help.
On the way back, I took a slight detour to the allotment, strimmer in the boot. The courgettes there had a couple that were really too small to cut but OK so I had them. There's more to come. I also came home with loads of runner beans, some for Chris, some baby corn and a bunch of sweet peas. I strimmed all round so today it's ready for a mow.
This morning, I managed to fill a bowl with ripe tomatoes so later on I will make passata with some of them, for the freezer. I will also prep the runner beans and freeze some of them as well.
Before then, it's Slimming World. It's a different leader this morning as Jen is on holiday.
The other main task is to tidy up downstairs for the cleaners - that really won't take long at all this week.
So that's my Friday - what does yours look like?
stay safe and happy. xx
