I spent some of yesterday catching up on a backlog of blog reading. I think I have caught up now and apologies if I've missed anyone. Now to keep up and comment!
I had a very welcomed letter yesterday, reminding me of the winter fuel payment. I'd pretty much forgotten about this until Sue mentioned it on her blog. It means I can turn the heating up a bit, if needed, without too much worry although, obviously, I'd rather not. One reason for knitting a couple of chunky cardigans is so I have something to layer up with, if needed.
One of the advantages of being nearly a golden oldie - well, an oldie anyway!
Today was an early start, of course, with the time change, but I woke feeling great for the first time in about a week. I've been bustling around getting things ready for a good old roast dinner with Beth and Alex. I've made the bean crumble for Beth, the bread sauce, the cranberry sauce, the batter for the Yorkshires, prepped all the veg and generally got as much done as possible short of actually starting the cooking thereof.
You never know - I might even get the ironing done today. It's chucking it down outside so there's no way I would want to go out.
What's the weather like down your way?
Have a lovely day; stay warm, dry and happy. xx
