Morning, everyone, and welcome to Stir Up Sunday, aka Christmas Pudding Day! It looks a bit more promising outside this morning after a very dull and dreary day yesterday. It's a lot colder though; there is a decided nip in the air this morning.
Yesterday started off well but, sadly, my tummy went on me which wasn't great. This happens from time to time, as regular readers will know. I think it is probably a residual effect of not having a gall bladder; it seems to be a recognised thing. I was rather shivery too so I whacked up the heating, wrapped myself in my fleece, found something unchallenging on the telly and promptly went to sleep!!
The rest of the day was spent taking things easy and doing a lot of knitting and reading.
The day wasn't entirely wasted - I got a few bits and bobs of ironing done and now the basket is empty again.
Today I feel absolutely fine, so that's good. I will take it easy though. The main item on The List is to make that Christmas pud. I have everything ready and the dried fruit is steeping in Cointreau as I type. I'll mix it up this morning as the steaming takes for ever.
That's it really. Short and sweet today. Have a lovely day, everyone, and stay warm. xx
