Good morning. Another mild, 'nothing' sort of start to the day. To be honest, although it's quite lethargic weather right now, I infinitely prefer it to the howling winds we had last week. There might be some colder weather on the horizon which might be a bit more invigorating.
Yesterday went really well.
I arrived at Lindsey's with a slightly sore arm and feeling very tired but we got going and the energy returned pretty quickly. It was a good session and, fingers crossed, I think I have got away lightly with minimal after effects from the booster. I feel absolutely fine this morning apart from the slight ache anyone would feel after having a needle stuck in ones arm! Lucky me!
Mind you, I did go to sleep in the afternoon (I'm not sure if that was post-booster or just sheer laziness) and while I was asleep, Dave came round with the Christmas meat and popped it in the freezer. It's a very nice looking piece of belly pork and he also left instructions regarding how to cook it. So that's all good. I wish he'd woken me though - I don't see enough of him really, he is pretty busy.
I got the ironing done and sorted out the kitchen. So, all in all, a good day.
Today I have two things - the usual Thursday chat with Chris and I will be providing the nibbles this time. I've got out the small Christmas plates (I have four so enough for nibbles and to eat off), the mince pies are thawing nd I will put the veggie sausage rolls ion the oven at about 9:20 so they will be done when Chris arrives. It's nice to know that I have these things ready and waiting in the freezer - and time to make a few more, if absolutely needed!
Then I'm off to Val's for lunch with her, taking mince pies and biscotti with me, so those mince pies are also thawing in a box and the biscotti is in a bag.
I do like being ready!
The only other things I have on today are to make as much as I can of the nibbles for the SW tester meeting Friday morning and to get out the Festive lap trays.
I'm looking forward to the tester party tomorrow, even though I know the scales will protest again.
Well, everything seems to be plodding on nicely here at the moment. I will do this allocating Festive tasks onto a December diary sheet again next year - it seems to have worked so well with everything being done without any sense of panic. Nice.
Mind you, it helps not to have children under my feet . . . or a partner. Solo living has plenty of advantages.
I gather they are quite well know - sadly, it's the first time I have heard of them. Have you?
