Good morning. It's nice and dry today, pretty cold but not frosty and, fingers crossed, it looks as if me might get some sunshine. That would be very nice after yesterday.
We really did have some weather yesterday. Teeming rain, hail, sleet and, for a short time, snow, some gusty wind although nothing near last weekend and the temperature dropped like a stone. I went to B&M to see if they had any storage jars (they didn't) and I was chilled to the bone by the time I got in. Fortunately, Chris had the heating on when I went over for our chat and by the time I left, I'd thoroughly warmed up again.
We had a lovely chat and have made arrangements to go out for lunch between Chris' and my birthdays which are both in April. I'm looking forward to that very much indeed.
I got going on the Great British Kitchen Sort-Out and got quite a lot done. The containers I had ordered from Amazon arrived and were pretty much an exact match which I was so pleased about. I have now ordered some more which should arrive tomorrow so I can get on with it all. Exciting!
Some of the cupboards are looking a bit nicer too.
I also contacted a couple of companies that do bespoke garden rooms and a rep from one of them (the more local one) is coming on Tuesday to take a look at the site and discuss what I want and what they can provide.
It won't be cheap, I know, but I think it will be well worth it in the longer term.
Now I need to research solar panels - another improvement I'd very much like to make, if it seems doable.
I remembered to snap a photo of the current cross stitch project so here it is. Forgive the crumples. It's coming on, slowly!
Today starts off with Slimming World and it's a taster day today. I've made some of my roasted tomato and red pepper soup with garlic croutons and if it doesn't all go, there's always the freezer. :-)
Then I'm planning to stay in and catch up on the camera course a bit. I've got rather behind but that doesn't really matter all that much.
Also, I need to get the house in order so the cleaners can clean effectively.
And, assuming the containers come in good time, I can get on with all of that too.
What are your plans for today?
Take care, stay warm and safe and have a lovely day
