Good morning, everyone.
The forecast isn't brilliant for today - light rain for most of the day. We were lucky yesterday; the sun shone, it was really mild (up to around 15C) and the radiators were off all day. I put on my coat when I went into town and by the time I was heading back to the car, I was boiling!
I did my online SET class, interrupted when the internet dropped. Grrrr. It's been doing that; I gather there's some local work going on but it's always been mid afternoon before.
Then it was over to Chris for your good old natter. She's feeling 100% now and has been out and about all week doing birthday things. We're going out for lunch together next week to the cafe at Longacres (was Wyvale) which does really nice lunchy things like jacket potatoes. It's to celebrate both our birthdays (mine's in April).
After breakfast, seeing as the weather was so nice, I drove into town and went on a flour hunt. The shops I tried!! Nothing in the Grape Tree, nor in M&S, Holland and Barratt or even the very big Tesco.
There were other flours galore, 'ethnic' type flours, flours I'd never even heard of but no wholemeal SR flour. So that was disappointing. However, in Tesco, I got my bag of frozen pineapple chunks and in Lakeland I found two little trays that fit inside Nellie the Ninja perfectly, so it wasn't a wasted journey and it was nice having a wander round.
When I got home, I resorted to good old Amazon and found a supplier that wasn't asking an arm and a leg for the flour. I had to buy more than I needed but I checked and flour keeps well long term in the freezer (did you know that?) so I have some winging its way to me today. I could have ordered some direct from Dove but it was more expensive, there was postage and it just wasn't worth it.
Mind you, wandering around the Dove site was very tempting!!
When I got home, there was a little parcel on the doorstep - it was my new little clock that I thought was coming today. No complaints: I got it set up and it's working away nicely. I didn't realise how often I glanced at the old clock until it wasn't there any more.
Today is Slimming World day, of course, and Gabriela emailed to ask could my cleaners come this morning, so the house is all nice and as ready as it ever is good and early today. I might still be out when they come.
There's nothing else in the diary and I'm going to make no plans but just go with the flow, so to speak - see how I feel. Realistically, that means crochet and YouTube for a while and maybe a walk as long as it's not raining. We'll see.
Have a great day, everyone. xx
