    The meals sound lovely. Have you cancelled the box subscriptions now? 

    Baileys and stuffing for Christmas - what more could you need 🤣
    No we haven't cancelled them we have another two weeks worth then we are missing a week because that weeks menu isn't that useful to us. We only have four meals a week so still need meals for the other days. The next box arrives on Thursday so we will see how we get on with that

    Today I made 12 more pom-poms 🎉🎉I am planning on making more tomorrow 😬 
    We didn't go shopping so couldn't buy the ingredients that we wanted so I took some vivera mince out of the freezer and made lasagne with the last of a box of sheets that were in the cupboard, there is enough for tomorrow night too so I wont have to cook tomorrow 🎉🎉
    The next Gousto box arrives on Thursday so we will have four new meals to try which will take us up to Monday then we can hopefully go shopping and pick up some ingredients to have a go at recreating the meals ourselves . I'm excited to see what's in the box because I've  forgotten what we ordered as usual, my bad memory does mean I get regular nice surprises 😀

    We ended up watching Bake Off and I'm sad that Chigs didn't win but glad that Guiseppe did in the end,it seemed to mean a lot to him so that's good 

    I'm now off to bed to hope I can sleep with my throbbing leg 😡

    Hope you slept ok. I wanted Chigs to win too. I think he has improved so much in a short time. 
    After all your talk of Christmas crafting you’ve inspired me to makes Christmas cards - I’ve spent a lovely couple of hours rediscovering my craft stash which I haven’t touched for years. My next task I’ll have to see if I can remember how to use my heat gun and do some stamping 👍

    I'm not very crafty :( I did buy a Xmas cross stitch from the CS so perhaps i'll have a go at that.
    I've kept all 6 recipes from my HF boxes and made one of them again using my own ingredients.  I really liked them but they were too expensive for one person, as it is just me most of the time.  
    I liked Chigs too!
    Hope you managed some sleep OBL
