Raining here, supposed to be dry in the afternoon, but then the wind is to get up.....it seems we either have strong winds, rain (or snow or sleet), or both, most days at the moment! I went out a nice walk yesterday, was thinking 'ah the weather is half decent', then the rain clouds turned into actual rain! Ah well, I still enjoyed the walk, it's one of my free ways of exercising and decompressing! Not much planned for today really, DS off school until Wed, and so is DH, so family time, and the usual sorting laundry that never seems to dry fast enough (old heating, damp house), we're doing well on not washing clothes too often though and only when actually dirty/smelly! Anyway, I digress, just really here to say hi again and to wish you all a good week, and that you are able to cope with whatever challenges come along. Happy Valentine's to those who celebrate it, I've never been big on it, but we all have different things that matter to us.
Encouragement always works better than judgement.
The lighter mornings find me up and at 'em much sooner than the dark mornings when I sit around roaming the net until daylight! I've got quite a few jobs out of the way already. I think I may have now ground to a stop!
Have a good day folks if you can and ((HUGS)) for our poorlies or fed up. Take care one and all and be safe xx
Upstairs is sorted for the cleaners, I've taken out the three drawers from the wee chest so that they can lift it away from the wall. Incidentally, I was given that chest for my 11th birthday, along with a matching desk. Desk has long gone. How's that for MSE.
The weather here has been dire, lots of wind and heavy rain for days on end it seems, but this morning it's dry with another weather warning for this afternoon 🙁 Today I have made big pot of meatballs in Italian tomato sauce and it's bubbling away in the slow cooker ready for tomorrow. I'm making enough for leftovers to portion up and freeze too. Should really have had it today for a Valentines "candlelit supper" so pie and chips will have to do 😁 I did buy a box of chocs in my online order which came yesterday though ! I'm not worrying about the diet now as I've not really been eating much lately anyway and already lost a bit of weight without trying and we've even had fish and chips from the local chip shop ooops! It's changed ownership and the food is so much better now with a much wider range of meals including a chicken dinner and pork and stuffing rolls.
Right I'll stop waffling now or you'll be telling me to clear off again !
Hugs to anyone in need and congrats to the one, Snoozer I think, who has had lovely baby news.
Take care all, stay safe and warm
There but for fortune go you and I.
Wet and windy here, but I've been put for a walk with friends around a local reservoir. Forgot my hat and gloves so got a bit cold 🥶 but thoroughly enjoyed catching up with them.
We don't really do Valentines either but as we've had some steak lurking in the freezer for some time we're going to have steak & chips for dinner 😋
Have a good day 🌻
Not good weather for half term but then it is February - at least there is no white stuff.
Think the new film - The Duke will be worth forking out for a cinema ticket.
Got some yogurt dough out of the freezer for pizza tonight.
Wonders! Dgs has started to visit charity shops and actually bought some clothes from there.
Working on more bunnies.
