We've had a charity bag through the door @Gers so some more decluttering for us too. They collect tomorrow, so will have a sort out later. Unfortunately, they won't take books so I'm advertising them on FB MP. May also try Olio.
WFH today and we are having veggie sausage tray bake tonight which means tackling a BNS - almost, but not quite as bad to prepare as a swede.....
There's washing to do but will wait until tomorrow as it's meant to be dry - let's hope the forecast is correct.
Have a good day all and hugs to the poorlies.
Pouring with rain again and set in for the day, it seems we have had non stop rain for ages !
I am supposed to have three clients today but one is poorly so only two coming, I still get paid for all three so all good, I am not sure what to do today as its raining off and on all day, I shall ask them when they come, may be a baking and crafting day.
Dinner tonight will be hot dogs in a bun with a few chips, will do the potatoes this morning before my guests come.
DW has been emptied and I have put a wash on and had a tidy through, will run the hoover over as well.
Have good days all xx
Rained most of yesterday but nice and bright this morning so that's good. It was nice to see everyone at work yesterday but I felt shattered by lunchtime! Not in till lunch time today so I can have a quiet potter this morning.. Have some admin jobs to do so will get them out of the way.
DD and little one are coming home today - they had to go to hospital on Sunday night as little one has tonsilitis - she has 10 days of antibiotics so hopefully will be on the mend soon.
Nice chat with eldest DD last night - she was feeling sad as her closest friend has left Germany as she has a new job working in Dubai. DD already has plans to visit her next year when she's settled.
Well I'm going to get on. Hope everyone has a good day today x
Tuesday again so it's coffee and lunch day with BFF. But as I stuffed myself at the carvery yesterday with family,(even finding room for pud and custard!) I should really pick from the healthy eating section of the menu today!
I'm another yet to pass go with Xmas shopping. I've always been like IZZIE buying things throughout the year but this time I haven't been able to summon up any enthusiasm at all. Maybe because we have such a dire selection of shops nowadays and I can't face traipsing around big shopping centres these days. . I think I foresee gift cards for all the Gt nephews and nieces I have to buy for this time!
DD starts her new job today and is feeling apprehensive after being in her previous job for so long (32 years!!) She will be working at the lovely hospice that looked after both Bob and I so well in his last 3 weeks. I hope it all goes well for her and she has no regrets.
Have a good day folks if you can and ((HUGS)) for our poorlies, fed up or the MIA. Take care all and be safe xx
Hugs to all those who need them have a good day whatever you are up to stay safe, dry and warm xx
bit overcast down here in Kent. Washing on airer today I think. Haircut for me today, not much else planned.
keep safe and warm all.
We're back last night from a few days in Derbyshire, including a visit to Chatsworth House, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. It's warmer back down here so will plough on with the shopping and ironing and catching up with the housework. I can see that DS visited whilst we were away as he's added 3 bags of stuff to the pile in the garage!
DH fancies a chilli tonight so will make that later and then there will be leftovers for me tomorrow, as he's lunching with former work colleagues.
I have a band of artificial flowers waiting to be put on my new Morris hat but will look at knitting a few as well, to cover any gaps. Bought some lovely little feathery butterflies in the market at Bakewell yesterday so they will also be added. It's a major work in progress but needs to be finished soon.
@Gers: your talk of socks made me realise I've got lots of those very short trainer socks stuffed in a drawer so will sort those out and probably let them go to a charity shop. Will let go of the vision of me ever needing them again for jogging!
Happy Tuesday everyone.
