    5 OS pleasures in your day today - part 3 18th Jul 17 at 11:34 AM
    Ok I'm diving in as I've noticed several of us have lost posts we thought had posted, and there now seems to be a serious risk of losing the whole thread. So thanks for the heads up Karcher. (and i sympathise Frith - i too like to nip back)

    I've revisited the first thread of our part 2, posted 28th October 2009. It said:
    Time for a shiny new thread The old one had got to 4500 odd posts which amounts to 22,500 OS pleasures (at least) It's so good to know that the OS life can be so rewarding.

    I'll kick off the new thread.

    1) Homemade bread and marmalade for breakfast.

    2) A walk over the Malvern Hills to blow away the cobwebs.

    3) Drying the washing outside- still, in October.

    4) Watching mydaughter making a game out of sweeping the leaves with her friends.

    5) The prospect of collecting a big order of meat from the butcher this morning and having my freezer full for less.

    1. Made yummy lentil lasagne at KW's last night. We both ate rather a lot

    2. Grated frozen brie to help eke out the sauce! (We bought a mahoosive wheel of brie the other day in Mr M's and froze most of it, but now we've discovered how melty and yum it is.....watch this space!)

    3. Lovely leisurely breakfast, even if it was at 7am!

    4. Great end to the school week, happy to be back in class

    5. Inspired by KW, I have been clearing out tons of paperwork and getting stuff ready for him to scan (at his suggestion) so I can ditch more! It's amazing how much I have, that might be useful one day (but in reality I've not looked at in 4 years, so I'm doing my best to be ruthless)

    6. Have added KW on as a joint applicant to the mortgage, the HA and the Help to Buy scheme!

    7. Planning a trip to the Lake District with KW and some friends over the summer, very excited

    8. Bought a few more YS/reduced bits in MrT/MrW's this morning on my way home; a couple of Christmassy bits and much needed tubs for break-time snacks, as they are like socks, and either the lid or the tub disappears! Still spent less than £10 on them

    9. DD had a brilliant time at a cinema visit with some friends. They are all really delightful girls and I'm so pleased she has such good friends at this stage in her life. Now that the bullying incident seems to be becoming a distant memory, she is much happier, which is a relief.

    10. Watched episode 1 of the China documentary with Michael Wood that was on a few years ago and it's inspired me to look into getting tickets to see the Terracotta Army whilst it's in Liverpool.

    Exciting times, Kittikins!


    Pleasures for today (Saturday).


    1) A lie in.


    2) Hens OK.


    3) Went to carpet town where bigger son spent his Christmas money on a new pair of trainers and a rucksack. Smaller son bought some new computer headphones.


    4) Smaller son then went to hire a football pitch with his friends and onto McDs for tea.


    5) Made a huge casserole for tea plus 2 portions (complete with a dumpling) went in the freezer.


    6) Watched Casualty.

    2. Don't look in &obile. In the end, just heaved heaps in. Lots is being given anyway. It doesn't matter. The main thing is to be O-F-F.

    3. & notes your book and b'day mentions, McCulloch:-). Have The LPB with me; t'other, & edition, is mercredi prochain, which is rather why & is proceeding>big big sud, back to old and happy stamping ground. Will rtn to UK a year older.

    4. Managed to squeeze time in for SRUFC v Dorking 2nd half and 57-24 is a You Beaut! early pressie result, merci millefois:-))). Some absolutely cracking phases of play and tries. New young Captain/coach is having real effect. Our 3rds walloped loathed local rivals, too, 59-11. Good good good. & has hopes of seeing her beloved Rouges et Noirs play at Stade Mayol samedi prochain.

    5. It's very cold, wet, very blowy here in Dover. Conscious I am travelling on 3rd anniversary of Charlie Hebdo attacks. The madness of jaffahead's 'stable genius' self-evident insanity actually gives me hope.

    Couple of days behind so here goes:

    Friday

    1. Recycling collected & should all be back to usual collection dates next week

    2. Large sm own brand meaty pizza devoured with extra toppings added (sliced mushroom & green pepper) yum yum tum tum!

    3. Finished last of the apple & berry crumble (warmed) with custard - yummy.

    4. DH had enough paint to finish walls in spare room - looks so much brighter.

    5. Picked a box to start decluttering & found some really old workplace swimming club paperwork & articles + workplace cricket club paperwork (I was a scorer for a few years & the first female invited on tour!). It was lovely to reminisce about being fit, swimming 500 yds in rivers (the paperwork is REALLY old) & remembering that I was s.c. Secretary for several years.

    6. Also in same box found mementos of a couple of holidays - one to Boston, U.S.A. & the other to the Lake District - more happy reminiscences!

    Unfortunately the box is nowhere near sorted!


    Saturday

    1. Did the shredding from yesterday!!!8217;s box - half a black bin bag - our council class shredding as rubbish not recycling.

    2. Took down XMas cards - made a note of who sent then shredded, recycled but kept 4 special ones.

    3. First attempt at hm soup - leek & potato but tweaked by grating in carrot & parsnip lurking in the fridge. Used my hand held blender (won in a comp many years ago) for the first time in several years.

    4. Hm Stilton & walnut scones. I surprised myself, the scones rose properly & were delicious with the rather tasty hm soup.

    5. Plenty of soup left for Sunday + only cooked half the scone mix so warm scones for Sunday as well!

    Positive vibes & virtual ((((hugs)))) to everyone but double doses to those who need or want them.

    Hello from my bed in the Atlantic..

    Pleasures for Friday

    1 we collected the 'new to us' car after DS wrote off the old one on Boxing Day. We had made provision as we knew it's days were numbered. I want to call it Buddy, but DD wants Belle
    2. Had soup from freezer for lunch
    3. Good train journey to gatwick. Still quiet out even tho it was 5 o clock on Friday.
    4. Had excellent meal in premier inn at gatwick. Most unexpected
    5. As everyone there was travelling to or from holiday the atmosphere was great

    And yesterday

    1. Arrived at airport to find Wetherspoons is closed for refurb so had breakfast in a Lebanese restaurant. Most delicious
    2. Flight was exceptionally bumpy at times I am not a great flier despite having done so much of it (edit, why has this been given as a pleasure??? Probably because we arrived safely)
    3. Island (La Palma) looks beautiful. Can't wait to explore
    4. Lunch outside in warm sunshine.
    5. We hadn't thought about it being epiphany and all supermarkets being closed so we have little food. Luckily our local restaurant was open and our meal there was excellent. Hoping to find something open today, otherwise it's crisps, nuts, biscuits and half a pizza each....

    (I am glossing over the fact that it rained yesterday, definitely not a pleasure

    Have a nice day all

    Morning,

    Bon Voyage to & and Vjsmum very envious, as work looms for me tomorrow

    Friday

    1. Pressing the button to submit my assignment.

    2. Rearranging the dining room for a buffet Saturday.

    3. Decided to go out for tea at Ed’s Diner. 50% off.........Restaurant closed at 7pm! .........continued on to Grand Central.......takeaway only .......ordered takeaway........took so long, we asked to sit in a booth........when food arrived, waiter suggested we stay and eat it, as it seemed silly to move

    4. Finished watching the Feud. Now need to watch Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.

    5. Booked our holiday.

    Saturday

    1.Mr A was empty. Got some kitch Xmas crockery rtc for silly presents.

    2. Pottering about making buffet food.

    3. Silly Christmas with the Kranks themed buffet. Re arranged from last week, as people were ill. It did mean keeping the Xmas decos up, but was silly and fun. The gauntlet is down for more film inspired meals

    4. Silly Xmas crockery presents were a success.

    5. Used up lots of food in the fridge, but now have leftovers

    Have a lovely day

    Enjoy holidays. Wishing you all warm, sunny weather.

    1. Met a friend for coffee. Had a long chat and caught up with lots of news.

    2. Did more ironing. Trying to iron more often rather than having an enormous amount to do.

    3. We all went to my sister's for a family get together. Lots of talk and laughter. All received a present from a roll of toilet paper, an old pound coin to box of chocs to a large bar of toblerone. All sorted and wrapped by my niece and nephew.

    4. A quiz and then charades.

    5. DS2 managed to fix his own dislocated finger so no A and E visit required. He did it playing rugby.

    Happy holidays to & and VJSMUM also enjoy your birthday whilst you are away Ampersand!

    Saturday pleasures,

    Thick, thick fog at home disappeared half a mile from yard so Lulu went out into cold sunshine.

    Eggy bread and fried tomatoes when got home.

    The peanut bird feeder had fell from its branch and one of the woodpeckers had claimed it for his own.

    Meal out with pals, my friend and I were the only ones not driving so shared a bottle of wine, the pasta helped soak it up.

    Started the third book in latest R Hobb series, you know when you can't wait but in another way don't want to because you know it's the last one.....

    1) Coffee out at the garden centre where I also found in the sale some Sophie Conran dishes in the style that dd2 loves at a price that I could afford. They came home with me for her birthday in February.

    2) Reduced bread pudding too! (and maybe, just maybe a couple of reduced macaroons fell into the basket too!)

    3) Trip out to a local antiques emporium that also has a traditional toy shop resulted in 3 lovely Melissa and Doug presents for the grandpickles for next Christmas, a floor puzzle of Animals in alphabetical order and a wooden tray puzzle for Oreo and a set of vehicle stamps and an ink pad for the Zebra.

    4) Found sticker books yesterday and pop up Christmas cards for them both at half price.

    5) French Onion Soup and crumpets had for lunch a few minutes ago, I used some damaged onions that hadn't kept terribly well in storage and made the soup. was 'licious!

    I've just got back from a glorious walk along the footpaths in the sun and I found the first snowdrops out and open shining in the sun, so lovely so there is a 6th pleasure today and I can smell Spring snapping at the ankles of winter and you can almost feel the trees holding back their buds with an effort. Many many catkins wide open and 'lambs taily' on the hazel bushes too, lifts the spirits beyond belief!

    I'm now craving Stilton and walnut scones, MrsSD!!!

    1. NSD

    2. Have blitzed most of the study and took 3 bags of paper and 2 bags of non-recyclable rubbish to the tip!

    3. £22.48 will soon be coming my way after selling a load of books that were just gathering dust.

    4. DD's netball match was a fab start to the new year - they won 27-3!

    5. Can see I've made a dent in my decluttering (just!)

    Enjoy the holidays & and Vjsmum, looking forward to reading about your adventures.

    Mculloch, I found Terry Prachett last year, almost literally, a book stall decided it was shutting down and left its stock at a steam fair, it seemed sacrilege, so I picked up what I could carry, things where I knew people would be interested and also picked up The colour of Magic, the Wee Free men, and Mort which is my favourite so far, and I’m currently reading Sorcery, so a whole world literally lies ahead. Thank you for the recommendation I look forward to reading it.

    I discovered Down with Skool a few days ago in my dad’s things, it was a gift to him in 1955 on his 21st birthday from his brother. I’ve started reading it, and researched it came from the creator of St Trinians, Molesworth I’m sure will be next but I’d like to “find” it e.g. in a 2nd hand shop. I know I can pick it up on Amazon, but there’s something about finding it.

    LaineyT: I have a book here by James Herbert I haven’t read as he died soon after so it’s his last book, I know it’s daft, but I haven’t read it yet.

    1 I kind of slept very deeply.
    2 Watched the Borrowers, and Practical Magic, very girlie and lovely and very lazy.
    3 Did a couple of loads of washing, and hoovered the upstairs to be able to put the clean rugs down.
    4 Blitzed almost anything left in the fridge veg, pots rice, gravy etc all went into a soup which was snaffled immediately. I also meal planned based on not being here for the next 4 days as house clearing, managing to eat healthy and quick with pre-cooked brown rice
    5 Animal bedding changed throughout the house, the animal paws trimmed, ears done and flea treated, bribed with treats.

    1. DD's friend had her birthday party at a fancy 5* hotel they own, so we went and nattered. They served afternoon tea and champagne but we resisted as nothing was vegan and we're doing dry Jan. But lovely to have a natter, and DD enjoyed the disco, hair salon and choc fountain

    2. We are doing the January Cure, and as part of it we did all the floors today and wiped down all the skirting boards, doors, wooden panelling and surfaces. Feel much, much better. Also changed sheets, did laundry, cleaned kitchen and bathroom. DH cleared out the shed too! The house is looking very clutter free and calm, and I am enjoying one of this weekend's missions, which was to buy some flowers. We chose white spray carnations and they're staring at me from atop the G Plan nest (a freebie!) in the living room.

    3. Food: Dinner was HM sweet potato fries, broccoli, veggie sausages, followed by clementine and coconut yoghurt. Lunch was lentil and aubergine curry. A lovely food day and plenty for tomorrow. Have also weighed out our oats for work tomorrow morning.

    4. Woodburner on and I have a couple of hours to catch up on work before Monday hits me with a sledgehammer.

    5. Family happy, safe and warm!

    Waiting on DD2 getting in and then I will be going to bed.

    Gosh! Slept through most of the night ( apart from walking when DD1 was screaming in her sleep, as she does!)Woke at 8am which is very late for me!

    Little person came dog walking with us this morning. Very cold and frosty and crunchy. Better to walk on than slippy mud.

    She got picked up around midday. I'd forgotten I was supposed to meet up with a friend after church but she was thankfully okay about it and rearranged for next week.

    Nipped to tesco as DD2 needed cash out. Needed loo roll and also RTC tulips!

    Went a walk with DD1 and ended up at friends for a couple,of hours and had a good blether.

    Decided ( lazily as it was just the two of us for tea) to go to chippie. Nipped back in to tesco and got lots of RTC bread, croissants and wraps. The freezer is crammed full. I really do not need to go to a supermarket thus week. Can I be strong and resist?

    Just going out a final dog walk!

    Greetings

    Hugs PK, such a hard time. I do not have a house to clear (at least yet), for which I am grateful


    Pleasures for today

    1 I'd gone to sleep before 9 so waking up at 5.45 wasn't as bad as it might be. Going to try to stay up for a bit longer yet
    2. Went to Santa Cruz, the islands capital, where it is five degrees warmer than where we are staying (which is halfway up a mountain) and had yummy croissant and coffee sitting in the sun
    3. Found a supermarket that was open and stocked up
    4. Walked round the town for a bit and had an extra coffee before coming back to house for lunch on the terrace. Decided to spend the afternoon here so intermittently read, dozed, sunbathed and dodged the odd shower
    5. OH cooked yummy pork steaks for tea and now we just chilling and reading and listening to music. Going to do some exploring tomorrow

    Have a good evening all
    You're out with a friend in the capital, I'm a thousand leagues under the sea

    For me

    1. Another 3” pile of old paperwork shredded.

    2. Finished the hm soup & hm scones - nom nom nom.

    3. My DH received a lovely message from my brother. (He lives in Germany with his wife & two sons and during our visit in July ‘17 he mentioned that he was unable to source an old fashioned four egg ‘egg poacher’. Just before XMas, I remembered that conversation & found one in MrA. Duly posted & received by DB a couple of weeks before XMas.). Well, back to the lovely message - apparently the elder of my 2 nephews has fallen in love with poached eggs as has my DSisil - poached eggs for breakfast for a week - the chickens cannot lay fast enough! My DB is finding it hard to get a look in! I love the idea that such a simple gift can give so much pleasure.

    4. DSis phoned me from France - saved my phone bill.

    5. Watching the new series of Vera.

    P.s. BoP, was it you who wrote “never eat pears”? If yes, I get it now as I was clearing planner programmes yesterday!

    Have a good night one & all

    * 10 week!!!8217;s post foot surgery. Two more weeks in this medical boot (rank smelling by now but sprayed
    liberally and often with Lysol)
    Then 4 weeks to transition from boot to tennis shoe. (No wonder I put this off for so long)
    Then I get to begin physical therapy.
    I!!!8217;m tired but pleased with my progress and so is the surgeon. The pleasure is I drove to this appt by myself for a grand total of 7 hrs round trip. It was soooooo great to have a bit of control back.

    * We are going to the city tomorrow and will see Quoye.
    DH is having an impinged nerve (forearm) released plus carpal tunnel surgery on Tuesday. We come back home Wednesday.

    * Finally feeling better after two bouts with the flu. I love the medicinal qualities of chicken noodle soup.

    * My orchid is blooming for a second time this year with twice as many blooms. It!!!8217;s way of saying thank you for my Finally repotting it.

    * New glasses. Cheap, inexpensive and comfortable!
    Overprepare, then go with the flow.
