Dh has been out for the day today and had taken the car. I thought I would be able to get out and do some walking but, on waking up to wind and rain and knew the chances would be slim. I don't enjoy walking in really bad weather as it is so hard for me to dry wet weather gear.
Dh left at 7:15am so after making him coffee and toast I decided to have a practical day with lots of sorting out, reading and food preparation and I wanted to feel lovely whilst having a house day so I put my hair up in Victory Rolls, put a smart dress on along with thermal tights and set about making the most of a wet Saturday indoors.
I started by putting a load of washing in to soak. The washing machine is still decommissioned. I was really pleased with the way dh's white shirt came up with a hand wash, especially cuffs and collars :)
Next it was Burts litter tray that needed attention and I combined that with a bathroom clean.
After that it was a stop for a cup of tea and I read some of my new magazine! Although one of the problems of buying old magazines is that if there are three part stories, I only get to read the first or mid part and never find out what happens! The one in my Red Letter magazine was really good and I can't find the next issue!!
Burt was then sick in the lounge so I took the opportunity to shampoo half the carpet after hoovering.
I sorted the food we have in. We have a load of plums I was going to freeze but after trying one, they were so delicious I know dh and I will get through them before they go off so I left them. I put a veggie soup on in thr slow cooker which will be portioned and frozen for work lunches. I also had 3 bags of parsnips that needed something doing to them. I used one bag in the soup, then peeled and chopped the rest into chips and popped them in the freezer.
Lunch was scrambled egg on toast with a side salad and was lovely. I also cracked myself a few Brazil nuts.
There was a break in the weather in the afternoon so I whizzed up the lane and back which was 2 miles. The rest of the afternoon was much more leisurely and when dh came back we had a game of rummy (I won!).
For dinner we had sausage and noodles with veggies. It was a really nice day, despite the weather and I am itching to get up the allotment!
