Back on the wagon and back on with the boots

We had rather fallen from the diet wagon in recent weeks but today saw me whipping up a quick 500 calories in the form of grilled salmon with pesto, accompanied by a huge pile of veggies dressed with garlic and lemon and a very few tiddly new potatoes. We’ll try to stick to it and I shall find ways of managing to keep on the straight and narrow when we are away in Brunhilde.

Friedaquilter has a blog for her local kirkyard. I’m wondering if that would be a fun project for me to tackle.

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
