It was pretty chilly last night so we set the thermostat on an anti-freeze temperature setting and hopped into bed with my lavender wheatie-bag pre-nuked for some warmth. Tonight is predicted to be even colder so I am more than happy that Tracking tells me that my new microwaveable hot water bottle will be in today’s post.
We have some sun today but the temperature is hovering at around 5 degrees. I have a set of thermals on and today for the first time dug out a sweater for a top layer. Until now I have been in cotton tops and sweatshirts. I have my Warriston smock out and donned it to walk along to Reception to alert them to an imminent courier delivery. Gousto tell me that my week’s menu will be here between 12:30 and 14:30. It feels like Christmas! All parcels and new jumpers.
Mr L was chatting to a permanent pitch client earlier and she was able to tell us that there are no problems in getting Tesco to deliver here and that the Farm Shop that delivers is excellent. I foresee more time in the forest and less time on the bus with shopping.
In Other News, Gill is sending me emergency yarn and roving supplies so that I can make myself some thrummed slippers. I am looking forward to those. I do hope that I have the right needles with me!
Also in Other News, Mr L’s blood test for Lyme Disease has come back negative. However, this was expected as it often shows negative in the early stages. He has to complete his course of antibiotics and then return to see the doctor in mid-December. The bulls-eye rash has now completely gone and he is otherwise symptom-free still.
Nell and her dad are out in the forest, geocaching. I am here waiting for my Gousto box and have
every some intent of reading about Stalin whilst they are gone.
