Nothing much to report

I thawed a pot of minestrone for my lunch but it turned out to be French beans in tomato sauce, so I made a sandwich from bits I found in the fridge: homemade Granary roll, smoked ham, cheddar cheese and some of those wonderful spicy beetroots from Tesco. The beans in sauce may reappear tomorrow if I cook a burger or something similar from the freezer.

I had four loads of washing on the line eventually today. It is not drying well, though a slight breeze has sprung up since earlier. I may be late to bed tonight if the sheets are not properly dry soon.

Not much else to report for my day.

  • I make incremental progress on the housework but not with any great sense of conviction.
  • I caramelised some fruit this afternoon, though that had not been my intention. It will take several days to clean my pan and I doubt it will ever be the same again
  • I knitted the heel flap on Mr L’s sock while watching Ripper Street. I may stay with the Victorian theme later and watch Burke and Hare. No doubt Mr L would be scathing of my viewing choices but, well, he’s not here, is he.

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
