2011.08.02 My Day

For the best part of today life has been good apart from the fact that my jam maker is not co-operating but I am looking into that.  I had a lovely lunch with one of my good friends from work.  I don't have many friends but those I do are good ones and I would trust them with my life.  As if often the case with all my good friends they are not afraid to be themselves and often come over as characters, and a good belly laugh.  I even have very good Internet friends who I have never met, but nonetheless the bond is there.  Work has been hectic but that is par for the course.  OH was supposed to fetch me but I ended up having to walk home as the car was not co-operating again. On the positive side the walk did me good but I hurt now and it will not be long before I am up away to bed with the cat, my constant companion when I am home.  OH doesn't see anything of her during the day but as soon as I come in at night down she comes to greet me and then snuggles up.

Turning back to the car again I am worried as if it is something big we just don't have the wherewithall to do anything at the moment and we were supposed to be going away in September, but I am not sure that is going to happen at the moment although I sorely need the break again.    We very much need the car it makes life easier all round. The chap we bought it from  (a local trader) is coming to have a look at it tomorrow as it is covered by a warranty of sorts.  So hopefully something can be done.  So with the car and the jam pan...... argh virtual hari kari wasn't far off.

But I have been jam making the Greengages are now all done.    I have calmed down a bit.  I have Apricots to tackle tomorrow for Apricot jam so another busy evening tomorrow.  At least I am taking care of the pantry.  There's a lot that needs doing and I really need to get a wriggle on as so little time.

Will catch you all shortly

Take care

  1. Hope the car gets sorted out cheaply! They can be a right pain can't they?

    Night, night. Hope your aches and pains soothe overnight.

  2. I got mine from Lakeland but they are currently £119 to buy from new. Look around the Internet to see if you can find one a bit cheaper. I love my little jam maker to bits because it frees me up to do something else whilst the jam is cooking.

    Nighty night and catch you soon
