This morning did not start well; we both slept heavily and OH turned the alarm off and went back to sleep - me I didn't hear it I was still deep in slumber; and then it was all rush and tear in order to get to work on time. I am not good if hurried in a morning I like to come too gracefully and gradually!
I have been given a load of plums from someone's freezer today so have some plum jam to do. I also have a batch of stock paste to make think will do that this evening - have lots to do just not have the energy to do it.
We have pizza and garlic ciabatta with pate for tea - wanted something lighter than last nigh. We had Cornish pasties,mashed potato and onion gravy which was scrummy and warming and proper comfort food especially after a dark damp day.
It has been a very foggy past couple of days resulting in teeming rain last night. Its been grey and cold today but thankfully some of the mist had gone which made travelling a little easier although it is still damp and cold. Oh for a log fire. One day I am determined I will have one, one day - hopefully sooner rather than later. I have the things like the coal scuttle, the companion set, horse brasses etc etc so I have all the accoutrements to show it off - just need the actual fire!
Will have to get a wriggle on - am not in tomorrow night am off out and about again and hospital again on Thursday dinner, up town on Friday dinner and then on holiday for a week but a working one.
