Boy hasn't it been cold today. Too blooming cold. I have had a lazy weekend for me I have not done very much apart from crotchet, some washing, and I cooked tonight's tea. So it has been quite a relaxed day. For the best part I have closed myself in the front room and kept this room warm. Even Missy has abandoned her master in the computer room and is sat on the back of the setee hogging the radiator. She like me does not like the cold.
It is when we have weather like this that I wished I had a log fire/log burner here. I was having this coversation with my mother earlier on and she asked if we would put one in here; but it will not happen here due to it being a rented property, it is an old house (over 150 years old) and where the landlord has not kept the maintenance up everything has been done on the cheap and nasty and I think there could well be hidden problems and I do not think the landlord would countenance it in any event. So the log fire/open fire will have to go on the wishlist for the dream house that has not yet materialised. If it is your own house and there are problems then you put them right as you go along no matter how much it costs.
For this evening's dinner I have not done a roast like I normally do but a chicken stir fry padded out with carrots, leek, cauliflower, broccoli, some crystallised ginger, chilli sauce and a sweet and sour sauce served with white basmati rice cooked in the microwave. A change but still very tasty.
Whilst preparing dinner I had quite a bad attack with the Raynauds syndrome with both my hands and my feet. losing the circulation and my hands going puce then purple and slowly the circulation comes back again. It is painful at the time of the attack but soon passes. This is one of the reasons why I have to keep warm. Can't you tell its winter. The Aran jumpers and the thick socks are coming out for my walk to work tomorrow. I am supposed to be out tomorrow evening weather permitting. I think it will depend on whether we get the snow.
At least it is cosy here in the front room.
Right am going to do a little more crotchet and then get my clothes ready for work tomorrow and get my hair washed and dried before going up the stairs to Bedfordshire (Hottie Bottie is coming up tonight as well).
Catch up soon but please keep safe and warm
