Oh help you lot. Cant stop snorting with laughter which is really annoying daughter!

Typical, OH goes away for work & the boiler starts up again! Neither me nor daughter actually sure which knob/lever to use & having had a glass of vino, both of us, it probably wouldnt be a good idea anyway! So have slightly reduced the temperature, so it wont come on as much, which is fine at the mo.

Daughter now very impressed. The dufflecoat she ordered has come & is just what she wanted- good. Only 2yrs of looking....

Inka- glad you're ok so far. I suppose that you're more used to the extremes of your weather. We'd never cope, just look how the recent harsh, used to be normal, winter caught us all out.

Need inspiration for menu now, so can update my Tesco order. Bye for a bit. J.

The muscari are starting to show their shoots in my front- I always have to take care when cutting back dead/dying stuff as I tend to think it's grass! They wont flower until they should, but it's nice to see them up & ready to go. J.

How the heck is a bed delivery not allowed to go into the house? Stupid or what?

Grr, doorbell just rung- despite note on saying not to disturb- roof salesman got very short shrift!

Having my soup & crusty bread now. Tumbler going & washer on again, so less cost to tumble a 2cnd load straight after the first. I do prefer to hang washing out but no chance today!

We've got Operation too. J.

What's for tea?

artjak- re the Remoska. Yes pricey- one of OH's 'wants' but I do use it more than I realised. If you know that your worktop space is limited, then I suspect it's not worth it. IME any gadget that lives in/on top of a cupboard rarely gets used!

Having an electric oven, & with the increasing cost of electricity, the Remoska uses so little in comparison that I'm definitely experimenting with it more & more.

Liked the pear recipe too- I do something similar in the Remoska!

Tonights' meal- Monday, so macaroni cheese over cauli- soo predictable but makes life very easy. I used to work regular Mondays so needed to cook on auto pilot. J.

Morning all.

Flo & Bjay, keep warm & drink plenty.

So far today not too bad energy-wise, but am not trying to do much. Whoevever said about the course helping- yes there's a session on how to spot the signs & deal with it.

Weather wild out there today. I did nip down to shed to collect a couple of cardboard boxes for the charity things as need the 'crate' that most are still in. 

Was going to nip to GC for new birdfeeder(s) but cant be bothered with it being so rotten out there, so am hibernating today. Keeping quiet for a while as daughter asleep until later. She had a rotten journey home with MWay closed & the surrounding roads murder. Manchester regular gridlock!

Couldnt get into that Crinkly thing last night. OH glad when I found something else.

Just noticed that OH has taken all but 1 banana with him & all the cheese bread rolls! I know I said having Tesco delivery tomorrow- yes I altered delivery slot- but really.... J.

What's the weather like in your area?

Well we did get up to the park, but the majority of leaves had already fallen.

The rest will probabaly go today- wet, wild & windy out there now. Day for staying indoors. J.
