Hi all, glad people's w/ends & parties went well.
Am fairly warm at the mo, despite a rotten day weather-wise. It's been cool, damp, wet & yes very Autumnal. Gas fire on & daughter gone back to bed! It was just after 2am when she got back from work & then OH got up & left by 5.30am & the police helicopter was somewhere around for ages in the night, so I'm tired too!
We've been down at Lowry outlet mall & nearby retail park. Got myself a fleece buff, as planned, & a new rucksack. My old one hasnt got covered seams & so when it rains no guarentee stuff stays dry inside. Will still use older one though until those seams do break! Daughter got herself a new super dooper suitcase to replace her old one, which she insisted we kept, so it went up into the loft with the others. No idea where she'll keep this new one- not in the spare bedroom that's for sure!
Have decided not to get cross about being unable to cut the lawn. It's not that long & am not proud of it, as just a green space between beds. That way IF we get a couple of dryish days can then do a cut, but may not.... Bulb pots/planting more important.
Got on to the heating/electrical company first thing this morning & someone coming Wednesday morning. They also do supply & fit new boilers so will discuss that on Wed. Drat, as was going down to NWorcs to meet up with friend, but boiler/heating takes priority. Will rearrange with friend, she already knows wed off, but, as she is also having a household crisis her end, no problems.
Found a nice 3 in 1 new waterproof coat whilst out, but needed the size they'd not got in store & it's not on web site either in the size/colour I want. Oh well not to be. The old one will continue in use a bit longer & get increasingly scruffier.
None of the 50ps were special ones we did have quite a lot between us, for some reason.
Right off to start a tomato rissotto next. Was going to do ratatoue, but it takes longer so will probably do tomorrow.
Back later I expect. J.
