It took Hubby and I over two hours to do some shopping yesterday for ten items on our list plus four for our neighbour.
Sounds awful doesn’t it.
Have you got images of queues, full car parks, busy roads?
Travel time to and from was one hour fifteen minutes. Filling up with fuel took ten more.
Stop off for potty break for dog fifteen because she wouldn’t co-operate and we were getting cold.
We were in and out of our two supermarkets of choice which were at opposite ends of the town in under twenty minutes. We got everything we wanted without difficulty, all the traffic lights were in our favour as there was practically nothing on the roads, and it was an exceedingly pleasant experience. Time? Oh yeah, we were home by 9pm.
We had some horrendous rain last night around midnight. The wind picked up and we heard icy shards hitting the windows. We were waiting for crashes and bangs, but the garden fences and greenhouse were all intact this morning.
Tom and Jerry have been watered manually.
Today we walked the dog in the park. We walked the other way round this time but she still had to sniff everything at least twice.
I took this picture from the little bridge with my phone:
This is how it was last month: you might recognise the lamp post!
I cooked a spaghetti bolognese for lunch today. We haven’t had one for a while and in addition to the onion, minced beef and garlic, I added a chopped carrot.

I grated some cheese on the top and I must say, it was one of the best I’ve made.
For dessert, I used what was left of the can of pineapple from our ginger and pineapple pork the other day (no, I didn’t post anything on that), made up my stodge mix without the sultanas and put that on the top. It was all rather delish with custard. Sorry, no photo.
