The day started sunny, then we had showers and now have part time sunshine.
Hubby had a prescription to fill this morning as he has a throat infection. Luckily he knew exactly what it was and what medication was needed so we were able to arrange that last night at the UTC 17 miles away.
Town is relatively quiet on the streets but shops are busy. I asked our neighbour yesterday if she’d like to join us for Christmas dinner but she said she was rather pleased with herself as she’d bought everything in for Christmas and it was in the freezer. Taking a leaf out of her book (we already have our Christmas puddings as we didn’t have them last year and they have a good shelf life!!), I bought three slices of turkey breast and a bag of sprouts today so we are half way there. I already have stuffing, so will just need to get the pigs in blankets and a bag of pre roasted potatoes. Christmas cake will be a small slab and just a dozen mince pies.
Had a slight pause as we went out to collect a chest of five drawers for the spare bedroom.
There is hardly any storage here and the bedrooms do not have any built in wardrobes. When things improve in the DIY supply line, Hubby hopes to build in a wardrobe in the main bedroom, then we can do away with the makeshift kitchen larder tallboys we purchased as they were all we could afford at the time.
Lunch today is a tinned chicken curry as it has plenty of sauce, and we are trying Hubby on his first portion of rice since surgery. It may be too much but we shall see. Either way he’s looking forward to it and I shall put the rice on the side so that he can leave it if necessary.
