Today is Monday 29th March

After a somewhat blowy night which has tested the recent fence repairs an absolute treat, we have woken up to a gloriously sunny day.
After breakfast, it was up into town to do some basic shopping and get some frozen mangoes as this is the latest in dessert line that we have discovered Hubby can eat. I also bought quark and yogurt to go with it if he doesn’t fancy custard. Ice cream has currently been kicked into touch as we can get more frozen fruit choices in the freezer.
Stew for dinner today which was really scrummy, and tomorrow will see us having cottage pie (one purchased) with extra veg for me and see how that goes down. What is left of the stew will be our final meal as it’s not really sufficient as a main dinner.

Town is quiet. The kids are on Easter break, but the street and supermarket had few people in them. We did see several without masks and avoided them by going down different aisles.
Fresh produce is looking very sad, but has anyone else in the UK noticed a shortage of tinned peaches? We can get a HUGE tin for £1, or four individual little tubs for £1.20, but a traditional sized tin of some 400g is like hens teeth. We tried the Coop,  and tow other shops that sell tinned stuff, but neither of those sold fruit at all.

When we got back, after a cup of tea, we went outside and planted our onions.
The tomatoes and cabbages that Hubby started off in the greenhouse are saying ‘hello’ above the soil and our leeks have gone nuts, even if they are last year’s and were pretty pathetic in the summer.

Just about to go out for a walk now, our first of the day and it won’t be far as Hubby has twisted his knee so we’re not pushing our luck.

Hope your day has started off well.
Keep safe everyone

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It’s certainly a lovely sunny day here too. But windy.
    I am in my flat and going no where, so all I am feeling is the sunny rays coming through.

  3. Enjoy your stroll and your dinner, as it all sounds so nice. I had hoped to walk Ziggy this morning but woke to find gray skies, a really stiff chilly breeze, and a few freezing raindrops. Ziggy didn’t want to be out there, and neither did I! I hope there’s more sunshine soon, and warmer temperatures. But I suppose the rain will bring the flowers…. good for you both on the success of your lovely garden!
