After a sunny start, April showers came knocking on the door for an hour at 8.30 this morning. Nothing too drastic, just enough to wet the ground and save us having to water the garden. The sun’s out now, and Hubby is putting together a makeshift soil sieve. Together we cleaned the windows inside and out, and it is nice to see a streak free frontage.
We are expecting our new Satnav to arrive today (wouldn’t it be funny if the driver got lost) and have had a notification to expect it between 11 am and 1 pm. We’d had the other one for five years and had noticed it was playing up some time ago. Hubby checked the battery which looked a little pregnant so we treated ourselves to a new one.
I love the above, but since the menopause, don’t suffer with PMS anymore, just severe mood swings!
The new microwave looks rather swish in the kitchen, probably because it’s a black one rather than white as we normally have. (If anyone has an issue with that statement, you are a very sad individual LOL!) We put the old one and our knackered printer out for the scrappy and he collected it yesterday. It’s a great system. You just leave things for disposal on your drive and he comes along twice a week or so and takes it away!
Lunch today is day two of our stew. I had sufficient parsnips and swede left over to freeze down for the next one so are all set there without having to face the masses in the local supermarket to shop. We are sticking to our plan of stews for three days then something else for two or three days, then back to stew. Hubby’s weight is more fragile than mine and he has no leeway. If he goes over a certain weight, even by just a pound, it plays hell with his knees and legs, so has to be monitored daily. Mine goes up and down like a yoyo, but with SW I have a three pound window either side of my target. I’m still hovering at the excess end but staying in target, which is hard work.
We are spotting the holidaymakers from new dogs and me saying, to the dog of course
‘Hello sweetie! You on yer ‘olidays?’
So far I’ve had five yesses…….. out of five.
