Today is Wednesday 12th January

It’s 3.15 in the afternoon and I have just accessed my blog.
Although the day started frosty and chilly, it held promise of being sunny and dry so rather than stay in, we decided to go for a walk in the woods.
I took the camera and got a few decent pictures so they will follow in a separate post.

I read the meters this morning as usual and our gas usage is up, but then it’s been so cold lately, the heating has been running longer so I’m not surprised. The good news is that we already have a nice cushion on our account to cover the winter months, and everything is actually as it should be.

We were out all morning so lunch was late, but it was straightforward and quick to make. I was going to do a chicken curry but that got amended to ginger and pineapple chicken instead and I have to admit, it was rather delicious! I remembered to add the soy sauce this time as it had got pushed to the back of the cupboard and forgotten about. It really added that little something to the sauce and I sliced a carrot as well because I like the extra texture.

Since being home, the council have been out to replace the bulb in the street lamp opposite our lounge window. It’s a shame really because we hadn’t been in the spotlight for a couple of months. They’d changed the bulb a month or so before that and it failed relatively quickly so we were secretly pleased! Maybe the same thing will happen………..

Keep safe everyone.

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.

    Glad you had a nice walk in the woods! Ginger and pineapple chicken does sound delicious. I hope the rest of your day is relaxing! xx

  2. Those bright lights shining in the window are not conducive to sleep. This area isn’t well lit (by the street lights anyhow), so some of the neighbors have taken it upon themselves to be the beacons in the darkness with halogen light bulbs in their yard lights. *sigh*.

    • I’m glad our bedrooms are at the back of the property, but in the next road they’d installed the softer LED lights in the street lamps. Wish they’d do that here!

  3. Maybe a birdie knew you didn’t like the light and pecked the bulb for you. Lol

    Being in an apartment complex the lights at night are always on, for safety of course, but unless I want blackout curtains which I certainly do not, it’s never completely dark.
