It is now day four of 6 inches of snow and I felt that I needed a kick up the bottom to get going.
Steve's journey to work took less than usual and the main roads were well gritted.
My motivation was really low so I gave myself a pep talk about how that man goes out in all weathers to earn us a living and the least I could do was put that knitting down, slurp the last of my breakfast cuppa and go get dressed - yes I didn't even come downstairs dressed this morning - which I normally do.
So I have cleaned the kitchen (including yanking the oven out and finding all manner of horrors)
Vacuumed all downstairs rooms (roll on when we downsize!)
Done two loads of laundry,
Spot cleaned a rug
Tidied all through
Set the fire for later
Planned the next week's meals
And gone shopping....
And now I am warm indoors about to start the ironing. A pot of homemade leek and potato soup is simmering on the stove.
We didn't eat the beef in port last night - we just weren't hungry. So we are having it tonight. However there is an extra person for supper tonight so I shall have to s-t-r-e-t-c-h the meat with mushrooms and onions and put some chopped up bacon in the mashed potato to fill my menfolk.
Better go - be glad when the side roads are ok to go out and about - I am a rubbish snow driver; so best to stay indoors.
Much love & stay warm.
