Butternut Squash and Ginger Soup with Carrot and Pumpkin Bread....which was very tasty:o~)
Veg Soup, made with carrots, cabbage, potatoes, onions, garlic and vegjelly cube thingy that Marco Pierre White advertises. 29p for a pack of 4 from Home Bargains. Thought I'd give it a try
The heavens have opened and dumped another white layer upon us:o)) Everything has come to a standstill. Have been up to local shop to get the Soviet winter supplies in:o)) Mother, of course...our Fearless One...decided a little spot of snow would not put her off from travelling a few miles, via public transport, to see her dearly beloved. This normally takes about half an hour. Today, it took her over 3 hours to get back home, due to the roads becoming vehicular ice skating rinks and the authorities not gritting or snow ploughing! Ah well, she's home now and defrosting:o))) Banned from venturing out for the rest of the week! I'm glad that Junior tutored her in the art of using a mobile phone 'cos we were able to keeps tabs on her:o)
Last night's bedtime attire was triple everything!!..including top layer of fisherman's jumper:o) Nice and warm it was, too. It's gonna blummin stay on, too:o)
Charity shop buys today were a microscope set for Junior and a weatherproof jacket for moi:o) Total cost..£2.50.
I finally gave in with my boot stash (I have loads but rickety joints prevent me from wearing them at the mo. I have to 'get real' and admit that I'll never wear them. Anyway, Junior is now the proud owner of black, lace-up, thigh length boots (flattish heel). Nice and warm they are and have taken over the position of favourite from pink slipper boots. Me..I'm sticking to my good old trusty B & Q wellies.
Don't mention dogs in season!!! Whine, whine, whine. She's even trying it on with Henry, her best mate, but he's not having any of it! lol
