How are you all?
I’m having a cup of tea while listening to magic radio having finished my (late as I couldn’t face eating because of the pain in my legs) lunch. What about you?

Reading this whilst I wait for the daily briefing.

Just back from beautiful walk. Having cup of tea. Cooking some chicken to have cold in a salad later. FaceTime with GC soon and online bridge after that. Making the best of a bad job as I know what I’d rather be doing !!

Replying to you 😄 sorry I couldn’t resist.
So sorry to read that you are in pain, I do hope you have some medication to help.
I am trying to decide what to cook for this evenings meal, a quick fry up or something a bit special that will need a bit of effort, 🤔Fry up it is then.
Best wishes .

I’ve just got my washing in so lovely to dry it on the line. I’ve taken one of 4 Shepard’s pies I’d made out of my freezer for dinner. Watching the news brief then I’ll have dinner after 6 maybe some ice cream for dessert.

Right now, watching Pointless while the soup maker makes our tea. After that I’ll be ironing the curtains I’ve just brought in. I’ll have to hunt the iron first - it’s about a year since I last used it.

Have just chopped veg (leek bought today was rotten angry) and assembled a chicken bake. It's now in the oven. Am now relaxing whilst it cooks.

About to make a cup of tea, eat a pear and watch House of Games.

We’ve ( well DH not me) hauled a wrought iron gate that was made for the side pathway, out of the brambles where it has languished for 20 years and has fixed the hinges up and it’s done, well almost, just the tricky thing about how to fix a lock on it.its incredibly heavy, but it’s up, he wants to have it shot blasted and painted but I like the shabby look, but we will save that argument for another day.
Anyway it’s up, I had to stand next to him to give moral support and pass the screws, hammer, and other bits and bobs.
Now we are having a cup of tea and a Wagon Wheel!

Just got in from gardening. Digging lumps of couch grass out of heavy clay, my poor back!

Just fed cats and peacocks, now for me. Jacket spud, Longley farm cottage cheese and a Asda Supergreen Quinoa & Kale Salad, which is delicious.

Then I will watch Richard and Judy Book club. Not sure what else.

Just sat down to catch up with GN. Had a very busy day being very productive, cleaning, baking, cooking and had a brief seat in the glorious sun. DH catching up with news then it will be Corrie at 7.30 then no doubt something recorded from last evening. A very well deserved seat I think wink

EllanVannin Wed 06-May-20 18:59:51

Just watching my Home and Away. It's on every other evening instead of every evening for now----even that's suffering.
Don't know about later though, it's such a lovely evening.

I spent an hour on hold this afternoon to TUI . We should have gone on holiday in March and we have been waiting for the magic code TUI are sending so you can rebook with a 20 percent discount or ask for you money back . I tried 6 times to get through to them and was just told they were busy and cut off then by a miracle I was put on hold . We could not face the worry of rebooking and then being reluctant to go even if it was in a year's time . We cracked open a bottle of pink bubbly to celebrate . I olly wish there was something , apart for a holiday , that I really wanted .
Even a holiday in the UK would be lovely with someone else cooking for us .

I’ve been sorting shrubs out that my neighbour put in a skip, I can’t bear to see live plants thrown away.

Hetty58 Wed 06-May-20 20:28:53

Floradora 'holiday' in your garden, order in nice meals and watch films in the evenings.

bikergran Wed 06-May-20 20:43:11

I only managed as far as speed camera a few weeks ago.So quite pleased. smile

Just watched Afterlife made me cry

GagaJo Wed 06-May-20 21:43:19

Washed the cats nether regions. Put cream on it. Tried to pill her. Got bitten. Gave up on the pill. Put the cone of shame on her. 5 mins later, picked up the cone where she’d taken it off. 30 mins later, tried to pill her again. Bitten again. Gave up. Brian wave! Tuna. Hid pill in tuna. Gave tuna to cat. Cat ate tuna. Picked up pill. Repeated the process. This time... success!

Think I’m ready for bed now.

GabriellaG54 Wed 06-May-20 21:43:43

Right now? Sprawled on (not in) bed amending tomorrow's delivery and looking for free tomato plants on Nextdoor. I've 2 half frozen Activia rhubarb yogurts on a tray, waiting to be eaten. Then wmwui k shower and sleep 🥱😴👍
Can't get delivery of growbags for love nor money. Maybe Monday if Boris lets us out 🤞

Dollymc1 Wed 06-May-20 21:51:22

I'm at last finishing crocheting a blanket for the foodbank, I started just before the lockdown, how slow is that?
I find that I have been distracted and unable to concentrate far more than usual
Not surprising I suppose

GabriellaG54 Wed 06-May-20 22:15:33

No idea what wmwui k is all about. Gremlins 🤪😂

Missfoodlove Wed 06-May-20 23:08:41

In bed having 10 minutes screen time after a busy day.
I’m very excited to get up in the morning to see if my first ever sourdough has worked🤞
A week of feeding the starter and finally made my first dough.

GabriellaG54 Wed 06-May-20 23:15:03

I wonder if or when this enthusiasm, excitement even, with baking, cooking, sourdough, slots, flour, plants and clearing out, will fade. 😳😄
