This morning – I remind you it is Saturday – the alarm went off at 8am! 8am! I ask you! Why? Because *someone* arranged for the window people to come and measure up at 9.30am. Not a good move in my book. Still – it got it over and done with.
The father and son who do the window fitting are so funny – typical Devonians – extremely friendly and chatty and do nothing until they have had a mug of tea! Lovely, lovely people. They arrived as agreed at 9.30am and started climbing ladders and stuff to measure up the windows at the back of the house. All the front one’s they did a few weeks ago, so having the back one’s done will see us right for many a year! They are planning to come and fit them mid-March, which will be great.
As soon as they had gone, we headed into town and did some wandering around the shops. Hubby bought a couple more paint brushes (for oil painting, not house painting!), and I bought a pretty striped micro-fleece from Marks & Spencers. It will be nice to take away with us on our little break in March. We then headed for Nero’s and a large latte.
Busy coffee shop - but it was raining!
Lovely coffee, and resisting the cake took all of my will power!
After town, we did the weekly shop in Sainsbury’s and then headed home for a late lunch. I bought some lovely little poppy-seed rolls in Sainsbury’s which we had one of each for lunch. I had mine with a small bit of cheddar and a teaspoon of Branston pickle, hubby had Stilton and piccalilli. It was 2pm by the time we had eaten – a bit late!
This afternoon we have done the housework and smooched around – achieving nothing really! We did not run as it was cold and very wet – horizontal rain – not at all nice. The forecast for tomorrow says it should be sunny, so we can plan a longer plod. Instead, we went straight for food! Dinner was our now customary Thai Red Prawn curry with stir fry vegetables.
Now I need to resist eating anything else until tomorrow. That is going to be a tough one, but my diet downfall recently has been the consumption of sweets (jelly snakes are my favourite!), chocolate (naturally!), cheese biscuits (mini cheddars – mmm!) and peanuts. There have been nights when I have eaten all of them. Not good.
I am re-committing myself to my diet today. I am ditching the soup and bread and butter and going back to my salads, and ditching the sweets, chocolates, biscuits and all the other bad stuff.
This time next week I should be on the road to recovery – fingers crossed!
Have a wonderful Sunday.
