I got up early and have had a productive morning so far. Put washing on, did the washing up from last night's dinner (OH usually does it but was overcome by tiredness last night, having got in at 05.00 am from work yesterday morning and not had much sleep due to being woken up by next door's 3 noisy dogs barking their heads off, grrr!! 8 o'clock on a bloody Sunday morning and they didn't really attempt to shut them up, why are some people so bloody inconsiderate?). I've prepared a big tub of muesli.....oats, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, sultanas, chopped dried apricots, chopped mixed nuts. I was looking at all the supermarket ones yesterday, they all contain stuff I don't really want to eat, like wheat or barley flakes, sugar, or various preservatives and chemicals. So easy to make my own, and just include what I like in it.
I've made a start on sorting out some unwanted stuff for the charity shop.....got a bagful of clothes so far. Just stopped for a coffee and blog browse, then I'm going to turf out the kitchen cupboards and get rid of some unused mugs and other assorted crockery, glasses, pans etc.
Making cauli, broccoli and blue cheese soup for lunch, and the first trayful of mince pies.....husband was dropping big hints earlier about how nice a mince pie would go down with his afternoon cuppa! He's outside washing the car (must be its birthday, hehe) whilst the sun is shining.....rain and winds forecast again for this afternoon.
