Ok, off the soapbox now!
Got lots going on right now, feels like I'm juggling a dozen balls and trying not to drop any of them. Husband has decided he doesn't want to retire at the end of June....he wants to do it in May 👀 Fine, I have no objection, but have asked that he sticks to that or it will keep throwing my plans out if he's changing his mind every 5 minutes. He made it official this week and told everyone at work....he said they all, from management down, keep saying they don't want him to go! That's nice to hear, he's very popular at work. I know he'll miss it, despite being ready to leave. Just as well he's got lots of interests to keep him busy (as have I....got things to keep him busy too!! 😂 ), he's not the type to sit around just watching TV.
I've decided to draw up a list of light lunches and main meals we like...I think it will simplify things, I'll be better able to menu plan and shop, and it'll give me a bit of structure. Once OH has stopped work, meal planning will be easier as I won't have to work around his shifts.
I used my new stand mixer to make bread dough yesterday, it worked well and I'm very pleased with it, it'll be in use regularly from now on.
