Monday Mutterings!!!

Well I don't know what has been the matter with me this weekend but far from knuckling down and getting loads of jobs done I have been lolling about feeling as weak as a kitten. I've had wobbly legs, achey arms and shoulders, headaches and slight nausea. It's been horrible.

Anyway whatever it was it has gone this morning thank goodness but that means I now have a backlog of jobs to get done today.
First on the list will be sorting out the freezers. I like to keep all the meat in the outdoor one and the inside one is for veg, ice cream and stuff like that. I need to make a list of what we have and see if I need to stock up on anything. I also need to do battle with the spiders and their mess up the side of the indoor freezer. I only did it a couple of weeks ago and already it looks like there is a fur coat stuffed up the side of it.

Next on the list will be outside cleaning.....sweeping and tidying up the yard and cleaning all the windows and frames to get rid of the dust and debris left by the workmen.

Tea will just be a simple salad with some fish and crusty rolls so before I need to serve that up I may get a couple of hours to sort out my fabric which I haven't done yet.

I need to get out of the house this evening so DD will take me into town. I have a list of cleaning products I need to stock up on so I will be hitting B&M and Poundland for those.

Season three of Wentworth has arrived so for relaxation tonight DD and I will be starting again at season one. It's ages since we watched it so need to remind ourselves of what went on.............and that will be my day today.
What are you all up to?

Thanks for popping by today.


  1. Glad you are feeling better!
    The best cleaning product I have bought recently was in a local shop which sells everything but the kitchen sink. I found a spray of white vinegar and while it doesn't smell like a French perfume, it cleans any grease off anything in seconds, so is great for kitchen surfaces, especially the glass doors to our double oven. And it was dirt cheap, too (can't remember how much, but certainly cheap.) I don't use many cleaning products, just some Cif for the bathroom, bleach now and again (I use bleach sparingly), and a wax polish very occasionally for some antique furniture (for which silicone polish is the kiss of death, not good for it at all.) Most things can be cleaned with a damp cloth or soap and water. Elbow grease is still (usually) the best cleaner and it's exercise, too.
    For an easy tea you can't beat fish and a side salad, can you? I love fish cakes, a side salad and some dipping sweet chilli sauce.

  2. Hi Margaret
    I love the white vinegar spray ( I get mine from Poundland) and I also buy neat white vinegar along with bicarb for cleaning out the sink plug holes when they need refreshing a bit. Also bicarb mixed with the vinegar is a fabulous oven cleaner. You have to leave it on a while but it really does a good job.
    The fish and salad was delicious-x-

  3. Sounds like you have had a bit of a bug, take it easy you dont want to relapse,

  4. After a glorious weekend with family I don't know if I am just tired or of I have some sort of virus. I have a terrible headache and feel generally achy all over.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
