Up early this morning for a quick visit from Ruby as Andy was dropping her at school so that DS and DDIL could attend an early appointment. She was only here for about twenty minutes but that was long enough to make me happy for the day. Sausage and chips has been requested for tea tomorrow which makes a change from tomato soup or chicken pie.
Tea last night......
Mackerel fishcakes with a greek yoghurt based lemon, parsley and cracked black pepper dressing, raw baby spinach and cous cous salad instead of sweet potato wedges. It was very, very nice indeed.
It's really cold today so I'm glad I made the pork and beans yesterday. Andy is going to be out in the cold for a while with DS replacing our fence panels so he'll need something nice and warming.
It's taking me ages to do this post this morning as I keep getting distracted by the birds in the garden.
We put a new birdhouse out at the weekend and judging by the amount of visitors we are getting it is a big hit.
I love watching them.
Once Andy has finished outside I will be off up to the attic bedroom to make a start on tidying up. I'll have to stay downstairs until then as Smudge won't go out and stay out with him but will want to keep going out to check what's going on. I am not leaving the door open for him today....it's just too cold.
So that's me for today..........what are you up to?
Thanks for stopping by.
