Filthy Day!!!

Well not a good start to the new year weatherwise.
It's cold and thrashing it down with rain.
DD is out in it as she has had to go into work for a few hours. She'll be back just after 3pm so we'll light the fire shortly and get the house nice and warm for her.

Lunch is cooking....pretty much the same meal as last Sunday but we are having chicken today which I prefer to turkey.
It's rather a big one so I am hoping to get a couple more meals out it too.

I am still organising the dining/sewing room and Andy has just put together a CD unit for me that will take my CD storage upwards which will take up less space than the baskets I have them in at the moment. It's starting to look a lot better already although I still have boxes of stuff that were moved upstairs over Christmas to sort through.

No new year resolutions made here....just hope to get through the next year as healthily and happily as we can.
There is hope that Andy will be able to go back to work next month. He is so ready for it and to be honest I am too.....so fingers crossed for that.

Hope you all have the kind of new year that you wish for yourselves.

  2. Happy New Year Sheila, and to Andy and your family. Hope Andy manages to return to work sooner rather than later, must be frustrating for both of you.

    Just thinking, has Marlowe recovered from her impetigo and did Ruby manage to avoid it?

    Best wishes for 2017. xx

    1. Aww thanks for your good wishes Suzanne.

      We are a little frustrated now with Andy still being at home. He is so bored and I am ready to get the house back to myself not only to be able to get things done but for my sanity....lol.

      Marlowe has recovered from the impetigo thanks to her antibiotics and thanks to very strict hygiene rules by DDIL Ruby managed to avoid catching it so all is good on the Doodle family front thank you.

      Hope you are having a lovely day today.
      Hugs-x-

  3. We have had a share of your weather, I did manage to get my walks in between the downpours. I am making no resolutions, I intend to carry on crafting and having as much fun as possible.
