Life's Little Pleasures!!!

I woke this morning to the sound of rain battering down on the dormer roof in the attic. My hot water bottle was still warm, I was really comfortable and so I treated my self to a few minutes of a lie in. Sheer bliss and I am now raring to go on the job list.

The pork has been marinating in it's rub all night and that is about to go into the oven to cook slowly. I hope it turns out as nice as the one my son does....although I have used a different rub.
DD is having her first session at the gym tonight. She will be later home so I have decided to just do corn on the cob with the pulled pork rolls and we'll have the sweet potato wedges with something else later in the week.

Christmas is all packed away except for one item which needed bubble wrap so that will get done today. 
There is still some stuff that wants taking back upstairs and my boxes of fabric need to be bought back down to the dining room.
Once that is done I shall just about be back to normal at last.

Andy has two appointments this week which will hopefully give us some news of when he can go back to work.
He does still have a small post op problem which he needs help with but we hope it will be all good news.

Right....he is back from town so I will go and make us both a coffee before we start on anything else.

Hope it's not too wet where you are.


  1. Hope all goes well with Andy's appointments. The pulled pork sounds delicious, I could just eat that.

    1. Thank you we are hoping so too.
      The prok is smelling fantastic...I just hope it tastes as good-x-

  2. Sounds like a gentle way to start the week. Hope the appointments go well. I've got to start getting back into the swing of things after a couple of weeks of upheaval. Taking a while to get going lol

    1. It was really nice Sharon.
      We have our fingers crossed for the appointments and good news.
      It sure does take some getting back into the swing of things. Usually by now I have done a top to bottom pre-spring clean but my routine is shot to pieces with Andy sofa hugging all day long-x-

  3. I think it's cosy laying snug in bed with the rain beating against the windows. Enjoy your tea, sounds lovely xx


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