Back To Grey!!!

It's very grey here this morning and really cold so I am glad that all of my jobs are inside today.
Yesterday was wet and cold so we put the heating on and the house got lovely and warm.....just as the sun came out just after tea and we had to throw the windows open as then it was too warm.

My wimpy old shoulders are complaining very loudly this morning so I have had to start the day off on painkillers to try and shut them up. They've been pretty quiet for a good while but all the stretching and lifting while I have been sorting the house out has set them off again....blummin things.

Not a lot more to do now to have the house party ready and I need to spend some time this afternoon making a shopping list so that I can pick up anything needed when I go shopping tonight. The only thing I won't be able to get is the tiny dinner rolls we always have....DD will have to be in the queue at the bakers early in the morning to get those and I will have to freeze them until Sunday.
It's not going to be a huge extravagant spread....just a simple afternoon tea and a birthday cake which DDIL is making for me......and of course a trifle for Ruby which she is going to help me to make.

I am so cold I think I am going to have to have a hot drink before I go and tackle the mess Andy has made in the kitchen. He finished work for a week this morning so had to have his cooked breakfast before he went to bed.....trouble is he doesn't clean up after himself so I have to do it before I can get on with anything else. Judging by the load of pots it looks like he fed an army too....lol.

Have a lovely day.

  3. Dear Sheila:

    Sorry to hear that you are in pain with your wimpy old shoulders.

    Isn't it lovely to be able to simply turn the heat on when you feel the need.

    Good luck with your shopping tonight. Expect it will be heaving. I went early this morning and many other people had the same idea. I'll still have to nip back Saturday morning for fresh strawberries, etc.

    It is a lovely sunny day here, no jacket needed. Hope it warms up soon for you.

    Take care.

    1. Hi Sandy
      Pain is on it's way out now thank goodness.
      Shopping wasn't too bad. Supermarkets weren't over busy but the roads were mad with traffic even at just after 7pm.
      Cold again here....I hope you still have the sunshine.
      Hugs-x-

  4. Back to grey here again today. I'm trying to finish up the cupboards above the stairs. I've got a bunch of stuff to throw away and some to donate. I think most of what is left in the cupboards now is daughter's dolls. My MIL is a doll collector and bought a bunch for daughter - some still in packages and 'special'. Daughter wants me to hang onto them. sigh. Good luck with the shopping!
