Cooler!!!

The air feels deliciously cooler today and I think I can smell rain. There is that kind of feel to the morning which is a blessed relief after the hot and uncomfortable night I have just spent tossing and turning. I feel like a flippin' zombie.
Hopefully if it rains it will chase my headache off and give me a bit more energy.

DD and I got so into Homeland last night that I forgot to take anything out of the freezer for tea tonight so I will be resorting to the simplest of simple meals and we will be having beans on toast. That will work out quite well actually as Ruby will be here and has asked for tomato soup. Two simple meals means I get to spend more time sitting and talking to her.

As there is no cooking to be done I don't have that much to do so I think I might make a start on bringing a few cardmaking supplies down to the dining room.
I have purchased two A4-ish sized drawer sets from B&M and everything will have to fit into those so I think stamps, ink pads and embellishments first and then I will see what room is left for anything else once those are in place.
I'm really looking forward to making a few cards again.

Andy should have been starting a fortnight of annual leave in a couple of weeks and I had a couple of jobs I needed him to get done but now that fortnight is reduced to one week as he is going to work one week of the shutdown so that he can have his two weeks off at Christmas. The firm he works for has always had a two week shutdown at Christmas but this year they decide to change it to one and if anyone still wants the two they have to use accrued holiday.
What's the betting my jobs don't get done at all now?

There is hope at last that the plumber will be starting on the bathroom next week...yay.  I haven't had a proper relaxing bath for five years so lots of time to make up for. I shall be buying some Badedas this weekend in preparation...lol.

Well that's me for today. I'm ready for a coffee first and then I will go and get on with sorting out me stamps and ink pads.

What are you up to today?

  3. You're so good cooking so soup and beans on toast will be very nice. I haven't used our bath for years, only showered. When I worked I was always in a hurry and now older my knees wouldn't let me get up and out!

  4. Love beans on toast! Great easy meal and really yummy too - I always add a bit of cheese to the top. Making me hungry!

    Glad it's cooler down. Talked to Mum a little while ago and she said they had storms last night and the power went out for a little while. No storms here but it's really hot! I'm SO tired of it - hoping it will be a bit cooler when I come over next week.

    1. Ooooh mine have to be either plain or with brown sauce depending on what I fancy.
      Well it's cooler today and very wet. I've not looked at the longer range forecast but I hope you get the weather you want for your visit-x-
