I had every intention of going out this morning once K had departed for day care. I was going down to the doctor’s to pick up my prescription for my tablets, then returning back home. However it was raining, and my readers and fellow Spacers will know my feelings about that weather condition! I did keep peering out every half an hour or so to check whether or not it had stopped, but no such luck.
So I busied myself tidying up the flat (K’s bedroom will soon need some drastic treatment as she now has it back to how it was before my last onslaught, in other words piled high with scraps of paper, junk and other assorted mess!) She was in some bother with me first thing this morning, as she had piled her clothes that she intends wearing for tomorrow behind the door, thereby causing me to bang my arm quite hard on it when I was exiting her bedroom.
Its hardly wide enough to swing a cat around in there as it is, without the door only being able to open half way! Of course I was then greeted with the sulky looks, furious pouts and quiet mutterings under her breath., but I resisted the urge to take any notice, and she was soon out the door anyway and on her way to day care.
Just in case, she had asked me what outdoor wear to put on once she spied all the rain coming down. so as it was also still quite cold I suggested that she put on her sheepskin coat and then topped it with her raincoat.
“Well your covered then K” I reasoned, “warm enough for the cold, and dry enough for the rain!” so she did!
I made a turkey casserole for tea, which was nice and warming. It reminded me as I was plonking in all the ingredients into my large casserole dish, how my mother always made a stew on a Monday. Of course in those days this was largely because you made a stew following Sunday to use up any leftover’s from Sundays dinner, and the tendency was to put everything into it but the kitchen sink!
Any meat that was remaining from Sundays joint, any vegetables etc, went into the stew pot. It was waste not want not in those days, and woe betide you if you did not empty your plate at meal times! So yes, Mondays were always stew days! Of course we don’t call it stew now , oh no, its a casserole of course!
Well, that’s all for now fellow bloggers. Oh, and I don’t know what has happened to the formatting of my blogs on Windows Live, but its all sort of changed. Is it at my end now that I am running in Windows 7? Or are big changes afoot on Windows Live? Who knows, who can tell? We shall no doubt find out eventually!
