Day 89 - Cooking with gas
Sunday, June 21, 2020      4 comments

I have spent the day ensuring all my 'housework' is completely up to date so I can spend the maximum amount of time enjoying daughter's visit.  Including [but not limited to] making sure the microwave is clean, and scrubbing up The Range Cooker.... Read more
Day 88 - Shopping
Saturday, June 20, 2020      4 comments

My internet grocery shop arrived earlier.  You no doubt will be mighty relieved to hear I didn't buy loads of frozen stuff bearing in mind my ongoing game of Freezer Tetris. Just one item in fact.  Apple strudel.  It was one of my daughter's fa... Read more
Day 87 - The Cooker is Closed

Not surprisingly really.  Everything I'd cooked up has been portioned up and frozen.  Except for what I've actually eaten - obvs.  I had an internet... Read more
Day 86 - Fruity
Thursday, June 18, 2020      6 comments

What about the pineapple, the plums, and the mangoes?  Well I peeled and chopped the pineapple and froze the chunks on a tray.  Then put them all in a freezer bag so now I have a bag of natural pineapple chunks ready and waiting for when I want ... Read more
Day 85 - Stuffed
Wednesday, June 17, 2020      5 comments

I never want anything to eat when I wake up.  I simply want tea.  Actually that's not true.  I NEED tea.  And anyone around me needs me to have tea because without my morning cuppa[s], I am evil personified.  Even though I live alone now, I can'... Read more
Day 84 - 50,000 plus
Tuesday, June 16, 2020      6 comments

Every morning as I stumble to the bathroom upon waking, I fumble around putting my miraculously restored 'smart watch' on.  Once I'm downstairs, I note down the steps taken it has recorded.  Well, once I've made my morning cup of tea.  Nothing b... Read more
Day 83 - It was an ackydent Mummy
Monday, June 15, 2020      3 comments

It was an ackydent  I didn't mean to.  And anyway, it wasn't my fault.  No, honest - it was Arthur's fault.  You see the ulcer had eased off and what with the foul weather, I figured I'd wait until the weekend before going over to the retai... Read more
Day 82 - Looks like we got us a winner
Sunday, June 14, 2020      7 comments

Well done 1crazydog.  The film the photo of Brad Pitt came from was indeed, 'Meet Joe Black'.  This photo people - just in case you've forgotten what with my not having posted it for a couple of days.  Like I said, any excuse. ... Read more
Day 81 - Saucy
Saturday, June 13, 2020      6 comments

Yes I'm still juggling trying to use up fresh produce along with playing freezer tetris.  The calculations are quite intricate, let alone deciding what to actually cook.  So I left all that to Data and Cook.  They came up with a relatively minor... Read more
Day 80 - Fish Friday
Friday, June 12, 2020      5 comments

I'm still figuring out how to use up all the fresh produce in the fridge without overloading the freezer.  The rest of the veggie lasagne has been portioned up and frozen.  Which was the point where I was trying to figure out how to use everythi... Read more
Day 79 - Waste not want not
Thursday, June 11, 2020      10 comments

With not having felt all that well the last few days thanks to the ulcer flare up, I haven't been eating much.  As a consequence I looked in my veg and salad drawers today and realised there's a lot of stuff I need to use up before it goes bad. ... Read more
Day 78 - Resurfaced
Wednesday, June 10, 2020      4 comments

I've resurfaced following my meandering medical misadventure.  Time to update.  Firstly, yes, the stream I found for the Andy Murray documentary worked fine.  I can't say it was an 'enjoyable' watch given the subject matter but it was certainly ... Read more
Day 77 - Medical Misadventure
Tuesday, June 09, 2020      7 comments

Having exhorted you all to 'take care' and 'stay well' I was AWOL yesterday due to a medical misadventure of my own.  The last few days I haven't been feeling brilliant and have had pains in my chest.  My shoulders and left arm have been aching ... Read more
76 - Resurfacing
Sunday, June 07, 2020      3 comments

I've been feeling a bit 'meh' today.  Partly I think because it should have been the final of the French Open.  Therefore in my parallel universe, I've spent the afternoon watching Rafa Nadal win his 13th French Open and his 20th Grand Slam titl... Read more
Day 75 - Barbecues
Saturday, June 06, 2020      6 comments

Way, way back at the beginning of February I saw a bbq with a smoker on eBay for £100.  I really, really liked it and realised it was probably an exceptionally good price, but I kind of figured I should wait until the house was 'done' and we cou... Read more
