This morning I woke bright and early and decided that rather than turn over and drop off to sleep again, I would get up and crack on with some chores that tend to get neglected over the Christmas break.
I hadn't managed to fit in any ironing last week, so caught up with that, did three loads of washing ( still not happy to use the timer programme incase I have a leak) dried two loads, folded and sorted it, baked some cakes I had intended the Teens to do, but realised time was running out so got them made...and all before 7am!!!
I then had a cuppa and some panettone for breakfast, then took Hubby up some brekky and enjoyed a cuppa upstairs with him....just love having leisurely starts to the morning.
Eventually we made it out the door, with half the cakes left at home to take to Grandma in Lincoln tomorrow and the other half to take to Grandma here.
At Grandma's it was an afternoon of chatting and knitting, with a quiz and board game thrown in.
I have mislaid my knitting stitch markers, but coloured paperclips do a great job!
It has been lovely not having to think about food, and I think Grandma is glad the past two days are over.
Whereas she once regularly cooked for a dozen, she only cooks for herself these days, so it must have been daunting to cook for 13, however she did us proud, with a lovely homemade pork terrine, chicken and mushroom casserole and some lovely salads and veg...as well as a home made Christmas pudding both days!!
Cold wise, it hasn't quite taken hold, but hovering if you know what I mean!
Hubby sadly seems slightly worse, even though he is into his third week!
