There was a very heavy frost overnight, next doors roof looked as if it had snow on it!! DB said it was -9 at one point according to his weather station.
We were late up, porridge and toast for breakfast with a large pot of coffee......I made a pot of leek and potato soup for lunch enough left for tomorrow, we finished off the garlic bread from last night.
DB went for his siesta after lunch; I did the prep for supper pork chops roast spuds, carrots and brussels, dessert, banana and ice cream for DB, plain banana for me.
I am spending the afternoon on the settee reading, tomorrow life returns to normal after the last 2 weeks. DB has his INR test on Wednesday, I am going to see if I can get transport to and from the hospital when I go for my op. I am not happy with DB driving that distance on his own.
The budget has been set for the next 12 months. We have had one notification through for DB's Scottish Widows pension, we should hear about the DWP sometime this month, then we have to wait until April for the Civil Service rises to come through, so I based my budget projections on this years income. We are breaking even.....just. I have had a note from our power suppliers that they are reducing the DD for the gas from £40 to £20 per month. I do not think its enough, however we shall see. They are now holding more than a months payment for the electric so I may well try and get that reduced as well. We have not had the worst of the weather yet; nor have we been in the house for a full 12 months.
I am going to be busy this week, I have a project I want to get sorted, once its finished I will post pictures.
Back to the normal routine tomorrow, perhaps then I will be able to remember what day of the week it is!!!
