Welcome to February

What a grey day it is too. I have a load of laundry in, hoping it will dry outside, we have no snow or rain forecast for today.

Gammon joint for supper tonight, cooked in the pressure cooker and finished off in the oven with brown sugar and mustard rubbed into the scored fat, will cut enough for tonight and then slice the rest for the freezer. I used some of the liquor to make leek and lentil soup for lunch, enough for tomorrow and a carton to go in the freezer to make soup later.

Nothing at all yesterday re the loo so we are still using the bucket to flush. DB is very cross with the agents, they have always been so helpful in the past. Not having a reserve plumber is a bit short sighted. We wait and see what tomorrow brings.

Laundry dried on the line, just aired it off on the airer in the sitting room.

The gammon was delicious, I did roasties, carrots, cauli and calabrese with mustard sauce.........I could have eaten it all over again.

It turned very cold late afternoon so put the heating back on low, was nice and cosy wrapped in a fleece blanket on the settee with my library book.


  1. We are having what is called a "wintery mix" with sleet, rain and snow plus a tiny bit of hail. Not quite freezing at ground level so a wet slushy mess. I am going to stay in for the rest of the day and stitch wrapped in a fleecy blanket.

  2. Nice and warm here today. Good start to Feb.
