We decided to have a ride up to Bingham, we live almost on the border between Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. We are closer to Bingham than to Melton and they are building an Aldi in Bingham, so it would make sense for us to use that branch rather than Melton, unless we are actually in town for something else.
We were pleasantly surprised at the centre, quite compact but with a good range of shops and a fabulous independent DIY shop, we had a good rootle round in there.
It was cold during the night, I was surprised at the warmth the fire had actually pushed out into the sitting room last night, when I opened the door to the hall when we went to bed it was decidedly cooler in the hall and bedrooms. I guess I will have to sort out the heavier quilt, I think we may need it soon. I must admit the electric blanket has come into use, we put it on 6 when we go for our nightly slosh, by the time we are ready to get into bed its nice and warm and we can turn the blanket off.
Need to sort the supper, cauliflower and broccoli gratin, jacket potatoes and roast tomato's. I am going to make a coconut sponge for dessert. My new hand mixer arrived yesterday, so I can try it out.
No plans for the afternoon apart from prepping the supper.
