Murky Monday

I put laundry in the washer, by the time the washer had finished it was grey and pouring with rain.......hey ho, it was not supposed to rain until after lunch. Will see if it clears up.

Monday clean done, I steam cleaned the wet room and the floor, also gave the marks on the sitting room carpet a bit of a blast, does not seem to have done much good. 

Had another chap come to looks at the shed job, not impressed, a bit of a fly by night, wants to put concrete down, something we were warned against as the soil is heavy clay. Will see what his quote comes in at. We have someone else coming in later this afternoon.

DB picked a few more strawberries, enough for supper tonight, we need sun to ripen the rest.

Doing a bit of financial forecasting, we will have replaced the cost of moving here by the beginning of September. Good news, its only taken us two years. Mind you I have really concentrated since Christmas. I need to check and see how much savings we can have before it affects our benefits!! We have a visit to the council toorrow, it appears they have lost info we sent them in January!! I have proof they had it, we still have the receipt!!

Supper tonight, egg, chips and beans..........


  1. We woke up to horizontal rain so cancelled all plans to pot on tomatoes, I would have been like a drowned rat by the time I got to the greenhouse. Sewing instead, a lined dress almost finished and all from stash. That is one of my favourite dinners, tonight we are having Lamb Something, leftover roast lamb with diced onion, celery and peppers, some minced fresh ginger and some smokey sauce all in the slow cooker, I will cook sweet potatoes in their jackets and there is some salad in the fridge.

  2. Dark and stormy here in Texas this morning, but we are glad for the rain. It's been awfully dry. Heading over to see grandkids this afternoon.

  3. We had rain all morning and it's still drizzling a bit but the intense thunderstorms in the forecast went south and east of us so the worst weather was over the Atlantic when it was parallel with us.

    Have been reading after doing some laundry and loading the dishwasher, so am about to press the pieced borders for the St. Patrick's wall quilt and then add more strips to each of the 4 lengths already pieced.
