Another bright morning, but with quite a breeze, the bath towels went in the washer and are not on the line.

DB has an appointment to measure his eye for his lens, so we will be off to Loughborough this afternoon. There was s bad accident on the road yesterday, hope they have cleared everyting, otherwise its quite a long detour.

Shoved the dyson over the carpet and the kitchen floor, I am always amazed at the amount of muck in the cylinder.

My fingers are starting to itch to sew, so need to decide what I am going to do. I have a packet of tissues, a cover for them will be a quick start.

Liver and sausage for supper tonight, veggies done so I just have to cook it when we get back.

My combi microwave has started playing up for some reason, they are collecting it tomorrow, its still under warranty. I will have to use the remoska or the small top oven whilst its away. 

Our fuel deal finishes next month, have gone onto another 1 year fixed tariff, starts 29th April, they tried to persuade me to have a smart meter which I politely refused, they getting weekly readings from me anyway, so why put a smart meter in? I am quite happy with the bills I am paying and unless we have a week like we had recently, the bill stays within bounds. With the gas, I know we make up any shortfall during the summer. I was cross earlier in the winter when they refunded £100 from the gas bill, we needed it later. I would much rather they refund money at the end of the 12 month period or carry it forward.


  1. I was going to wish you two well with your outing to the eye doctor but you're likely back home already. Had the road been cleared of yesterday's accident debris?

    Am glad your combi oven was still under warranty when it decided to act up!

    We, too, have a bright, breezy day with a distinct chill in the air. Monday's snow is gone except where it stays shaded so the roads are fine.

    I look forward to seeing the fabric you chose to use for the tissue pack case! I'll be continuing my humble machine quilting on Emerald Isle.


  2. I don't want a smart meter either.

    I also have a one year fixed tariff but I don't give meter readings weekly, nowhere near that often - is there a reason why you do them so frequently?


Thank you for leaving your comment. I do read them all. I may choose not to publish them all however.
