Bugger I missed it! Further down this post I write about how long I’ve been blogging! Well turns out it’s ten years AND A DAY!
Here is a screenshot of my very first post! Turns out some things never change HAHAHA! Point still available!!
My last loaves of 2020
( hangs on the toaster wall )
Well tier 4 is really not much different for me than all of the others. NewYear’s Day tea was a delicious ham joint, served with the last of the carrots and parsnips, with cabbage and peas. Delicious. I’ve shopping coming today - normal stuff really except we bought Mr23 a curry guys book and he requested 7 onions amongst other things to make a giant batch of basic curry sauce!
Thank goodness we had a cheeky takeaway last night so I’ve plenty of Tupperware tubs for the freezer!!!
Although we do the thing where it’s frozen in a reusable plastic bag in a box that can then be removed and stacked nicely. I’m not one for resolution making at all but I am going to vow to TRY to be better at freezer management!
Return to school is full of controversy and angst and union letters and discord. Fortunately Monday was always a planned inset day and I’ve no doubt in my mind I’ll be at work Tuesday no matter what wether it’s open as normal or in the rota for key worker and vulnerable children. I know three of my colleagues won’t be at work because they have Covid or are track n traced to stay home.
Well it’s Sunday, my tree is still up but the rest will started to be dismantled today once the HG retrieves the storage boxes from the loft for me. I’ve decided I’m keeping the battery operated lights down and in my vases etc because I likes them and there is still battery life to use. It will make me sad to see it all down - but that’s what makes it special- if I did keep it all year like I keep threatening - it would lose it’s appeal! I’ve also announced the retirement of my glorious Purple robed Santa Claus Tree topper - because my tree is in the window, the back of his robes have faded to a pinky colour! So I will be on the lookout next year for something glorious to put there instead! No angels or fairy’s. It’ll be a spike probably like my Mum had - that’s what I’ll be aiming for.
It snowed yesterday but has been cold for days, the heating has been on low constantly and the boiler is that old I’m scared to turn it off!!! I’m grateful for the overpayments meaning the £300 credit built up will hopefully have covered this festive period! Temperatures are set to rise slightly next week so it will go back on timed.
January means it’s time to do the HG books before the 31st. Something that I always complain about! It also means that in less than 6 months I will be 50! Gulp. That also means I have been blogging for 10 years! I need to go find my first post to see the exact date. Some of my readers have been here from the start and are true real life friends. Others are true real life friends picked up along the way! I truly love you all! Maybe I’ll do a giveaway or something to mark the occasion.
Involve a walk for Bluebell
