"Best laid plans" huh!
No school trip today so we were going to find tiles for the kitchen - well, that was the plan.
After a hectic (for me) day yesterday
[quote]What did you do JJ?[/quote]
Right JJ adjust seat - check
Adjust mirror - check
Adjust seatbelt - check
Adjust wing mirrors ...................................I know there's a knob (no rude jokes please) somewhere. O well, can see Ok if I stretch my neck and - off we go.
This is only the third time I have driven this car so it was nerve racking. Why do they put 2nd & 4th gear right next to each other? Instead of slowing down gently I virtually ground to a halt when negotiating roundabouts!
After putting everything in the slow oven it’s off to the supermarket for a few things.
Right, where is reverse? Slowly up the drive onto the road - I DID IT!! Wow.
An hour later return home and get Mike his lunch and then prepare the veg for the evening and a nice fresh fruit salad.
Take the meat out of the oven - smells fab and make the cauliflower cheese.
Right, time for a break - where's my laptop?
4.30 - back to kitchen to make the pudding, all goes quite smoothly except too much boiling water in the saucepan - burn my fingers & drop the pudding into the pan. Great!
Heat the chicken casserole & put back in the slow oven then cook the veg. So far so good. Family turn up 10 minutes early & starving so skates on – get serving JJ.
Umm, remember that pan of boiling water? Yes, still boiling & still too full. Can I get the pudding basin out? Can I hell! After using 3 tea towels as well as the oven gloves and with very red finger tips I end up draining the water over the sink & praying it doesn’t go in the pudding.
A glass of red appears on the breakfast bar & disappears down my neck pronto.
Eventually dish up and watch the people I love enjoy their dinner. Think I enjoyed mine too but that bottle of Merlot was going down a treat.
So, that was yesterday– nothing much out of the ordinary you might think but for me & my depression the stress was just too much. Consequently, we did not go tile hunting today – I went for a nap at 2p.m.and I’m still in bed!!
Tomorrow??? That just might be the day we get our kitchen tiles ………………….. Or not, as the case might be.
