Find I get headachy if I eat a lot of eggs, nuts tend to keep me on the loo more often. We all have issues!
ooh good luck on shopping front ( shops were quite yesterday when we went). We only buy enough food for the Xmas dinner( mind u we have 5 courses lol - worked out at £8:50 a head this yr so not too bad... I think :-/ lol. We cook the meat the night before nd all have hot beef sandwiches Xmas eve when kids in bed nd Gifts all set up...yum.
This morning I’ve Changed beds nd nd set washing away before heading t daughters. Breakfast, dressed nd school run done for lil one then took other l one for walk down woods to collect holly and greenery for Xmas table. Back nd having first cuppa of the day while reading Xmas story t lil one. Life is good:-)
have a goodin whatever ur doing peeps x
Evening all! That’s me done until 2 January 2018, 13 days apparently but who’s counting?!
Chill time now, can start to think about the future and not dwell on the past, what has happened in the last year won’t leave me but I might be able to set it aside now and think about what I can do and not what I can’t.
York tomorrow to pick up last two presents and then a meal with an old friend and my god daughter. Will get the bus tho’, not fighting with the Friday traffic and Mad Friday revellers. Christmas can now begin, and breathe
Yeayyyy we r all ready to actually enjoy:-)
eee my sister in law rang t say she had a Turkey for me!!! Apparently my brother ( who has a small holding) bought 4 turkeys nd has raised them free range for Xmas. Got attached to them nd wanted to keep them as pets but the sister in law put her foot down nd said no. So I now have the one named “gobbledegook” oven ready at mine- bless- nd it’s the blinking size of a house! I already have my meat in.!!! 2 have been donated to charity nd they have kept the other. Brother looks gutted( sorry gobbledygook).
I am also now down t my knuckles from fingers going faster than a hummingbirds wings ordering on line from the Next sale. Got myself a new coat nd jacket nd 4 jumpers ( that in reality I don’t really need but hey merry Christmas t me). Enough clothes nd footwear to kit the lil ones out for a yr lol. Time for alcohol nd wish they hadn’t named the blinking turkey I will b eating:-/ x
Oh I wish I fitted in Next stuff but I’m not shaped right for it ! Not sure what I’m best in at the mo altho I did find a lovely skirt in New Look at half price, go me! My whole outfit cost less than £20 so was chuffed with that. The positive for today is that I’m starting to be able to wear ‘proper’ bras again!
I remember having Sunday lunch with one of my friends at the time, she lived on a small farmstead, and she just said very casually, who are we eating today then mum? Turned out is was a cow that I remembered being a very young calf and feeding with a bottle, this was a while later obviously. Kind of didn’t eat much more after that. She was called Daisy, the cow that was!
Guess that's the reality of it. We don't think of it when we buy meat from shops or butchers. I bought a small turkey crown as only 3 people eating it. Poor turkeys.
Glad you both got some bargains. I love bargains!!
Baking day on sat. Oh and cleaning the paint I got all over the bathroom tiles (oops)! Never again will I attempt decorating again. I'll stick to decorating my xmas cookies!
Got a nice chocolate liqueur and toffee vodka. One glass and I'll be asleep!
I only ever buy a turkey breast. There is a maximum of 4 that will eat it, if foster son is here I do a quorn roast for him as he is full on veggie. There is enough other stuff that goes with it, stuffing, pigs in blankets and mountains of veg, so don’t need masses of meat. Not sure if I’m doing pate or soup for starter, but both are already in the house. None of us like Christmas pud so this year it will be a sticky toffee pudding, sometimes I do an apple crumble but with what is almost a caramel sauce. Sounds disgusting but it’s a bit yum.
Take it steady tomorrow Jbains, otherwise you’ll be too knackered when your son gets home on Saturday to enjoy the reunion. A bit of muck isn’t going to hurt any one and it’s you he’s comimg to see not a pristine house. Now drink your alcohol like a good gurl!
Eeee I know bit off putting like. Reckon will need t freeze some of the meat I already had bought. Don’t normally have turkey xmas day but hey ho ( don’t get me wrong- lovely gesture nd 1 has gone t a children’s home nd another t a group who make Xmas dinner for the homeless). I’m so surprised at brother cos on his small holding he just keeps rare breeds nd llamas.... just t look at lol. Put money on it this won’t happen again bless.
I so love a bargain. I saw the coat when they first got it in but was £80 nd thought sheesh- not paying that.... happy t pay £30 tho lol. H&M’s the shop I struggle most with for fitting - I’m either a 6 or a 22 when buying there lol. Now ignore sizes nd just keep trying till it fits whatever size :-)))
ive been t Calgary jbains ( just on hol tho:-) my daughters friend now lives in Edmonton they too have snow nd it’s -9 there today. I’m still gonna grumble when it’s cold tho ha ha. X
Sound lush rileyroo. I love Xmas pud but it’s too heavy after rest of meal so we have trifle.
Jbains u decorate like me then;-) when finish takes nearly as long to take paint off where it shouldn’t b like floor nd somehow it like I used me hands nd not a brush cos I’m covered too lol. Bet u all can’t wait t see ya family - what it’s really all about x
