I love my bed! I Couldn't wait to lay down in it last night as after a particularly busy working week my back was hurting. We put the electric blanket on and had an early night and i was looking forward to today as its a rare occurrence that i have the house to myself on a Saturday.
The photo's are a little dark as the cottage has small windows on the front but as i lay in bed i can see out.
This is my view today
Its very overcast and it has been every morning this past week but we haven't had as much rain as forcast.
I got up very lazily at 9.30 am. OH is an early riser so i got tea in bed and then a perfectly boiled egg and soldiers and whilst i caught up on a programme about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, he then brought me a coffee before going off to work.
I decided to put some washing on to hopefully get it outside to dry, then i needed to pop into the village to the Post Office to post a Birthday card and pay in a cheque. I took three bags of old clothes to the clothes bank as i'm still decluttering and also remembered to pay this months tv licence. On the way home i called at a friends to pick up some fresh eggs and stayed for a catchup and more coffee.
They looked so nice i decided to have a cheese omelette for lunch. OH popped home for lunch but he wanted cheese on toast. This afternoon i cleaned the house and found a recipe online from Jack Monroe to make smoked mackerel, lemon and chilli fishcakes. This will fit in with my slimming world diet too so i prepared them in advance and along with chips and beans will make a nice dinner. Here is the recipe
I actually made 6 large fishcakes from these ingredients
Really tasty and the chilli gives them a little kick.
Two for the freezer. Jack costed them at 69p each so a frugal feast indeed.
