Today ...

… I :-

* prepared beef stew to cook in the slow oven.
* prepared the veg and potatoes.
* made bread.
* hoovered hall stairs, bedrooms, landing and bathroom.
* made some pages for my little planner. (It's much cheaper than buying them and I can make them to my own requirements.)
* made lunch (salad sandwich).
* did my voluntary stint at the CS.
* read the paper.
* cooked the veg and potatoes.
* ate beef stew, broccoli and mashed potato.
* baked the bread.
* put the left-overs in the fridge to make a pie filling for tomorrow.
* had a bath.
* started writing this post.

In a minute I aim to :-

* upload this post.
* read my favourite blogs.
* crochet.
* watch YT.
* play with my Filofax.
* read.
* watch a little bit of TV.
* go to bed.

The best bit of the day was finding a green velvet dress at the CS and buying it. It fit perfectly and I've always wanted a green velvet dress.

Tea was good too.

So was receiving a parcel in the post.

Pretty great day really.


Not everyone can find a 'best bit' in their day. I'm very lucky.


  1. You've had a super busy day. Sounds like a really good one. I had a good one, in that I went to the allotment for the first time this year and got a lot of work done there, and got some vouchers and a couple of small cheques in the post. I've had worse, put it that way.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful day X I will post the photo again tomorrow. I'm just waiting for my dumplings to fluff then I'll be on with stew too!

  3. A very productive day there, even though I am home all day my days are never dull, there are always things to do, have a great weekend x

  4. Sounds like a pretty nice day all in all. I've also had some second hand success and written a blog post. No cooking though, we went for a belated Chinese New Year dinner and I got lots of cuddles with my baby niece.

  5. A lovely day . Thanks for sharing.. Cheered me up too.

  6. Wow! you had a great day
