Silly o'clock again....01.37, bit earlier this time. Oh well, will write a blog post, read the paper online whilst I drink my warm milk, then back upstairs with hopefully a bit longer in bed for the second shift.
We went to Morrisons (supermarket, for those readers not in the UK) about 3/4 hour before it closed, as I was nearly out of eggs and my lactose-free milk. We looked to see if they'd got any good reductions on meat or fish - nope, they had very few reductions and what they had was only pennies off. The shop looked like the aftermath of a panic-buying spree (which I guess it was really!)....rows and rows of empty shelves. Almost no bread, good job we didn't need any - I'd got husband to make 2 loaves at the weekend. However, I did manage to get 2 packs of asparagus for 18p each. Wrong time of year to be buying it, as it's not UK grown obviously, but I love asparagus and am not turning it down at that price. The shop was also empty of customers, apart from perhaps 4 or 5 other people besides us. Hardly any staff either, seemed almost pointless them still being open. Our neighbour friends' daughter had been to work this morning in a Co-op, she said they'd had hardly any customers at all and it wasn't worth them opening up.
Having had 3 roast dinners this week, I want something light for the rest of the week. So tomorrow (well, technically today! But it'll be tomorrow seeing as I'll be going back up to bed soon) we'll have a cheese and asparagus frittata with salad.
The roast beef we had today was cooked perfectly, medium rare and totally delicious. Loads left, will have a beef sandwich for lunch tomorrow but not yet decided what to do with the rest. I'd originally thought of a curry with some of it, but it seems a shame to hide such lovely rare beef in curry sauce. Too tired to think now. In fact I don't think I'll be reading the paper after all, am tired enough to go back to bed now. What's the betting I'll be wide awake though as soon as my head hits the pillow?!
