Thank you for all the comments (and Gemma's Person, bless you!)
Slightly more interesting things to talk about today! 😁
This morning there was an earwig in the bath - not for the first time. I always wonder where they come from and how they get in there....well, I know they can climb, of course, so that's self explanatory I guess. But their usual habitat is in the garden hiding in a flower head isn't it, so what's so irresistible about my bathroom? Years ago when we were children, we used to get loads of silverfish - I have no idea of their real name, but they were tiny little silver, fish-shaped insects, hence why they were called that I suppose. They would all be on the fire hearth in the living room first thing in the morning and would scatter madly when anyone came into the room. We sometimes get the odd one or two of those in the bathroom too, along with moths, we seem to get plenty of them. At least it was an earwig and not an 8-legged thing! Any beasties get washed down the plughole, I'm not sharing my shower with anything!
I've written the new menu plan, incorporating lots of protein (meat for husband, fish or cheese or eggy things for me) and mostly non-carby veggies. Saturday evenings we have something takeaway-ish out of the freezer, so I don't have to cook - usually something like a pizza or Southern fried chicken strips or fish in batter (if we didn't have that on Friday), all usually with chips, or a curry with rice. Yesterday we had the Southern fried chicken, but with salad instead of chips. Along with the lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber, I made a Russian salad. Somebody on a blog mentioned Russian salad the other day, so sorry but I can't remember who. It's something we used to have when we were kids at home, loved it but I don't think I've had it since.....cubed potatoes, carrots and peas in a mustard mayo dressing. Ok, I know they're carby veggies, but better than chips and we didn't have mounds of it, just a tablespoonful each. It made a nice change.
Today for Sunday lunch (actually, it's dinner, we'll be having it later on) husband is having belly pork, I'll be having the last piece of my homemade nut roast. I shall be doing roast potatoes - a Sunday roast requires them doesn't it?! We'll also have cauliflower cheese, tenderstem broccoli, peas and sprouts. No stuffing or Yorkies though, to cut back the carbs.
Tomorrow morning husband has the dentist (just a check up), I'll get him to drop me off at the supermarket so I can stock up on more fresh veggies. I've run out of fresh salmon and canned tuna, so will get more of those. Tuesday I have my physio....the exercises seem to be doing some good, my hip is noticeably less painful and stiff, most of the time, although it still lets me know about it when I've been on my feet for a long time or done a fair bit of walking. And then Wednesday is Caravan Day! 😁👍😍
