I sorted the remaining kitchen cupboards yesterday, it didn't take long as I'd done the baking cupboard just a few months ago. I only had to throw away a few things - some sachets of yeast, a nearly empty pot of baking powder and an opened pot of xanthan gum that were all out of date....I think I only used the xanthan gum once a couple of years ago when I was trying out some gluten-free baking (not successful). There was also a plastic tub of some unidentified gluten-free flour substitute - at least I think that's what it was, I'd clearly forgotten to write on the tub so have no idea what it was actually. There was also a half empty jar of powdered sweetener, which had gone solid. As I never use it anyway (think I'd bought it for guests who were staying a couple of years ago), that went too. Most of these things were on a high shelf and right at the back of the cupboard, which I can only see and reach by standing on a stool. All done now. Husband didn't feel like continuing with the utility room sort out, I expect he'll do it sooner or later.
Other than that, I sat and did a bit of banking, menu planning for the coming week and a list of jobs to do. We've got a few appointments during the week, so won't be doing loads of jobs. Top of the list is defrosting the big upright freezer - we've been eating quite a bit out of it so it's not stuffed full now. The spare fridge in the utility room is empty and we have a big coolbox, so enough space to put the frozen food whilst the freezer is being defrosted.
Husband will be ringing the surgery this morning to get an appointment to see the GP. I have my first (rescheduled) physio appointment at 11.00, I've not had a phone call - yet - to cancel, so hopefully it's going ahead, although there is a nurses strike on today so fingers crossed. In the next 3 weeks husband has 3 medical appointments (so far!), I have one. Betty has a grooming appointment this week and the vets next week for her annual jab and check up. Husband is taking the car in for some work on Thursday. We have our monthly coffee and cake morning with a friend next week. And after all that it'll be caravan time!
And breathe! Blimey, see what you mean.ReplyDelete
Everything does seem to come at once doesn't it? Still, at least it'll make the time go fast until C day! xxReplyDelete
You have got a lot on and all at once, it's definitely all or nothing. I hope the phone doesn't ring with a cancellation this time. Fingers crossed.ReplyDelete
Busy, busy indeed. Bet you can't wait to get to that lovely caravan. Will most of the other owners try to get back as soon as it opens? I hope you get sunshine for your time there. xReplyDelete
Our lives yoyo from nothing, to rushing about fitting everything in. I'm a list maker, and love to have a plan, it makes my day if I know exactly what needs doing and when.ReplyDelete
What a busy upcoming time you have. Just think though caravan time will be here for you very soon.ReplyDelete
Well done on those cupboards. I hope you saw the physio today.ReplyDelete
A busy time. I haven't read the more recent posts yet so am hoping that the physio happened OK. Well done with the cupboard clearing. xxReplyDelete
