My father in law came over today so that we could go for a walk together. We went into town, walked around the castle grounds a bit, and walked over to the temporary lake in the wetlands when we got back – about 2 hours walking in total. The weather was lovely, bright and sunny most of the way and not ear-burningly cold for a change, and it was very nice to have someone to talk to. We also went into a cafe in town for a latte which came with 2 tiny amaretti biscuits – a lovely treat! M doesn’t like to walk and my Mum has a dodgy hip so its rare for me to have company for a walk, so I enjoy it when I can – even when the ground is squelchy and clutches at my boots with every step!
Breakfast: Wild Boar, Cider & Apple sausage sandwich. I decided to pig out and have 2 sausages but found them too filling so I ended up just eating one plus the toasted bread – I’ll add the other one to my lunchtime soup tomorrow, probably.
Lunch: Waitrose Mediterranean tuna sandwich – no photo because it was just an every day bought sandwich.
Dinner: Lasagne with a home-made sort-of-bolognese sauce (half beef mince, half quorn – don’t tell M ;-) ) and home-made pasta sheets ‘because I can’!!! Served with a very few potato wedges and 2 tiny slices of garlic baguette. It was about as authentic a dish as a lead penny, but it was DELICIOUS!!! Once again I ended up with far more pasta than I needed, so I’ll be making a vegetable pasta some day next week.
Snacks: All bran with peaches and a fruit scone with fromage frais and strawberry on it – and I know you know what that looks like!!!
Weight today: A very depressing 10 st 3.2 lbs. Its going up and up and up, what’s happening???? Actually I think it may be TOM. And that’s going to be my explanation until it proves wrong. Arrgghhh
