Quick update

The weather was not too bad this morning. Rather dull and with just a tiny hint of rain, but reasonably warm so I walked up the very steep hill to see M and she came out wrapped in her thick coat and put a blanket over her knees so we could do the crossword and zygolex word puzzle together. We didn't chat long because she is 97 and I didn't want her to get chilled, but it was nice to meet face-to-face.

I didn't post the shopping news yesterday, but it is becoming routine now. I went first to the Eurospar for eggs, Fruit & Fibre and a couple of their nice little fruit & custard tartlets, also a birthday card for our grandson. I then went on to the Co-op where I did the rest of the shopping. The whole thing took about two hours by the time I'd visited both shops, returned home and stashed everything away in the fridge, freezer and cupboard.

Due to the very real threat of No Deal Brexit in the New Year, I have brought in another Really Useful BoxTM so I can enlarge my food stockpile. My new arrangement is much easier to manage the stock rotation and with the extra box I can now have a stock of cereals as well as tins and packets.
