We are busy...

Had a lovely Mother's Day weekend with DS. DDiL and Grand Dogs stayed at home as they were busy on horse duties.

All the kitchen cupboard doors, permet and cornice have been changed - see below. We decided after doing that job (which took 3 weeks), that they didn't go with the current paint. So this morning we prepared the kitchen for painting, to change the colour from blue grey:

To calico - not finished yet hence no final pictures. We have also visited a garden centre to get the final bag of cobbles to finish a job in the garden.

A new to me

Gluten Free range that I came across in Lidl this morning:
They were £1.99 each (less 49p at the till). I think they are probably designed for one person but we bought one each of the above to try them out. They are meant to be cooked in the bag, in a microwave, but we did it in a pan so we could smell and view the contents before cooking. You can view their products here.

Before opening, I thought they were just a sauce but do in fact, contain a small amount of meat as described on each picture/label.

We had the Kerala Chicken curry with chips and peas for our tea, plus some extra chicken to eek it out for the two of us:

If you like very mild curry this is for you. Needed more heat for us but all in all, not too bad but we really needed a bag each.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

It looks like...

That for the British tennis players, Miami is proving as tough as Indian Wells! Andy out injured, Bedane retired injured, Heather out, Dan out, followed by Kyle. Blimey.

Just Johanna and Jamie to go today, I hope they have better look. Normal conversation today, as the BBC is going overboard again, presenting what has happened, practically second by second. There is only so much you can say.
