DB and I are the very proud owners of dumbphones. Who would have thought such a word existed. We certainly didn't until we watched the news this morning about new words going into The Oxford English Dictionary.
Back to the phones. Ours are always switched OFF. Yes folks, they do indeed have off buttons!
They are for emergency use only. We top them up probably once or twice a year with £10. We phone each other briefly once every few months to make sure we keep our phone numbers intact (or some such nonsense).
When either of us goes out in the car alone, we take them with us just in case. When we go out together, DB usually remembers to take his, just in case. They are not switched on even then.
We can phone and receive phone calls, likewise with texts but that is as far as they go. Maybe one day, DB will change his so it has a camera on it, just in case.
Anyway, today the sun is shining and the sky is partially blue with the rest turning grey. Washing for the first time in days is actually blowing in the breeze outside.
We started taking our decorations down yesterday and have now finished. Hooray! I do love them but can't wait to get the house back to normal.
I'm still trying to get back into the swing of cooking as all meals over Christmas were mainly pre-cooked. I have beef curry planned for tonight so we are looking forward to that immensely.
Weighed ourselves this morning. The previous Sunday we had both lost a pound, this weigh day was not so good. Up 2lb for me and 4lb for DB. Won't take long to shift though. Any sweets still around will shortly be in the freezer. Two more slices of cake will finish the quarter we kept out. The rest is in the freezer.
Onward and upward!
