We went food shopping this morning and to fill the car fuel tank with petrol. I decided to get ingredients to make bacon, leek and potato soup and some beef to make a large pan of stew. Both those are good winter warming meals.
Food bank received 2 tins peach slices, 2 x 1 litre long life milk, 2 tins of rice pudding and 2 tins of chicken and vegetable soup. I shall try and give more next week.
The bedroom blinds and curtains will be closed after typing this to help keep any heat inside the room. Our heating is currently being used in 10 minute blasts once every hour or so. It keeps the house warm enough. The log burner is laid ready to use and it too will shortly be lit.
I am already changed. Pyjama bottoms, nightie, jumper and body warmer. I find it is my legs that get the coldest when sitting down and every night for weeks, I have used my crochet blanket to keep them warm. The bed as well as the winter duvet, has had an extra eiderdown added. Should be really snug now.
I believe after Monday, the weather will get slightly warmer but still be on the chilly side.
