Get your thermals ready..

Well according to the weather man its going to be cold..i am so grateful our boiler is fixed.
It was quite chilly today..the girls and i popped up to the post office again..different lady this time and wow what a total difference..she made it pleasant to be there..the other woman is so mardy its uncomfortable.
But we did pop in the Co-op and get some doughnuts for a treat..i also bought some Daffodils to brighten up the long days..
The little Daffodils in the tub in the garden have bloomed and they are gorgeous..thank you marie..they are thriving.
I made some Carrot soup..the kitchen smelt good for ages..i froze 2 lots and we had the other for lunch with homemade croutons..
I didn't make any Pancakes at all..no one likes them except me..shame as i love them stuffed with fruit and cream or just plain old lemon juice and sugar..yummy.
We have been pootling along doing our thing this week..nothing exciting apart from all the birthdays.
I had the girls help me empty their wardrobes yesterday afternoon..Ferns looks decimated and Iris's is quite full..we sorted 3 big bundles to sell..i will use the money from the sales to replenish Ferns clothes.
I have sold 3 more items on Ebay..2 have been posted but i won't post the other until its been paid for..yet again i am left waiting..never mind i know times are tough and people have to wait to get paid.Am i soft for giving people the benefit of the doubt?
The chickens are laying regularly now..we have almost a dozen..so i am going to do Boiled eggs and soldiers for lunch tomorrow..o how we love them..i think we could eat them everyday if we had the eggs.
I have not spent a lot of money this week..just fresh stuff and milk.
I have bought my son a present and my mum ..but they were paid for with Payapl so its not exactly out of my bank account.
This is the school work station..the girls have a computer each and the one in the middle is for hubby..he plays his games on that one..thankfully all 3 are never on at the same time.We like to let them have a computer each..they watch documentaries on them..best one was the Shark Watch one..we didn't see the shark coming and wham it was in the cameras face..scary all those teeth..we all screamed and jumped back from the screen..we love Shark Week when its on..also Whale Week.
The girls and i had a bit of a girly moment..we painted our nails..the girls have lovely nails and i want them to look after them..so we had a pamper and then painted our nails..the girls have pale pink and i have just a clear gloss on mine..next time i go to Poundland i will treat us to a new one.
Welcome to my new follower Enid..such a lovely name.
Right i am off..got my big pj's on and thick socks and my fluffy housecoat..nice and toasty.
see you all soon.

  2. There is nothing like cooking a large pot of soup when it's cold outside, and you are toasty warm inside the home. I love pancakes too. I love to make them in a cast-iron pan. I find it imparts a better flavor. Stay warm!

  4. Yes, definitely colder, but I much prefer these cold bright days to the constant howling wind and rain of the last few weeks.

    You're doing really well with all the Ebaying. It is annoying when folk message with lame excuses for not paying up promptly isn't it. I hope the latest one coughs up soon.

    1. Hi Sue..o yes i don't like the wind..i always worry about things flying away..much better to have cold but calm days.
      The Ebaying is going well thankfully..yes apparently this one forgot she had won it..really? She paid after i messaged her..
