Sniff, sniff, sneeze, sniff sniff

Wonderful, not...... yesterday the snivelling seemed to have gone, wrong, by last night I was sitting with a tissue shoved up my nose to stop the drips!! Very elegant.

I went to bed dosed up with vick on my chest, 2 paracetamol and honey, lemon and whisky toddy. Thankfully the cough stuff seems to have reduced the cough, cough from DB so we both slept ALL NIGHT!! wonders will never cease. It was almost 9am before I woke, even then I doubt if I would have woken had it not been for the fact that I needed the loo.

The drip, drip continues........no coughing from DB apart from the occasional clearing of the throat.......

Chiropodist has been so we are fit for another month or two, she comes about every 10 weeks. costs me but at least we both have comfortable feet.

One of DB's favourite suppers tonight gammon, egg, tomato and if he is lucky fried bread. I made a jelly with fruit in yesterday so that will do us for a couple of desserts. Tomorrow is spag bol, so need to cook the mince today.

We have decided to go to Bingham tomorrow, we are both out of reading matter.......I need to do the shopping list. I can go to the bank and draw cash. I am going to split it in half, half for tomorrow the rest for a shop the week before Christmas to get fruit and veg and anything special we want. We are still fairly well stocked with meat in the freezer. I have a couple of parcels of lamb we can have either with roast spuds or salad and I have the small turkey crown which will do several meals either hot or cold.

Its a bright morning, but we did have a very hard frost, its all white, if I did not know better I would think we had a slight fall of snow. One the car has defrosted we will go out and put the cover on the windscreen, then at least we will not have to defrost that in the morning. It will be a slow journey to Bingham there are quite a few twists and turns on the road.

The house is nice and warm, I tripped the heating to be on all day, almost forgot to switch it back last night, it was only when I was about to doze off I remembered. The fire will be lit after lunch so I can burn all the snotty tissues.

I have been fighting the urge to go to the fabric guild in Leicester, I think I am going to have to go. I want baby fabrics to make a quilt for the new baby. There is to be a baby shower.....something else we seem to have imported from the US, in January and I would like to have it finished by then. Trouble buying on the Internet is getting fabrics that coordinate. I want to use blue and yellow for the blocks and a figured cream for the background. The base is a 9 patch made from 5" squares which you them cut apart, add in strips and squares, the block finishes up 20" square, so 4 make a decent baby quilt or play mat.

I have been doing some research on savings accounts, none of them seem to pay a decent rate of interest unless you are prepared to lock a lump sum up for 1 -2 years, further research is needed. It will keep me out of mischief whilst my cold progresses.
