It has been bliss! Nowhere I have to go and no one I needed to see, just the FH and I at home till 4pm, when the girls rejoined us......
We've made home-made leek and potato soup, and some vegetable soup too. I've pottered around and done some ironing, worked on making the sitting room habitable again, and even sat and watched most of a film with the YFG tonight. The other end of the sitting room will be tomorrow's job. I have done enough for today! The battery powered lights I ordered for the tree under the stairs have arrived too this morning, so one set is on the tree that they were intended for, and the other set are on the vintage silver tree I showed you yesterday.
"Worked on making the sitting room habitable again" actually took most of the day and involved tidying, dustbusting, cobwebbing, furniture removal and re-arrangement and decorating!
We have watched the end of a Tom Kerridge cooking programme this evening and just caught the part where he was making a spiced orange cake, to serve with Christmas pudding ice cream, so I am off to see if I can google a recipe or one similar - the FH said he would love it!
