It was a good day for getting stuff done today, and the ironing heap has diminished, whilst more washing has been done and hung out in the verandah. The weather here has been rather dull and cold today, and not very inspirational. The EFG and I have been to gymnastics and when I came home, the YFG was making cupcakes in the new oven...
She found the new, clean glass a fascination, and lay on the kitchen floor to watch the cakes rise! Have to admit that I joined her for a few moments, and it was funny to watch the cakes rising, with little bubbles popping out of the tops of them like tiny volcanoes occasionally!
The kitchen isn't finished yet, but it moves forward slowly. We are going to paint the ceiling and what exposed walls there are. Not a lot of walls to paint, but some cobwebs to dislodge first as well. Still work to do!
Tonight the EFG and I have been doing a 20 minute boxing workout from a Davina DVD, and my legs are feeling it from all the squatting for the bobbing and weaving - it is fun, and it is good to do it together, but I do feel the aches afterwards. Hopefully we will see the benefit when we get weighed on Thursday...
The benefit of all this activity today is that I haven't spent a penny of money all day, and indeed have actually acquired £3 from selling boxes of eggs to friends. Hoping for a similar day tomorrow, as I am not going anywhere. Not spending is about making do sometimes, and I have had a rummage in the freezer for tomorrow's supper - we are going to have a turkey drumstick joint from Morrison's which I bought some months ago, but I know that we will all eat several meals from it, which makes it very good value.
A Chance to Feel Smug
