Lazy (ish) Days
I can get used to this being off on Friday’s – it’s a perfect way to start the weekend J I had planned to blitz the house to free up the weekend. I usually spend all day Saturdays deep cleaning the house from top to bottom (obviously in case the Queen pops in for a brew), friends, family and hubby all think I’m mad, as its just the two of us with a non shedding dog and they always protest it really can’t need it every week! As the Queen hasn’t RSVP’d this weekend I decided to give it a miss (I cleaned the bathroom and kitchen and did a quick whip round with the hoover but that’s been it). I instead ventured out to Tesco’s mainly because I had a £6 voucher which needed spending and I decided to stock up with a big shop to see us through April (with the exception of fresh fruit, veg, milk and bread I am done J) at a cost of £57 – not bad. I say that now probably with mis-placed confidence, but I will do my best not to stray.
I spent the afternoon baking, I’ve made a lemon cake and a tray of flapjacks. Tonights tea is veggie curry (batch cooking from the freezer) with naan bread and as it is Friday night I decided to make some homemade onion bharjis (for the first time may I add). I used a Nigel Slater recipe which can be found here. I’ll let hubby be the judge if they are any good.
As its such a fabulous afternoon/evening hubby has texted me and persuaded me to go for a walk (to the pub and back ;), with the exception of my birthday lunch its been 2 months since we went to the pub for a pint, so whilst unplanned and not very frugal I'm really looking forward to it - a couple of pints and then a saunter back home in the sunshine for tea.
We are promised a scorching weekend – enjoy J
