Looking at the comments it would seem we all agree housework is bad for your health!! Thankfully I'm on holiday as I really don't know how I'd cope with being at work all day while I'm like this. I have been able to do stuff but v-e-r-y slowly.
I did a little bit of free shopping with my M&S vouchers. I use their credit card (paid off every month) and accumulate vouchers to spend. I had £12 this quarter so got some store cupboard basics. Mainly 10 tins of beans as the Teenager loves bean burgers so I'm going to make some to freeze. I'm also trying to encourage him to eat more beany/vegetable stews once the cooler weather starts. I also picked up some tofu. I like a certain brand of marinaded tofu but it's rather expensive so will have a go at doing it myself. There's a wee bag of walnuts (OH's favourite) and some stock powder too. All free to me just cos I use their credit card.
It's been a nice sunny week here so I managed some exterior painting. OH did all the sanding down and prepping so I was able to just paint. This is the cladding under my living room windows. It was a nasty brown. So this is the first coat.
It feels like I'm slowly starting to make my mark on this house :-)
