It was a beautiful sunny morning here. I'd forgotten what that big yellow thing in the sky was as it's been a very wet and miserable month here. It was so lovely to see the sun shining on my gin bottle collection 😂
In fact it was so lovely I was able to go the allotment for the first time in 2 months! Unfortunately there was a new padlock on the gate and no one knew the combination. So I came back home and pottered in the back garden, which wasn't sunny as it's North facing. The Winter sun is too low to make it over the roof top! I whacked down the Himalayan bamboo, beautiful but grows wildly. Also chopped at some ivy invading the chicken run.
I've no idea what this is as I definitely didn't plant it but the red berries are pretty!
My son helped me move my blueberry pots back to the front of the house (South facing) so they'd benefit from any future Winter sunny days. My crop was poor this year as I'd moved them. Silly me! I also was happy to see the goji bush is still hanging on with a few tiny green leaves.
After lunch it rained 🙄 so it was time for some batch cooking. Turkey meatballs (baked first) in tomato sauce using half of a 750g pack of mince.
The other half I made a sort of bolognaise sauce with added black beans (leftover from the veggie meatballs.)
Veggie meatballs invented from butter beans, black beans, nutritional yeast, seasoning and crushed up rice cakes. Baked first then added to the tomato sauce I made. DIL said they were lovely 😋
Lazy day yesterday and busy day today. Pretty much how my weekends roll atm. 2 of my teacher besties at work are ill with the virus that's sweeping the school. I've still got a cough, I've actually lost count now how long I've had it. Just 4 more weeks to hang on until Christmas! 🎄
P.S. I've had a verbal offer on the flat, wee bit below the home report value but might just accept it to get it over and done quickly.
