A DAY in the LIFE ..........



Some of my lovely blogging friends write posts about their day and have said how they like to hear about other people's days.  I've never written about a typical day in my life, unless I have been somewhere interesting, as I felt like my days are quite ordinary a lot of the time { as it is for most of us } but, thinking about it, I rather like reading about a typical day in your lives so, here goes ..........
This was a couple of days ago ..........




Got up !!!!!



Dressed in these biker boots, leggings, khaki top and black jacket and my 'as always' silver jewellery .....



Got in my mini { John Cooper Works model ! } and drove to the shops .....



There is a family friend of 93 that I visit regularly who hasn't been well ..... she's had that cough that goes on for weeks ! So, I did her shopping, made a tad more complicated as she has to have everything gluten free ! One thing on her shopping list was a large bag of songbird bird seed ..... it weighed 14 kgs ..... I nearly broke my back lugging it from shelf to trolly, trolly to conveyer belt, conveyer belt to trolly, trolly to car, from car to house and through her house !!! I know thats not me in the image but I like to think I look like that 😂 .....



Made prawn salad for her which she  had, accompanied with half a bottle of RosĂ© !!! ..... she then asked if I could feed the birds, feed the fish in the pond, put the food away and take her washing upstairs ! That done, I drove home through lousy weather ..... saw so many trees that had fallen over !



Got home around 7.00 pm and made salmon with quinoa, long grain rice. black rice, edamame beans, black barley and red pepper, tenderstem broccoli and sweet stemmed cauliflower ..... have you had sweet stemmed cauliflower ? It's my favourite veg at the moment. 



I think that some might say that I have slightly overcooked the salmon as they say when you see those white bits its overcooked but, it wasn't ..... so there !!!

Well, there you are ..... nothing very exciting ..... probably the sort of stuff that we all do. Obviously I don't do this everyday ...... I do do other things !!! 

PS: I seem to have lost spellcheck on Blogger ...is it just me ? 

PPS : Just to make it clear, only my 93 year old family friend drank the Rosé ..... I was driving.
