Tuesday for me usually follows the same pattern - my weekly order is delivered by Tesco sometime between 8am and 9am. But every now and then I decide to drive to Tesco and have a look what is on offer. It is easy when having a weekly order on line to get into the habit of always having the same things, and I do like to change what we eat so that we get the maximum nutrition from our food.
Tuesday morning is always taken up with meeting friends for coffee and a toasted tea cake (delicious), so that meant that the Tesco run was after lunch. Very few people in the store today; it is a large store on the Garrison at Catterick and it has interesting food in that in caters for all nationalities (there are always ghurkas here for example).
Mundane jobs ended the afternoon - washing out the fridge before putting the fresh food away, packing all the food away into fridge, freezer and cupboard. Then after tea (strawberries and cream) the farmer had his shower and is now sitting at the jig saw I bought him on his birthday.
It is interesting how we approach jig saws - our approaches are so different. I can't put in a single piece without the picture in my hand. He looks entirely at the shape and never bothers with the picture at all.
I am resisting the temptation to switch on the television to find out who has been eliminated from the Tory party leadership contest. I find the whole business far too depressing. Yes, we are a democracy - and I thank God for that. But I personally find the vote to Leave a hard and bitter pill to swallow and am trying to ignore it as much as I can.
