Yet another good deed as J, who lives about ten doors away from me called with this Cottage Pie for my lunch today - minced beef, onions, carrots and peas with a topping of a mixture of potato and sweet potato and pieces of cheese. I had it for my lunch and it was delicious.
Sitting doing The Times crossword this morning, still in my PJ's at ten thirty (not difficult when you have nowhere to go but a very slovenly habit I am in danger of developing) I heard a familiar sound and realised that my gardener was outside mowing the lawn - I needed other jobs doing, so I opened the door and from a distance asked him to move some pinks I had ordered last Autumn (9 different varieties, all of which have done well over Winter) then dashed and had my shower and dressed so that I was a bit more presentable!
The rest of my day has been spent trying to unblock my shredder which has blocked with bits of paper. Using a knitting needle I have unblocked it all but one place and I just cannot get one piece of paper out. I have emptied it, cleaned up the carpet, oiled it and left it for now and will try again another day. In the meantime my shredder tray fills daily. This is the second time it has happened and yet I am very careful how I use it - any advice anybody?
It hasn't been such a nice day here today - the sun has not put in an appearance, it has been a grey day and for much of the day it was not possible to see East Witton Fell. Typical 'arrival of Easter' weather. Happy Easter everyone - yes life will return to normal eventually and don't forget to go to the door at eight tonight and applaud our wonderful NHS Staff.
