Today I learned that defrosting mince results in Spag Bol. I'd taken mince out of the freezer early this morning, with the intention of making Shepherd's Pie for tonight's supper. However, when DH saw it on the drainer, he said, "Oh, Spag Bol tonight, fair enough." You see, dear readers, DH makes a far superior … Continue reading LSNED ’09: Day 30
Today I learned that the Council behaved like Scrooge. It seems that the Council refused to lift the parking restrictions around the local area on Boxing Day, requiring vehicles to have the appropriate parking permit or the drivers of the said vehicles being prepared to pay the costly parking fees. And, I presume, it also … Continue reading LSNED ’09: Day 29

I forgot to say that tonight's pizza would be made by The Brainy One. He uses the bread maker to whip up the dough and then adds passata, mixed herbs, freshly sliced tomatoes, peppered salami & mozzarella cheese. They are delicious! Still working on getting The Boy Child to eat one.
Today I learned that it's good to see the end in sight. As tasty as the turkey has been, I'm glad it's nearly finished! However, I'm not complaining because it provided 2 Christmas lunches, Christmas Night sandwiches x2, sandwiches x2 yesterday lunchtime, turkey with chips and gravy last night x2 (it's a Northern thing to … Continue reading LSNED ’09: Day 27
Today I learned that it always takes longer than you think. Yesterday afternoon, DH took DS out for a walk so that I could have an hour in which to play with my new sewing machine. Well, I kid you not, it must have taken me 45 minutes just to thread the thing correctly! I'm … Continue reading LSNED ’09: Day 26
