What a day!
Yesterday passed in a blur, what was meant to be a day of gentle housework, some pottering about & some knitting soon turned chaotic.
My L&M received a phone call about 11:30 from an old school friend. He & his girlfriend would be coming over for a light lunch about 1ish. I had a scrummage in the fridge and came up with a menu. I went to the local bakers to buy a nice loaf, my L&M picked some leeks from the garden. I made a pan of Leek & Potato soup, a bowl of salad & opened the cheese board left over from Christmas.
The visitors arrived, looked at the table & then announced that they only eat healthy food, they aren't eating potatoes so the soup was no good & they aren't eating bread because of their healthy eating kick, but didn't want salad as it's too cold for salad!
I just love it when people lecture me about a healthy diet, complain about what I serve & drink 3 bottles of wine between the 2 of them.
After they left I froze bread, my L&M & I ate the soup, the cheese went back in the fridge & I was intending to make the salad into a soup as well.
I sat down to do some knitting & my phone rang, DD Lizzie needed to go to hospital, she'd been unwell all day but didn't want to miss work so had struggled through. She's made an appointment at the walk in clinic for 6 o'clock, we were 10 minutes late as it took us over an hour to do a 20 minute journey, but we got their eventually. At 9:30 they decided to admit her & I returned to my car, parking cost me £11.94, £6.94 for me & £5 for a mum who'd been at the walk in clinic with us, her toddler had fitted & she'd been scared, rushed him to hospital & only had £2.80 in her purse & couldn't get her car out of the car park!
By the time I arrived home my ankles were the size of footballs, fortunately they had gone down by this morning as I have the DGC today whilst SIL goes to hospital to be with Lizzie.
