Hope you all had a good week.
We've still not had much snow in our neck of the woods; just an icing sugar dusting that has now gone. However it's meant to snow again tonight, don't suppose it will be much though.
I have found that during this cold spell I have been more hungry, so I've been making big pots of stew with lots of veg, a little meat (to keep the M the carnivore happy) and bulking it up with lentils and barley or little pasta shells. We have been having this for our lunches instead of sandwiches. I do make soups but they didn't seem to be doing the trick. What do you make foe keeping warm?
Although it's been very cold I have still hung out my washing and believe it or not it has dried(ish). It has taken longer that usual. When I bring it in I finish off in front of our dinning room heater.
We don't have central heating but we do have gas wall heaters in two of our three bedrooms and one in the dinning room, in the living room we have a multi-fuel stove where we can burn either coal or logs. Mostly we use coal. The stove produces a lot of heat so we don't use the bedroom heaters much, although recently we have been putting them on in the evening to warm up the rooms before going to bed. The dining heater is on all day because the room is north facing and it's always cold in the winter.
I'm going to make a hot vimto, if your dropping by I will make you one too.
P.S. Just started to snow, dustings at the moment, must bring in last night washing.
