My free dishwasher has been playing up. Flashing intake/outlet error. So spent a few hours stripping it down, trying to clean it out as well as the filter on the inlet. Used you tube and found a extra filter to try and clean. Manage to get it working again but only works until it needs to empty and then it plays up again.
Today is Dixie's got ya day, we have had her for two years today.
Managed a walk along the river as well.

Hubby had a funeral in the afternoon. I was going to go into town and take a walk while he was in but with #stormbrendan then there did not seem much point. Stayed home and made a pot of soup instead. If I am making soup to have as a main meal I will add lentils to it, if for lunches then it is just a selection of vegetables. I had some out of date lentil waves in the cupboard that were a bit soft so while not overly nice to eat straight from the packet they are great to add to a bowl of vegetable soup.
Also spent time on the exercise bike.
Another rubbish day but spent time sorting out the freezers. Only took ten minutes. I have a fridge freezer and an under counter freezer and again they were a disorganised find nothing mess. Not that there is much in either of them. So I sorted one that now has in it cooked fruit, bags or prepared veg and bread, most of this was free from the community shop. They don't always have fruit or veg so I cook and freeze the stuff so I have a supply most of the time. Add some basic fruit from a tin and cook it in with the fresh stuff helps to bulk it out and saves it going off.
The other one now has uncooked main meals as well as the bulk cooked items that are then frozen into portions.
Bob had a hospital appointment for his asthma which has not been well controlled and there was a possibility he may have been kept in so I kept Spud to save DD1 having to worry about her as well. We went for a walk down the fishery to see the birds and feed the swans then played in the park on the way back up. It was rather chilly and very windy but we wrapped up well.
We sat and played games and she was really pleased with herself for doing a jigsaw on her own. She does not usually manage them in the past. Quite nice to only have one to pay attention to.

Today is also baby Roos first birthday. Here is one of the pictures her mum sent us. An extra picture for you this week....

Have a form to fill in to prove I am off ill. Thank goodness for the blog to remind me of what I did and when. Between GP, medication and total lack of being aware of anything due to the pain at the time I would not have remembered much without it.
Took me two hours to do the first six pages and I lost them when I went for a lunch break, luckily enough I had scribbled a lot of it down before typing it onto the form - needs to be filled in in block capitals on the physical form and I cant write in capitals.
Managed to do a mile on the exercise bike and a mile with the dog round the block.
We had a lovely sun set, nothing to line it up with here sadly.
|nice sky, shame about the view|
Went into the town to do my cheap shopping, (for the new people it is a community food shop that collects bread, fruit and veg etc from local supermarkets and they distribute it as well as some in date tins/frozen food/cereals/eggs/and none dairy milk designed for people on a low income which saves food poverty and also saves landfill and believe me makes a massive difference eeking out the money we do have) and a few bits from the supermarket. Walk the dog twice once before the shopping and one after. The sky might be a nice shade of blue but the wind was freezing.
Went down to sit with the three wee ones while DD1 took Bob to gymnastics. Dinky was in a tearful frame of mind as she was tired after a week at school and nothing pleased her.
Finished filling the form in ready for posting tomorrow.
Spent some of my Christmas money treating myself to an abs core fitness trainer. At the moment can only do the leg exercises and the sit ups but at some point will be able to do more. Need to start back on the walking HIIT you tube videos as well.
|only time will tell if it works.|
Played catch up with Silent Witness this week. Finished watching No Offence, it was really good well worth a try if you like CSI type programmes. Started watching The Last Ship, the first 2 episodes were good but once I realised it dragged on for 5 series I could not see where it will be going apart from a vigilante gang style programme so gave up on that.
Now back into White Collar.
Hope you all had a good week.
