Warming food and knitting also book destash
We had the first bit of sunshine for a week today and it was lovely. Mr Mog and I went up to the promenade for a walk and a check out fo the beach. Great views across to the Cumberland hills, or Cumbrian as they are now known:))
He was very depressed all day, still is poor lamb. Very quiet and withdrawn. He got the letter about the postponed treatments today. The next scan will be 12th February and provisionally the radiotherapy starts 26th Feb. A full month later than we had hoped. No wonder he is depressed.
We had a lovely tea tonight, comfort food. Made yesterday because it always tastes better second day
Yesterday I browned some shin beef in oil, added garlic(lots) leeks, onions, carrots, celery and barley. To that I added tin of flagolet beans and a tin of chopped tomatoes. Added beef stock and some black pepper and a shot of lime juice. Brought slowly to the boil then turned down low and simmered for around 3 hours.
This evening warmed it slowly and ate it with mashed potatoes, yummy:))
I've been doing knitting that isn't socks:))
Here you see a very big earflap hat in mountain colors bearfoot I think? It is currently in the washing machine felting so hopefully pictures tomorrow.
I've also cast on for another Calorimetry for me in colinette mohair Florentina colourway I think?
I had my hair cut yesterday at the local college and my neck is cool:) It is quite short now as the long hair was getting me down. When it is long it just hangs there unless you tie it back so I decided a trimwas in order. Bonus is that my hair curls when it is shorter and scrunches dry which is easier with the RA as I can't hold my arm up to use hairdryer.
I love the local hairdressing college as you get a great hairstyle and for a cut and blow dry its just £5.50:))
