Can you imagine the disappointment upon logging into the Virtual Learning Environment last night and finding that message? No traipsing through the cold, snow and ice to spend the day in a cold 100 year old building with dodgy heating. Oh dear :-)
Hello pretty garden
Hello to a new spectator sport - Dog Walking on Ice. I'm not sure that me and Coco will be voted through to the semi finals, one of us is far more enthusiastic than the other, one of us is having trouble keeping up with the routine, and the choreography leads much to be desired.
Hello to having to start up a new Instagram account. I don't know what has happened but I had an odd message to say my account had been secured and I needed to go onto the website to validate the account. But when I went onto it - they were asking for uploading a photo from an official ID, like passport or driving licence. Now I'm pretty sure you don't need to do that just to share photos online so if it's still playing up by this evening I will be deleting that account and starting a new one.
Hello to trying out some new Winter Warmer recipes. On today's lunchtime menu, a new recipe to make chicken soup out of the left overs from the roast we had yesterday. For dinner, a recipe out of my new Nigellissima book. Quick Calabrian lasagne. It includes hard boiled eggs, ham and mozarella cheese instead of cheese sauce. Very different to my normal recipe.
Hello to more baking. I made a Victoria Sandwich cake on Saturday morning. There is less than a quarter left. So after this blog post, I will be heating up the oven to make some rock cakes. Suspect this 'hello' will be leading to 'hello bathroom scales' which will be swiftly followed by 'hello healthy eating diet' and 'hello more exercise'. But not until the cold weather has passed eh?
