Porridge and Pussy Cats

Another busy week in the cold warehouse sending out wetsuits…..yes, people are still buying them and yes, we still have lots left over at Mad Monkey…that’s the day job.  The link doesn’t work so you can find me at http://www.madmonkeysurf.co.uk

For now I am home early, have lit the fire and sitting next to it with Mollie Topshop…one of the cats….listening to the rain hitting the window.  It’s a huge window which has finally been treated….the new blinds came today…excited is an understatement.  I shall be nagging, as indeed I should, for them to be fitted this weekend.  They are orange and funky stripes, hopefully will fit.

I have cut back on eating,  even though eating healthily I had been eating far too much and the scales were showing this.  (As I sit here munching on some pecans!)  Because it is comforting and because I am not my best in the mornings.. it is porridge every day.  Usually with raisins and chia seeds.

During the day snacking on tomatoes and eating leftovers like potatoes and salmon.

Keeping it basic because I have been so busy.

Finally after procrastinating for about 6 months, have suddenly realised that the family will be here for Christmas.  Our bedroom is currently being refurbished so we are in one of the guest rooms.  The other guest room is full of “stuff” along with one of the sheds.  “Stuff” means the things I have put there a while ago, so long ago I can’t remember what is in there.  So, I started sorting and throwing it all on to Ebay, more than happy to sell every bit of it for 99p if it must, just to get the space back.

There are dresses, there are bags, there will be books and there will be jewellery and toys and games and all sorts of weird and wonderful things.  Some of it brand new….like the bags at the moment.

Come take a look at the Pink Cobwebs shop and help me clear my house for the festive season, or I will have to put my Dad in a sleeping bag amongst the chaos that is spare room number two.

I also pulled out all of the boxes of beads and bits and bobs that I have been collecting and brought back to life my old Folksy shop.

At the moment just the Butterfly Bracelet in there but over the weekend I will be bringing you some more.  I toyed with the idea of just throwing it all away, but what a waste that would be….

Come and visit me at the Pink Cobwebs Folksy shop and help me clear my boxes of beads.

I have been making curry again,  used up the last of my Hari Ghotra Curry Kits and accomplished a Goan Chicken Curry.  Kind of flung in a few too many chillies so Christopher was on his own with this one.  He is a hardened Curry Eater and even his nose ran with this one.  But a huge thumbs up as he likes it the spicier the better.

You can purchase your Curry Kit directly from the Hari Ghotra website.  It’s so incredibly easy and enjoyable to make.

I played some chilling yoga music whilst creating and even Timmy Twoshoes became chilled enough to do a little cat yoga!

And now it’s time to take myself off to the kitchen which is in the same room as the chilling out area and the woodburner and do some cooking.  I shall leave you to a throwback Christmas photo from about 4 years ago, myself and Georgia…I am not entirely sure what was going on…feel free to suggest captions.

Hmmmm….might have had a glass of sherry….

Onwards and upwards, happy Friday evening everyone.
