Breakfast: Wholemeal toast with marmalade
Lunch: Baked potato with cheese, cherry tomatoes
There was a portion of beef stew in the freezer for G so he had that with the veg but I just fancied a plate of steamed veg and gravy served in a pasta bowl. Sprouts and sweetcorn added 2 points to the challenge 👍
Snack: iced ring donut (cue guilty look 😉 )
That takes the total to 17.25, still some way short of the 30 required 👀
Today I am thankful for:
DD's visit and a lovely catch-up chat yesterday
A warm home on a chilly day
Today is the last day before the price increases, when the energy cap changes to Energy Price Guarantee. I will be reading the gas & electricity meters later today. Even though we have a smart meter, I will read and photograph the readings in case of a problem later. The energy provider has asked me to increase the DD by £38 which is probably about right but I will wait a wee while to see how the Government £66 grant will be paid. If it goes into the energy account it should cover the increase in costs.
Do you know how yours will be paid in the UK?
It's really chilly this morning so we plan to make some sandwiches and pay a visit to the local plant nursery where we can buy the lawn dressing and grease band which we need for our apple trees at the allotment. Some exercise and fresh air will do us good 👍
Thanks so much for popping in. Have a lovely day and stay safe x
