Weekend

My goodness, it's cold. And has been since about Friday, I think. The heating hasn't kicked in properly at work today, and as there's no work to do either, I'm just a tad chilly. *blows on fingers*

Yesterday I had intended to tidy up in preparation for putting the tree up next weekend, but I was simply too tired and cold to do so. We put the heating on at 11.00 and also the fire in the living room (which is just never warm at this time of year), and I spent the majority of the day watching television on the sofa until 7.30, when I went to do tea.

We had roast turkey breast roll, which I'd covered with a honey and mustard marinade (of sorts), with roast potatoes, carrots and leeks, and stuffed mushrooms to use up some bits from the fridge (I used chopped tomatoes, garlic and herbs, plus the chopped mushroom cores, topped with cheese). Surprisingly nice. :) The remainder of the turkey has become lunch today, also, which worked out quite well.

Tonight I must clean the kitchen floor because I managed to spill oil on it last night when getting the tray out of the oven.

Oh yes, on Thursday we went to see Drew in his latest am-dram play, A Christmas Twist, which was quite enjoyable. I was incredibly tired and cranky by the time we left, though...

I am still skint. Thankfully I get paid again in three weeks rather than four, thanks to the early Christmas payday. Not sure it'll help, though; we get paid early again in January and then have to suffer in February when it all goes back to normal. Bah.

Over and out.
