We woke up to a sprinkling of snow this morning, and it has been snowing on and off for the rest of the day. But for the last few hours the snow has been more like ‘blizzard’ style (without the strong winds). Now for many snow is a horrid weather that they want to avoid, and understandably so too. In fact I am one of those people to a point. I never go out in the snow, as it is simply too difficult for anyone to push me in a manual wheelchair or too treacherous for electric mobility aids. So I stay in and watch the snow fall, which I admit I love! There is something about snow making everything white that is lovely (see pictures below)
I finally got my second appointment for the hospital (diabetes), and once again they gave me a day I couldn’t make – despite informing them of days. So I rung up and rearranged to a time suited to me. I now have to wait until March, for my December appointment. Am I being picky? No, I just need someone to help me go to the hospital and they were the only days I could get the help.
Over Christmas and new year I gained a few pound in weight. So this week sees us collectively as a household beginning to try to lose weight (note the try bit). Friday we had sea bass and cous cous, which I thoroughly enjoyed – I love sea bass. This time I did it in the oven (as stated) rather than doing the normal grilling. And to be honest while I still thoroughly enjoyed it, the flavour is much better when grilled. On Sunday we lapsed (due to having it in) with a roast chicken dinner, and tonight is the turn of roasted Salmon in a herb sauce (daughter cooking), new potatoes, broccoli and asparagus. As I have rarely had asparagus I have forgotten if I like it or not (only had it once before due to expense anyway). In fact we’re not even sure how to cook it, my daughter thinks she needs to either boil or griddle. Thank goodness for the internet where this sort of information is so freely available.
