Where does time go? Already April, it doesn't seem two minutes since we were celebrating New Year. I have been a bad blogger too. Not posted for a week. All I can say is life just got in the way of blogging.
Been kept busy with decorating, gardening, planting seeds and working. Sunday I took the cooked and prepared oxtail I told you all about last week, out of the freezer. I sauteed some mushrooms to add to it and managed to have enough filling to make a suet pudding. Had problems with it sticking to the basin and it looked a bit of a mess to take a picture to show you. Perhaps it might help if I grease the basin next time. Silly me. The verdict was, Hubby really enjoyed it, the girls were not keen. Think with the girls it was more a case of not liking the thought of eating a tail! Ah well, not everything I make is going to be a hit with them. So this weeks menu plan is based around the meat I have already in the freezer so my shop today was not a big shop. I only need to buy a large chicken, veg and cream later in the week for Easter Sunday.
Daughter No3 had an appointment with the orthodontist today. It was the first visit to see if she can have braces on the NHS. Good news is she can but, she's now on a waiting list to start the treatment. The waiting list is 9 - 12 months! We could have treatment quicker if we went private. No thanks, we'll wait. We've paid NI all our working lives and I want to get something back for paying into it all these years. We also had to travel 22 miles to the orthodontist in York because he is the nearest one to us. Our nearest town does not have one. So I was not pleased at having to used 44 miles of fuel when there's all this uncertainty over fuel shortages. I did drop in to Aldi on the way home as we were passing and did not want to waste fuel going tomorrow.
Anyway, enough moaning and to bed I must go.
Night all x
