Today has been gorgeous. Beautiful and bright, and sunny. My new-found Saturday routine was hampered a little by the ePaperboy oversleeping and my Saturday Guardian not being delivered to my Kindle in time for breakfast. After breakfast I went to the butchers whilst Emma cleaned the long-overdue oven door, and then we cycled (the first time in ages) into Bicester to do our veg shopping.

I read the Saturday paper over lunch (the ePaperboy had woken up sufficiently to have delivered it by then), and then we had a lazy afteroon in the lounge with the patio door open, and I read some, before making and baking a Slimming World friendly cake for my mother-in-law tomorrow, and a huge batch of spaghetti bolognaise for tonight’s dinner and midweek for us when Emma’s on the twilight shift.
