Productive Sunday

So, disappointingly, after the gloriousness of the snow and sunshine of yesterday, today was altogether a greyer day. Still, that was probably a good thing as it made doing jobs a bit easier to bear. Emma headed off early to work, and then, after a leisurely breakfast with the Sunday paper I headed out into the garden to clean out and defrost the bunnies and the chickens. After that I headed into Bicester to buy our Valentine’s Day meal from M&S – their £20 meal deal which looks scrummy-yummy! Emma had taken Ronnie into work with her this morning so picked him up when I went home.

After a spot of lunch, I then set about cleaning the house together with doing a spot of cleaning up of Emma’s laptop (my Mum’s old one) to make it faster. After all of that and a bit of washing, there was just time to get the the lamb hot pot in the oven ready for when Emma got back from work.

So, a busy if productive Sunday…

Grannie, aged 25

Driving home from Uncle Alan aunt Auntie Caroline’s this afternoon along the M40, I came through the hill above Princes Risborough, just at the right moment. The sun was setting, and spread out before me was the whole of Oxfordshire bathed in sunset – water colour shades of green, and mave and blue and orange – beautiful…

A Sunday in Oxford

Have just been for a leisurely wander round Oxford – and even though I had my camera with me I didn’t take any photos. It seemed a bit hot for taking photos – is that possible? Thought about buying a few things but didn’t (good me). Bought something else for someone else (they’ll probably say bad me, but hey…! *grins*) Never mind, they deserve it, and so she better watch her letterbox carefully! (does that sound a bit too much like a threat? I hope not…)

Gonna go and sit in the garden now with a spot of late lunch (if I can find some shade)…
