It's a wonderful change. My cough is easing off. It isn't gone, but it is less and less - and as it has plagued my life since October I am very grateful. It has been a really nasty, convulsive, debilitating time. My leg is having it's moments, but I've been able to do more. Not only that, but the eczema attack I have had this week also seems to be calming down. It was awful a few days ago, I couldn't sit still and I wondered if I was going back to the when I had dressings changed by the nurse. It isn't good but it is a lot better. It's great.
Not only that, but DH kindly rehung the curtain. Bear actually did all his homework and practised the piano. Yesterday I somehow managed to fill a few more bin bags. I am considering my next target.
I think I am going to try meal planning again. I usually fail on an epic scale with this, but it is a good start for healthy food for the family and a good way to check the budget. To do it properly I need to know what I have in. To know what I have got in I need a real sort out. That is not going to happen soon. I can't get into the cupboards easily. But I can start planning a rough shape for the meals.
My plan is to more or less, depending, with a little give or take, is to follow the medieval fasting plan. It was a sin to eat meat on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I am not planning on sticking so strictly to what is considered meat, and I will definitely be using things like eggs and milk, but it will be a lot healthier and a good way to save a few pennies. I am going to aim (no guarantees!) to go for using pulses and veggies rather than meat substitutes. If, and it is a big if, I manage it then I will post the results.
Posting on a Saturday, so I shall start with sweetcorn souffle tonight (fingers crossed).
