Feeling better

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).

  1. Glad to hear that health is improving and that your DH rehung the curtain. Bear, too, deserves credit for doing homework and piano practice. Good luck with the meal planning - it never seems to work for me! I've given up!
