It has certainly turned chilly the last couple of days. Snow is forecast over the weekend and as much as I love the 'picture postcard' image of snow the reality is somewhat different!

Grocery shopping was done this morning so if we do get snow at least we don't have to venture out for bread and milk. We normally shop at Asda as we have a small store about 10 mins walk away but I wanted to try Lidl as they had offers on their fruit and veg today.

I managed to get 5kg of onions for £1.99 and a box of tangerines for £2.59 so I am a happy bunny this afternoon. The onions will keep us going for quite a while and if they start to turn I will chop and freeze them.

Tangerines I love, so they won't last long!

This afternoon has been spent working on some bootie orders which are now ready for posting out on Monday morning. I now feel like knitting socks so I will cast on a babies pair later to feed my 'sock addiction'

Sweet and Sour Chicken is what I am planning on cooking for tea and after our evening stroll hubby and I are planning on either a night of Scrabble or a movie. We have a couple of DVD's from Christmas which we have yet to watch.

Happy times x
