I did a ton of jobs yesterday – I was shattered by teatime and had to collapse and watch tv in bed for a bit 😀.
I was in Aldi for 8, and home to start a deep clean of the house. Every room got a good going over, including the windows, skirtings and floors. We don’t have many carpets and the floors are mainly wood. Mr S has just been helping out with a house clearance and one of the things he saved for me was a steam mop. I am quite pleased with it. It cleaned quickly and well and dried much faster than when I use my old mop and bucket. A bonus is that it just used water, so no floor cleaner or chemicals needed.
Mr S has put some strips of plastic on the walls of our freshly decorated room by the back door where the cats love to scratch. I would rather not have them there but they look better than ripped up wallpaper.
They don’t usually scratch by the French doors but to be in the safe side I have out a big plant there. It is a money plant that desperately needed repotting anyway. I used a tester pot of green emulsion on it to tie it in with the green and cream theme. Quite pleased with that!
Our quick easy and frugal vegan tea was mushroom chasseur from A Girl Called Jack with crusty bread. It was delicious and I will definitely make it again. This really is one of my favourite recipe books and I recommend it. I signed up for Jack’s new one, Cooking on a Bootstrap, through Kickstarter, a crowd funding organisation. It was supposed to be published in May but no sign yet. I wish Jack would hurry up as I am hopeful this book will be another winner.
We were so hungry I didn’t think to get a pic of the chasseur!
I am having Sunday lie in as I type this but we have a language student coming at lunchtime so I had better get going. I might even get a bit of weeding done before we have to collect her. Happy Sunday everyone!
