Up early (well, for a Saturday) to be re-measured for the support stockings, only to be told that the instructions to rest my legs before arriving should have included "and don't put the existing stockings on". So I have a Form to fill in before I get out of bed tomorrow morning.
Onward to the bank to check out some ancient critical illness plans, expecting to cash them in and start again, only to be told that they're excellent plans, and we should be looking at adding things to them. (And getting the address right, ten years late. Oops.)
The craft stall on the market had some fun fringy yarn that might turn into a scarf, and a promise of much finer "eyelash" yarn next week - sounds like I'll be clearing out his odds and ends at 50p a ball.
Dave went out again to the optician, and in his absence I got all daring and climbed the ladder into the loft for the first time in a year (ooh, you don't want to do that, it's hard work, you'll never make it up and down, you know you have to kneel to get off the ladder and that hurts, and...) well, yes, some bits do hurt, but not for very long, and the Yarn Stash was at the far end. I now have some eyelash yarn, and some DK that matches it, and a few other fun bits that again may well become scarves.
Time for a nibble - ah, those bananas are definitely past their best. This could be a cause of wailing, lamentation, and gnashing of teeth, or it could be a cause of Banana Chutney. From an old Abel & Cole newsletter:
Peel & dice 2 bananas
Mix with a pinch of salt, a splash of cider vinegar, black pepper, ground cloves, a hinr of cinnamon, finely chopped fresh chilli, a little grated ginger and a pinch of sugar.
Taste and adjust as needed.
This was five bananas rather than two, so the splashes, pinches, and so on grew a bit, but the results look and taste good.
Onward to the remains of the Mutiple Bird, which have met a large onion and some mushrooms, and are now simmering away becoming stew for lunch. (And dinner, and quite a few other meals, from the look of that. Over-catering? Me?)
A new side-table for the lounge has been acquired from Poundstretcher and assembled, and looks good.
I'd better get Dave to tell me how to get the new Wii working with the Fit before he leaves (it look AGES and much hassle to get the thing to talk to the Virgin Media router), but at half-way through the day, we've already got quite a lot done.
Eleventh day, pipers.... maybe a Scottish CD is called for? Or the one with carols on panpipes? I don't think I have any carols on bagpipes, I should correct that.
