Fourth Organic Vegetable Box

15 days gone already...WOW! Okay then, updating now.

I collected my fourth veg box and here it is:

Onion, red and white
I also buy a 1 litre bottle of apple juice
I decided to purchase the Christmas veg and fruit boxes and here those are:





brussel sprouts

salad bag


parsley - flat leaf

red cabbge

chilli pepper





1 litre Apple Juice
Local honey
I am thinking of continuing ordering the veg bags/boxes in the New Year also.
I have cleaned, cleaned and CLEANED some more over these last couple of weeks and I still have a few more jobs left to do. I clean under, behind, on top of everywhere for Christmas. I like to see the New Year in in a lovely clean home!! I am going to finish off the last few jobs this weekend and I am also going to do some baking for the family. One thing I am going to make is eggnog; I have never had eggnog before so that is something I am curious to try. I am also going to have a look in my cupboard to see if I have any red wine for mulled wine...YUM!
Now that I have my oven working again I decided to move my Kenwood mixer to a different cupboard so I have easy access to it which pleases my boys because that means I bake a little bit more for them :)
I popped in on my Mother on Wednesday and as usual she gave me some goodies; biscotti and seasonal/limited edition ginger latte coffee which I am going to drink. I have to confess to not being so careful with sticking to raw over this Christmas but come the New Year it is a different story.
I still have two more Christmas presents to buy which I will probably pop out on Tuesday/Christmas Eve to buy and stock up on a few essentials.
Well that is me for today. I should be back tomorrow :)

Third Organic Vegetable Box

I have just been to collect my third veg box/bag and here it is:


white cabbage



brussel sprouts

salad bag

chilli pepper

And that is what is in this weeks veg bag/box.
Next week is my last veg bag/box except that I might order one more before Christmas which is the Christmas order and then I am thinking of continuing with my veg bag/box in the New Year.

I didn't realise until I got to the farm that my back tyre on my car is going down....oops! I'm pleased a policeman didn't notice, I passed two of them. Well, no harm done to myself or anyone else which is the main thing!

Right then, back to my Christmas thorough cleaning.

I might get back later today, I will try! :)

Bad Sleeps

Over the last two nights I have had such restless sleeps. My hubby has noticed that whenever my monthly is due, whether it turns up or not, my sleeps are always bad, he noticed, not me :) My hubby must know more about me than I do sometimes.
Over the last few weeks I have noticed that I haven't been wanting to have a morning sleep, which I put down to managing to go to the loo and so not being so toxic...sorry, TMI But today I did doze off for two hours which will be because of the restless couple of nights AND I had a headache which turned into a migraine, I have had to take painkillers for it today...Ah well, it will balance itself out again in a few days.

Today I have been stitching the hem back up on one pair of my living room curtains; I HATE stitching!! Done now :) I have also done about four loads of laundry and cleaned another of my kitchen cupboards. I still have such a lot to do.
Whilst I was cleaning the kitchen cupboard I found a box of sachets for Mulled wine...YUM!!

I still haven't put the Christmas tree up yet but tomorrow is the day:) AND I am also going for it to get my kitchen sorted. The kitchen is the biggest job! I want to finish cleaning all the insides of my kitchen cupboards and that also means finishing cleaning the tops of the rest of my wall cupboards, re-organise my cupboards and polish my kitchen cupboard doors, clean inside and outside and the contents and on top of my display cabinet and fridge freezer, pull out and clean under and behind my fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher, clean my ovens :) clean the radiator and my kitchen door, back door and large cupboard door, clean the ceiling light fitting - Oh! And clean my kitchen window and sill and then put the blinds back up...PHEW! That little lot will probably take all day with hardly a break but it always feels good when it is done!!

Well, my appetite isn't too good today although I just know that will come back :/

That is all for today, not a lot to report actually.
Back tomorrow.
