My Week

Well, the week didnt start off too well, I got a rotten head cold and spent Monday and Tuesday feeling sorry for myself telling everyone I had man-flu! It seems to have gone now (thank goodness).

The lack of airflow on our office doesnt help much. The only ventlation is the door and as the part-timer suffers with Raynaulds Disease shes always cold, so we tend to have the door closed. With two computers, a fax machine and 4 printers, (and the fact that its a small room) it gets a bit stuffy and very warm. As I may have mentioned before, I can only see daylight when the loading bay door is open  ........

Once again, by the time the  weekend rolled around there was a list of 'to do's as long as a Leonard Cohen song, so Saturday was spent tidying the garden and doing various other domestic bits. I cant get the lawn mown one last time before Winter as its not drying out enough during the day. I will probably end up cutting it wet.
One job Ive been putting off for a while (but did make a small start on) is a corner of the bedroom we tend to sling everything into that hasnt really got anywhere else to go.....

Dont look at the dust!

 I made a small start but quickly ran out of steam, so it might have to wait until I have a couple of days off at the end of the month and can have a really good crack at it.                                                                        

Today (Sunday), weve been into the city centre to the Sheffield Food Festival. The Mother in Law heard about it on the telly yesterday so we thought we'd check it out. Its been on for 3 days and has been an annual event since 2009 (this was the first one weve been to). I got so wrapped up in seeing and tasting I forgot to take lots of pics but this one kind of sums it up .....

We chatted to people from tideswell school of food  and grow  and bought some very nice cheese from lincolnshire poacher and The Mother in Law got some venison marrow bones as a special treat for her dog.  It was a nice day for a wander around the city centre and a few samples of this and that, then  have a look at the sculptures dotted around , these 'ball' fountains are my favourites.                                                                                                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                                                    We  then decided to nip out to the new Boundary Mills Store which opened a couple of weeks ago just off the Sheffield Parkway. None of us had been to one before and (apart from the Cafe which I would advise you to avoid at all costs - theres a much nicer one in Morrisons next door) we were quite impressed. OK we only came away with some socks for OH and some books for me, but there is a nice wee sewing machine Ive put on my Birthday list!  Definitley worth a look around  - I bet it will be very busy closer to Xmas                                                                                                       
So, all in all it was quite a pleasant day out. We took our time as the Mother in Law isnt too steady on her feet, but we were in no rush and got to see a few bits that we normally wouldnt have bothered with.              

Thats all for now. Jojo
