On Saturday morning Jon was up first, made tea and brought it back to bed where we lay chatting until 9am. As he needed to pop to the vets to pick up Stephen's prescription he left me in charge of the sausages. I stripped and changed the bed, loaded the washing machine and threw it in the tumble drier 15 minutes later. By now Jon was back and we ate our sausage sandwiches.
When I was changing the bed I realised that it had been four years since we'd last bought new bed linen so I had a look at La Redoute (my go-to place for pure cotton bedding) and treated us to this gorgeous responsibly produced duvet set along with some organic cotton pillowcases and a sheet from their winter sale. Not super cheap but their stuff lasts years.
We went for a walk, rather than doing our usual circuit of the block we carried on along the main Birmingham Road looping back on ourselves. Considering we're in lockdown we couldn't believe how much traffic was on the roads - where on earth is everyone going? We spotted some painted rocks and again passed the GP surgery which still busy with Covid vaccinations. It was the first time in almost a fortnight that there wasn't snow underfoot although it was still bitingly cold.
Back at home we thawed out with a coffee. I uprooted the nasturtiums in the border which had been killed off by the snow and then took stock photos in the garden. As usual I was wearing all the layers! My 1960s suede & sheepskin coat (from Second to None), a 1980s Anokhi dress (eBay), Mum's Biba boots, a Missoni scarf (charity shop) and my me-made hat and matching beer mittens. There was a thermal bodysuit, leggings and welly socks as well but you don't need to see those!
