A tortoise sort of day

Inspired by ideas in slimming class this morning - and Husband's economy drive - I decided to dig out my slow cooker and make a stew.

What I forgot is that slow cooking is ... well, slow. Dinner could be a bit late tonight.

The slow cooker was one of Husband's Christmas presents to me many years ago. I was surprised to receive it as I hadn't requested or indicated any interest in one. It turned out he'd won it in a raffle in work.

My life is a little disorganised at the moment so this morning I did what any sensible woman does at such times: I made a list.

Progress through it is about as speedy as the slow cooker. Although I have posted two birthday cards - both of which are at least 2 weeks late. Are you spotting a trend here?

I suppose I should be doing something now rather than blogging. I know: I'll add some more things to my list.

Postscript
The Domestic Goddess strikes again: I gave up and put the slow cooker in the oven.

Oh yes - we had a slow cooker as a wedding present from my class back in 1988! I still have it - I tend not to use it with having an Aga but I could never part with it!

Good luck with the slimming - I get weighed tomorrow - lost 10.5 lbs so far!

Good idea ! There's nothing so satisfying as a good list .

I've stopped trying to lose weight now, mrs n, but I don't want to put it back on. I'l have to pop over now and see how you did.

And this is definitely a good list, sonata. It even includes 'write Christmas cards'!

The theory is good, leslie, if you're organised ...
