I hope you have had a great weekend too – we sure have.
Lots of us-time and that made us more productive when it came to work-time. Plus we are loving more daylight hours.
It felt so spring like I started to do some spring cleaning – always good for our charity as I usually sell stuff. I will work on that later this week. However, we also did a fair bit baking and cooking – on Sundays for past few weeks I have made big batches of soups – for us and for my parents and recently widowed sister in law. I also made some bread and lasagnes. We are all set for a busy week. However Ian cut his finger and went in search of a band-aid. Easy to find in this house as we have two big first aid boxes – filled with a variety of things to cure all ailments.
When was the last time you checked your first aid box? If, like us, it was more than a couple of years ago, it is worth doing. We threw out bandages and plasters dated 1999 (yes, really), expired Savlon, allergy cream, Vicks vapour rub and have a wee bag ready to hand into our local pharmacy to dispose of old medicines. I will replace some items tomorrow but realise we don’t need them all. It also reminded me to replace the first aid box we have in the charity office – mostly it was fine but best to be safe.
No pics of me cooking but some of me working later and I also thought you might like to see this time lapse video (combined with some drone footage that the It’s Good 2 Give Ripple REtreat architect, Tony Kettle, took in December). Starting from October 2015 right through to January 2017 you can watch the progress of our Retreat in under 2minutes!
