Snow trek...done!

Well as you know from my last post we are snowed in with no supplies so this morning, I went on a 6 mile snow trek to get supplies. Now 6 miles may not sound too far to walk but when you are more than knee high in snow it's hard work! I can really feel it in my legs now, but on the plus side it was exercise and I took some nice pictures.

Our Willow Tree

This is our drive

And our back garden! Wipeout

Anyway once i was back from the shops I made a brunch for me and phil, egg, sausage, beans. Naughty but was really appreciated.

Then this afternoon we had some tomato soup to warm up. Dinner was going to be a roast dinner but Phil is still poorly and it's not worth me doing one for just me. So i'll just throw soething together for myself with what I have here.

Our neighbour (farmer) said are going to try and clear the road tomorrow which would be ace so I can get to the supermarket and get some proper food in, plus I want to get most of the christmas stuff in so I don't have to worry about it.

Right i'm off for a hot batch and read my book. Then i'll be reading some blogs to get some more motivation and meal ideas.

Snowed in!

Hi guys,

Sorry for the lack of posting, i'm still in my "slump" I'm hoping when New Year comes round i'll have fresh motivation and perspective. I'm hoping i'll be in a job then too! I think getting back into a routine will be good for me. I had an interview on Friday and they called me back a couple of hours after asking for me to go to a 2nd interview which I have Monday. Fingers crossed!!!!!!!

Well here in Kings Sutton the snow is insane. We live in the middle of no-where down a farm track. I tried to get out earlier but it wasn't happening. Because we have no food, not even bread or eggs! I attempted the trek across the fields 4 miles to the shop. It was a total wipeout, i couldn't see as the snow was coming down so thick and fast and I couldn't wade through all the snow. I'll see what it's like tomorrow and get supplies. I'm supposed to be doing a large cupcake order tomorrow but I don't have the stuff! Here is a pic outside my house

If we had supplies I love the idea of being snowed in but we were not prepared!

Food wise today has been random due to the no food situation- breakfast was cheerios, lunch was some pickled beetroot and some cheese and dinner is a sausage stew, that was all I could create with what i had!

Anyway I'm off to look after a poorly Phil, eat the dinner and then snuggle up meal planning.

Sorry for being a rubbish blogger at the moment guys. xx
