The dour sky did nothing to enhance the mood - not that we were in anyway feeling negative or grumpy however, we were not feeling inspired either.
To get myself motivated I wrote a list of 'things to do', 'things to make', 'things still to buy' and then attempted to work my way through them. Himself was drafted in as an essential component of the plan, thank goodness as he gently good humoured me as even I thought I was more scatty than usual.
After lunch we set out - ready to do battle. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised as the dire warnings by the radio of the thronging panic-driven masses were hugely exaggerated and places were no busier than a normal weekend.
By the time it was time for afternoon tea we'd crossed off the vast majority of my list - phew.
Then for some bizarre reason, later as I was cooking our evening meal, I had the urge to make biscuits - strange I know. Any hoo, Eldest and Himself have quite happily consumed the majority of them.......
Peanut Butter biscuits - not my usual recipe - couldn't find that book - wonder if in a fit of tidy-it-up-ness, I either re-homed it or indeed tidied it away beyond recovery. So, I resorted to my second favourite cook book - the internet.
A quick and easy recipe - the biscuits came up very buttery and very 'short' and certainly did not last very long!
PS - I learnt a new word today... Yex. (and yex - I mean yes, it does exist!)
