Busy morning – well, -ish!


N’s cousin, who I haven’t seen for years, is coming to stay tonight – she’s up here on business, and N thought it would be lovely to see her, and nicer for her than a night in a hotel – though looking at the amount of dog hair on the floor, I am not sure that is entirely true.

Anyway, I am going to be busy today, giving downstairs a bit of a spruce-up, and making beef and orange casserole, and Nigella’s clementine cake for supper.  Oh – and I have decided that having a visitor counts as a special occasion, and special occasions mean a bit of a relaxing of the Small Changes rules – so I will be able to have some of the cake for my pudding.  Anyhow – it has fruit in it, so it counts as one of my five a day, right?

I am a bit nervous about tonight – I am not good with new situations, and far prefer staying safely within my comfort zone.  But I am going to try to think positively about this, and I know I will enjoy myself once she is here, and we will have a good time.  Anticipation is a bitch, though.
