What a Change...

Definitely a change in the air today and yesterday. A lot cooler and almost a touch of wintry weather. Bonfire night last night, and there were some foreworks over at the Hotel but they didn't seem to disturb Rusty so that was good. 
Vin surprised me last night by doing a fire, so that is the first of the season. Lovely it was, warms the whole house up,because we have some radiators which run off the boiler at the back of the fire. 
Today we did the bedding, not a suitable day for drying, so that means the tumble dryer on all day. Lord knows how our parents managed with cotton sheets etc., and drying them. We used to do the washing on a Sunday mostly in the early days when we were working, and the drying was doneon a clothes horse round the fire. Mostly the house would smell of steam and laundry. 
Jane has just rung up, she is off today, and was on her way to tesco over the road to get some supplies in. She isn't working tonight either so that will be a bit of a break for her. 
Tonight we are having:
Something from the freezer, not sure what yet.
Veggies, asparagus, broccoli and beans.
potato croquettes.
