Quiet day here, he has gone out, so have the day to myself, peace and quiet.  Weather is still bad, with more on the way I believe. It's very blustery and frequent heavy downpours so far today. I've got the shopping to put away from yesterday, went to Waitrose for a change, it's so nice seeing different things, but the shopping takes twice as long!  I did treat myself to some beautiful anemones in jewel colours :)  I managed to get a good bit done on my  red cardigan yesterday, as had some waiting around and time in the car, so hope to get it actually finished later, maybe while indulging in a film.  Yesterday saw me at Nando's for the first time; had a lovely meal of Piri-piri chicken with a beautiful huge avocado and bean salad; really was a good meal, with a very young and very charming Italian waiter  ;)  Wedding plans continue, and my purple velvet top has arrived in good time. More divorce paperwork to be slotted in today too, next visit to the solicitor is on Tuesday - I have been allocated to a different one now in a more local office, so will get to meet her then. Still looking about at houses, just to see what's available and seeing what I don't want, which is just as important as what I do want! Have also invested in two pairs of dungarees for the first time in many years - had forgotten how comfy they are, not to mention practical.
I  have also acquired a vintage cake tin of a kind I have been hankering after for many years :)

My mother had one of these with a green lid when I was growing up. I'm pretty sure it had "Tala" embossed on it. Oh this picture has certainly brought lots of memories flooding back : )
