DH is in Bridgend. No problems whatsoever on the trains, despite warnings on the First Great Western website. Although I miss him when he's away I also love having the house to myself for a bit. DS1 has been at work most of the day and I've sat on the sofa watching all my daytime TV and knitting for hours (yet another pair of socks for DH). And I don't even feel guilty about it. He'll be staying with his cousin and her husband and will get well fed and looked after, so I'm taking a few days to have a bit of a break from routine as well. He's had quite a few trips down to Wales on his own over the years and I have never been away alone except for one weekend when DD1 was about 2, so 28 years ago. I think I deserve to take things easy for a couple of days.
I've not really cooked, I just fried a couple of eggs with oven chips and baked beans for DS's dinner. I've been having a veg, fruit and yogurt day to try and compensate before weigh-in day tomorrow for all the naughties I've eaten this week . It's a fortnight since I weighed in and last week I ate badly nearly every day so I'm expecting a gain, just hoping I'll have done enough that it won't be too dreadful.
Yesterday we went to DD3 and BF's for dinner and had a lovely roast meal; lamb, mint sauce, stuffing, yorkshire puds, roast spuds, parsnips and carrots, plus broccoli and cauliflower. Dessert was sticky toffee pud and custard for me and jam roly poly for DH. DD even got me a Weight Watchers pud, although I think the roasties, yorkshires and stuffing probably undid any good work. We really enjoyed it and it was a treat to have a meal cooked for us. They're settling in well and making the flat really nice.
Weather here today was dull but dry, still a bit windy but much less so, and its been quite warm. Of course, tomorrow when I have to go out it's due to rain nearly all day. I hope the weather has been a bit better where you are.
That's all I have for today since I really haven't done much of anything. I'm going to knit some more this evening, and then I get to go to bed and have the whole bed to myself and no snoring to keep me awake. I'd better not get too used to it; DH is back on Thursday.
