I know it's not properly winter until we see Arsene Wenger wearing that big coat he struggles to zip up but yesterday winterising began here.
After the launderette success of the other week I swapped the thin duvet to a thicker one, due to his ailments Dan feels the cold very easily so I thought it was for the best, in my world it's not really cold enough but it was very nice to feel the weight of it when I was in bed last night. I also put the door curtain up, it's not actually a curtain, it's an orange sheet I got from the charity shop, but it does enough to just take the edge off the cold coming in from the porch.
I'm not quite sure what he did but Dan wandered round with a caulking gun and some glue fixing things about the place, we took advantage of the nice weather yesterday and cut the front lawn, did some weeding and general tidying of things that might fly away when it gets windy.
We also had a chat about our diet, it has not been particularly healthy recently. A few extra bits and bobs have been creeping in, portion sizes have started to grow and we've been eating quite a lot of sugar. So we're clamping down on that too. It's been easy to use being busy, or tired, or stressed or whatever to justify all the sweet treats. That is coming to an end and with a bit of creative deprivation treats will go back to being treats, not a daily thing.
