Well I made a start on the spring cleaning yesterday and it'll be more of the same today; just a couple of hours effort and I should be able to finish cleaning the rest of the blinds and the remainder of the upstairs windows. I didn't achieve as much as I wanted to yesterday ... procrastination was the order of the day and I just couldn't get going so I have to be stricter with myself today and start as soon as I've had breakfast and my medication has kicked in. My reward for two hours of spring cleaning will be a walk over to the marina.
My friend T, knowing I like curry, gifted me an opened jar of tikka paste. She tried it for the first time on Sunday but said it was too spicy for her and she thought maybe I'd like it rather than her throwing the rest away - she bought a huge jar! I defrosted some chicken overnight and will use up the tikka paste today to make several portions of chicken tikka, one for tonight's meal and the rest for the freezer. This impacts on my meal plan for the month as the chicken was intended for other meals but I'm sticking with my 'no food shopping in April' goal and will amend the meal plan accordingly ... luckily I do really love curries, so this isn't a hardship in any way!
Three photos from yesterday - the daffodils and summer snowflakes are still looking good, and the magnolia buds are starting to open.
