Well its Halloween today and feeling stiff and achey. Why I ask?
Well my daughter is having a Halloween party tonight and guess who she asked to help with the catering. Yes you got it right me. I should have known better, her culinary skills are more from her fathers side than mine. Although she is a very good organiser and skilled artistically her kitchen is significantly underused. I should have known when she invited us for christmas lunch and I had to cook and fetch the beef and her father in law the turkey, she was doing the veg but when I arrived she was in a panic and had only just started so I had to assist then.
I asked her what she wanted me to cook and she gave me a list but I also had to look on the computer for more ideas. This done I helped her with the shopping list last weekend and dutifully went to hers yesterday morning to start preparing some of the SPREAD. She was still in her pyjamas balanced on the step ladders putting up cobwebs and had not done the shopping. As my hubby had dropped me off at hers and left as I was very stiff and didnt want to drive I had to wait for her to finish the Decorating ( 1.5 hrs) and get ready ( 1.5 hrs) before we went to the shops.
There she is ready to go can she find the shopping list we made no!!!! start again get the recipes out and check the cupboards and redo it.Whoopee off we go me getting stiffer and using the supermarket trolley as a walking frame.Done the shopping to be fair managed to get the few things I needed too so saved some time and effort there and to the checkout. I am not allowed to unload the trolley onto the conveyor belt I could be charitable and say that this is because she is looing after me and to be fair she does but I have not been allowed to do this or pack the bags for a long time now because I dont do it the way she wants I dont know when she became the parent and me the child.
Sorry had to get the sausage rolls out of the oven.
Then back to hers to start yes 2pm now to start she doesnt want me to do that until she has cleaned the kitchen up but I did anyway not got all day. 4 Hours later rang hubby to pick me up which he did and bless him he made my tea, That might have been because our daughter told him to look after me because I wasnt well, but he did it.
Still got snake pizza to make and cheese fingers with blood but thats all now.
I wonder why Im achey and feeling c**p these last 2 days.!!!
To the party tonight Ive decided to give my liver a rest as at Rheumy on Mon 1st appt and if I need to start any treatment need to give it a fighting chance so not drinking was going to dress as a bloody bride but as I said to OH I think I may go as a CREAKY OLD BAT
