Three Things February

Tuesday, March 03, 2020

I've copied these questions from Bev because I rather enjoyed the randomness of them.

Three things I liked about February
1. An impromptu trip to Chelmsford Cathedral to see Kezzie play in her flute ensemble, Flutista. My iMac broke so I was forced to take a few days off work (it's all fixed now). That morning I decided to just hop on a train and go. It was wonderful to see (and hear!) Kezzie play.

2. A night with friends. I hadn't seen a few of them for months and no sooner had we walked through the door, we fell straight back into our usual easy banter. It was a most enjoyable evening with excellent food, and gin.

3. The third thing is between noticing how light the evenings are getting, or taking my time over reading a fabulous book lent to me, and highly recommended, by a friend.

Three things I’m looking forward to in March
1. Going to see The Russian State Ballet of Siberia perform The Nutcracker with my Mum.
2. Coffee with friends
3. My nephews 18th birthday

Three vegetables I eat the most
1. Tenderstem broccoli
2. Onion
3. Spinach

Three grocery items I buy every week
1. Oat milk
2. Cat food
3. Cat treats

Three things we go through like crazy in my house
1. Teabags
2. Cat food
3. Hummus

Three things I always have time for
1. Baths
2. Reading
3. Cat cuddles

Three things I never have time for
1. Keeping up with the blogs I like to read. This has been more recently, I've been a bit absent from blogland, finding the time to sit and properly keep up to date has felt almost impossible at times, life has been busy and I've been making sure that I make time to switch off and step away from tech. I hope to catch up with my favourite blogs soon.

2. Housework. It's always low on my list of priorities and often doesn't get done properly, which is a shame because I love a neat and tidy house. I give everything a quick 'once over' rather than the jolly good clean it really deserves and promise myself I'll do a better job next time. I always end up doing something less boring instead. For example, I was going to roll up my sleeves and get stuck in on Sunday, and then Andy came home and asked if I would like to go for a walk on the beach, followed by a spot of lunch somewhere. I mean, there's no competition is there? The cobwebs can wait until another day.

3. Roast dinners. I love eating roast dinners, but I hate the faff of cooking them. I find it so boring, and I especially dislike the fact that you have to cook certain things for it to be considered a 'real' roast dinner (insert eye rolling emoji).

What are you looking forward to in March?

  1. These are all excellent things. I do love a roast dinner, yorkshire puddings are my favourite.
    March has gotten off to a good start as its my mums birthday and am enjoying celebrating that.

    1. I think it's the meat and gravy I like the most in a roast, I'd be happy with just those on my plate!
      Happy Birthday Lucy's Mum!

  2. How wonderful that you went to see Kezzie play!
    I love a roast dinner but I can rarely be bothered to make one. One thing I miss about England is being able to go out to the pub for Sunday dinner!

    1. It was so, so lovely to see Kezzie play. I don't think I'd ever sat a listened to flute music before, I really enjoyed it!
      I sometimes roast a chicken and have it with mash and a few veg but that's as close as I get, I can't be bothered with all the trimmings.

  3. I love lists like this - think I'll have a bash myself. I love March because it's my birthday month so this weekend, I'm getting my hair cut, going out for dinner with Mr P, meeting mates on Sunday and then Mr P has booked my actual birthday off so I'm envisaging a dog walk and pub lunch, if the weather's okay x

    1. That sounds fabulous, I hope you have a lovely time - Happy Birthday!

  4. Love the photo!
    How nice to be able to see Kezzie play.
    I always find posts like these fascinating, they give a great insight into our virtual friend's lives.
    I'm looking forward to a day out with a friend tomorrow, rummaging in charity shops and lunch in Spoons. It's been a while! x

    1. Cutest photobomb ever!
      Everyone should see Kezzie play, she's amazingly talented.
      Hope you enjoy your day out, sounds like a pretty perfect day.

  5. Oh, how amazing that you were able to go and see Kezzie play! My favourite part of February is going on a short break to Bruges to celebrate our Anniversary. The rest of the month was a bit of a washout ... What I'm looking forward to in March is for Spring to finally arrive, going for some well-needed nature walks, and the charity shop retro event next week. Wishing you an excellent month of March! xxx

    1. I enjoyed reading about your Bruges trip, it's such a beautiful place.
      It will be nice for Spring to arrive and to finally see life starting to return to nature. I hope March is good for you.

  6. It was SOOOO lovely to have you at my concert! Honestly, it really made my day that you came! I just wish I was able to nip off to the Charity shops with you!
    I have to say, I really want to eat my Stepmum's Roast Chicken dinner. It is so tender and succulent but they never cook it when we come over now because CBC is pescetarian. I find this quite sad. That said, I've given up meat for Lent. I never cook it for the same reason! I feel like that about catching up with blog posts! I've just been so busy and esp because I don't have a computer at the moment and CBC gets cross with me using his too much! He's currently conked out on the sofa so I am taking advantage!

    1. I enjoyed your concert so much!
      Roasts that someone else has cooked always seem to taste nicer than mine, I think the cooking of it takes away the enjoyment of eating it a little. What a shame you don't get your Stepmum's roasts anymore, they sound delicious. I don't think I could give up meat, but I eat less than I used to.
      I had to chuckle at the mental image of you sneaking onto CBCs computer as he snoozed, but what a shame you don't have a computer to use. It can be frustrating to want to catch up with blogs but not being able to, for whatever reason.

  7. I share your feelings on roast dinner, there's always so much mess and everyone else slopes off and doesn't help!!! Looking forward in March to less mud in the woods I think as I have been walking rescue dogs and it is like liquid cement out there at the moment. Looking forward to getting some gardening done too.

    1. I try to clean up as much as I can when cooking, but there is just so much more to clean up after a roast! But all this thinking about roast dinners does make me want one, so I might just have to suck it up and get one cooked.
      I haven't been to the woods recently, the soil here is clay and I can't make it to the woods without picking up half a tonne of mud on my boots on the way. But, then I guess it's a good leg workout!
      I can't wait to get out into the garden again too, I've done a few bits in the greenhouse but I want to do so much more...
