No baking got done

I know earlier this morning I said that I might do some baking to use up some of the bananas - that didn't happen! We were all at home today; Jon was looking for work, it was Claire's day off, Emily had a snow day and Hugh is booked off work and waiting for a physio appointment for his knee. The girls and I caught up on a few taped TV programmes - Emily wanted me to watch Glee (not sure what I think of that one but seeing as Josh Groben is in it next week I'll watch again then before making my decision).
I made curried sausages for dinner; we haven't had them for a while and, with the weather the way it has been, I thought it would be a good time to make them again. It's such a simple dish but so tasty.
This afternoon I made a start on going through drawers in our bedroom, sorting out what to keep and what to get rid of. I filled about 3/4 of a black bag with stuff taken from the three bedside table drawers and two chest of drawer drawers. I was fairly ruthless, anything broken/chipped or not used or worn in the last year went in the bag. It felt good to clear some space but I now need to tidy the other drawers (or maybe rope Jon in to do those as it's his things) before deciding which room to tackle next.

Tomorrow my table will be cleared again, then maybe I'll feel more inclined to scrapbook!

More snow :os

We woke up this morning to more snow! Not as much as we had before but enough for us to get a text saying the school is closed again because the road outside isn't safe. It had been supposed to be the first day back at normal time (ie. 8.25am) so Emily and I were up at 6am - I could have had a lie in :o( lol!! If you look at the shed in the photo you can just about make out the snow coming down ;o).
I'm now off to have some breakfast and after looking at our bananas, there may be some baking going on later.
Have a cosy day!
