Firstly thanks for the blog recommendations. X I'll work my way through those later today.

It's 8.30 and I'm sat at Daughter's house looking out the window, waiting for the RAC man. (*other breakdown firms are available hee hee)

Rather than taking the grandkids to school, we are waiting to find out what-on-earth is the matter with our car. We got here, but didn't realise the screaming, grating noise was us until we were pulling into the road.


While I'm a-waiting, I'll tell you about today's soup that's in my slow cooker.

Leek and potato 

I put two French onion stock cubes, four peeled and chopped potatoes, three chopped leeks and half a head of chopped celery in the slow cooker with enough water to cover everything.

It's on slow cook so that it'll be ready for tea time.


I'm going to stack Daughter's dishwasher and push her hoover around while we wait for the car fixing wizard.

Ah well, it's all part of life's rich adventure!!

More later.



  1. The soup sounds delicious. Hope the car isn't too expensive to repair.

    1. You'll never guess what it was..a tiny stone inside the wheel/brake area. Took the repair chap seconds to fix! X

  2. Did the kids get the day off school?????

    1. Nope - Daughter had to go into work late. X
