Week 31 #Project365 – 2014

Slow and quiet week for us. Didn’t go far and didn’t do very much.

Sunday – A second night of the neighbour’s security light shining through our windows and coming on at the slightest breath of air. He put it up on Friday and then went away on Saturday.. fortunately he came back on Sunday afternoon. Hubby popped over to tell him about the light and he was up and down the ladders from around 9;30 until 11pm! He eventually got the timer right and pointed the light down.. Phew thank goodness!!

Monday – a visit to the hospital for Hubby for a routine test.

Tuesday – a tidy up and washed the kitchen down. Cooker, cabinets, tiles, worktops, floor all done. Takes some time to do (I have a BIG kitchen!)
I made Toad in Hole for tea and was impressed with how much it rose.. looked more like toad in the sinkhole!! The dish is about 2 inches deep and it was easily 3 to 4 inches above the rim!

Wednesday – Orange Wednesday this week was Hercules. Some of the reviews were mixed, saying it couldn’t make up it’s mind if it’s an action film or a comedy. I could see what they meant, it is full of action but there are some funny lines that cut through the drama. At first it feels unnecessary but it just becomes part of the film.  On the whole it is an enjoyable romp.

Thursday/Friday trundled about the house, catching up on competitions and reviewing our finances. BORING!!!

Saturday – A celebratory lunch out with our best friends. From the first day they moved to their new house, nearly two years ago, they’ve been pestered in one way and another by their neighbours and it all resulted in a court case and an ASBO being granted against the neighbours. If it had been happening to us I’d have been sectioned by now!

    That light is AWFUL. Thank goodness your neighbour was so compliant about moving it. Your poor friends, the stress of having bad neighbours must be dreadful. Haven’t had toad in the hole for decades! Must make it. Hope yours tasted as good as it looks.

    that light looks very annoying, but great he has got it sorted, handy in the winter for security. I have been rehoused in the past due to bad neighbours, after the 3rd time of taking them to court, and it is stressful, more so as we did not have a phone to phone the police.
    It certainly did rise, Im not a lover of yorkshire pud, but looks delicious, a wee bit onion gravy would top it off nicely

    your toad in the deep hole is very imporessive – i rarely manager to make the perfect one, either my batter rises but underneath is soggy, or it cooks ok but doesnt rise! i am better at cakes!
    thank goodness your neighbour corrected his light – must have been like going to bed and being in some kind of reality show lol! x

    Your friend’s neighbours sound horrific. Sounds like you have better ones.

  5. Jaime Oliver

    so pleased you guys managed to get the neighbours light sorted that would have driven me mad! xx

  6. Alison

    That toad in the hole looks immense! Those lights are so annoying when they constantly shine right on your house :/ #Project365
