Short expeditions

Besides exactly what I would expect (M&S, Sainsbury’s) there are also two rather popular and easy to find purveyors of food stuffs – Lidl & Aldi. Yes, even though the UK has bailed on the EU, it hasn’t stopped those two chains from having stores in the less affluent neighborhoods. They have good prices for what they do carry. What they carry does depend on availability at that particular point in time (so this is not the place to go if you are brand fussy) but makes sense in most other aspects. I was looking for bagged, ready to heat Indian food as I used to get from Sainsbury or Tesco’s when I lived in Camberley.

Here I found it in plastic (which didn’t thrill me) but picked up some snacks, Chicken Tikka and Chicken Masala for mid-days as Beverley will be out at meetings.

Otherwise, I am feeling better from what I am starting to label as a really bad cold. My cough is just about gone and my fever has vanished…So lots of sleep, audiobooks and a bit of stitching,

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
