Worn myself out

By thinking ( as usual) that I can do everything as I used to before all this happened. 
Sunday lunch was rump steaks with a mushroom and garlic red wine sauce,plus braised red cabbage made with chopped leeks, a touch of Allspice, sone brown sugar, salt and enlighten orange juice to moisten it while cooking.
We also had French beans and Mangetout Peas, and wedge potatoes done with a tiny bit of oil in the oven. 
Then I made some Apple Strudels, trying to unroll the Filo pastry was very difficult,so I was glad that I still have a carer to help me! Chopped three Bramley apples into small cubes, mixed them together with a handful of breadcrumbs, caster sugar, some candied peel ,flaked almonds and some Cinnamon.
Brushed three  sheets of filo with melted unsalted butter,placed the filling on one side,and then rolled it up ,tucking in the sides so it made a parcel. Brushed the top with more melted butter.
Baked in a hot oven for around 3/4 of an hour, but check to see that it isn't burning! 
After that I made a cake , no wonder I was exhausted.
