I settled for banana pancakes, this time I added 3 dessert spoons of gram flour and a little baking powder, they were very light and fluffy, 1 banana and 1 egg gave me 4, too much really.
I did not add any syrup and they were lovely, the gram flour gave a light nutty taste almost turning them to banoffee cakes.
After breakfast I managed to get a load of washing done and dried, and soon it will be ironed.
A couple of years ago I bought myself an Olisso iron from the US, I had seen them used by several quilters, including Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Co.
See the little feet, as soon as you take your hand off they drop down, no need to use the iron rest, they are never big enough, and no scorch marks.
I knew that I would need a transformer but other things took my mind away from it. Then I buckled down and bought one and then left them both in their boxes, I can be a dim wit at times.
Now they are out and in use and it has made ironing a pleasure. I nearly said Joy but there are limits!
The transformer is not pretty but it is not huge and sits on the floor quite happily, the iron lead is very long so I can tuck the box out of the way.
I have been out in the garden, tied up the sweet peas and pegged down some more strawberry runners. I have 4 varieties and have not bothered to keep them separate, they will be going into troughs soon and then onto stands. I want to keep them away from the slugs, I will net them as well to make sure that the birds do not get at them.
Ben is now letting me know that he would really like to go for a walk.
I bit of a ramble today, and now I am off for another with Ben.
