My breakfast is a moveable feast, eaten sometime between 5:30 and 9:30 depending on what time I get up and how busy I am or what I have planned. What I have varies from toast and marmite/peanut butter/marmalade to muesli or porridge. On Sunday I decided to have a real treat,
Toast, scrambled eggs and mushrooms, lush. Then I was full all day, I made Cottage pie and had that at around 7.00.
On Monday I took someone to Neath for an appointment, while I was waiting for them I had a stroll round the shops. I popped into Wilko to look for a new lead for Ben and picked up these,
Retail value £8.48, I paid 60p, nice. I have tucked them away ready for next year.
In the afternoon I took Ben for a ramble and found a small handful of berries, these are now in a box in the freezer.
Sorry it is a bit blurred, my first blackberries this year, all 4 of them and some yellow raspberries growing wild.
A few strawberries, I am picking every day, to chop and add to the freezer box.
Today it has pelted down with strong winds on and off all day, I have hung new curtains in my bedroom, tidied some books up and made these.
My second flirtation with Cathedral Window Block, a little better. I have to experiment with the pressure on the foot, the seams are thick there are 6 layers of fabric there and the top layer is moving slightly. These will become cushion covers, hopefully there will be another one to join them.
Dinner tonight was a very lazy pizza, a cheese and tomato thin crust from Lidl with extra toppings. Naughty as I had time to make it from scratch but....... My freezers are full and I am going to eat my way through them. I want to start tucking away some hearty winter warmer meals, I stocked up on half price beef from Lidl ready for casseroles and some bargain chickens from the village shop. I like to fill the oven when it goes on and the slow cooker will make 6 good portions at a time.
Now I am back to my hand stitching, the single quilt that was on the frame is all but finished, I am about a third way round slip stitching the binding down.
