A pop in and out at Tesco, quick visit to Lidl and then into Poundstretcher for some cheapo Aran yarn.
A new multi coloured hat is on the pins, I love bright hats and have made this pattern a few times. It is simple and keeps my head warm and my hair under control in the wind.
My EPP project, little hexie butterflies.
This one is nearly completed, I plan on machining these onto pocket squares for my Dress a Girl project.
Before I went to Ponty I decided to do some baking, a batch of Cheese Whirls and a half batch of Cinnamon Buns(no frosting)
There was another tray of these, some are in the freezer and some have gone to friends
The Cinnamon Buns were tested as soon as I could pick one up without getting 1st degree burns, Oh Yum.
4 have gone to friends and the rest have been open frozen and wrapped.
I can put up the recipes if anyone is interested.
When I was in Ponty I picked up 2 big Avocado Pears for 10p!!, Guacamole here I come.
Onion, Green Chili, Garlic and Lime juice, a little ground cumin and a sprinkle of cayenne, the flesh of 2 Avocados and there it is, Heaven in a dish.
A look in the fridge and oh yes, salad, lots of it for a crisp, fresh tasting dinner.
Very healthy you think, well yes and so did I. Then I looked at the Cheese Whirls, had another look in the fridge and Oops. just look what happened.
Warmed and sliced.
A home made burger, then I added a dollop of guacamole and had a mountain of salad, 2 people full to the brim for very little outlay, both in cash and time.
I was thinking along the lines of a warm Cinnamon roll with ice cream for pudding, but no way could I squeeze it in. About 3 hours later I managed 3 plums and a few grapes.
I managed 5 hours unbroken sleep last night and feel much more chipper this morning. I plan a trip to the library and (fingers crossed) some bulb planting into pots today.
Maggie and I spent a pleasant hour with a bulb catalogue a few weeks ago, and armed with a 25% off voucher we did some crafty shopping, of the buy 2 get one free variety. I now have hundreds of bulbs in boxes looking for homes.
I better get a wiggle on.
