This mature cheddar was already on a half price promotion and then it had been reduced by half again. I found 6 blocks that together weighed just a smidgen under 2 Kilo and cost me £5.43. It has been grated and frozen in boxes, I have enough for several weeks now. I will keep my eyes peeled for Stilton next week, last year at this time I picked up enough at less than half price to last almost 6 months, I grate it and freeze in small amounts. It does not grate as well as cheddar so I pop the blocks in the freezer for half an hour first.
I have made good progress with the stars, the first section is up and looking good, it has 37 stars and I want to add something starry to the ends. I may add a single large star in the space above the loops.
The second section is under way, I have changed the shades used and added another colour for this one. Not for any particular reason, just to use up some more small balls of yarn.
There it is, too long for me to catch in one shot, it is hanging straight, I was on the bonk with the camera.
We did a 2 mile walk this morning, a bit over as we went as far as the library to check the opening times for next week.
The sun is shining and the air is warm, I had to undo my lightweight jacket on the walk and was still hot. I will be off for another walk later, there is a footpath that I want to explore, it is too far for Ben so I will hopefully clock up 5 miles to help make up for yesterday. I only need to do just over 3 miles a day but know that there will be some days when walking is impossible, either because of the weather or commitments. I am recording the miles in my diary and there will be no cheating, why would I cheat myself.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that this dry spell lasts for a few days, but even if it is just today it is welcome.
I watched Sherlock last night, I am not sure whether or not I liked it. There was great emphasis on the drug aspect and I feel it over iced the cake. I thought that the ending was good, hinting that the modern version was a drug fuelled dream.
I watched Mrs Brown,s Boys, yes it is rude at times but I found it very funny, much better than the Christmas Day showing. I don't know about you but I think that Brendan O'Carroll makes a better looking woman than he does a man.
That was the sum of my telly viewing yesterday, I had a good look through my Kaffe Fasset books and did a bit of surfing.
Ooh yes, I did the draw for the Kirstie book, Empire of Dirt, she is all yours, email me your snail mail and I will get it in the post.
Now my cup of tea is cooling rapidly and demands my full attention.
