So we had a trip to our local garden centre this morning and I've made a start on purchasing the seeds for this years growing . I'm quite excited at the prospect of getting my hand dirty!!
Gardening aside, it's been a busy week , there have been a lot of demands on my time as chief cook and bottle washer!! here are just a few things I've made over the last few days.
Thia pumpkin and chickpea curry , this had mixed reviews between the boys !
My eldest son ( 10 years old ) made this with a bit of direction from me, for his home work . It was rather tastey!!
Cappucino cake a big hit with my youngest !!
Lemon drizzle bars , yum yum !!
So in between the cooking , childcare and housekeeping I have managed a bit of sewing and knitting time (not as much a I would like though). I am still working on a friends cushion , it should be finished very soon .I have also managed to start on one of my Christmas wool purchases .A lovely Lacey scarf that only takes a 50g ball of wool and I'm 2/3 of the way through it .
I just hope this week I get more time to sew and knit. Monday is always a good start to the week with an evening of hooky happiness with friends ( my monday evening crochet group ).
