What I cannot stand, is the dark mornings. I just can't wake up and get going! It's so depressing to wake up and there's no chink of light through the curtains.
Not to mind, only 16 Friday's until Christmas!!
I've had such a non stop busy week at work getting absolutely nothing done!! The weekend has been much the same!
Yesterday I walked into town with the HG to the fabric shop for a look.
Let's just leave it there shall we? ( I'll take a photo of the goodies that I managed to 'look' off the shelves another time! )
There was a first time for something too. As Madonna sang I was
" Like a virgin, touched by smoked mackerel for the very first time,"
As Katy Perry sang,
"I ate smoked mackerel and I liked it! "
What did I do on such a historic occasion? I tweeted Nigel Slater of course!! He naturally was seduced by my witty allure ( and faint tangy odour ) and replied!!
That was my bait when I went fishing!! AND I got a bite!
Kate is one of the first people I used to tweet :-) and she is like a pro at blogging and is jolly lovely.
Other things I have done today is
Knitted a bootee
Made cottage pies for tomorrow and the freezer.
Made Indian chicken curry and I had that new fangled cauliflower rice the Internet was going crazy for about six months ago pre coconut water crazy. It was so easy, if a little messy to make. FYI whizzed up cauliflower florets act EXACTLY like those teeny polystyrene balls and they stick and fly everywhere. But it actually didn't taste like whizzed up cauliflower! It made a nice bland rice substitute and as I'm trying to be slender of silhouette again like 2013 I recommend it!
I also totally cancelled out any goodness by making a jam roly poly for pudding!
My caterpillar patch is coming on in leaps and bounds. Who am I to deny God's creatures my cavelo nero?
And on that note, I've completely forgotten what else I was going to tell you!
Play nice folks
Lots of love from
