I have cleaned the oven. Last year I paid a nice man to do it. However this year, I spent the money I'd been saving in my 'clean oven purse' on some boots! So hands, knees, Mr Muscle and my steam cleaner have tackled the grime. How do ovens get so grotty? It was DISGUSTING!
Not any more. It'll do, till I get the man back!
I also have scrubbed out the dark corner unit that always smells a bit fusty. I put a portable dehumidifier in the back of it now. All contents have been sorted, washed and will be put back as soon as I've posted this.
It's a gloriously curiously warm sunny day. I've washing pegged out and I've weeded the front again. I'll do the back
another day. I want to sew tomorrow.
Nowt much to report really.
When I was pegging out, I perused the garden. The lawn really could do with its last cut. I've a fuschia that's going MAD! It's well over 6ft talk now and flowering like its life depends on it! It does. The flowers stopped me from hacking it down to ground level!
Some adorable blue little flowers I spotted in an overgrown tub! I just love the colour of them.
Right, the sun has dropped already, it's only bloody half three! Must get the washing in, I hate it when it goes damp on the line.
Tea last night was absolutely DIVINE.
I tried out my new 2 in 1 Actifry. Chips in the bottom and then some Flat Iron steak on the top tray. I tried it after seeing Joy's blogs about it. It was juicy as anything. I cooked it medium and it was perfect!
We are having those truffle thingies tonight. They better not splatter in my clean oven! Best get the spuds peeled! I love being off! This time normally, I'm taking the register and handing out juice and biscuits to the little Night Owls!
Oh and Carol, I'll be posting you one of my billy bargain but very delightful M&S cards in December xxx
Bye for now
Lots of love from
