The day started as per usual. Around 6ish, let the dog out, frothy coffee and a bit of telly watching.
I do like Create and craft on s Sunday and the designer of the quilt I showed you was on again. Anyway, I saw her new design, had some Christmas money and decided to treat myself to it. Very excited for it coming. It is definitely more tricky than the one I've done but it will bring hours of joy to me. Plus it will be a reminder of how lucky I was to be treated by all the mums and dads and in laws I have! ( My Mum and Dad, ma in law pa in law to clarify. )
Took Bluebell for a walk and we had the whole field to ourselves. Here she is having a rest after catching the ball a zillion times.

Our Sunday Roast was beef and yorkshires. I was very pleased with them! Apple for scale. I do prefer mine a little less brown, but were delicious with mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, roast sweet potatoes, glazed carrots ( thanks Gary Rhodes ), peas and steamed sweetheart cabbage and gravy. no room for pudding!
|The one at the top looks like it's singing!!! Did somebody say just eat? Oh go on then!! My photo quality of colour is poor - my roast beef was meduim and so tender. Plenty left over for today.|
No plans as such for this Bank Holiday Monday. I might bake some biscuits. I've a dark load to do. Sunshine all day forecast but much colder with a high of 10C showing on my phone. Currently blogging from bed, Bluebell has had her breakfast and is now snoozing within the quilt!
Thought I'd share a funny message I got from my sister yesterday about William - he is so hilarious by accident. He was baking a cake.
He asked her if you catch coronavirus from flour. She told him no. He wanted to know why she'd made him wash his hands then!!! Boys! Hideous filthy germ ridden beings!
Dunno what's for tea today. Most probs cold roast beef, chips and gravy. What are you having?
Lots of love from
