This is supposed to be a blog about being creative… unfortunately I have not been very creative recently so have little to report. I did buy this lovey fabric from lovely friends and have a plan involving cushion covers for the kitchen chairs.
The things that have happened....
The weather – it’s lovely, slightly churlish, but for me it’s a bit too hot.
The gin – the cheap lidl stuff is still good
The tennis – anyone else a bit teary eyed when he won? His poor mother.
Church – I went for the first time in ages, it did me good and I should go more often
Dissertation – it’s a few words longer than it was – I can make no comment on the quality of these words
Parents – on a cruise, at some point something has been mistranslated and the crew of the ship think they are on their honeymoon
Velux windows – black out blinds are great, unless you sleep with the window open
Food – we continue with the more exciting meal plan – fish pie tonight (I haven’t puréed it to make soup…). Planned for the rest of the week, in no particular order; toad in the hole, homemade sausage rolls, dhal and smoked fish, Thai green chicken curry, risotto (do you think I can make this in a slow cooker?), field mushrooms and mozzarella burgers.
Flap-jack – I have made lots, and it was declared to be ‘fit’ by a colleague.
Harry Potter – box set of all films acquired and we are working our way through
HWMBO(I) is going to celebrate a significant birthday shortly (starts with a 5 and ends in a zero, I like to think of myself as the much younger, and something of a trophy, wife) and I have NO IDEA WHAT TO BUY FOR HIM – we can’t go away because I have work coming out of my ears (and I’m no fun at the moment), he has no interest in cufflinks and I am suffering from a significant lack of imagination.
