Crikey, another weekend is all but over!!
I have been productive over the last few days, yes I have. On Friday I did my volunteer stint in the Hospice shop and really enjoyed it. They have the best system in place for sorting clothes and I am cranking out the stuff to go in the shop.
I found the most gorgeous floral cotton dressing gown that I think I will be wearing as a jacket, and another pair of fabulous tights like some I have owned for a couple of years. I also got Jak a pair of skins. All only $2.50 each, so very good shopping.
From the Hospice I headed to work to pick up my contract to look over and sign, so it is so official now, I am back employed at the best place I have ever worked at.
Friday night I got busy in the kitchen as it was SPORT SPORT SPORT in our lounge!! Cricket then Rugby. Lemon Curd was one thing I made using some of our lemons and eggs from our girls. I still have a gazillion lemons, might juice and freeze in ice cubes.
Next it was Red Pepper Jelly - this stuff I make every year and it is divine. If you want the recipe just message me your email and I will flick it through to you. Absolutely yumo on cheese or cold meat.
Saturday arrived dead on time the following morning and I wore plaits and a frock for the day.
Some of the girls were misbehaving in TOFs strawberry patch, I had a lot of tidying up to do before he saw the evidence!!
Not Coral and Dorothy,
they are clucky as hell at the moment.
nothing to see here!!
Yes Saturday was hard work, I think Oscar and I spent a considerable amount of time watching recorded stuff on TV. Bit of a catch up day for me as there has been so much farking cricket to watch live. So I made the most of my viewing time that had been allocated to me.
Today, Sunday, I popped out in the morning and caught up with some friends, delivering Jam and drinking tea at both places. When I arrived home I found TOF up a tree.
The Apple tree to be precise. Now I have a bucket full of Apples to play with, as well as the Lemons. So I can see a night of stewing Apple very soon in my future.
This afternoon I baked. Well I have promised a cake for the lads at work, and I knew TOF would frown so I made him a smaller one. Sultana and Cranberry cake. When they were cool enough I iced them.
This is TOFs. He is going away for the week with his work so he can take it with him. The shapes are white chocolate, a cheats way of decorating and the squiggles are glitter gel icing that comes in a squeezable pen thing. I had fun playing.
And this is for the lads!!
