Well I had hoped to do a huge gardening post for this weekend but as the gardens currently under water and we have a six inch deep moat formed across the front of the house getting closer and closer to the front door , I think we will give that one a miss...lol
All ive done this weekend is stare at the rain , potter about and do a little cross stitch .
I thought i would roast the garden hazelenuts and make some fruit cakes , it went badly, what should have been a simple job went a tad wrong when Mr Bah Humbug needed my help with an urgent issue then the smoke alarms went off and you guessed it id a whole oven of flames and smoke, house still stinks...lol
Plan B was to make jam , ive a ton of fruit in the freezer that needs using up mainly raspberries , no sugar AARRGGHH I had several bags but someone has used the lot , We dont use it for anything but jam making and the occasional cake , the culprit would appear to be Sarcastic son who informs me he takes five sugars in his coffee . It has to be really cheap for me to stock pile it and its over a year since I bought five bags on my travels. I just wish people would tell me when theyve used the last of anything . You guessed it Easter Sunday and everywhere was shut , plus its a 10 mile round trip to any shop now and thats only the Coop.
So then I thought i'd do my spring list for jumble and car boot .
Steamer I dropped it and it died
Small Food Processor , finding it hard to knead stuff and rub in pastry and the munchkin isnt always available to help .
Vacuum packer and bag sealer , always wanted to try one
Small garden fork and shovel for the munchkin , he loves gardening but hes just a little to small for the adult size
Outdoor Toys for the munchkin and his little group of henchmen , maybe Swing Ball the old style metal version, the feeble plastic Argos ones are not a lot of good . Peddle cars in a bigger size and a small set of goalposts.
I do suppose books will feature on the list along with pretty china somewhere .
So now my day starts Mr BH is shouting that he needs me , lifes so thrilling , I thought id let him lie in for an hour as hes been up and down all night and neither of us has had much sleep , but i recognise the sound of grumpy male on the move , it will be a long day .
