Wednesday Musings......

Well I made a couple of gingerbread men today. I enjoy making these as they don't take too long. They are filled with a lovely gingerbread scent too. These two are destined for presents. I can't work out whether I prefer the dark or light colour what do you think?
I got this lovely bag in the post this morning. I'm not sure who its from, as we're doing an anonymous cloth bag swap on the forum at the moment. I've not even started mine yet.
Its really well made, lined and everything and it came with a packet of tomato seeds and inside the bag is a key fob with the little mans name on.

Drum Roll Please....................

TA DA!!!!! Its finished. Its taken a couple of days but I'm pleased with it. I'm amazed its finished, I start these things and I'm an ideas kinda gal, but to actually finish something is a miracle.
Suggestions for a name would be appreciated, I'm a bit stumped.


Hello everybody. Been a bit busy and stressy here so haven't blogged much lately. Basically our boiler died, which was expected, as hubby's been nursing it on for years, but still doesn't help the fact that we had to shell out a vast sum of money for a new boiler, pump, tank and some pipework. Trouble is its still not working properly, and the guys been out three times already. He's actually done a good job, the problem lies with the initial pipework when the house was built. Hubby thinks he knows how to remedy it fingers crossed, so is off to the diy store after work today.

I fancied doing a bit of baking this morning, so made a batch of Ginger Nut Biscuits and a courgette loaf. This should hopefully last a while and will do for hubby's lunchbox this week. Save buying cake and biscuits. I'm hoping to get away with not doing a big shop this week. I'm just going to pop out later to get a few essentials, bread, milk (wine) etc.

We seem to have cupboards full of tins and packets and a freezer full of stuff but nothing to eat, so I think we are going to be having a few unusual dinners this week to use it all up. Besides shopping has got so expensive lately we need to save the pennies.
I'm in the process of making a sheep at the moment. I'm hoping to have him finished today and will try and post a pic of him on here later. In the meantime here's a piccie of the little man with his favourite soft toy.
