Its been over a week since my last post - I've been fairly busy but with nothing very interesting to report, but I thought I'd better show my face, so you didn't think I'd gone off in a sulk since my miserable last post! Thanks for all your sympathy and encouragement. I know it will all be worth it one day but that one day seems a long way off sometimes!
My first harvest of courgettes this year; some of them wouldn't win any beauty contests though!
We had a lovely lunch - Mr D Snr had made a delicious home-made plum sauce to go with duck breast. For dessert we had Scandinavian Iced Berries - oh my goodness it was yummy and such an easy recipe! The hot sauce partially defrosts the frozen berries and the frozen berries cool the hot sauce. Will definitely be copying that one! Plus it almost certainly constitutes at least one of your five-a-day.
I have also been knitting some Innocent Smoothie Hats. We are doing them at Knit Club this week so I thought I'd give the pattern a try in advance - the next thing I knew I had done four!
Mr D is off to Yeovilton Air Day on Saturday with our brother-in-law and I am going to meet him at my sister's for tea afterwards. Then it's back up here to restore a bit of order (ie a floor!) to the kitchen which will be a relief.
Off to bed now with a cup of hot Ribena - good night! xx
