Did I whizz round tidying up the mess that he created? Did I battle to maintain a modicum of organisation amid the increasingly overwhelming chaos.
No, I did not!
I spent an evening making myself a lovely new bag :-)
With a pattern from artsycraftybabe and spotty fabric, gifted to me by my lovely bloggy friend Kitty, that was a perfect match for some flowery stuff I bought ages ago....
....and a very contrasting lining of Kokeshi doll fabric, this bag has made me very very happy :-)
This is the first time I've followed a pattern to make a bag ( I usually make up my own) and I was really pleased with how easy it was. The bag is a good size too, with loads of room for all my doings, including my sock knitting and library book.
I bet even this lovely new book would fit in there...
I've seen this on other blogs for ages and tried to resist but it was no good - the promise of recipes for homemade butter and homemade curd cheese, not to mention fresh pasta and sourdough bread had me hooked! Of course, the fact that it's co-written by my hero Hugh F-W makes it essential reading as far as I'm concerned ;-)
Mind you, I may not follow his example on last night's River Cottage Summer. Somehow, slug soup or satay slug just doesn't do it for me!
Nope, I'll stick to something much safer...like bread made with flour from our local windmill....
...and planning the weekend's meals with a fantastic box of free organic fruit and veg from Abel & Cole.
I've been dithering over trying an organic veg box scheme for ages. So, when I was offered the chance to try one for free, in return for reviewing it's contents, I said a big 'Yes, please!'.
It arrived bright and early this morning and I was amazed how excited the children were about a box of veg!
So excited, in fact, that they took some of it to school in their packed lunches.
Cheese and salad wraps, using veg box lettuce, and a slice of yummy mini-watermelon.
We used more of the contents for tonight's dinner. Jersey new potatoes, broad beans and carrots were sampled and all were delicious.
Even Moogsdad was moved to comment on how tasty it was. Not bad for a man who only normally comments on how good a meal is if it involves oven chips and a fried egg ;-)
