Productive Sunday

As the title suggests, I've got some stuff done today!

My intention was to get in some sewing machine practice, crocheting, cooking and rearranging my bedroom... Well 3 out of 4 isn't bad!

Yesterday I did all the boring food shopping. But on my travels I may have accidentally popped in to the wool shop and bought 7 balls of various colours. Oops. However, it did mean I could get a bit further along with my blanket.

Today I went out with my Dad, went to Congleton, then Leek then home via Buxton. Lovely scenery on the drive.

When I came home, I was in the mood for doing, so I rearranged my bedroom. I used to do this quite a lot when I was younger - every year or so I would move all the furniture round. Well, I did the same in my lounge a couple of months ago, and had been plotting what to do in the boudoir, and finally got round to doing it. I must say, its rather lovely. I don't have a photo because I have started (but not finished) the decorating, so it doesn't look as good as it could... One day I'll get it done!

Then, I went on a bit of a cooking mission. I had a wee bit of spare pastry from hairy-face's pie, so thought I'd make a quiche, a proper one this time! So I did that. Then, seeing as I was on a roll, I also made lasagne, cranberry and chocolate chip cereal bars, apple and banana bread (it's good Hedgehog!) and shepherd's pie. I have taken a photo, but unfortunately some of the bread and quiche have already gone... Things don't last too long in our house! Still, it's all tasty-gorgeous, which is the main thing! And, it means for at least the next 2 nights when get in from work I don't have to do cooking! I can just eat eat eat! One of my favourite things to do!

All in all, rather pleased. Now it's time to get ready for work and ready for bed!

  1. You're right about the scenery! I grew up around the Roaches and I love it there!

    I used to rearrange my room a lot when I was young too! I can't do it anymore all my furniture has a place now but I do like to rearrange drawers and things still!

  2. hello again, thanks for your comment!

    My other half moved around a lot and has lived all over the place so he's not really native to anywhere!! He has lived around Birmingham for a good few years and has been in Wolves for the last 6. Most of the time he agrees with me about it not being nice, but he can get defensive about whether cities are better than rural areas, as he's not so much of a country bumpkin!

    I live in Leek now and dream of the day when Dave can move here, but it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon - he has to find a job near here first!

  3. Good work Pedge!! You've done more cooking today than I've done all week... I am a far more accomplished eater than cooker tho ;o)

    Glad that the apple and banana bread was a good 'un. I bet it you had it straight out of the oven while it was still warm... delish no doubt.

    I presume we'll see pics of the boudoir at some stage. I think that whole rearranging thing is in your genes. Isn't it such a home-making, comforting thing to do tho. x

    I'm still blown away by your culinary output.....

    The squares are coming on beautifully, I'm very proud of the progress that you're making. Just wait until we get our dream country crafting retreat....or even our old DIY country house we'll be able to sit together in front of the fire, with a story tape on and hook like a pair of good 'uns. Won't that be great. All we need is the lottery win!
