Happy Monday everyone!
How have your weekends been? Usually I don’t think much of the weekend as Vince works through it, our weekend is Tuesday & Wednesday. This weekend was better though as we had some family visit on Saturday in the form of my mum and her partner. Which was lovely company for me and it meant Emma had more people to climb on and poke in the face which is always a bonus in her opinion :). Not to mention that nanny usually brings treats!
Anyway, on to this week….
The Weather ::
It has been so foggy today! I mean really really foggy. It is finally lifting but it’s 4.30pm already. On the plus side it seems to have kept the temperature up, so it’s been a mild 16°C (60F) today.
On my reading pile ::
I have started reading The Hobbit again but it is taking me ever such a long time as I just don’t seem to set aside reading time these days. Thats partly why I’ve chosen The Hobbit, I know it’s a great book and I’ve read it 3 or 4 times before anyway so it’s an easy book for me pick up and put down.
On my TV ::
This week I’ll be watching…
On the menu this week ::
Monday – Hazelnut Parsnip Soup (or not, can’t decide!)
Tuesday – Roasted Monkfish & Crushed Potatoes
Wednesday – Black Bean Burgers
Thursday – Frittata
Friday – Veggie Bean Curry
Saturday – Eating Out (My cousins wedding!)

On my to do list this week ::
Quite a few sewing jobs I’d like to get done.
Should also get around to washing the kitchen & bathroom floors and cleaning the inside of the oven.
Tidying up the dining room.. again…
Rearranging our clothes into our new dressing table.
What I am sewing, crocheting or creating ::
I have sooo many projects on the go at the same time… again!!! I have bunting cut out waiting to be sewn for Emma’s birthday, different bunting waiting to be sewn together to brighten up my kitchen and the pieces for a little puffe/foot stool for Emma’s room need to be sewn together and filled. I also now have the fabrics to make our christmas stockings this year which I can’t wait to get on with.
In my crochet basket I have a half completed hot water bottle cover and some little christmas tree decorations I’m experimenting with.
So not much going on really…..
Looking around the house ::
Vince is at work. Emma is having an afternoon nap, woohoo! I can see a misty sun starting to set on the horizon through my front window. The washing machine is loaded ready to be switched on tonight. I need to pick up Emma’s toys and put them back in her box.. so she can get them out again in half hour or so… perhaps I won’t just yet! I ought to go and put together her dinner now while I have the chance I guess.
