Quick chat about Pilgrims choice Lighter cheese- I never buy reduced fat items because I would rather have a little less of something tasty than more of something without flavour. I bought this product because it was on offer in Tesco and only noticed it was lighter cheese when I was throwing the packet in […]
My Firework Scarf Yesterday I sorted out my wardrobe ready for the cooler weather – I didn’t realise I had so many scarves! I made this one last year to cheer up a plain black cord coat. The black yarn is pure wool double knit I had in my stash. The orange novelty yarn was […]
Autumn is the time my needles always start clicking at double the speed of sound! At the moment I am having to slow down as I have hurt my right hand. I was pulling out a weed when a rose thorn stuck into the back of my hand (I had just taken off my gloves!). […]

This is a display of my Advent envelopes for adults on a photograph display stand. I am quite pleased with this and I am going to leave them like this to cheer up the autumn. I have made a second set of envelopes which I will show you tomorrow!

The ultimate comfort food has to be a soft boiled egg and soldiers. I went to the Bank first this this morning to pay a credit card bill half the size of the national debt. Well it’s paid now (Hooray!) but when I arrived home I needed a nursery meal (it being too early for […]
I have never had an Advent CalendarDuring a conversation with my other half we found out that we had never had an Advent Calendar. Are they a “new ” thing? Or an Americanism we have adopted? We never made them at school nor had we ever heard of them. Mind you we never celebrated Halloween either! […]
