And above is a silly photo where I do NOT look my usual smiley happy self?! BUT it is a TAH DAH, because you see I have had that cowl pattern PUBLISHED! Yes really HONEST, it's in issue 46 of INSIDE CROCHET, available to buy TODAY! Or at the moment, THIS MONTH anyway.
Being a relatively lovely day and JJ popping home between a job at 6 am and a job at 8 pm Saturday 5th October we went to Marlow: feeding the geese and walking the dogs:
She eats all she can reach and stands on her hind legs , frint feet on flower pots to reach and pick them herself. Such a fruit loving hound!
The sorry for the look, the visuals here, Umph doesn;t look much! But the Broccoli soup from Nigella's Express cook book was made again and was fabulously DELICIOUS!
IT PERKED ME UP AND FED ME WELL for at least 3 days!
Then that weekend or the one before, one starts to forget, I made two, yes TWO banana loaves from a WW cookbook, as we had gathered 8 very black looking sorry state bananas in our fruit bowl.
WEIGHT WATCHERS fast and fabulous book: Banana Loaf I think or try
I chose Mary Berry because Miss E is a fan....
But make sure the bananas are over ripe and you add cinnamon, mixed spice , lime juice and a touch of vanilla? Oh yes and I use BROWN sugar! Demerara or dark bown muscavado?
Also on that sunny weekend in September we went CYCLING! Late afternoon, we didn;t leave till after 4pm as the evenings were still light then.
SCARY! Now I recount a hairdresser visit as worse than a dentist so you can imagine?
And I took a photo because it only EVER looks this good on the day SHE does it?
And ending with a little forward planning: I have started to write a few Christmas Decoration patterns:
Here's me painting Hobbycraft polystyrene balls. With red cadmium paint.
