Also the penultimate day of the summer holiday. Where has the time gone? It seems no time at all since I spent that first Saturday packing and generally sorting things out for the drive down to Somerset.
Yesterday, DD brought round a big bag of damsons for me. At the moment I'm not sure what I'll do with them - might make a few pots of jam, but the idea of making some damson gin is very appealing too and maybe using them for flapjack fillings or puree in yogurt. I will have to have a think. So in the meanwhile I think I will 'boil the divil out of them' (to quote DD), push the resulting gloop through a colander to get rid of the stones and then freeze it.
The other think I want to do is make another pile of flapjacks to take into school on Wednesday for the staff meeting - just cut into little squares, they might help to lighten the load a trifle!
So today is . . .
wee bit of shopping
kitten worshipping - er, I mean visiting DD and DG
ironing (has to be done, unfortunately)
Any chance I might get it all done, I wonder?
Meals are all saved stuff, so I don't have to think too hard about that. More of that quiche (yum) for lunch with a salad and some slow roasted lamb for dinner.
Should be a good day!
