After that it was over to the garden centre for some bags of stuff, a sprayer thing, some more tomato food and some Bordeaux mixture of my own. Then home, where I sorted a few things out, including finish off the plum jam, before going over to Lesley's for cake and bubbly to celebrate her husband's 6oth birthday! By the time I got home the aches were beginning to bite hard so I rested and relaxed (and went to sleep)! And that was it! End of the day!
So today is flapjack day. I've found the recipe I want to use which is in a wonderful old Good Housekeeping Cookery Compendium which was given to me (old) for a wedding present. There's a story behind it, of course. The lady who owned it was very ill and my mum regularly took the lady's husband to the hospital so he could visit her. When she died, he gave me the Good Housekeeping book as a thank you wedding present, which was so very kind and so very useful. I used it a lot in those early days of marriage before Delia's cookery course took over: not so much now but I still dig it out from time to time and today is one of those times. It's a very simple recipe: marg (it will be butter), sugar, syrup, oats and a pinch of salt - and I will add a squeeze of lemon juice too.
Apart from that, I suspect I will be snoozing on and off, but that's OK. After all, it's the weekend! Yay!
