Good morning. I'm up at normal (for me) time after a long night's sleep. I was so weary yesterday evening, I went up well before eight, expecting I'd be wide awake by two but I wasn't! I feel a lot better for it too. Happy!
Yesterday was lovely with Beth round to stitch and natter. In between sewing and chatting I made two loaves of wholemeal and the spiced cranberry jelly which is now in two largish jars. It didn't come out totally smooth, presumably because I had used a fairly coarse muslin instead of that elusive jelly bag, but it's delicious, really scrummy. The spices were cinnamon stick, cloves and star anise and I added a good slug of port too.
Beth and I started some owls, made a few decisions and just got on with stuff.
As I dropped off one of the loaves at school for my 'customer', on the way home I noticed that a neighbour's wall was looking rather lovely so I took a few photos.
Today I have a downstairs to clean, pigs in blankets and sausage rolls to make, tuition planning to do and one tuition session. I have this feeling at the back of my mind that there's somethings else as well but I daresay it will come to me later if I stop trying to remember now.
Anyway, remember or not, that is enough to keep me out of trouble and 'gainfully employed' for the day!
B: beans on toast
L: I have to finish last year's turkey before this year's needs saving, so turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce (there's a bit that didn't fit in the jar) followed by an orange.
D: sausages, broad beans, onion gravy, maybe some spuds, yogurt and fruit
Enjoy the day and may it go well for you.
