It was quite a busy day yesterday and I'm glad that Beth and I cancelled swimming. I remembered to take photos of the quilt before wrapping it up and I fussed around in the kitchen for a while too. Foundation Stage reading was great fun, as usual, and the baby shower after school was very pleasant indeed. K seemed to like the quilt and the bag and people said nice things about it too, so it was worth the time and effort and now I know I can make a bigger quilt! The trouble with this sort of thing is that as soon as you have made one thing, you want to go bigger or more complicated. However, for a while I will avoid the big stuff and let Beth get on with hers while I stick with shopping bags which will make nice gifts for people, if they don't sell.

In the evening I wanted to watch the new Back In Time programme, Further Back in Time for Dinner, but it was on at nine and by then my eyes were drooping, so I shall watch what I missed on iPlayer at some point.
Today is swimming, then pottering around at home and then tuition. Not a terribly busy day but I have various culinary things I want to do which should keep me busy and out of trouble and I will need to do a tidy up before my pupil turns up.
I want to make a savoury pork mince mixture that is packed full of vegetables and lentils and I also want to make some bread dough to turn into rolls.
Today's menu is:
B: before swimming: apple
after swimming: porridge with pineapple and yogurt
L: carrot and lentil soup, ham sarnie, clementine
D: small jacket potato with cheese, baked beans
S: carrot batons
