Good morning, everyone. I'm at mum and dad's today, having travelled up yesterday afternoon. It was an easy journey for once, with only one hold up for road repairs and early enough that the lowering sun didn't cause any visibility problems.
I took Emily (the knitted doll) with me as mum saw me making her and was interersted and she loved the finished thing, so I will leave her (Emily) here. I quite fancy making another one - it was interesting work.
Today I will be taking down all the decorations for mum and dad. I'm sad about that as it does brighten up the room but tomorrow is twelfth night so it's time. Apart from that it's the usual meal making, washing, ironing, etc. I've brought up the turkey stock and bits off the carcass which I had frozen after Christmas as they both love a turkey stew. There will be enough to make several portions to freeze as well which will be very welcome.
Well, I had better get going. Mum doesn't wake for a while yet but there's stuff to do and a stew to prepare which involves peeling loadsa root veg (delicious) before a nice, slow simmer.
Have a great Saturday.
