Good morning. I've just been out to the freezer and it's raining yet again. I know we needed rain but I hate to think of the problems it is causing in other parts of the country.
Yesterday was a very quiet day. I didn't get out to put in my prescription so must do that today. However, I did tidy my pottery bag which had got itself into a mess and then I got out the air drying clay and had a play. This is what I ended up with.
They're now sitting on a covered chopping board to dry before I paint and varnish them and, hopefully, put them on my bedroom Christmas tree.
It was a different clay to handle, not as easy as white clay in some ways but easier in others and it will be interesting to see the differences in the end products.
I finished off the mince pie seller mouse and very cute she is too. I'll take some photos and post them another time.
In the evening I decided I ought to deal with the ready made (and rolled) sweet pastry I bought but didn't actually want to make the mince pies themselves as they would be far too available to eat so I had a brainwave. I cut out the bases and the tops, carefully layered them on an oven tray with easyleave between and now they are in the freezer. So I can take out however many bases and tops as I need, give them fifteen minutes or so to thaw, make the mince pies and bake them.
I hope it's a brainwave, anyway. Fingers crossed
Has anyone been watching the Kirsty Whatshername Home Made Christmas programmes. I think they're repeats but they appeal to me and I've set the box to record them.
Today, being Wednesday, is personal training day. I missed last week so today will be a bit heavy but not to worry. Apart from that, it's another not-a-lot day so I will blitz the housework and do some ironing before I sit down with the knitting. Also, I need to make sure the things I want to take to Bury St Edmunds are washed and ironed and ready to pack.
Perhaps it's not such a nothing day after all. xx
