A couple of garden happies . . .
I am going to look out for a green tomato and apple chutney recipe, hopefully well spiced. I probably already have one in the appropriate folder - I know Sue sent me a good one but I'm not sure that features apples as well and green tomatoes.
Anyway - good morning, everyone. I'm so behind things this morning having slept until past seven and then pottering about. After a gloriously warm and sunny day yesterday, today is dull and damp and a bit chilly again. Oh, well, at least yesterday was gorgeous!
Suzanne set off back home round the M25 yesterday but the journey wasn't great. What neither of us had remembered was that there was a rail strike starting and the M25 was very, very busy. She got home eventually and, like me, set off to stock up again.
I went to Sainsbury's where I found pretty much everything I wanted except for some pak choi; Suzanne had brought some on holiday and I, who has never knowingly eaten any, really liked it. I stopped off at Morrisons on the way back and they had some there.
The first load of washing had done by the time I got home so I hung that out, put in the next load and started putting the food, etc, away. Then I sat down, got out my knitting and started catching up on all the telly and YouTube stuff. Would you believe we didn't turn on the TV once all week?
And then I remembered Elmer. You must know of Elmer the Elephant. The books were a great favourite in my classrooms. So I'm doing this and I'm going to hunt out either a cheap set of Elmer books or the first one in the set, put them together and that's Christmas sorted. I know beyond any doubt that books will be treasured and valued in that family.
