Well the rain has arrived, its slinging it down, heaven knows where all this water is going to go..... I feel so sorry for the people who live on the Somerset Levels, they must be tearing their hair out in frustration. So much water still lying and so much still leaking from the sky.
We were late up, had our usual post haggis breakfast, there is always some left.... bacon, tomato, fried bread and haggis, I heat it up to sizzle in the microwave, so we will not have any lunch but I will cook supper early tonight
Another load of laundry in, it will have to go on the airer.......its sheet and duvet cover day tomorrow and that will have to dry inside as well.
I sewed the binding on the two place mats yesterday and started to quilt the ones for DD2, I need to find some thread to sew the binding down on out mats, looking at the thread I chose in the light its the wrong colour. If the worst comes to the worst I will have to use very light grey which is a neutral colour.
I sat and knitted some more dishcloths last night so I have several in stock now, at least I now know where I can get the cotton from, two shops in the town stock it. I have never come across Boyes before, they do carry a very varied stock including haberdashery. I bought a Sabitier kitchen knife from there, price on the packet £23 I paid £4.99. I will be going back to get a new cooks knife next month.
Fruit loaf on, I was going to do it yesterday but got side tracked, The white loaf I baked was fine so it was the flour that was off on the brown loaf not the yeast. I was so cross I had to throw away 2 bags of wholemeal flour. I re arranged the cupboard I keep the flour in, so its all on the same shelf and the newest flour is to the back, which was how it was in the cupboard in the apartment. When we moved in here everything was in such a stoshie things just got shoved in where they could, its only now I am coming to wipe out the cupboards and re arrange them I am coming across various bits and bobs. I need to spend a day on the contents of the cupboards and get them cleaned and sorted logically.
I also need to sort the freezer to do an audit so I know what meat I need for next month. Yesterdays liver made 6 portions enough for 3 meals so each portion of liver was 13p, I will add either bacon or sausage when we come to have it for supper.
Tonight, roast shoulder of lamb, potato's and parsnips, cauli and calebrese. We did not have a dessert last night, so the last banana cut up in chocolate mousse.
