We were late to bed last night having watched the last night of the proms, so it was well after 11 before we crawled into bed.

Awake early, we needed to go to the village hall and put in the exhibits before going into Melton, DB has been wittering for weeks about a new watch, his best one wants a new battery and his old work watch was past redemption, so a cheapo from Argos, a new tippex white out and I needed a couple of heads for the dish washer mop.

We had our lunch and DB retired for his siesta, I flicked through the Argos catalogue for something to do.

Off to the village hall to see how our exhibits went. DB got 2 third prizes for photos, I got a second for the knitted blanket, but my favourite quilt was not placed, oh well I that's how the cookie crumbles sometimes. That's it for another year, no silverware to clean, there was no best in show. The quilt is now back on the bed.

Roast shoulder of English lamb for supper tonight. Roast spuds, green beans cabbage and roast courgette....made an apple and blackberry crumble for dessert.

For those of you who are interested the Christmas tutorial is up. I hope you can all understand the instructions, it was only when I wrote them down I realised how awkward it was, I actually need to undo a bit, my machine was not co operating yesterday for some reason and it chewed up a point, so I need to undo it and re sew it. I will put the borders on this week and photograph it again.
