A very heavy overnight frost, it did not really ease until after lunch, it was blooming cold outside. The sky is blue and the sun shining, but its still cold.
Well I have appliqued the pieces onto the playmat, thats all I have done, the wretched thread kept breaking, in the end I undid it and used cotton. There were times it came very close to going out of the window. Its layered up ready to quilt, but it can wait till another day. I also put another patch on my ironing board, ironed and aired yesterdays bed linen.
Think we might go to Melton tomorrow, I am out of fruit and mustard, DB has been having mustard sauce quite a bit lately.
I have just finished reading a book about a families search for survivors of the Holocaust, along with the other book I read about survivors of the camps in Japan during the second world war. Although fiction, they are both based on fact, very difficult reading in places. I found them a very compelling read.
Last night was a good night on TV for a change, we have been watching The Halcyon. Its the last part next week, intriguing trying to work out what is going to happen and if there will be another series. We also watched Island Parish based on Anguilla. They are still showing Nigel Farrell as the idea behind the series.....he has been dead for a number of years. We knew him when we lived in Hampshire, his pal Nippi had the local post office and general store in Bentley. At that time he had a series based on life in the village.
Sausage, mash and baked beans tonight, the remains of the rhubarb sponge for dessert.
