Thursday - Nice bright day

and not too cold although there is quite a breeze.

I spent an hour  in the garden this morning. I had 3 plants I wanted to get in, they were looking a bit the worse for wear.

I did not sleep too well, ideas buzzing round. I was trying to think of a block that was oblong rather than square for table mats, hmmmm delectable mountains came into mind. I am going to have a bash at one and see how it comes out. I am planning a little experiment with the block, will see if it works out.

This was the first experimental block I made, looks good.

So I made another one using different fabric, yes, I like this one.

The microwave arrived just after 8am, two nice chaps, took the old one and unpacked the new one and put it on the work surface, I have used it a couple of times. Its different to the old one, so I am having to refer to the book. Its very quiet compared to the old one. Watch this space.

My clapped out old microwave.

The brand spanking new one, its on remote control to switch on and cook the gratin for supper, will see how it performs. It is slightly small in width but higher up, the vents are on the top at the back and positioned so the heat comes forward, not as the old one did vented from either side.

DB was also in the garden this morning tidying at the back of the shed and putting some of the bigger pots there. I also emptied a bag of compost into the dustbin in the sentry box, so one down 2 to go. he found the large pot I have earmarked for a water feature, I am not sure if I am going to try and find a solar fountain for it or put water lilies in.......

Cauli and broc gratin with jacket spuds and roast tomato's for supper.
