Delia and other domestic ideas
I woke today to another snowy day and decided the only cure for it was breakfast
in bed with the morning papers, followed by a long walk with the dogs..Have to
say the former was considerably more enjoyable than the latter. Attempting to
walk two strong excitable dogs on ice and snow resulted in more manouvers than a
contestant on Dancing on Ice.
On the plus side, though, spending more time
than usual confined indoors has brought out my inner domestic goddess, (never
thought I'd hear myself say that!)...I now have a (almost) gleaming house, and a
kitchen full of my attempts at baking...Scones, pastries, cakes, you name it,
I've made it!...Have to admit to a disaster with a panna cotta though, the
finished item bore more than a passing resemblance to a breast implant, too much
gelatin I think! (maybe I can patent it)!?
You get the idea......well sort of......
I did manage to get out of snow boots and that eskimo look for a moment .....although not for long brrrrr
Well , if I can get the car out today I'm doing a spot of antique hunting ( a favourite pastime) ,,,
And talking of Blasts from the Past .....and bringing back memories of glorious sunshine ( if you can remember such days) ...
Time to go, think I can smell
