Wow - that half term went quickly didn't it? I must say, this week starts off with some trepidation as we find out tomorrow which secondary school we've got........so much for choice......I just hope it's the right one. Keep your fingers crossed. I'm stressed to the eye balls about it, whereas hubby is taking a calmer approach with the attitude of he'll worry about it if he needs to tomorrow. I don't think men have the same emotional attachment with these sorts of matters!
Anyway, last week saw my new role as taxi driver to the two boys - fetching them here, there and everywhere. I did manage to sneak in some gardening which felt wonderful. It was only 10 minutes picking up leaves and clearing twigs and cutting back a few plants, but it's surprising how much difference it makes just doing that, and it's great to see new life emerging.
I also made this watch pincushion
from the Jean Greenhowe's Bazaar Knits booklet - lots of quick and easy projects, it was quite satisfying completing something! My list of WIP's is ever growing, some of which I now don't fancy doing, em....
Lot's of baking was done, yum yum, including these Coconut and Lime Macaroons.
The recipe came from the BBC Good Food website which I'm a great fan of. The only problem I have when making these is that they always seem to crumble. They tasted anyway.
Anyway, have a good start to the week and I'll let you know how we get on with the secondary school choice later in the week, aagahhhh....
