Some colourful bits and bobs from my weekend. Above, my garden looking green and leafy in the sun.
A burnished roast chicken. Best meal in the world. This was the last thing from my Riverford meat box and very delicious it was too. Not finished yet though. Another meal will be made from the leftovers tonight and a big bowlful of stock has already been made. I also saved the golden fat for frying croutons to have with our soup last night.
My French folder. Homework was to read a newspaper article and be ready to talk about it in the lesson this evening. Je suis prête ;o)
My daughter was off to a 'Shopping Spree' birthday party yesterday and what fun she had. She chose the card with the sweets on to give to her friend.
This little corner of my garden is where my herbs grow just by the back door. I have currant bushes and a crab apple tree there too.
My elder son paints Warhammer figures. They are tiny but he paints them with such detail and precision. The paints have names like vomit, bleached bone, red gore and chaos black. Nice.
I squeezed in a spot of crochet between watching football matches (sorry, I'm a bit of a World Cup bore at the moment). I'm still hooking away at my blue ripple blanket.
The napkin drawer. Much in demand by my two youngest who both have new clothes to protect from gravy spills.
Colourful teabreak .
