A birthday meal of chicken with lemon thyme, pancetta, cream and vermouth.
Followed by quince sorbet. Made by defrosting frozen quince purée, adding sugar and lemon juice and freezing in an ice cream-maker. Probably a food safety crime.
A new knitting bag because I bloody love knitting.
Casting on a Carlisle scarf. Easy tv watching, wine drinking knitting.
More new yarn. Following all the excellent advice readers gave me for choosing a yarn that won't pill I chose Baby Cashmerino for this shawl. Please tell me it will be ok. Challenging chart-reading, undisturbed, focussed knitting.
Chocolate muffins with white chocolate chips. Consumed by the ever-hungry teenagers.
Purple sky on Thursday morning. A sign of stormy weather to come.
It's been a good week.
