I've had a busy old night, writing and editing. We took a break to watch the fabulous Utopia on channel 4, during which I got on with my tea cosy...
This came in a free kit from Clipper tea, along with packs of English
Breakfast and Earl Grey teabags. Looking good so far, but I need to get
it finished as I have a couple of gift knitting projects that I'd like
to start and finish before the end of February.
A short while ago, OH came to join me in our little office to design some photo gifts on his laptop.
Yes, spot the homemade wine... unfortunately, I don't believe it's any
good, so we'll have to have another go. OH makes a particularly good dry
cider - just from basic juice and champagne yeast! We got the basic
recipe from Downsizer.
We've had a really good week of budgeting and planning for the wedding.
We decided the shopping budget was a little tight for us, but I'm going
to handle the budget as it is for all groceries, toiletries, cleaning
stuff and cat food, and OH is in charge of stockpiling bargain meat for
the freezer. In fact, he went shopping today. He did quite well, within
budget and stuck to multipack deals and stickered bargains, but I
meanly gave him a very middly 6/10 for his efforts, because I'm a
stickler about what I consider to be a bargain. For example, 2 quail for
£3.45 - yes, cheaper than normal, but you could probably get better
value from something else. That said, I haven't tried quail before, so
I'm looking forward to that meal.
