Can't seem to get my backside into gear today. I blame Ken Follett. I'm a third of the way through his book, 'Pillars of the Earth', and all I want to do this afternoon is lie on the sofa reading some more. It's very compelling.
I have managed to clean the kitchen and put dinner in the slow cooker - inbetween reading. Dinner is soup made from a half price ham shank I bought and I'll stick some dumplings in later. That knocked down the carrot mountain a little!
I had my boyfriend and son believing that the dog food I'd made was actually our dinner for that night - liver casserole. Both of them seemed a bit depressed at the thought of eating it- Iain even went so far as to say it looked like vomit - "Look. It's even got carrots in it!". Yes dear, everything has carrots in it lately!
I borrowed 'Kirstie's Home Made Home' from the library the other day and I'm really taken with the idea of making a rag rug. It'll be a while before I start though as I need to collect some rags first. There wasn't enough in the book to make me want to buy it, but still a nice read. I'll need to make a list of all my projects as there's so much I want to do. I need to learn patience!
