Tonight I made some stained glass biscuits for Rosie (a birthday treat). It wasn't my most successful baking venture - only about 50% of them made it off the baking tray in one piece and the recipe was lacking in flavour (not enough ginger, not enough orange, not enough sugar), but they look pretty. Nicely coloured windows.

I also got the glass piece back that I assembled on White night. Not bad at all for a bit of late night crafting. I like the shapes.

In other news, thanks to Lyzi & Deborah for their kind posts about my blog.

A successful biscuit batch to mark many occasions.
Let's hope the result today is just as favourable.
I have a bet to win.

baking with mouse

Friday baking and blog updating. I'm going to try and illustrate the shopping lists more regularly from now on.

Also on the internet, Hannah and Alan have a lovely new blog on the go (A year in Eggs) & Yumi has finally gone public with her toilet rating scheme.

one month

one month

One month later, and with 28 days worth of knitting, my diary is complete.
As you can see, some days were big knitting days and some days not so much. But it was a nice easy project to do, with not too much to think about, and now my neck is very warm.

mouse & poppy

I ate a lot of cheese this weekend, and made some very pink rose flavoured ice cream. It was a bit overpowering.

I also got this nice little mouse from the market. He's handy for holding things.

I really wanted to cycle to Lewes tonight for the fireworks, but instead I fear I'm going to have to stay in with my handkerchief and a blanket.

under the weather


Cream of tomato soup to warm my insides.
This blog is 4 years old today. A long time...

bed rest

bed rest

My laptop is getting some time off as I have a new computer to play with in the office.
This means I get to walk to work and back with a spring in my step.
I could even skip.

red bag

I got a new bag from the flea market.
It has 7 different pockets.
It's been taking me a very long time to find my keys.

white night
november pigeons

I can't believe it's November already. I'm not at all ready to be walking home from work in what feels like the middle of the night.

Last year I think this month was one of the worst in history so I'm hoping for a big improvement this time. Today started well when I spied a couple of pigeons perched in the sun outside my window.

The weekend was also a winner. We hosted another pumpkin carving evening and spent saturday exploring the events at White Night.

Let's keep this up please!
