Those Little Niggles......
We all have those little niggley jobs, that just seem to sit in the background and niggle you.
Well today I had a day of getting rid of those niggles,
Oiling the squeaky wheel on the wheel barrow
Going down the field to collect the bright green poultry feeder that blew there a few weeks ago in the wind.
Sorting out the shoe rack in the porch.
Finding a basket for the kindling
And so the list went on.
I was also trying to get organised for the week end
Martins brother and partner are arriving tonight, they are here to help with some work over the week end
Fingers crossed weather permitting it will be a new roof on the utility room, I will no longer be paddling in rain water,
I am out doing a craft fair tomorrow, so I needed to organise food for the workers
Raiding the freezer I took out Mackerel for my dinner, its a yellow label I bought a few weeks ago
One of our own smoked ham shanks, that has now been made into a big pot of soup for there lunch
I made a loaf of bread to go with it, a rustic loaf this time.
Making more space in the freezer I pulled out pancakes they can have for breakfast with bacon and maple syrup, A joint of lamb for dinner tomorrow evening, we will have some kale from the garden with it, I also pulled out the part used pots of humus that were put in there the other week
Courgette cake that was made back in summer and some pitta bread
So that's the week end food sorted out.
This evening I went to the second Clay Pottery session
This time we were making Tiles, unfortunately Bovey Belle couldn't make it she will explain why I am sure on her blog.
I managed to do 6 tiles, using three techniques
I have to wait a couple of weeks to see the full effects when they are fired.
leaving the class this evening, winter had arrived it was snowing, only lightly, and the temperature had dropped to 2c the fire was laid at home ready for me to put a match to, and it was toasty warm with the rayburn that was stoked up before leaving.
