Hello there! My this has been a short week! I think the fact that I was away visiting friends last weekend has thrown me out of sync! It was lovely to catch up with a very very dear friend of mine. She doesn’t read my blog though, this dear friend of mine. Her words were, ‘Don’t you just write about Daz or something and then get a year’s free supply of washing powder?’ No – to be honest my blog isn’t really like that! However, Daz, if you’re reading – I would be totally up for that! With two young kids that’s gotta be worth about a million pounds! Otherwise, here’s this week’s Little Loves:
I have finished reading Lee Child’s, Personal. Part of the Jack Reacher series, it pretty much follows a similar pattern to all the others, most of which I have also read. This one was a little different in that a large proportion of it was set in England. It was interesting to read the provisions the author had put in place to explain landmarks etc to a largely American readership. And I definitely didn’t suspect the ending at all!
Every week, I hear a new song on the radio, and think, I really like that! I’ll use that for this week’s Little Loves. By the time I sit down to write the memory is completely gone! However since Aaron is really starting to pick up with his words and language now, I’ll give you another one of his delights! He had asked for something, and I had responded, ‘Just wait a wee minute.’ I suspect I may use that phrase a little too often as he repeated to me, ‘Minute, minute, minute.’ Not exactly what you want your toddlers 10th word to be, but I was impressed by the early use of attitude!
I am quite amused by the fact that over the last two weeks we have been steadily losing T.V. channels. We suspect an aerial problem! I think we are down to BBC1, BBC2 and CBBC. Mr C’s not quite so impressed! However, this resulted in us watching a programme about the Big Bang and creation of the Universe. I actually find these kinds of programme interesting, and very humbling when reminded of our own insignificance in the scheme of things. Anyway, the gist of the programme was the scientists still aren’t sure what happened.
Oh, I have been crafty in the kitchen this week, and I have been preparing some Easter treats. Here’s a sneak preview, and I will write up a blog post soon!
I have no pictures, but I have been wearing dresses! Lots and lots of dresses! In a quest to find one which is suitable for me to wear as a Bridesmaid to my dear, aforementioned, friend’s wedding! Bless her, she didn’t pick her Bridesmaid’s on their ability to look good in anything, but we found one that is just perfect! I’m excited…
It’s been feeling a little like the house that Spring forgot here. Everyone else has been posting about sunshine and daffodils, while I’ve had rain and little green shoots! And then I saw my rhubarb! This poor rhubarb plant came to me last year in pretty bad shape, but I managed to nurture it into a wonderful plant, and even harvested some fruit into the freezer – I thought it would be nice at Christmas. Then the freezer broke, and I had to throw it out. Then the stone wall collapsed on top of the plant, pretty much demolishing it. I placed some rocks around the stubs that remained, to protect it from the frost, and what d’ya know – it’s only come back from the doomed! Rhubarb crumble – this year you will be mine!
