On Chris's blog last week she showed homemade cakes for DH's birthday...yummy! One of them was a beetroot cake. A recipe was found here and yesterday afternoon i made this one with our own beetroot. There is only a bit left, a friend had a piece last night then came back this morning for a 2nd piece and the family also love it. Chris says it's a healthy option, 1 of your 5 a day - does that mean i could have 5 pieces a day LOL
I had a pressie yesterday. Amy (DD) came home from her shift on the Customer Service Desk at Tesco with some great news. She has been selected to complete the NVQ in retail for her store together with 3 others. As a celebration she treated me to the latest Cath Kidston designer bag they are stocking to help you to recylce and use your own bags. My daughter sure knows how to bring a smile to my face.
This blog seems to be missing the stitching plot recently and i bet you all think i'm turning into Barbara Good of The Good Life. We are not quite as bad as they are, but we are making efforts to save money and produce as much of our own food as we can and save it for over the winter months. I am doing craft stuff, although what i am doing is for Christmas secret stuff or exchanges so i cant show you. I did finish off a knitted Christmas gift this morning. I've also been reading my book which cuts into free time as well, it's a mammoth size over 1,000 pages and i'm not a fast reader. Karen and I were reading Child of the Phoenix together as she is a Barbara Erskine fan too but she's finished hers so i need to read more and PC less i think this week.
for stopping by, i do appreciate your visits.
