So for the last few weeks I have been writing down what I intend to get done as I find for me this works, if it has to be crossed off then I will do it. I printed off some free weekly planner sheets and wrote down things I would be disappointed if I did not do. This has worked but time being what it is, I was overly optimistic as to how much you can fit in at the end of a working day therefore there hasn't been much time left.
So as well as trying new recipes I had wrote down guitar every day, Spanish, Dutch, dog walk (which can be 45-60 minutes) reading (fiction &non fiction) and TV usually after 9.30. Well when you consider we don't usually finish our meal until about 6.45 that is a lot to cram in. Reading I fit in anywhere and bit before bed, any sewing is often done at the end of the week.
I have decided to give myself a break, I will still make the lists but maybe alternate the days for some things. I also have beginners Italian starting next Monday with Future Learn so I need space for that!
Anyway here is a little catch up, after the cheese cake went down well last week I made a GF vegan banana chocolate loaf from the book Vegan and Gluten-Free Baking, that I shared a few weeks ago. This one is fabulous again! If you have not got this book you have to try and get a copy everything just comes out wonderful. I have only one, dark, evening photo as it came out of the oven so here it is...
I have taken a picture of the recipe, I only used two bananas in mine and it was enough.
Yesterday I had all sorts planned for my day then my mum turned up just before lunch and stayed all afternoon so that changed things a bit. I was going to visit at that end of the day and we had agreed on that but she decided to change her mind. I had only just got back form the shops so she nearly had a wasted trip! Anyway we had a walk down to the charity shop and she got a Regata fleece which she was very pleased with and I spotted this lovely single duvet set for the fabric. If I had a guest room or girls it would definitely be going on a bed but I don't, so fabric it is.
