It has been great as the weather has been mainly warm and sunny, I have had time in the greenhouse and my husband has got a few jobs done, including clearing out his mother's garden shed. This was a big job and good one to get out of the way, in fact he has gone off just now to take more items to the tip. It also brought a few surprises like boxes of nails, screws and hinges that they didn't want but which will of course come in handy for future projects.
We also chose to go out for lunch twice this week, as a nice change and seeing as we have not gone away. A walk down to the nearest pub with youngest son for lunch one day and an Italian meal on our own on Thursday. I also managed a catch up with friends which is always good so overall a nice week at home.
My sewing has seen my odd job pile of family repairs disappear and I completed my Burda Young Jacket which is for a Minerva crafts post. I will show a quick peek and then link to the rest of the post when it appears on there.
Unless of course you build a capsule wardrobe around a few pieces but I can't get my head around that. I like variety and feel I would be a bit constrained doing that. It may be something to try for a short period I know Carolyn does this on her blog sometimes. She picks a selection of her handmade items and wears only those for a fixed number of days. So perhaps that is the way to do that rather than saying forever and getting bored with your options.
While we were out having one of our lunches a quick peek in the charity shops was had and we came home with a nice summer shirt for my husband for £4 and a dress for me from the £1 rail! Both too good to miss of course.
There has been lots of cooking and a few of my veg leaves made it into a curry yesterday, just for me as the rest of the family had fish.
Just a few as it was curry for one, along with a few veg from the freezer and some chickpeas.
I forgot to photograph the end result which also included a very tasty tomato risotto which everyone ate so in light of this I have decided to set myself the challenge to write a post everyday for the rest of this month. I decided this today as I don't know why but when I do more, I do more if you get my meaning. So as an exercise in self discipline I am going to do it, and remember to take more photographs of recipes, walks, and just general stuff. A friend of mine said I need to get on it as she waits for my posts ha! She may be bored of me by the end of the month.
Anyway it doesn't mean I will keep this up forever but it may help me establish a better pattern and of course I enjoy looking back on things in this form. It would be good to know if any kind of posts are preferred over the coming month and of course I always love to read your comments
