Hi guys :D
Life has gone back to it's normal pace, busy one week and slow the next, which is what i like :)
Lots of things have been happening this week, but first, to my most exiting news...
Look what we have!
(The Bearded Wonders' amazingly hairy legs in the background)
A good friend who runs the clothing bank put a shout out on Facebook and turned up this electric cooker! I jumped around the living room and nearly made the Bearded Wonder jump out of his skin haha :D
Of course, i immediately cooked scones in celebration
and some bread :)
(i also finally remembered to buy a cooling rack: 99p from Home Bargains)
I've been pickling this week too.
I made sweet pickled cucumbers (perfect on a burger! Yummy!)
And some pickled eggs
What a pain to peel them all haha
These jars are amazing, they're a pickling vinegar and cost £1.52 which isn't too bad really. I'm going to be buying them so i can build up a good stock of the jars, which are so handy for other things too, then once i have enough i can make my own pickling spices, as the vinegar it comes with is just a wee bit too strong for me, but once the eggs were in the jar it overflowed enough to use the rest for the sweet pickled cucumbers. Two for the price of one :D
(my failed attempt at removing the label! You'd think they would make them easy to remove!)
I'm also joining in with Yarn Along
My blanket is making good progress and growing rather swiftly now :)i found two 150g balls of cream yarn in a charity shop for 99p so they shall keep me going for a while haha
i just need to find another ball or two of different green shades, then once this is finished my next project will be a blue and white blanket for the living room.
Our paint and decorating things have been ordered and shall hopefully be here towards the end of the week :) I'm so exited! I can't wait to get to started! I've got a whole pinterest board dedicated to the project with various blue shades and decor ideas for inspiration
