Heidi learning keyboard skills.

Hello. It's goodbye summer and hello autumn here today. Damp and drizzly all day, now chucking it down with rain. Blow that for a game of soldiers, I'm not going out for a walk today, no sireeee. Twas a bit quiet at Crafty Club this morning, just the two of us, made a change because I could actually get a word in edgeways instead of battling against the banter going backwards and forwards across the table. Last night I machined a few pieces of fabric together to make a book cover to take with me. I added some cross stitch to it. 
This afternoon I made some more shopping bags, now I have 14 to sell on the cat stall next month. Owain the Welsh weather man kept me company, he is now a presenter on BBC Radio York, and his lively chat keeps me entertained.
My lunch today was a big fat sandwich. I am really getting into them now, and they are getting fatter and fatter as I stuff more filling into them. For dinner tonight I made a pan of this whatever you like to call it. A chopped onion, three mushrooms, handful of frozen peas, and broad beans, two pieces of frozen spinach, and some Quorn mince. It's sort of mild curryish with turmeric and vegetable granules for seasoning. Instead of water I gave it a slosh of cranberry juice. Served on a bed of tagliatelle. There is enough for two more meals which I will eat tomorrow and the next day. It's very tasty, and filling.  

Now I am being interrupted, Heidi's nose is two inches away from this keyboard, she is demanding my attention. I'm not going to get much more done tonight so I might as well give up. Perhaps I can get her to write the blog posts in future.


Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
Toodle pip.

  1. It's been a wet day here as well Ilona, I kept busy making a quilt for the Project Linus charity I support. I really wanted to be in the garden so maybe tomorriw will be better.
    Love your bags I bet they will sell quickly.
    By the way I love your pink jacket, I live bright colours.

  4. Your photo of Heidi reminded me of our cat Sid, he used to lie across the front of the keyboard, and when my husband would try to type, Sid would bat at his fingers...then husband would laugh, and eventually give up. Hopefully Heidi has more to say and will start typing about her life as a princess. ;)

I saw a dog on TV once,a real cutie who played the piano when his humans were out and he sang whilst doing so .Heidi looks clever too .I don't have much of an appetite when it's hot, but your meal has made me feel hungry.Been to usual yoga class.Rain here too -lots of wet dogs about when I went out afterwards and saw a young family sitting under an tree enjoying their picnic x

  10. Wet day here as well. Storms overnight and more on the way. We had no power for a big portion of today. It's amazing how many times you can flip a switch forgetting the power is off. I sure was happy when it was let there be light. ha. My sons pup use to do the same thing. When he'd had enough of me being on the computer he would hop on the sofa and lay across my hands. Happy week ahead!

    1. I have dogs -I've never had a cat but I've cared for my uncles.My darling Prince,whenever I had a phone call from my Italian Godmother ,he would grab my leg ,dig his claws in and no way stop.He was such a lovely dog usually and I daren't tell her.Once when I was arranging my mothers funeral and a Holy man was visiting he was the same.They insist on attention don't they x
