Project 365 7th -13th April

Sunday 7th

I joined in with the sweep at work for the grand national, as I have for the last ten years, and normally my horse is either a non runner or falls at the first fence. But by some miracle it win this time. The winnings bought my internet dongle.

Monday 8th

This was part of our bug hunt that I blogged about here. This is Bob with his magnifying glass.

Tuesday 9th
I was looking for something slightly different for tea and made Leek and potatoes in a cheese sauce topped with bacon. Have used leeks in two different seasonal recipes, you can read about them here.

Wednesday 10th

I visit an elderly friend on a Wednesday, and this along with half a dozen similar adorn her hall. They are made from shells.

Thursday 11th

I have started doing double shifts at work at the weekend, and need something to do in the two hour break, and so I bought myself a notebook and dongle so I can write up posts like this and pass the time quicker.

Friday 12th

Went down to visit my friend in the cottage after tea, and could have quite cheerfully fell asleep in front of this nice coal fire.

Saturday 13th

Did a baking on Friday evening, made some chocolate cakes with a munchie in the middle of each.
recipe can be found here.
