A day at work.
Home to cook up loads of fruit and veg I got for free last night.
The flan has a bread base, rolled slices of bread out, butter both sides and then add a quiche type of filling before cooking it. Served with some oven chips, crispy cooked spinach and oyster mushrooms.
Sorted the tension on my sewing machine and made a start on quilting my cross stitch project.
An afternoon walk to a localish park with a duck pond to feed the ducks, swans and squirrels some left over bags of rocket and spinach as well as a few lettuce I got for free on Friday night.
Need two new frying pans. so went and bought them, check were suitable for our induction hob, came with a ten year guarantee , cam be used with metal utensils, but did not see the warning on the handles that says handles will become hot use oven gloves - an accident waiting to happen as we will forget - so going back.
Finished knitting a hat/scarf supposedly for Roo ( the nearly 2 yr old) but tried this on Spud ( nearly 5) and it is a tiny bit to short on her. DD2 wanted one for both of the girls so this will do Ziggy and will make another for Roo.
Spent the morning helping hubby to fit a heated towel rail in the bathroom.
Went out for a short cycle, 8.5 miles afterwards. Was getting towards dusk time I got back so did not stay out longer. Hard to see the pot holes and the slippy leaves as it starts to get dark.
I then did some more of my quilting. Just need to tie off all the ends now.
Pulled out the washing machine and dishwasher so hubby could run in the electrics for the bathroom heater. The bathroom is downstairs next to the kitchen.
Off out to meet Pat and go for a cycle ride. Love going with her as she shows me back routes and safer routes than I use and other interesting sights. We were watching the deer's at a local venison farm, wonder how many of them are for Christmas. Today we cycled just over 25 miles.
Had to laugh there was a wee boy of 2 with his mum and dog walking along the cycle path. We met up with them at a gate that needing opening as we were stopped. The wee boy loves to ring a bike bell......so I lifted him up so he could reach and his wee face lit up and he was over the moon. Glad I could make somebody's day a bit brighter.
Went out and walked the dog and then picked up a tin of varnish and some bits for the freezer.
What a lovely day.
Decided to go for a walk along the beach and take back the frying pans back at the same time. Had a nose round the charity shop.
Was much to nice to go home so headed down to the beach at Troon on the way home. A calm breezeless day.
This is the cross stitch quilt I finished making. It is a kit by Bucilla that I bought from a tv shopping channel about eleven years ago that got started and then stored. It has the design printed on and then once sewn it washes out. So this year seemed a good time to finish it. May need to finish off some of my other started projects as well.
I am really pleased with the end result. It is 4 ft by 4 ft and the picture really does not do it any justice.
