By contrast in this house we are still suffering a little from the lurgy - and the walk to the bottom of the garden at 7pm to make wirework jewellery seemed a very long one, so I settled down with a hot water bottle!
Despite my aversion to Halloween, I did buy a pumpkin this weekend which the children set about with relish. OH was tasked with carving the face and between them I think they did a very good job.
'when you are both asleep, oh, and your brother is already asleep',
I left the room, just sat down on the chair in the room next door
' mum, I'm asleep now'!
so I went in blew out the candle and I never heard another sound!
Alongside this I thought I should try a new recipe. In my cookbook is a recipe for tomato and raisin loaf, sounds nice doesn't it? Probably lovely warm with soup? But oddly at the end at the end, it says, ' store in an airtight tin for 2-3 days, before slicing'. This has been bugging me, and today it got the better of me, I just had to bake it.

Now I just have to wait until Wednesday to announce the results!
