Scones for the making

I’ve only ever made scones once – many many years ago.
And the least said about that attempt the better 😊

Having seen this simple easy method – and the small amount of ingredients.
You never know what might happen in my kitchen 😊

(It needs a pinch of salt as well as a little bit of milk to brush the tops)


CWA (Country Women’s Association) is similar to the Women’s Institute

Fun Friday – the day you forget the worries of the week.

Going green on Sunday – see you then!

When our boys were little

They slept in bunk beds like these.
Plain and simple with a ladder at one end

No modular rounded corners.
No, you go this way and I’ll go that way

No drawers, book shelves or boxy steps

No roofs (rooves ?) on top or make believe houses

And definitely no playground equipment

Cute as they may look…..no barn doors – gates – or windows complete with greenery

BECAUSE.
There’s no way Catherine could have made up the top bunk.
As it was I struggled
Resorting to standing on the lower bed heads then lifting the mattress to hook the fitted sheets over the ends. Whichever boy was on top that night lugged their doona up with them

Short of having hired help do it for them
Could somebody tell me
How on earth normal people (aka mothers) change those sheets?

Fun Friday – the day you forget the worries of the week
I think we all deserve a smile at the moment 😊

Now for something different……

Wouldn’t it be great to say I’d done something different – unfortunately here in Victoria it’s still the same ol’ same ol’…….well that’s not quite true but it’s too involved to try and explain 😒

We have to look on the bright side though and I’m sure that in a few months time we’ll be able to do something different……again.

Mind you, over the last couple of weeks I did find something to do that I hadn’t done for a while – I put the ‘big boys’ knitting to one side and had a go at these…..again

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trawling through some older parts of the blog turned up this post from 2018 which along with this one from 2012 reminded me that giving should be fun……not just knitting from one end of the row to the other.

A couple of little Teds, and what look like squares which (if you follow the instructions in the 2012 post) will turn into basic fingerless mittens, are keeping me occupied at the moment.

I’m still feeling the disappointment of my last read so decided that it was time for one of those ‘I really should read this sometime’ books ……one that after being rescued from an op shop has been lying neglected on a shelf here at home for years.

So far so good, after a ‘strange’ courtship Maxim and his new wife have just arrived at Manderley. Small (tiny) print means it’s daytime reading, I have to concentrate so it’ll be read (and savoured) in small doses. Decisions Decisions – oh what to do….. read or knit. I suppose finishing Ted’s faces would definitely be a start 🙂

Ginny from Small Things hosts a monthly meme called Yarn Along  Sort of a ‘show and tell’ featuring the knitting and reading you’ve been doing recently. Do pop over and see what others have been up to.

Over to you….

Friday’s here and it’s time for some fun

All those years ago I wasn’t a ‘real’Beatles fan, I might have known a lot of the words, they were hard to miss being played on the radio all the time but I didn’t wait with baited breath for their next album to be released….heck, I couldn’t even tell you the names of their albums.

Anyway I saw this somewhere and thought it would be good for Fun Friday 😊

I’ll go first with one I do remember – Yellow Submarine
Who’d like to go next??
