A bit of a grotty night last night I ended up giving in and taking a tablet at 2am so I have slept in late and feel a bit groggy but at least I got some sleep. The weather here today is much like yesterday cold and damp with rain on the cards for later. I had several chores to do yesterday so I was out for most of the morning but as luck would have it I found not only a leg of lamb [the last one] in Aldi but they still had wagyu burgers so I bought more for the freezer and last night for supper that is what we had stuffed into brioche buns with salad. These have to be the best burgers I have ever eaten they are well seasoned and just delicious I melted a slice of mozzarella on top of each one so they were extra scrumptious.
I have started my final shawl this one is being done in "stary night"
When I posted off the one for Joy it caused lots of discussion in the post office as everyone wanted to have a look and were surprised at how light it was. I had taken it loose as I needed a jiffy bay to post it in. I am beginning to think I could start a business making these but I know I would eventually get bored with the same old thing. Anyway I have enjoyed knitting the ones I have done and all my friends have had one as a gift so I am happy. The only person that doesn't have one is me but then they are not exactly dog walking kit. I have not made one for Sandy as I don't think it is her style either.
The lunch menu today is a very traditional roast leg of lamb with roast potatoes and peas and carrots. I have had a bit of a mental breakdown where peas are concerned and now have a freezer full. Every time I go shopping I decide I need peas but in fact I have plenty so thank goodness they don't come to any harm in the freezer.
Well I am now very far behind with my morning preparations so I had better get going and do some chores. There are sheets in the washing machine which have been there for two days waiting for some drying weather but we are plagued with showers so I give in and they are going in the tumble dryer.
Have a good weekend and lets hope the weather picks up a bit for the bank holiday as I am sure people have outdoor plans. Today feels like a day for huddling around the fire with hot soup!!!!!
