Rock buns...I have eaten 3 and I am absolutely stuffed. Totally delicious because I followed the receipe to exact. Well, I actually doubled the receipe from my new cook book called 'The Great British Bake Off' which incidently follows the tv series that has just finished. I hope, when Frank comes home, he is going to eat some of them cause my diet is totally ruined today. This is the blog I am recently following and she is an avid fan of 'Lord of the Rings'. Does anyone remember the beautiful lace circular shawl that Arwin wore. Well thats the pattern I want to have a go at. Its called 'Evenstar'So watch this space when I start it. (Finger's crossed).

Fudge...it's only taken me almost 10 years to get it to set right and today I did it my way (I think that's a song). I finally got it to look like this at the first stage where you melt all the ingredients into the sauce pan and let it get to a certain temperature.

Two posts in 24 hours.....that's a record for me. Why do you say! Well, firstly here is a photo again of the Fritilleria bulbs that Frank put it, the yellow one is my favourite..
Saturday, 6 October 2012
My, that's a big one. The bulb you see is the smelly 'fritillaria' that Frank is planting at last. They absolutely stank the cupboard out under the stairs and because its been a lovely bright, sunny and warm afternoon, we decided it was time. Luckily, when Frank opened the pack they come in, the roots on tbe bulbs were getting quite long. this gorgeous shawl that yarnharlot has just finished. That will be for me, but I will be making aa 'reader's wrap' crochet project on ravelry.com as another christmas gift. I am still having problems transferring pictures from my mobile phone to my computer. I can't wait to show the photo's of big ben..so please keep reading. Anyway, I am off now to walk the dog before it gets any colder and darker. Have a good evening.

Autumn beckons...and my feet and hands are cold. I love Autumn but I don't like the lack of sunshine through the day. At this precise moment it is chucking it down and rather chilly. We went out yesterday (Saturday) and had a little adventure but will post some pictures for you when I get my cable to transfer photos off my phone. We also went out on the 15th September to the Real Food Festival, London's Southbank and also had a little adventure there too. We saw The London Eye, The Embankment and I have got a lovely photo of Big Ben when we went over the Jubilee Bridge and there was a charitable rowing event going under us. I apologise for not putting up a new post in such a long time, my excuse is I have been too tired of an evening and just want to crash and knit. I have however, finished a Christmas project for F's Mum. She ordered 3 sets of the scarf & fingerless gloves because she wanted them as gifts for her friend and relatives. I just love the colours of the orange riot.

A change in the weather...creates a lull of needing sunshine when all summer we have been moaning 'its too hot and humid'. That about sum's me up at times, mainly because I don't like the humidity. Today, Monday 10th September 2012 starts off with an autumn breeze, leaves starting to fall off the trees, a threat of rain most of the day so far and a slight chill in the air. Sound's quite miserable doesn't it, but I love AUTUMN and it's my second favourite season. My first favourite season is SPRING and that's because the long winter nights and dark mornings soon disappear. I have felt under the weather today and have absolutely no energy so I decided to stay home and try to relax. Did I, sort of! I ended up planting this Dahlia in a hidden spot in the garden

Para-Olympic's start tomorrow and I feel more excited for it than I did when the Olympic Ceremony a few weeks ago. There is hardly any noticeable chaos on transport links at the moment and hopefully, it will stay that way. I am intending to watch the young girl with 'dwarfism' who got Gold in the Beijing Olympics and who is now 17 years old. I will be keeping an eye on her definetely. Today I got a second Christmas Present. Wanna see....

Oops! Can't believe its been over a week since I posted last. I haven't been doing much other than going to work and doing the usual chores of household duties. I have been jogging but no weight loss this past week (that's cause I keep eating crap) and have only really been doing my crochet. Wanna see....

Day 12. Not much happening today. Had a lay in, after an uncomfortable warm night, went jogging and feet and legs have been aching a lot today. We went out to look for some plants and then walked into Romford. Oh yeah, funny thing happened today. Before we went to Romford, I went into Boot's at Heathway and bought a Max Factor Mascara. Anyway, went to Romford, walked into WH Smiths and the alarm went off and thought nothing of it. When we came out, it went off again so we went to security who rummaged through my shopping bag and said it was the Mascara. Apparently, the security tag on the mascara had not been deactivated at Boot's. Weird really, considering we had gone in and out of a few other shops before we went into Smith's and the alarm wasn't set off then. Oh well, that was about the highlight of the day! We got home around 4pm and ended up having a nap, whilst F read his book. Then had dinner, walked dog and tonight, decided to watch 'knitabulls' podcast. Hopefully, will have a bit more news to post on here tomorrow...night night cause I am tuckered out.

Day 11..Olympic Wrist Bands & More

Day Ten....Went jogging and did 4 miles all round, that was a big achievement for me. I ended up meeting F at his Mum's and decided to take Tammie with me on the two trains and a bus. She was really good, well, apart from when she shuvved her nose into the ladies shopping bag when we were on the bus. The woman was only stroking her and her nose went straight in to sniff what she has. She did laugh. We ended up going to Danson Park in Welling, Kent for an hour and it was relaxing. Then on the way out Tammie decided to roll around in duck pooh and had to put up with her smell on the bus and trains coming home. It wasn't nice, cause the Jubilee Train from North Greenwich Station was packed and I had to hold Tammie in my arms and kept getting a whiff of her (she didn't care). She had a bloody good shower when we got in and she still stinks of it now.. That's about it really. Did some housework when I got home, my brother D and his daughter came over for a while and then we went to bed to watch a film. Sorry folks, I know its sounds boring but trust me, it wasn't for me. Tomorrow, I am going to have a lay in, watch some podcasts and chill cause F is out working tomorrow with his family. By the way, thank you, I have had 32 page views today.
