Just like everything else in life I am a week late starting Project 52! This is a group of folks who are linking together to take a step back from the usual posts on their blogs to get back to the basics a bit. Less ‘invited’ and ‘ad’ and more what actually is going on in our lives and what makes us tick. We all link up and get to nosey about each others’ lives and check out their sites.
As usual for me, the peri-menopause gods have decided that this is a good week to sleep. On top of my usual chronic fatigue sleepiness and general January mehs (I’m sure I was a cat in a previous life, except they get excited and do zoomies, whereas I get excited seeing a reduced sticker but don’t even zoom towards one of those).
The latest SNACK Magazine was released this week. Click here to read a copy online. It is Burns Night on 25th of this month so a haggis-related recipe is included. Haggis Spring Rolls could be a starter for a Burns Supper or some nibbles alongside a dram.
I recently ventured out to meet the dad, hoping to visit Absolute Roasters in Glasgow city centre, but they turned out to be absolute roasters as it is takeaway only…so a quick walk around the corner to Cafe Nero was required instead. Not quite helping indie sellers but I wasn’t drinking alfresco this weather. We had a catch-up on gossip followed by a visit to the father-in-law who is in hospital at the moment. I won’t bore you with my thoughts on the Royal Infirmary in Glasgow, but just to say I think our cats’ tray is better maintained… 🙁
We were late making bacon for Christmas this year, so are now having it as a post-Christmas and New Year treat instead, and have sliced, packed and frozen the majority. Of course we had to do a taste test, and no surprise the bacon was tastier than most you’ll buy in supermarkets. Will have to sort out a post about that, as well as the six million other posts I need to do!
This week I worked on a piece about Tobermory, hoping to hint to Mark to read over An Cala Ciuin post so I can link to it…let’s see how long that hinting takes.
An unexpected bonus through the post was a hand made gift from a friend. He made this spoon for our wedding anniversary (as 5 years = wood) and kept forgetting to post it. It may be late (like me!) but greatly appreciated. We will need to ask him for a full set!
Otherwise this weekend is a review of Mad Hatters Tea Party at Six by Nico and installing a towel heater in the bathroom.. what a life eh? 😉
