Man in Charge of the Kitchen?!?

Well last night was knit and Natter night again and I’d made Meatloaf coz I knew Darling Luffly Husband and my Daughter would enjoy it, it was quick and easy to prepare and it meant that I woudn’t have to serve it up before I left and it gave me an hour of ‘free’ time to get ready and get other stuff sorted before I left.

As I left I did have a wonder about the success of my plan of leaving a man in charge of my kitchen. I had left full instructions on what to do when the timer went off and left him a tin of Baked Beans out as subtle stearing away from Meatloaf sandwiches 🙂 My Darling Luffly Husband is an intelligent human being but ultimatly a man all the same so my wondering was valid I thought.

When I got home I was starving. I was expecting to go in to dried up meatloaf and a full can of beans but what I got was a pleasant surprise. My Darling Luffly Husband had covered the remaining Meatloaf and had left me a portion of beans so all I had to do was slice and microwave and sit down and enjoy.

So I reckon that leaving My Man in charge of the Kitchen wasn’t the disaster that may have been in many other kitchens up and down the country. It’s all in the training girls!!!

P.S. I love you Darling, don’t ever change.


400g mince, a HUGE onion finely diced, Salt and Pepper (more than you think), 4 stale bread rolls wizzed in the blender mixed with a egg and some milk til it’s squishy.

Put everythig in a big bowl and mix with your hands till it’s all combined then add a big squirt of ketchup (a la Roseanne Barr) and mix it again.

Stuff it all into a greased 2lb loaf tin then bake for about a hour at 180 degrees.


Carboots & Festivals :)

The local 4 day festival is going on round here just now and the usual weekend carboot I go to was awful as a result. The fesitval is supposed to bring loads of visiters to the area and be great for the economy etc etc but… because of fear of the traffic jams and hoards of tourists the locals… stay at home hehe! 🙂

The result was though that although the carboot was smaller than usual 😦 and there were less people there to buy… I got a greater number of bargains yay! 🙂

If the weather holds out I’ll be going to another carboot tomorrow morning so I’ve got my fingers crossed the rain doesn’t come. so if it’s sunny, check in for another bargain udate tomorrow.

Knit n Natter

I went to my first ever ‘Stitch n Bitch’ tonight and it was FABBY!

I was soooooo excited to go, I thought it was on TUESDAY but it wasn’t so after a day or twos delay I got all excited all over again today, on THURSDAY, the right day for the knit and natter at my Local Yarn Store.

My Darling Luffly Husband was looking after our two kids for the evening so I was running round trying to do some last minute tyding up, putting jammies on the kids, getting supper ready so everything was kinda already done 😉 Then I checked my watch and found out I was late.

By The time I’d got ten mins out the village I realised that all the running around had made me work up quite a sweat and I had…..BO!

ICK just what you want when you’re meeting a bunch of new people for the first time hehe… sorry girls, I’ll be more relaxed and leave time to shower next time .

There were so many lovely projects on the go, can’t wait for the next one to see the progress. It’s only 14 sleeps, hehe. I’m like a kid waiting for christmas to come around again.

STOP! It’s the Holidays…

Everything stops at Holiday time round here.

Both my Kids are under school age and I am totally unaware of the dates of school terms so it seems that everytime we get settled into a routine of toddler groups, nursery days and mamma-meets it all comes to a grinding halt coz… the schools are holiday!!! Grrrr. For Seven… SEVEN weeks, those of us without kids at school are left in a kinda lonely Limbo. My Husband is still working regular shifts, we ain’t going anywhere on holiday and if I go out with the kids it’s just me and the kids. It’s not all the other kids in the village to play together and all the other Mums to chat with. 😦

May the next seven weeks pass as quickly as they did when I was a kid at school, hehe! I wait eagarly for the recommencment of all the toddler groups, nursery days and mamma-meets. 🙂
