from my foray into the land of blog.....tonight's dinner!!! I could have sworn that while I did some playing around here, I didn't turn my back on the oven for THAT long. An "oh no" and a swift retrieval later, and there I was handing over the burnt offering on a plate to Jed. I mumbled a quick "sorry darling"...he quietly said "that's alright Mum"....but the look on his little face told a whole other story.....mmmmm.....maybe he can see a few more of the same on the horizon!!
That's my little one in a happier moment.....
While I'm here, I'll add a little more to today's events. Having worked all weekend on writing up new patterns, it was a blessed relief to get a call from my good friends Sharon and Cheryl confirming that YES we could all manage to get together for lunch today. We've been making plans every Friday for the last month. Each week, something crops up for one of us and we have to postpone to the next week. In desperation after another failed Friday last week, Cheryl (bright little spark that she is!) proposed that we make it a Monday instead.
So we met at Jeanette's cafe at the beautiful Danish Flower Art Complex here in Highfields, and settled down to a big catch-up on news, a few stories and a whole lot of laughs. There was only one other table of ladies seated near us. They were very quiet.....think they may have been eavesdropping!! We all enjoyed a lovely fresh healthy salad lunch, followed by sinfully wicked desserts....yum....Jeanette is famous for her sweets.
How quickly a couple of hours can pass when you're in the company of good friends, and I'm truly blessed with the friends I have. In hindsight now, I'm really glad I had such a lovely lunch....cos dinner was truly dismal....even more burnt than it looked!!!
mmmm.....think I'm really going to enjoy this blogging thingo....I'll just try not to do any around dinner time!!
