See, I knew this would happen. I tell myself 'no seeds this year' and yet here I am, riding high on the success of the sweet peas, with another grow your own pot standing on the kitchen counter. This time I thought I'd try strawberries. I'm hoping they will grow as big and red and juicy as these I bought from Lidl yesterday.
My lack of self control also spilled over into lunch. We took Tom out and although there were plenty of salads and baked potatoes on offer I went for the macaroni cheese. Who really wants a salad when someone else is cooking for you? No photo I'm afraid. I'm far too self conscious to get the camera out when it's busy to take snaps of my food.
This afternoon I have cooked a chicken, made a pastry case for a quiche and a jelly for Amy's friend. I have also bought plasters for said friend's boyfriend who has used all ours this week. He has a new pair of Doc Martins and his feet are covered in blisters. We are buying more sugar than ever because all her friends have 2 or 3 spoons in each cup of tea they drink! and extra bacon is now needed because we're never sure who will be here for breakfast at weekend. I have also joined the parent taxi driver club. It's a busy household lately, but I love it.
