Thank you for calling in - it is greatly appreciated that this blog is read as I often think it is just floating around not doing very much, twiddling its thumbs, searching for a purpose, a puzzled look on its face and I begin to wonder why I write it. I will reply to kind comments on the previous post later today and intend to blog visit this evening (I will leave a calling card should you not be available for visitors today)
This is the last of the 'table setting' photographs for now - I will be in danger of boring the pants off you all by just showing each meal time for each day and nothing else. These were taken back in July when Dom decided to set out food a la 1970s (though I do not recall ever eating an avocado in 1970s - cucumber was about as exotic as it got I think!)
I like a nice colourful spread at meal times
If you are not so fond of red tablecloths this particular design is available in other colours.......
I have also seen it in green. I DO NOT HAVE THE GREEN VERSION
Sadly I no longer have my wonderful Pixie Grippa 1930s portable record player (I cannot keep EVERYTHING)....something else that I would amuse the children with and play tiny child sized records on it. I used to take into their school to show them how people 'lived long ago' ('But mum we gallop around to this all the time'....' 'Sshh dear'....) (I still have the records...)
I get a teeny bit frustrated by Dom's reading of instructions and he gets a teeny bit frustrated by my not reading of instructions.....'If you had read the instructions...' is familiar resound in our house.
Dom did not make the jam in this instance - but this afternoon I am making lemon curd with the children
'What are we going to do....'
PS: I am attempting to write a tutorial for a weekend bag that I have made.....taking a very long time about it - it will appear eventually.
PPS: Hurtling towards C.......s alright already...
PPPS: Enjoy the last rays
PPPPS: It has been nice not working over the last couple of weeks....
