Just back from Lidl. They have large mushrooms (250gms) for 42 pence and Branston baked Beans for £1....Bargain !
Just getting ready for the family to descend for the afternoon, and then we are out tonight so not a lot of time to sit at my computer. I do, however, have to find time to write the New Years' message to the members of the Civic Society (I'm the secretary). Most of the members have the internet, but I have to print out and hand deliver for those that don't. These members are all quite elderly and always seem to be sitting at their window as I approach the letter box ! So I have to allow at least two hours to deliver 6 letters in the village ! At least I can check all is well and see if they need anything. I will go tomorrow morning before B one of our Shared Lives guys arrives in time for lunch.
Will dig up some Jerusalem Artichokes today. If anybody has recipes they want to share re. these I'd love to see them as it is good to ring the changes. Also if you live in England and would like a root I'd be happy to send one to you. The tops make good rabbit/goat food and if left to flower produce a spray of blooms like small sunflowers/helianthus. They grow extremely tall and are a good windbreak throughout the summer/autumn. Oh and yes they are not called "Fartichokes" for nothing!
Am recycling some shelves into my sewing room/spare bedroom tomorrow. I have taken a picture of this room as it is now and will take a picture when I have finished - as soon as I find out how to do that !
Also need to find a picture of me to put on this blog. ( NOT a pretty sight) perhaps one of my daughters will take one today.
