Only a couple of pairs left to go in the Christmas knitting mitt marathon. I hope they're appreciated!
I did lots of washing, changed the bedsheets, and cooked Slimming World spaghetti carbonara (can you believe I'd never cooked carbonara before at all?!) which was pretty delicious - even if I do say so myself. It even met the exacting standards of The Bearded One who announced, after I'd cooked and mid-way through eating, that carbonara was his childhood favourite. No pressure then
I also got round to making some more Christmas gifts, out of old vinyl records.
The photo isn't much good, but can you tell what it is yet?
These may help:
The last one has already found a new home as The Bearded One took a fancy to it, so it's now residing in Paddington.
These are very easy to do, involving old vinyl records - preferably with a colourful label or an interesting track - an ovenproof bowl and an oven.
Oh, and oven gloves...don't forget the oven gloves!
It's great fun and produces unique results every time.
So, quite a productive day all in all.
Today was the total opposite as I spent most of the day at a spa with three of my closest girlfriends. We haven't caught up properly for way too long. They all have small children of varying ages and we all have busy lives, so today was a real treat for us all.
So it's back to the real world tomorrow for another busy week at work. Here's hoping that it goes as quickly as this one has, as next weekend should be fun too!
Just time for a quick trip to Handmade Harbour before bed - in fresh, clean sheets, and fresh clean pyjamas, it's the little things in life :)
