While I feel awful for the folks whose Jubilee celebrations have been rained on today I have had the most fab day pottering about in the house doing odd jobs with nobody under my feet and listening to the rain pelting down outside.
Preparations for tomorrows 'feeding of the hordes' is well under way and the biggest job left is the cooking of tiny choux buns for a profiterole mountain which I am making for DDIL's sisters birthday cake. I've not made choux pastry for years and so searched the internet for 'perfect choux pastry'........let's just hope Delia comes up trumps.
I've also been doing a bit of pondering on the New York holiday and have to say that thinking about it I am not quite sure it would be Mr Manics thing. He would go just because I want to but I don't think that would be fair so I have decided, researched, discussed and had accepted by DD and Mr M the idea of going to Boston instead. They are both delighted.
We've had a lovely cosy evening with the fire lit and watched The Apprentice so now I am ready to snuggle down with my book and a cuppa.
The pic is another page for DD's New York scrapbook. The kit used is Liberty from Sweet Shoppe Designs and I just love the colours.
Bye for now
