We have had guests for breakfast this morning.
Last night DS was reminiscing with Ruby about the eggy bread that Andy used to make so he phoned and asked if he, DDIL and Marlowe could come for breakfast this morning and have the said eggy bread.....obviously not for Marlowe....she had porridge and a clementine.
It was so lovely to see them and as always Marlowe had us in stitches with her funny faces and abundance of cuteness.
She has gone home with one of the candy cane ornaments from the tree which she rather took to and played with for ages.
The kitchen is calling this morning.
I have to make a pie as requested by hubby. I pulled a pork fillet out of the freezer last night so we'll have a pork and apple pie with steamed veg and a thyme gravy so that should warm our cockles on this cold day.
No big chores today so I will spend the rest of the day having a potter around and organising fabric.
I must be getting back in the crafting mood as last night I bought issue one of the new cross stitch part work. For 99p you get a good sized piece of Aida, six skeins of thread and a pack of six needles which I thought was well worth the 99p. I don't particularly want to take up cross stitch again but the threads will be useful for felt projects.
I'm quite sad that the patchwork and quilting shop nearest to us has decided to close their unit at the garden centre and carry on their business from home via the internet. It was lovely to go there and actually see and feel the fabric before you purchased any and obviously to look at samples for inspiration. I'll miss my little trips there.
Well it has just turned afternoon so I had better go and get on with the filling for the pie.
I hope you are all keeping warm today.
