Useless Article!!!

The window stick thingy......useless
I prefer the water trickling down my arms to getting a full on shower so I won't be using that again....besides which it is actually for using to clean the car so Andy and DD can use it. It won't go to waste.

The quilt is coming along nicely although I haven't got the squares completely finished. It took rather a long time to sort out the order they would go in on the finished quilt. I have only used four fabrics whereas a bought layer cake has lots of different fabrics which just go together randomly. All sorted now so I  just need to sew up twenty of the forty squares and then I can start cutting batting and backing fabric.....not today though as it's Doodle Day.

I actually got round to using the bread maker yesterday to make some dough for bread rolls..........


They turned out really nice and were served with smoked pancetta, potato and onion fritatta and a few baked beans. Andy also took a couple for his pack up to work using up the last of the beef from Sunday.

Had a very scary episode last night. DD needed to go into town after tea so I went along for the ride just to see a bit of different scenery and breathe in some fresh air. We had just got into town when I had the most awful pain across my forehead followed by double vision and it killed my eyes to look at lights. I have never had anything like it before. It lasted about ten minutes and then it was gone although I still have a pain on the left side of my head this morning which I always get when I have a migraine so I'm wondering if it's a new manifestation of my migraines. Not sure what it was but it was very frightening.

Using up the last two jars of bought pasta sauce today to make a spaghetti bolognese for tea....another Ruby favourite.
I do have home made sauce in the freezer but I want to use these jars up and won't bother buying any more. They were only kept in for emergencies but in future I will keep on top of making my own.

Just need to have a tidy up and a hoover round before my little miss arrives but coffee is high on the list before I do anything else this morning.

Hope you all have the sunshine we have this morning.

  3. I agree with the others, if it happens get checked out. I do try to keep a supply of basic tomato sauce in the freezer.I picked up a load of rtc cherry toms yesterday and they will be simmering down with onions,celery and garlic later. You have inspired me to check out my precut fabric and I found 2 layer cakes in Christmas fabric.

    1. I'm due at the doctors shortly so I'll mention it to her then but if it happens again before I'll book an appointment.
      It does make sense to keep some tomato sauce in the freezer doesn't it. I do use it quite often and generally make it as I need it. It would be nice not to have to do that.
      I only have one layer cake but it's a rather formal William Morris collection which I didn't think would look right so I will be looking out for more on Friday-x-

  5. Go to the doctor now. It could be a stroke.

  6. Sheila:

    My first thought was a possible brain aneurysm. Don't wait schedule a checkup/chat with your doctor. Better for a qualified medical person to verify if indeed it is a new manifestation of your migraines.

  7. That does sound scary Sheila and 10 minutes is a long time for something like that to last. Why don't you make an appointment with the Doctor just to get checked out.

    The bread rolls look delicious. I always make my own sauce for spag bol but buy a jar for lasagne - it's a 'make tea easy' treat to myself!

    Take care of yourself. xx

    1. I'm thinking maybe I should make an appointment now so I'm going to ring in the morning.

      I usually do make my own tomato sauce but just as I need it. The jars were just for emergencies or very quick meals and I decided not to use them again and just make a big batch every now and again.

      The rolls were pretty darn good I have to say-x-

  8. Better safe than sorry...and not knowing what caused you the pain and double vision will worry you even if you don't think it is. Hopefully it won't happen again, but you need to look after you. Take care my friend. x

  9. Yikes. That sounds quite scary! Definitely worth checking out. Your rolls look wonderful. I think I might have to make bread tomorrow!

  10. That sounds so scary Sheila! I hope you don't wait too long to get checked out with your doctor. Could it have something to do with all of the shots you had done? It could have been some sort of a mini stroke as well. They're not as uncommon as you might think. Take care of yourself. xo
