DD bought me this beautiful cookery book and cook's note book on Saturday from the hospice book shop in town.
I am so pleased that the note book hasn't been written in so that I will be able to fill it with my own recipes to pass on to DD.
I have had a quick look through it but to me it is one of those books to be read in the winter while snuggling under a quilt with a nice cup of tea.
Meanwhile it's gorgeousness will be propped up on the dresser.
It's absolutely sweltering here so guess what this mad woman is making for tea......steak and onion pie.
There is a pan of meat braising and obviously the oven will be on later but at least Andy will go off to work tonight a happy man with his tummy full of pie and chips.....I did offer new potatoes and veg but no....he wanted chips.
I missed a quick cuddle with my Ruby this morning when she was dropped off for Grandad to take her to school. I hadn't had a good night as it was so warm so I overslept. I will send kisses with Andy when he picks her up to take her home later and then catch up with the cuddles tomorrow when she comes for tea.
Although the thermometer only says 24C it feels so much hotter and I can't get up much enthusiasm for doing anything so the order of the day will be pootling and faffing with a bit of hoovering once Andy gets up. The jobs still get done but maybe not as many as should be done and at a far slower pace than normal. Who cares? Tomorrow is another day....lol.
I'm off for a cool drink and a read of the papers.
Hope you are all having a good day.
