Today may be the first day of DD never having to work weekends again but I have not let her rest on her laurels...lol.
I have taught her how to make a beef stew and dumplings from scratch just standing by and giving her instructions so that she gets to be hands on. I think you learn better that way.
It is smelling beautiful and will be served up before long.
I am so proud of her.
Once the stew was on and cooking we took a little trip up to the garden centre as I needed to visit Cotton Traders for a new shower jacket....sort of like a kagoule but a bit posher with a full length zip and side pockets instead of an under the bust, side to side pocket that makes you look like the Hunchfront of Notre Dame if you put anything in it...lol.
Navy blue with a red trim...perfect. I am now sorted for all this rain we keep getting.
The Doodles will be travelling back from Cornwall to London today so I hope they don't get the rain we have had here while they are on the road. Torrential is an understatement but now we have blue skies and sunshine although it is quite chilly.
The timer has gone so that means tea is ready to be served and I am so ready for it today.
Are you all having a lovely weekend?
