Mid Week 5 A Day............

A day off work and a few friends over to lunch. Thought I would make a summer fruit salad.

We started with salmon , asparagus, new potatoes and salad.

Followed by a lovely summer berry fruit salad. So ooooo refreshing. We have chatted all day and drunk tea, exchanged ideas and caught up with our news. A relaxing way to spend a day off work and unwind. Off now to clear and tidy all my mess in DH1 bedroom...he comes home from University at the weekend and at the moment his bedroom looks like a bomb has hit it. Roll on next month when I hope to purchase my shed....................

Add on to the above post, the shed is for me to work in, so I can make the biggest mess possible!!!
No more worries putting everything back into the loft when my son needs his bedroom back during the holidays.

Sweets and Treats.......

This weeks report........ well not much has happened here in the "patch" other than working. It seems to consume my life sometimes. The days I work are long, and an even longer day this last week, a 14hour shift. Hence, tiredness and catching up on lost sleep seems to be the order of the day. The good weather ended mid week and it has been miserable and cold, making for snuggling up and watching the TV most evenings. Not very productive I hear you say, yes, I totally agree. Even Friday Treats were not homemade this week, I resulted in buying bought ones which were not as nice as "proper homemade", they were very dry and full of additives and e numbers. Please make your own next time came the cries from colleagues.

I have entered into deal, to receive a free badge
in exchange for a photograph of me wearing it. She has some wonderful designs and I choose the cupcake one, naturally. I have duly taken the photograph of me wearing it and emailed it to Jane. Hopefully it will be seen in the catalogue she is putting together.

Finally some sweets that I have not had for such a long time,I find these very moorish and love the fact that when you take one it is a complete surprise every time as to what flavour it is you have chosen. A real sweet treat.....on that note I shall leave you and hope to feel less tired and more energised in the coming week.
