Back In The Land Of Blogging
On a totally different note MOTH and I am having a dry week, not that we drink excessively but we are just going to try going dry Monday to Thursday inclusive, this does mean living like hermits, banning visitors and the like..gee are we easily influenced or what?
Some sad news........we have gotten rid of Cable tv, for nearly $80 per month we expected more than repeats and commercials. Luckily free to air has bought in some new channels so we will see how we go over the coming weeks, last night MOTH played solitare on the computer, I had the dinner dishes done by 6.30pm but maybe this has something to do with the earlier paragraph on not drinking during the week rather than getting rid of cable LOL.
Into a slow cooker throw about 500g of peeled pumpkin, 3 - 4 medium sized peeled sweet potatoes, a ham hock or about 500g of cooked bacon bones, 2 onions peeled and cut into large dice. I left this cooking for about 12 hours and when I got home from work I pulled the bacon bones out pulled all the meat of them, blitzed the soup, chucked the meat back in, reheated and then dished up. If you don't have a slow cooker this can be done in a large pot on the stove top but of course you need to be home to give it a stir every now and then.
Okay, now onto the craft front....... I have been knitting and last night after getting half way through the left front of a jacket I am doing I realised I had totally mucked up, it was a simple pattern but me being me, didn't read the pattern properly and just went with what I thought the pattern said. "Wrong"!!! I had to un pull the whole lot last night and will restart again tonight. I also have some pictures to post of the fabulous pincushion that I received in a swap, some floss that I won and a picture of the stupid ***** jacket I am knitting so stay tuned!!!
