The weather was a bit dull but dry so I took a chance in hanging out the bedclothes after stripping the bed this morning, I was lucky it all but dried, but as it was bedding I gave it a whiz in the tumble drier to finish off. I don't use the tumbler much as it simply gobbles up the electricity.
that job done, and after breakfast, went out with dogs, Went back down the Bunny, it was a pleasant uneventful walk this morning I'm glad to say., no hassle from AYM .
It was blowy and a tad chilly, were really beginning to feel that slightest of Autumn nips in the air.
Got back home at 11.30 and checked email, had some lunch and started baking.
The new recipe I thought I'd try was Chocolate Shortcake, and though I haven't tasted it, I can't say I'm impressed, it looks a bit dry, there's no raising agent so it looks just like a crusty chocolate pancake, Hopefully by the time I fill it with butter icing and dredge the top, it may prove me wrong. I also made some cupcakes, a sponge, and flapjacks. I haven't filled or iced anything as I'm freezing almost all of it, maybe I will keep a nibble for ME.
How come you can't marry up the lids with the bottoms when you're looking for containers to store stuff, ? It's like the odd socks in the washing machine, so frustrating, I feel like dumping the lot and strarting again and buy all new containers, I might just do that, yet I've got some Tupperware from about 30 years back with matching lids, but their not the right shape or size.
This picture is as says A view to the IOW from near me, You will observe the seat which I have loaded a soom in, There are a lot of these seats on the cliff tops and are in memory of mostly local people who have loved the view, they have a plaque on them giving the name/s of the deceased with details of DOB and death. At Christmas and various days, probably birthday, flowers are left. A lovely practice I think.
Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby
