Hiya Girls :)

Where has this week gone! It does not seem like 5 minutes since I did my last blog post! This post has all kinds in it, lol, firstly, let me show you the latest piccies of the kitties….. :)

here is our Jack, looking grumpy, lol…

Whiskey been mischevious, as always :) ……

They are getting on so well now, having play fights, tumbling all over the place, it is so much fun to watch, I could watch them for hours. :)

Last week, I just fancied a quiche, a nice home made quiche, so I set too, made the pastry, completely by guess work, no meaurement or anything, I blind baked my pastry, then grated cheese onto the base of the quiche, I whipped up 3 eggs with milk, added a load of grated cheese, onion, black pepper and a little salt to the egg mixture, poured this onto the base of the quiche, added chopped vine tomatoes and more onion, then baked it, and this is the result….

Yummy! I was so proud of this, as this is the first time I have made pastry from guess work instead of measuring everything out, and I just made the filling from the top of my head, and honestly, it was lovely, lol, I know you should not blow your own trumpet, but I am really proud of this quiche, and I shall definitely be making more in the near future….

John absolutely loved it…

We had it with baby tatties and salad leaves from our garden, delicious. :) With the pastry that was left over, I added some sugar to it and made a batch of jam tarts….

This afternoon, we are going over to Johns aunties, as it is her birthday, and she is having a party/bbq, all the family are going, so I am really looking forward to it, I am going to bake a lemon cake to take over, and I shall be wearing my new dress and cardi that I bought last Monday…

with a nice pair of shoes, and my new handbag…

I bought these two bags last week also, I’ll be using the purple one today, and to complete my outfit, I’ll put on some of my pretty jewlery…

I got another dress last week aswell, which I love, it is very 1950s I think, which is what I love about it….

I have not wore dresses for years, or skirts, until very recently, I have always lived in jeans, but as I get older, I want to be more feminine, and I am just loving all the 1950s type dresses and skirts that are in the shops at the moment, and I am really looking forward to ‘creating’ the new me, the new 1950s me, lol. :) I am going to get my bum length hair cut on Tuesday, I am thinking shoulder length, with layers, in a side parting, with a side sweeping fringe, then I can style my hair 1950s fashion, and I am also thinking about colouring my hair a nice red shade, think Rita Hayworth, something like this…..

or this….

I love these colours, and styles, I just love everything about the 1950s, the fashion, the hair, the make up, the home decor, absolutley everything, and I am going to try my best to be a 1950s housewife, :) .

I am still reading my Miss Read books, and I have been dipping into my Ma Larkin recipe book and my mags….

I absolutley love this two page spread in Your Home magazine, look at all these lovely florals!!!!!

I love the Cath Kidston bedroom…..

And I am in love with this settee from Ikea, how gorgeous is this!

This is definitely one of my most favourite spreads I have ever seen in any magazine. :)

Oh, I have finally got round to putting my crochet trimming up on the bathroom shelves, yay!!! Wanna see?……

i love it, and I’ll be making crochet trimming for every shelf in our house, lol. :)

Okey dokey, I am going to do the housework now, bake my cake, have a bath and get ready for the party tonight. :)

I hope you are all having a fab weekend, I am listening to The Puppini Sisters as I type this, and it is doing my poor Johns head in, bless him, just shows how much he loves me to be putting up with The Puppini Sisters, lol.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and leaving a comment.

Bye for now girls, take care. :) xxxxxx

Hello Everyone :)

Whiskey and Jack are getting on great now

they are always playing, chasing one another, snuggling

and generally been the best of friends :)

I am so pleased that they are getting on so well, oh, while we are on about Jack, I have to show you these piccies that I caught last Saturday…

Yip, that is our Jack……..inside the washing machine! He has done this before, when I have had the washer on, I always leave the door open for a few hours, to let the dampness out, but because it is nice and warm in there, from the hot water, Jack decided that it is the perfect place to sit and relax in for a while. :) Cats are funny creatures ar’nt they, lol.

Last night I went to the W.I, with Sarah, and it was lovely. Last night was the first time that Sarah and I had met, and we got on really well I am pleased to say. :) The W.I was in Fullwell, and it was actually quite packed, with ladies of all different ages. I enjoyed listening to the minutes been read, the notices given out, and then the demonstration on vegetarian cooking, by a very nice man, who was a pastor. He had brought a portable stove with him, and on there he cooked a tattie, leek and rocket soup, which smelled delicious, and which I am definitely going to try out, he cooked a nutty pasta bake, and brought with him a pre-cooked asparagus quiche and a yoghurt cake, which he explained to us how to make. It was a really enjoyable evening and I am greatly looking forward to next months meeting. :)

I finished reading Tylers Row by Miss Read, then I read The Christmas Mouse and Farther Afield

and now I am reading No Holly For Miss quin by Miss Read, what are you currently reading?

I have made an absolute load of granny squares now…

so I think I shall start sewing in the ends now, then joining them together, with a black border, I have also been knitting, I am following my very first knitting pattern, for a tea cosy, and I am loving making it…

I am working with two colours at the same time, and I believe this method is called Inartasia, I thought it would of been quite difficult working with the two colours at once, but infact, it is quite easy :)

This is the inside of the cosy, and you can see how wool is been carried throughout the work, stranding, and this stranding will give extra insulation, meaning that it will keep the tea in the pot, hot, for twice as long :)

In the past I have just knitted swatches ect… to practice my knitting, so really, this is the first proper thing that I have knitted and I am really quite proud of it. :)

I have done all the housework, so now I am going to put my feet up, read for a while, then watch Heartbeat and On The Buses on ITV3, while knitting. :)

I hope you all are having a really enjoyable day, thank you so very much for taking the time to read my blog and leave your lovely comments.

Take care everyone, bye for now. :) :) :) xxxx
