Not too sure about this new Blogger.......seems to take longer and doesn't always work. I suppose it will take a week or so to function efficiently so I need to be patient:-)

Carpet-drying with the hairdryer this morning................somehow specks of dark colours appear on my bedroom carpet periodically. Now could it be that I wave the ink around too enthusiastically when I print? Having taken the easel/paints etc out of the bedroom..there was a space......and I had to fill it up didn't I....with a printing table(small) and inks, monoprinting stuff. There is no answer to this. Tidy is not a word in my basic vocabulary for whatever reason.

Cool and wet here in Norfolk.not so nice for the holidaymakers (lots) but perfect for me:-)

And I'm not happy about those donuts!where are they going to be..........?

Well, finally! Couldn't remember my details to log in:-)
Visited my old home on Friday..in a village not too far away and it was a strange feeling to be 'visiting'. On the whole I don't think it's such a good idea to go back to places. It is better to keep the memories in the filing cabinet in your head probably. Wasn't too bad tho'.

For those of you who like to make food...try mixing the grated rind of one lemon, the juice of three with 200 g caster sugar. Stir together with a fork. Add 2 large cartons of thick cream (say 425ml) slowly with half a teaspoon of salt. Stir well and pour into a plastic dish. Freeze for 1 hour, stir and freeze again for four or more.................lovely lemon ice cream. (recipe from a friend in Somerset who has it from a friend in Devon)

Well ok I realise it's not the absolute best thing if you're on a diet but...................:-)

Only 4 more days to go before flying off to Prague for a long weekend...trying really hard to learn one or two words in the Czech language but it isn't easy!
