I'm a bit frantic at the moment, getting two sections of the Methodist Local Preacher's course ready to submit, and I have lost some vital bits..........
You should see the mess I have made looking for them........the tutor is coming in the morning so I managed to fling the hoover around the sitting room this afternoon, but the room is also festooned with washing so that isn't a great look - she's a mum too though, so she should be kind :)
Frugal? Mmm - we have done some of that today: the EFG made sort-of samosas for tea. They were going to be samosas using left over filo pastry but that was far too dry and so that has gone in the chook bucket and she used up some puff pastry instead to make triangular parcels which she filled with a spicy chickpea, onion and bacon concoction and baked in the oven. The gang ate that with a side dish of peppers and cucumber and apparently it was quite filling. That leaves the mozzarella baked spaghetti dish for tomorrow then. There is a menu plan done, it just hasn't made it here yet.......do bear with me, please - it's been a l-o-n-g day!
More frugal? The Book People catalogue went straight in the bin - best place for it as it is far too tempting! And I have bought the FH two absolutely gorgeous puzzles today from the doctor's surgery in the village for the grand sum of £1 each. One is a Ravensburger [click to see] and the other another quality brand, and both 1000 pieces. They will keep him occupied for a while!
