In case you think I’m 5 days early for Sunday Sevens, I’m not. I’m a couple of days late. Oops! No worries, I’m sure the lovely Natalie from Threads and Bobbins who invented Sunday Sevens will forgive me, hope you will too!!
1 Hubby is reasonably well trained in most domestic tasks and does his own ironing. He dropped the iron on the lounge carpet, scorching the carpet and breaking the iron. So he went off to buy a new one. I’m quite pleased with his choice – lots of steam and quite weighty so should be just right my pressing needs!
2 My Yorkshire take on the Omelette Arnold Bennet. Replaced the smoked haddock with chicken and sweetcorn, topped with diced potatoes roasted in olive oil and garlic and a sprinkling of red leicester cheese. Served with baked beans. Lovely, yummy comfort food 🙂
3 Cut out the triangles for my Christmas bunting. I won the fabric in Natalie’s giveaway to celebrate 1 year of Sunday Sevens.
4 Apologies if you’re peckish… more yummy food. This is my mums famous chowder. Well, it’s famous in Birkenshaw and when my mum cooks a huge pan of it we all turn up with big bowls and hungry tummies. Her kitchen ends up looking like something from Oliver Twist……. “please mum, can I have some more….!”
5 Saturday’s Park Run. Before Photo. It was Tara’s (in the middle) first time doing it for real, though she’s been doing the couch to 5k this was her first 5k.
6 Tara was surprised by how hilly it was. The weather was terrible, there’s usually around 120-140 runners but today there were only 89! That says it all! We did it in 49 minutes, and cheered her all the way round. She had to pass her car 1/2 way round and we nearly lost her. She’s not been put off and is doing it again! Yay!
7 Saturday night we went to a party and left the car. So Sunday morning I had another run, another 5k and went to collect the car. It made a change to run in a different direction to normal. It looks a bit dark and dreary but this was about as good as it got last week. Luckily we didn’t get the full force of storm Desmond but it was still pretty grim.
