We've had stormy weather here all through the night and even
now it's still pretty wild out there. There's rain but mostly it's
howling, gale force winds. Such a terrible sound! It's not dissimilar
to the horrible typhoons we have back home. I'm just glad it's
the weekend and I'm at home with the girls. My husband had
to go to work but it's a shorter shift today so hopefully he'll be
back by mid afternoon.
It's really a day for staying in and keeping cosy. We'll probably
spend most of it watching a DVD or two, and maybe a little bit
of crafting. I'm still working on my pot holder. I'm doing
the embroidery at the moment and it's going well so far.
Once this is done the finishing line will be in sight - hopefully!
Saturday is when we clean our pet hamster's cage so we'll
do that too. Here he is eating his breakfast. We call him Sir Stan,
short for Sir Stanley Matthews (my husband is a big Stoke City FC
fan!). Santa brought him for the girls last Christmas. He's cute,
nosey, fun and playful. We all adore him.
The other day Lulu and I made Millionaires Shortbread.
Well, it's the easy version; we used ready made milk caramel.
Have you ever tried it? We were given a jar of this milk caramel
for Christmas. It's gooey and sweet and tastes wonderful.
We're told it's great for pouring over vanilla ice cream. We haven't
tried that yet, but I might add a bit of it to my porridge tomorrow.
I know, very naughty.
It was great for the Millionaires Shortbread. It certainly made
the job easier and we have a lovely treat for our snacks later.
So that will be our day. The girls are excited to watch Lady and
the Tramp again. I'm looking forward to my crochet. I think it's nice to
be able stay in today and I'm glad that we can do just that.
I hope you're all having a good start to the weekend.
Stay warm, safe and cosy. See you soon!
