Hello. It's been many days since I've been here. We've had a busy
past week and I've been struggling a bit with a swollen right knee.
It's a knee infection otherwise known as 'Housemaid's Knee'. I know,
it sounds like I spend my days on my knees scrubbing floors just like
the house maids a long time ago but I don't. I got to admit though that
I do a fair bit of kneeling every day - helping Lulu with her shoes, retrieving toys from under the sofa, wiping food off the floor, etc. -
but I don't think it's often enough to lead to this. And I've been told
that the symptoms will most likely persist for a few more weeks.
Weeks!!?!! Definitely not what I wanted to hear, especially as Lulu
had been a bit poorly too. She's back to her chirpy self today and
no more fever or sickness so I feel very hopeful for her. I need to be
more patient with this pesky ailment of mine. Hopefully it won't
be long before I can check in here again and when I do, I'll show
you the rug I've made for the girls' room. It's all finished now and
already getting a lot of use-- and abuse! But they like their new
rug so I'm very pleased about that.
I don't know if you've noticed but I've taken a break from my
Bake Off Challenge. I haven't stopped baking but I haven't made
anything new lately. We've been well supplied these past weeks
with homegrown apples and plums by friends and family and we've
been making delicious crumbles with all the fruit. And due to
popular demand I've made flapjacks, lemon cake and brownies -
all family favourites. I have collected some new recipes these
past weeks and hopefully I can get back to our little challenge
and try them out soon.
Is it sunny where you are today? I hope so. It's glorious here,
almost summer-like. But it did start off very foggy and cold this
morning and there are more and more leaves falling to the ground
everyday so even with the bright sunshine and warm weather it's
really undoubtedly Autumn now.
I hope you are all well and happy. Have a lovely Wednesday
