Do you like my little purple flower - I'm not sure what it is. I did think it might be a thistle but I'm not so sure.
It is nice to see a lovely bit of colour in amongst the green.
It's Saturday evening and I've had my dinner and hand washed the dishes.
What, I hear you say - why are you hand washing dishes in this day of dishwashers?
Well, let me tell you - we woke p to find our dishwasher has packed in.
Argh - that means hand washing dishes - it has been soooooo long since I have had to do that.
I have done the odd dish but not a whole meal's worth.
Oh well I've still got 2 daughters living at home - I'm sure that is a duty that can be shared around until it gets fixed or we get a new one :))
It just goes to show how spoiled I have become in this day of gadgets and time saving machines.
I can remember when I was a wee girl my mum used to have a set day for doing her laundry. It took all day standing beside a twin tub and do it all manually. Phew, can you imagine having to do that today. Mind you I loved to help her doing it :)
I have decided I want to use my slow cooker - you know I bought one about 18 years ago and have never used it. So I have looked it out and cleaned it up and tomorrow I plan to use it for the first time.
I reckon it will be great to put it on in the morning and by tea-time our meal will be ready. So I can come home from work and voila - dinner will be ready.
Does anybody have any great recipes I could use?
