A year ago tonight I spent the last night in my old life. How quickly that year has passed! I haven't done all the things I set out to do when I moved into this 'sensible' house but when I look back at my year I have achieved so much.
I have a job I love even though I am so stressed atm with the new term (2 weeks in so far hence the lack of blogging!!) I have saved a sensible amount of money that has allowed me to have a nice holiday in Orkney and to do some essential maintenance/repairs to my home. I am going to a special family wedding in Singapore in November and do not need to rely on credit cards to do so. Ok, I get a family rate with Hilton as my middle son works for them but I am so lucky I am able to afford the flights for me and The Teenager to see a very special event.
My wee back garden has been producing courgettes by the dozen so luckily I love courgette soup!!
I am so disappointed with my tomatoes. They've grown but have absolutely no flavour Varieties are Ailsa Craig, Moneymaker and Russian Krim :-( I had to pick them green as the plants were dying off. They've ripened in the bowl but are still tasteless.
A recent family dinner left me with a few extra veggies that I turned into soup.
I'm loving the wee cartons of Alpro cream. They really make a difference to dishes and as they have a proper screw lid last for ages in the fridge!
Today I made a batch of soup from some bendy carrots at the bottom of my fridge. That's this week's lunches at school sorted!!
