It is still fucking raining.....

for gods sake someone really is taking the piss....I buy new skirts, I buy summer shoes, I want to garden, so what happens on my one free day off this week.....it RAINS...it has not stopped ALL day, literally ALL BLOODY DAY!!!!!!!!
Rant over.....oh a final FUCK!! there, I feel slightly better now....
so what do you do when your day looks like this

Bezzie look! I have runner beans (just sprouting), 2 courgettes (a lot of dead snails - hence I still have 2 courgettes), emergency courgette (in case I don't kill all the snails!), something in a pot that hasn't sprouted (I think it might be watercress?), aspidistra, and mah massice grapevine. Nowhere near as advance as yours, so maybe we should swap weather.

Whadya do? You bake....I bought one of these, I couldn't post my own picture, as we have fallen out....bloody thing. I hasten to add, I didn't buy it from here - it is just the only photo I could find. Aaaaahhhhhhhhh!

I turfed the kitchen out looking for all of my ingredients.....look at the mess I created, all to make gingerbread men (sigh!)

I followed the instructions - do I have gingerbread men??? Do I hell!!! I have a bowl of spongey ginger stuff...the mould is sitting in the dishwasher in disgrace...BUT I am not beaten, I will come up with a Plan B and I will have gingerbread men. I did have some stuff that you brush in the mould to make the men come out easily, but as you can see, despite getting all the cupboards out, I couldn't find it! I will blame it all on DH, he went to work at 6am, so I decided to get up too and in my enthusiasm thought I would bake - gggrrrrrrrr!

Anyway, I promised WIP Wednesday so here you go

Hangin' in front of the window



Hangin' in front of the window part II

Layin' in a provative fashion on the table..
Best interpretation of colour...probably photo No 2
Yes - I do knit!!!! And at times, better than I bake....
PS: Update on Epiphany......I am still blogging, no doubt boring 2 people to death, AND I am still wearing make-up...ok, not right now this minute....but it isn't yet a 5 minute wonder....I quite like this "settled (ish) in your own skin" ;-)

Sweetie I am sorry you have all that rain! Here in hot and dry California we have smoke filled skies and too many wildfires going at the same time to count. It is dreadful. Truly dreadful. Wish you could send us your rain for a couple of days.
Keep your chin up hon, things could be worse. xoxoxox
