So last Saturday was my birthday, yay! Here are my prezzies…….
The book “The Silver Spoon” is brilliant. I’ve used it everyday since Sunday, mainly making sauces so far but I did make Turkey Stew with Mustard on Tuesday. Tonight I’m going to make bolognese sauce and already I can see it is going to be different to what I usually do to make it. There are no tinned tomatoes or garlic for a start! Interesting!
We went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince on Saturday afternoon, which was okay. You couldn’t go and see it as a stand alone film though becasue it didn’t really end anywhere, I think you need to have seen all the other films or read the books.
Then we went to Nando’s for dinner. Never been before. Again it was okay, the chicken burger was very nice but it was a bit fast food-ish for a sit down meal really.
I also had a cheque from my mum which I put towards my new subscription to Yarn Forward magazine. I have every issue right from the start so I thought I may as well subscribe again and save myself the price of two issues a year. My first issue and free gift arrived yesterday.
The free hat pattern is quite nice actually so that will go on my Ravelry queue!
After Colin met Eddie Izzard on Tuesday, he booked us tickets to go and see him in Liverpool in November!
