Hallelujah the fence is almost done!
2 sides just need crosses in the middle as extra support then that will be it :)
Do you like the new path layout? The Bearded Wonder has been rearranging it (again ;) ) It was originally spaced further apart with stones in the middle, but the weeds kept popping up through the stones so this way (hopefully!) they won't be as bad!
It's amazing that it used to look like this just a few months ago!
The other side still resembles a jungle, but it will get done in time :)
The Bearded Wonder has been amazing! He's dug out the whole front garden, and has started to add stones down this side, which are all the stones that got dug out from both sides of the garden :)
As usual, the weeds are already starting to grow back!
In kitchen news, i'm very pleased to show you my new toy, a Morphy Richards breadmaker!
It was completely free and it came from the same lady where i got Angus, down the road .
I must say, it has taken my breadmaking to a whole new level! It makes my other breadmaker look like a poor relation!
My old bread maker sadly wasn't very good at baking the actual bread, so i used to use it for the dough setting and bake in the oven, but the Morphy Richards produces bread so soft and fluffy there's no need to bake in the oven, which means i get to use the delay timer overnight and have lovely fresh bread when i wake up :)
It also has a cake setting, so i tested it and got a lovely Madeira sponge, a bit dense, but very, very nice :)
Even more exciting (to me, at least) is it has a jam setting! I'm looking forward to using it next week when we go shopping :)
I made my very first cheese and onion quiche on Tuesday, which was absolutely delicious if i say so myself! I've finally mastered my pastry, the trick in my recipe book is to use 115g of butter (or margarine) and 65g of lard, it makes a lovely flaky shortcrust :)
We had a lovely bike ride yesterday where we went to the next village (6 miles there and back) where we had a picnic and a scoot around the village, then rode/walked back up the hills to home, which just about killed me!
And of course, no blog post would be complete without Angus, he took over my yoga mat and showed me a new pose called "The Mouse Killer" ;)
