I got daisies in green pastures...

Zoom Zoom...

Quince brandy. Made with ornamental quinces which apparently should be fine. Looks nice, looking forward to tasting it come Christmas.

Bargain angora blend yarn, 50p per ball from a local charity shop.

Fab set of tins from Ikea, the big rectangular one is especially useful, my faithful old round tins have been usurped.

Some recent bargains from Morrisons of all places...

... a cake stand for £5, I don't think it's too Christmassy - I'd happily use it other times of the year too, and...

...a new knitting & crochet book, also a mere £5.

Haven't had much of a look at it yet, first impressions are that it's quite attractive.

Nice blanket (though I think it was just rows & rows of treble stitch)]

And a hot water bottle cover. I lurve my hot water bottle. (Our house is Victorian, we live in Scotland, it gets a little chilly at this time of year!) I may treat it to a cover at some point.

This morning was the chilliest so far I think, but it was lovely while it lasted. I took my camera with me when N and I walked to the local chemist (to buy another hot water bottle for hubby so mine is now all mine!) to capture a couple of frosty scenes...


So just a quick catch-up post. Things are a little busy at the moment, I'm going to be out the next five nights on the trot slapping my bass (note the b in bass!). Well, I suppose it's nice work if you can get it but I can't be bothered now so I'm away to boil the kettle for my hot water bottle... (perhaps I need someone to watch over me!)

Good night.

Those tins look gorgeous - decorative yet handy all rolled into one.

It was chilly here today too.

Oh good shopping, I especially like the cake stand. I did get myself a new hot water bottle the other day at Lidl £2.99.
