I go away on holiday tomorrow, cue manic baking to make yummy things to eat while we're away. I've made a batch of the cookies I've talked about before here, and also tried a new recipe for Oatie biscuits from Natalie at the Yarn Yard
I'm not going to repeat the recipe here as part of the fun is how Natalie has written it out. However I will share a quick picture, and say that they're yummy.

Yarn Yard Oatie biscuits

Todays to do list is as follows- Go shopping for food to eat on holiday, call in at the club kit store to borrow a couple of things, go pick up contact lens's (is that how you pluralize lens?), pay cheques in at the bank, place electronics on charge that are coming with me, pack, and plan the route we're taking to drive there.

Not much then, had best get up and get on with it!

Fun and frolics in the park

Just thought I'd share the pictures that were taken on Sunday, it was a beautiful sunny day and to our surprise we had a jazz band to listen to while we ate our picnic. Of course my knitting came along, and after the picnic we played twister, though apparently playing it in public is "indecent", shrug, who knew?

Today is not so nice, and I really need to do some of my planning work for september. Can i blame the rain for why I'm still in bed? No, thought not, best get up and get on.

I'm probably the last to know about this

but what the heck!
I've just been pointed towards a site called Post secret. From what I can tell it's an address where you send in a captioned postcard admitting your secret to someone anonymously and the card is then loaded on to a blog. Some of these cards are funny secrets, I particularly liked "I steal new rolls of loo paper from hotel rooms when I wipe at home I relive the memories of being with my married lover"
Some however are really sad " A few years ago I thought"Maybe if I get sick I'll know who my real friends are" then I got cancer"

However this one made me smile

I'm off to make banana muffins then I'm going to the park with friends. Have a lovely sunday.
