So without further ado
Next up Mr Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meals, now this is a must have book on hubbies Christmas list, he watched every single episode (sometimes twice) and almost bought the book on numerous occasions before Christmas as he was desperate to get going on it, but he refrained and was most happy to find that he'd made Santa's good list and was rewarded with the book. We've already started making the meals out of the book and have yet to manage to make one in 15 minutes but together can usually throw one together in less than half an hour - which makes us happy! This is one of the first dishes we did and resulted in hubby creating the Nom scale, Nom means it's OK, Nom Nom means it's Good to be repeated and Nom Nom Nom means that it's off the scale!
Thankfully my sister reciprocated with a New Year's Eve party the following night at her house and there I managed to take some photos and get a few video moments fit only to use as blackmail in future years LOL - New Year's Eve karaoke - always interesting! My sister singing the Darkness's "thing called love" was hysterical! My sister provided a great evenings company with my Mum and brother and his girlfriend all partaking in the festivities. Midnight and my brother let the New Year in and sang Auld Lang Syne, my Mum even brought the words to this and my sister did an amazing rendition of the same however, the modern day equivalent is nowhere near as entertaining!
The Artful Reading Club for challenging me to actually read books I get bought - let's see how long the first one takes.
We got to see some work by Mark Hearld
then discovered some fabulous planter tags in the greenhouse
and just to put it in perspective
then the recycled pirate ship
Back in the main building we got to see the beginnings of the next exhibition - said 12 year old mighty giddy about moving sculptures!
I'll leave you with a bit of crafting and then Mr Linky is at the end, this one from a UK Scrappers cybercrop class.
