Decorating is dull
Now what I had planned to do today was strip off wall paper and prepare my breakfast room for a much needed update ( this is the room I used as an office for the past 5 years). So far I have found many reasons not to begin such as doing several loads of laundry, leisurely reading the paper over coffee, looking at several cookery books, and making a delicious vegetable soup for lunch (as you say Sam I keep coming back to food and this is not a food blog- (I have an old cookery book that belonged to my granny and it is very interesting so will feature this in a future post as I am about to try a recipe).
I wondered what amusing little anecdotes I could remember from Sam and Beccy's youth. I don't really want to embarrass my children they might retaliate! However, I have just been looking through some old photo albums belonging to Sam so today I will concentrate on her (your turn will come Beccy).
Just to show Sam's interest in food and drink here are snaps of her 18th birthday picnic in 1984.
I think her appreciation of food and wine has greatly improved over the years
Also how she fed herself on a caravan holiday she had with her friends. I think has come a long way with her food presentation since then what do you think?
Stripping wallpaper will now have to wait until tomorrow as, would you believe it, my husband is waiting for his dinner, now do I send him out for a take-away- no better not I said when I retired I would do more cooking so I must away to the kitchen. Will be back tomorrow.
