Baking biscuits

New oven and a new recipe might not work out being my best idea…

But these look interesting. Oh and add into the above, using gluten free flour…

Glutton for punishment. Obviously!

Look out for photos later….

Flump, slump.

I think I’ve been running on stress and adrenaline since I bought the cooker last week. I have been pushing myself to do things, not sleeping well and generally over extending.
On the plus, I have a clean flat, new tiling, a new cooker (installed and dinner cooked using it) and feel a sense of accomplishment.
On the down side since the cooker arrived today, I have slumped. I am really tired, I have pain, hips, feet, shoulders, hands, wrists, and a head ache. I nearly didn’t make dinner as it seemed too much bother. I’ve discovered yet more dermatitis. I can’t concentrate, so no knitting, no reading. I am officially taking tomorrow off.
Off to bed soon, then tomorrow the only things I am doing are feeding me and the cats, and things to relax. I was going to make biscuits, but they can wait.

Ribbit, ribbit

When you don’t pay attention the frogs invade….

Forgot waist decreases, reknitting the start of section three, in the 3 in 1…… It was only 30 odd short rows.

I admit I am rubbish at blogging

I am totally rubbish at this keeping up to date malarkey.

It’s like thinking about blogging is the same as doing it. If I could blog with my mind, your feeds would be overloaded with posts.

I frogged Daisy. I was not feeling the love. And so I decided to knit this instead. I stole a ball of yarn out of the hexapuff stash to make up the colours, and have so far knitted….

I am totally feeling the love for this.

I bought a cooker on Tuesday. A lot of my time yesterday was spent stressing over tiles. Turns out I need an extra course of tile behind and above the stove top (it needs to be 750mm and I only have 500mm).  The cooker arrives on the 9th, the tiles need to be up or they won’t install it. cue me stressing. Yesterday I bought the tile, grout and some tools, but the tile cutter is rubbish. It doesn’t score the tile well, although I suspect if the tile was shorter it might work. I (or rather GoD lady with her Amazon Prime magic) have ordered a better cutter, which will be here tomorrow. I only need to cut ONE tile and it is causing me fits. Actually, I will cut 2 and add 2 courses, as future proofing against the legislation changing again.

I have never tiled, so this will be an adventure.

Once I get over the stress of the cooker, I will buy the new fridge freezer.

Gosh, so long since my last post

Been knitting a lot. Knit a cowl for a friend last week. In 3 days, scunnered myself. Didn’t knit anything for a few days.

Today I knit a dress for a friend’s daughter’s doll. It might be a little big, but with no measurements or doll to compare to, I did my best. It needs fasteners.

Currently looking for something new, possibly stripey.
