The upshot of our sad loss was a trip to the garden centre, for the replacement. They also have a farm shop and I came home with a perfect pumpkin specimen. So pumpkin risotto for supper with roasted pumpkin seeds to fortify me while I stood there stirring. Actually, let's face it, I had to open a bottle of wine for the risotto so I has a great time sipping, nibbling and stirring while Andy bathed and bedded the boys. Whose deal sounds better?
And while I'm about it, the last (I think) of the heartfelt minimoopy fabric thank yous go to:
Amy (who sent so many lovely different fabrics I had to take two photos)
Tasha (more on the rest of that parcel another time)
Craft Fair day is October 14th - I'm getting there on the organisation front (I think) and I cannot tell you how much more relaxed I will feel once it has passed.
