Good Morning Blog friends, how are you all today? well I hope. Thank you for continuing to call in to see what I have been up to. I really enjoy having you here, also popping over to your Blogs to see what you have been doing.
Wow! things have been busy here. Tuesday after I did my very successful talk at the Ladies Club, I came home, John said we would have lunch then go to Blaigowrie (our nearest biggish town although still very small) to the Bed Shop and get a new Memory Foam Mattress. I have not been sleeping very well, he felt that might be the answer. Our bed was only 4 years old, however off we went to see what they had. OMW! have you seen the price of some of these mattresses???? We have bought quite a few things from the shop. Andy who owns the shop is excellent, always willing to give you the best price for Top Quality goods. We had a choice of 3 mattresses in our price range, we chose one and Andy said he would drop it down to us when he closed up. He had some paperwork to do so would be about 6.45. On the way home we discussed putting the mattress from our bed which was a top grade one on the guest bed ......... you can see what is coming here!!!! OK guest bed stripped and bedding in the washing machine, the boys had slept there a couple of times. Could not put used bedding back on the bed. Stripped our bed, bundled that in the utility room, that would be the next load to go on. Swapped our mattress to the guest bed and got it made up...... phew!!!! hard work that. Left the mattress off the guest bed Andy was to dispose of that.............When I looked at it, it was like new, we have had a few guests and the boys sleep on that bed but it is not old. Isobel across the road told me a few weeks ago she would have to get a new bed for her spare room soon. She now has the mattress and is over the moon. Andy arrived, brought in the new mattress, while he and John chatted I got busy making up the bed. Tell you what I had a great sleep Tuesday night but I don`t know if I was so blooming tired after all that work or if it was the new mattress. I did sleep well again last night so maybe John was right!!!!
No card or paper project today, I made some of my "sweet things" yesterday.
Big pot of "Tablet" all my "Scottish Friends" will know exactly what this is. I have never seen this in England and I know when any of our English friends come up they love it but say you don`t get this down south. Your nearest would be Fudge but to me it is nothing like it. Fudge is soft this is harder, anyway it is full of sugar but Mmmmm!! yummy!!!
Next lot "Truffles" I made 60 of these. I bag some of each, put them in the Gift Bags or Gift Boxes for my friends and neighbours. Hazel told me that I should cut back on the Baileys that I put in the Truffles................... Oh! Hazel you have to taste the flavour..................I do not drink but I do like to taste the flavours I use in things.
Now the biggest thing of all is to get them bagged up so that "some people don`t eat them". Once John, John Jnr. Audrey and the boys know Granny has been making these, I actually have to hide them if they are not bagged up.
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
