I've been working on a quilt. I usually use my sewing machine, but I'm doing all of this one by hand. So far so good! Can't wait to finish.

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

The first cake turned out a lot denser than I really wanted it to. Bearing in mind that I haven't baked cakes in ages (20+ years) I really wish I'd paid more attention to my late father who was actually good enough to have done it for a living.

I'm getting back up on the horse and having another crack at it in a bit, just after we have breakfast.

Today is a break from our usual Saturday "Full English" routine. We're having my posh take on Eggs Benedict. An (English) Muffin topped with Smoked Salmon, a Poached Egg and Bearnaise - purely for convenience and because I need all the eggs for the cake it's out of a jar, but hey, the effect is just as good.

DS has not had this before, it's something I perfected during the time I was single and my partner loves it. She does dainty and this fits the bill brilliantly.

We have some Brits currently on holiday on the first floor. When I woke up this morning, the lift wasn't working - jammed on the first floor - looks kinda fishy as it worked fine till they came. DS and I tried to fix it as our guests tonight might find it a bit hard doing the stairs to the dizzy heights of the 4th floor, even harder going down when they're squiffy. Hopefully the Lift Engineer will get called out and deal with it in time for the party.

The Wurst are taking up a whole shelf on the fridge, need to get them out soon so we have more space to chill beers  mrgreen  mrgreen  mrgreen

Relaxing after a day of sewing. Making some things for my daughter's TAFE project to put some silk screening designs on and present in front of her class to be marked on her artistry.
Now to continue knitting, got the body of the jumper done, now for the arms.

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

The cake is now cooked, this recipe seems to be working. Anthony Worrall Thompson  puke James Martin thumbsup Just need to let it cool, split it in two and build the cake. I have glace cherries well steeped in kirsch as well as a kirsch spiked syrup.

The apples and potatoes for the salad is prepped ready to cook, it'll be a mashed type of salad with bacon and onions on top.

Half of the wurst will be grilled, the other half is the kind you boil.

The missus is really good at bringing things together right at the end so she is in charge of that side.

I've got a feeling  the BazzaFest will be a big success.  mrgreen  mrgreen  mrgreen

Re: What are you doing right this minute ????

Had a busy, productive day today.

Was outside this morning, stacking fire wood with the kids.  My sunshine even had a go chopping it.  He was very sucessful, but won't be doing it unsupervised for a while yet, as an 11 year old boy and an axe sounds like a recipe for trouble to me yikes

Then I started to crochet a new winter hat for my angel, it's quite complicated with 2 different wools, but so far so good!

Then I made bread and I've started making my mincemeat for Christmas, so  it smells lovely in here.

So all in all, a good day  big_smile
