W is for Well.......

W is for Well
Ok well this once again feels like a confession I have neglected to blog and I have even neglected to read blogs I allegedly follow.
That is about to change as are many other things in my  life so here goes for a brief catch up on my Wonderful life.
The time has come for me to move again this time I am moving to my very first own place.
It is an apartment in an old converted chapel on chapel street which just happens to be up the road from my church I will share pictues after I move in on November 7th.
It has been very exciting as well as daunting  as I have never lived on my own before.
Pinterest has become my new best friend as I search for ideas to make my apartment my home.
I am describing the task ahead of me as trying to fit a size 9 foot into a size 6 shoe.
I have a a decent sized kitchen  that I am going toaccesorize with red and lime green.
As you can see the Kitchen is excellent for one
The Lounge is also a good size again for one but with a two seeter sofa bed
This Leather recliner chair found on freegle
and an Ikea chair I will have plenty of seating for guests.
I have also purchased a large {maybe to large} mahogany table and six chairs of gumtree.
So as you can see I have been a bit busy with lots to follow.
Well I have to go and do some blog reading and then pack some more boxes.
Please link up with the wonderful woman called Jenny here  I would love some encouragement to keep me blogging

Thank you to Jenny Matlock for this inspirational blog.

23rd May 2015
Dear Reader  
I have been atrocious at blogging recently and to be honest I am struggling with a theme for this round the problem I have is that I have been asked not to blog about my grandsons well no photographs at least.
So what should I do then?
I want to be followed so I have to be consistent as well as entertaining to you the reader. 
Wow I have just had a thought (rare I know), how about I share with you week by week people or things that are important in my life?
Well I guess I wont know your opinion on this until I actually start posting .
I am having no theme nothing cheesy I promise , ok maybe I cant promise that. I will deliver this and that from my life.
Faith ,Family and Friends.
I hope you enjoy this eclectic mix of my life

Anyway here goes I have an amazing 2 year old grandson called Arthur William .He is a bundle of mischief . He is Adored by All who meet him As I am sure you would if you met him .
He has an older brother who I will introduce at H .
Arthur is tall at 18 months he was predicted to be over 6ft tall no one is surprised by this thou as his father is 6ft 4 and Aunt 6ft 2 in fact no one on this side of the family is less than 5ft 6 1/2
I know this post is short on colour but I don't have any photos to share sorry .
I promise I will do better next week.
Must go want to read as many posts as I can
Have a great week

Curry Chat and Crisps

I have a friend who I have known for a good few years ,we met when her daughter Olivia joined Rainbows , Rainbows is the youngest section of the girl guiding movement in England 
At the time I was the unit leader
Tiffany and I got on well and she was the lady that I entrusted my daughters wedding dress adjustments to .
We lost touch for a number of years albeit for intermittent Facebook contact  This all changed when Tiffany moved back into her home on the same road that I live on.
Last nights activities came about when I discovered that Tif was a great Curry maker I asked her to teach me I provided the meat and dessert well half the dessert
The following photographs shows our evening .

I arrived to an organised layout of ingredients  looked like the set for a cookery show

Serious stuff first, what I omitted was the mug of tea I had first Honest
Tricky stuff my first instruction was to stir the onions ,wine in hand this was passed
Tiffany then did something totally alien to me She followed a recipe
Next came the careful addition of spices, I was not trusted for this part so I carried on drinking  
Next the greenery wow the fragrance entering my nose was amazing
Oh heck now I had to add the tomatoes whilst stirring and trying to drink my wine that was getting warm and warm Rose is never good
The Chef needed to have a quick look and again the fragrance wafted through the room
The last part was to add the Coriander
Rice Cooked best plates and bowls out
Look at the rich colour (color for my American readers)
Finally on the plate
The Chef and Sous Chef ready to tuck in
Well I would like to say thank you to Tiffany and whilst having lots of fun I have genuinely got the bug for making my own curry My Turn next
