Perfect way to end the week

The charity event bluebell and myself supported on Saturday was very well organised . I was apprehensive thinking will people turn up on a Saturday afternoon , but people supported the charity well . You could not fail to enjoy . A four piece music group , absolutely fabulous , I could go over the top about the girl vocalist but that would be unfair to the others . She sang popular tunes from popular artiste , so good I honestly thought it was c,ds being played .

The bed topper I,m showing here I sold for £45 . Yes I know it is cheap but I had pleasure making it , and I,m sure the lady who bought it will enjoy using it .

bluebell had her road directions written down on how to get to the venue, "what,s the name of this road coming up, " she would ask ! fancy asking me ,! I have 3 different eye problems and have difficulty seeing stuff more than 12 inches away , well , I can see stuff but not road names in the distance.

On the way home bluebell took me to the fish and chip shop . It was like food from heaven . I sat in my kitchen scoffing with joy in my heart , didn,t feel so joyful at 1 in the morning though .

Today I had time to do things I,d put aside . I,ve roasted tomatoes ,onions and herbs for future meals of pasta . I also got around to sorting out one of my freezers , there sure is a lot of stewed fruit in there . I was given a pot of home made Pesto at the charity fair , it was absolutely delicious, Rocket and cashew nut, I think I tasted a hint of garlic too . I will never buy commercial pesto again . I intend to look on the internet for recipes . there were about 4 different kinds on the stall . I love tried and tested recipes , so please pass your well used ones on to me . bluebell says I,m a foodie , she,s right , but I like good quality food I make at home , having said that I,m now off to make a coffee walnut cake while the oven is still warm from doing the tomatoes.
