hello, baking. I wasn't as far ahead with the baking as I thought, and the idea of getting ahead over the weekend was foiled when I ran out of a heap of ingredients (gingerbread without golden syrup is just sugar cookies) And I had a moment yesterday when I thought I wanted to throw in the towel and just give up. Then I baked some more cookies, and I was sorted. This week there will be shortbread, snickerdoodles, orange cookies and gingerbread.
hello, new ideas. I talk about stumbling over ideas regularly, but I don't often act on them. This time, I spent time writing the ideas down, fleshing them out on paper, researching to follow up, and telling others about the ideas for accountability. Which leads nicely to the next point.
hello, Christmas. It's 74 sleeps to Christmas, just ten Fridays left. And starting this Saturday, there will be a series of posts right here with tips and ideas for getting ready without too much overwhelm. I'll be working right alongside you, and together, we'll get ready for Christmas.
hello, playground. Getting out of the house is hard. I mean, I walk everyday with the kids to school, and extend it with a walk around the block. But actually getting out of the house, other than going to the supermarket once a week, is hard. So it's a little bit exciting to be heading to the playground this morning to meet Toni for a play and grown up chat. And Steve's got days off for the rest of the week, so we can get out with the kids after school a bit, too.
hello, Monday, a new start every week.
