New beginnings

There are new beginnings around the corner for me. I am in the process of separating from my husband and it has pretty much totallly absorbed me for the last 8 months or so. Well I manage to go to work everyday and keep it all going, but my free time is not so free at the moment.

I manage a bit of sewing but it's all very simple stuff that doesn't require the amount of thought and planning that I normally put in.

Also my little camera has died. I had lost it for a while, and when I found it I discovered that it's not going to take any more photos.

I 've ordered a new one, and await it's arrival. It's a Canon IXUS 100 - a small compact digital with an all important viewfinder. That's been a job in itself - viewfinders are few and far between on compacts and it's very useful to have one on sunny days.

So, normal blogging service should be resumed soon.

Yesterday morning my little boy - the 7 year old - put far too much cereal in his bowl. He was just copying his big brother. So I picked up the bowl, said "You won't eat all that" and started tipping it back into the box. At this point he said "It's already got milk on it".
So I put the box of soggy cereal in the fridge and today we made a lovely yummy fattening treat. Melted chocolate ( that went 'over' when we answered the door!), butter, chopped dried apricots, mini marshmallows and the multi grain hoops. We mixed it together, tipped it into an empty cereal packet ( sort of waxed paper ?) and pressed it flat then put it in the fridge. Mmmmm mmmmm................

It has taken me ages tonight to get the LapTop to take the photos off my phone - I used to be able to so I'm miffed that something has changed and I've had to fix it.


  1. Welcome back! Glad to know you are keeping your head above water, so to speak. I had to laugh about your cereal story. But the result looks actually quite delicious. Take good care of yourself. Vreni x

  2. Great way to use up the cereal.
    Good luck with new life.
