Gert would have loved it here this morning.  It was 2C when we went down the beach for our morning walk.  It was lovely and crisp and I was adequately dressed though I should have had a scarf wrapped around the bottom half of my face, I was numb when I got back to the car.  ;D

Lovely and sunny now and should be a lovely day.  Supposedly rain coming on Wed and Thursday so will make the most of it. 

I've been called in to JD tomorrow so will see if I get picked on that case.  8)

It's a miserable, drizzly morning here so no walk for me.  :(

Haven't made anything sweet for ages so am hoping to make a cake today.  I saw a blueberry one from RecipeTinEats which looks nice so I may get around to that if I can pull my finger out.  ;D

Me too Cookie.  I must admit I have a few and rotate them, but really like this one.  :)

Thanks Chookie, Cornish and Judy.  :D

Nice serving board Maddy.  Cuilidh I had a bamix for years before I got my TM, it was very good.

I've bought a couple of things for myself.  This lovely soft leather jacket in cognac, hope it looks/fits as nice in real life.  Will return if not.  Also a new wallet (already received it).  The leather is lovely on this one too and it fits so well in my hand with lots of storage inside, I really like it.  :D

Yesterday I made a big pot of bolognaise sauce adding all sorts of things to it for DH's meals for 2 nights and heaps for the freezer.  I also used the pasta machine to make some spaghetti to go with.
For myself I made a couple of salads in a jar which had amongst other things, smoked salmon and asparagus in them.  Will have one for dinner today.  :)

In all my years of having my TM, I don't think I've ever made the quiche Lorraine from the book.  I've put it on my list to make soon, thanks for the review past94.  :D

I love the look of the pink porridge Chookie.

Me too Chookie, you are an inspiration.  :D

Thanks Cookie and Cornish.  :)

Bit of a miserable day down the beach this morning for my morning walk but was still enjoyable. 

Want to do some cooking today in case I'm called in tomorrow.  Going out for tea tonight though.

Yes Trudy and thankyou.  It was discussed amongst us but as someone pointed out, what if one of us (either the car owner or a passenger) needed to leave for whatever reason, it would be very awkward.  We all thought it better to drive our own cars.  :)

Good morning everyone, a dark old day here at the moment - 8.20 am and I still need the lights on.

Julie, if you didn't have a car or didn't drive, how would that affect your jury duty?  You obviously couldn't catch a train or bus in your part of the country.  After a day of duty, the drive home at kangaroo time would be very stressful.

I never thought of that Judy.  Maybe that would be a good enough reason for someone to miss out? There are Stateliner buses that go from my town through there on their way to Adelaide.  Not sure of times though and can't imagine it would be at all convenient.

Yes Cookie, I drive into the sun in a morning and have the sun going down on my way home.   :P

Have spent a busy day today; chiropractor, hairdressers then went to lunch with my Aunty & Uncle who are visiting from Qld.  Haven't seen them for 19 years so was really good to see them.  We are meeting up again tomorrow night for dinner. Thankfully no Jury Duty tomorrow which I'm pleased about so I won't have to rush home to get ready.  ;D

Thanks Obbie.  :D

Me too Cookie.  The only thing I buy like that these days is reduced fat milk and that's simply because we've gotten used to the flavour especially in a cup of tea.  Find normal milk too creamy tasting to have in tea.  Coffee yes, but tea no.  :D
