Well my day did not get off to a good start, with the discovery that Milly had managed to knock over my corner table, which has been her favourite sleeping spot, causing chaos.....
...and breaking one of my ornaments! I removed her from behind the table at least a dozen times yesterday, but it seems she hasn't got the message! Today the door has been kept shut to try and encourage her to find a new cosy spot.
I had promised Teen Two a trip to Ikea for their bargain priced cooked breakfast ( £1.50..and take note PD, you can now buy toast for 30p)
My mother in law came along too, despite it being a very big shop and her being over 80, it's one place she does enjoy browsing round.
I was a little out of my comfort zone today though as they have redesigned everywhere, so I didn't know where anything was!
Teen Two found himself a cosy spot whilst we paid a visit to the ladies!
No trip to Ikea is complete without bringing home a bag of meatballs and cinnamon rolls!
We also love their squeezy mustard and mustard with dill.
I have very fond memories of Delrosa Rosehip Syrup as a child, so when I saw this today....
...I thought it was worth giving it a go and seeing if I could rekindle that delicious taste.
Sadly I was to be disappointed...it tasted of very little indeed.
Teen One has been at an all day training session, ahead of a new summer job, so as a little treat I bought her and hubby a box of Ikea's scrummy marshmallow cakes....
... but the translation is not so scrummy!
Dinner tonight is home made meatballs....just about to be browned off in my new pan! I think it was around £2, so good not to have everything sticking to the base.
Meatballs were made using pork mince, 2 apples, 3 cloves of garlic, dried sage, red onion, pinch of salt, all zuzzed up then rolled into balls. I sometimes add breadcrumbs as well.
They are now in the oven with a fresh tomato based pasta sauce, bought for 9p in the supermarket as the use by date was coming up!
I spent part of the afternoon giving Murphy his hair cut. I have to say I have dreaded this part, and am not happy with what I have done so far. His beard needs some more trimming, but I am giving it a break for the mo...unlike real beards, this will not grow back!
