So my Granny would say - well I may still be wearing warm clothing, but I'm casting my "cloots oot" on the washing line in between showers! The joys of a Scottish Spring
Another thing I keep doing until "May is oot" , is cook soup - I have another pot of Butternut surprise soup (the surprise is the ginger root that is added, but the boys don't know that!) The sun may be shining, but there is a nip in that wind!
I try to cook healthily, and one of my favourite recipes just now is from a book called "Low Fat goes Luscious!" - its a creamy curried fish dish (farmed organic cod from Shetland!), and is wonderful , even junior eats it.
I tend to be a bit generous with the curry powder (loooove curry!) , so my fish looks a bit more colourful than the one in the book ! I also make too much sauce .
But in case you get the idea that I'm a health freak , here is what I had for lunch today - a nice fry up! I do come from the country that gave the world the deep fried Mars Bar, and Irn Bru ! (And no, I have never had deep fried Mars Bar, nor do I intend to!) And as for Irn Bru - it goes down nicely with Fish and Chips.
In between hanging out the laundry (the rain has stopped so I may hang it out again before the next shower !) I have been weeding my garden. No planting as yet, I have the previous owners to thank for what plants we have with the exception of my lemon balm . Trying to catch the little caterpillars and slugs that love the garden is a more difficult occupation.
Its lovely to get comments,thank you to all who have commented over the last few posts. I had a giggle when I re-read Nan's comment - with two small children I treasure sleep the most ! (and hubby was working)
