Hello! I've returned from Wales!
I haven't done a huge amount of anything this week, at least, not since
getting back from Wales on Tuesday evening. It's made it a bit of a funny sort
of week since I only had three days before it was the weekend again. Even though
I've been pretty tired from all the travelling, I could easily get used to
I'll tell you all about what I did in Wales tomorrow.
Except for one thing.
Last Monday my Mum taught me how to make Welsh cakes. They're like flat
scones and are cooked on a griddle (or frying pan). They are incredibly more-ish
and I defy anyone to make a batch without eating a fair number of them before
Well, yesterday I decided it was time to teach Mr Click how to make them. I'd
brought some home with me from the batch we'd made for the picnic, but they were
over a day old by the time I shared them, and they'd spent at least ten hours
squashed into a bag in my backpack.
Mr Click procured all the ingredients, as well as a few other necessities
(like a sieve and a rolling pin) which we didn't actually own until this week.
He even got us aprons.
And so we got to work on them yesterday morning. Having made them under
direction previously, I took charge and got everything going. There was a slight
moment of worry when my mixture was very sticky and didn't seem to be coming
together into a sort of dough, but a bit of flour soon solved that.
The first six we made were a little bit too well-done, but we figured out we
should turn the temperature of the hob down slightly and the other thirty-eight
came out beautifully. We ate about about eight of them before we'd even finished
I'm yet to pick up my knitting again since I got back. I've played around
with crochet a little bit, but I've also been doing more colouring in (something
I'll be getting back to once I've done all my blog posts for the week). I bought
a couple of colouring books while I was away and I've been feeling a bit too
tired of an evening to concentrate on my Nativity scene, so colouring in is nice
and relaxing busy work.
Oh, and one other momentous even happened this week. I reached the last page
of my book journal. I started it on January 1st last year. Back in March I
realised I was getting near the end of my current one, so bought a new one. It's
just taken me a little longer than I expected to get to the end. This one's got
more pages so I imagine it'll keep me going until around 2017!
I'm getting caught up on blog stuff again now as well, so expect to see some
more regular posts from me again.
