This weekend is the beginning of the school holidays in New Zealand. The Scout and Mr J are in Cambridge helping my father in law move hay. Miss B and I spent Saturday with her Scout Troop doing a sausage sizzle to help fund raise for the Scout Jamboree in Fielding at the end of the year. Luckily the day was beautiful and fine.
I have a fabulous pile of new library books to work my way through - currently I am reading Almost Amish, all about simplifying and slowing down your life. Very thought provoking.
I have been the lucky recipient of lots of lemons and grapefruit, so on Sunday I made a up some Lemon Curd and then tried a new recipe for the grapefruit - Ginger Grapefruit Curd. The ginger taste isn't as strong as I thought it would be, possibly because I used crushed fresh ginger from a jar. Miss B and I still enjoyed it on toast with a cup of tea for lunch.
Some sewing got done too. A little purse which will attach to your key ring. Great for when you don't want to take a full wallet or bag with you. It will fit a drivers license and small amount of cash in it.
