Day 69

This is the day I’ve known for a while would have to happen – it’s time for me to integrate this blog, with my original one.

Some time soon, it will all be happening within my original website, revamped and revved up, but the first stage is to ask all of you lovely people, if you wouldn’t mind reading this in future on the other blog.

I’ll put the link at the end and in the first few days of the changeover I’ll remind you with a daily post on here.

I still plan to keep this up, but it’s bonkers to being doing it on a separate blog when I already have one well established.

I only started this one as an experiment, but it’s turned out to be so enjoyable, I want to carry on, so I hope in future you’ll carry on reading (and commenting, I love your comments) in the other place.

So for Day 69, please click on this:


Day 68

IMG_4103Today was a good doing day.

I got on with lots of things I needed to do, like wrapping up an important present, then making it into a satisfying parcel and taking it to the post office.

I wrote a thing I’ve been thinking about for a thing it and I was happy with how it came out and sent it off to the person. I hope the thing happens.

I walked past my lovely local pub (the previously mentioned Crown) and noticed they were having a Christmas craft bee.

I discovered the crosswords on The Hoopla web site and have immediately become obsessed with them. The great thing is it tells you how quickly you’ve done it. There is nothing like being in competition with myself to get me fired up.

I lit the fire.

I made a chicken pie, including the puff pastry (thank you Nigella Lawson for the brilliant food processor puff pastry recipe, I never buy frozen now). This is the last one I made, but it was the same deal.

My husband and daughter ate the whole thing.

I went to a meeting of the campaign group I’m on, called Save Ecclesbourne Glen.

It was a really good meeting, with three great new committee members who are bringing a lot of brilliant new ideas to the cause. I left feeling quite optimistic we might be able to put this disaster right.

I’ve got a lot to do tomorrow as well and I’m looking forward to cracking on with it all. Doing is living.
