However this unplanned weekend at home did mean that I could finally get round to completely a few tasks from my to-do list.
First of which was making a batch of green tomato chutney. Despite a bumper crop of tomatoes this year very few have ripened. Thought I'd be clever and make a double batch - was a minor panic that the pan was going to be too small but it fitted with an inch or so too spare.
Had 18 clean jars waiting to be filled - used 17 of them. A good bit of guess work on my part.
The next task to get to get ticked off the list was to use up all the sloes we picked the other weekend and turn them into some warming for the winter months ahead. I think 1.5 litres will keep us going!
Final task was to finish making a card for my nieces birthday - I'd taken the photo ages ago - it just needed mounting and some birthday trimming round the edge. Am quite pleased with it - the whole card making thing is new to me and so far the results have been very well received.
Thats all for today - tomorrow something special is happening - we are finally getting a new bed. Might even share some photos with you ;)
