Here's a great hint...totally off topic, I know...but you'll see why.....
When buying tomato plants, choose your punnets wisely....I found this six pack of tomatoes....with different varieties.....but instead of 6 plants....it has 16....all repotted now into the next sized pots...and all growing healthy.....

Then its off to Bulli to support hubby while he goes for a Coal Board Medical. This will help improve his chances of getting a mining job...It's proving very hard to get into the mines, as it seems it's "not what you know, but who you know"....Yesterday hubby was told that a man he works with has just gotten employment at a local mine.....and this man has no qualifications, no underground mining certificate, no heavy machinery experience, no First Aid Certificate.... Nothing! But this man DOES have, a brother-in-law in the mining industry, who got him a job within two weeks of him asking for one.
It's sooooo frustrating!! I know that hubby will pass with flying colours today in his medical.....and I am proud of him for taking all the necessary steps to get closer into the mining industry.
I'm not bothering with housework today, I'm not even putting it on my list..If I get to it, I get to it.....I have a list of things I need to make or bake over the weekend.....and that's what I will concentrate on for now...I know I will have my hands full again, once I pick mum up from day surgery this afternoon..........
Here's my weekend list of things I would like to make.....
- Make washing powder
- Make yoghurt
- Make a baked fruit swirl using the two ingredient dough recipe...Brilliant!
- Make sour cream
- Make pancakes for lunch on Saturday.
|Because of the larger jars, the lid doesn't fit correctly|
But easily rectified ....after putting the ill-fitting lid on
Wrap a foil 'cummerbund' around the whole machine.
then cover with a towel, turn it on and leave to set overnight.
UPDATE: Mum's knee operation has been cancelled by the hospital.
