I slept in.  Till 9.30 in fact.
Steve and Bex fed the dogs for me too, which was lovely.

Today's plans?
Grocery shopping is top of the list.
We have my Aunt and Uncle coming for dinner tonight, so I want to cook something nice.

Just not sure what yet.  If I can get my hands on some pork belly I will do that, but somehow I doubt we will find any on a weekend.

I started work on a UFO last night, I am determined to get all of them finished by end of year.  In fact, there's not many left!

Anyway, this is what I'm working on again:

ABOVE:   The Beach Babes. I'd started doing the applique stitch around everything, then about 1/3rd of the way along I realised I'd not put the batting behind it.  I got really crabby because I'd have to go over it all again, so put it aside.

Last night I did the re-stitching, and it wasn't even that hard.  Derrrr.

I think I should be able to finish this little project in a day or two.

So... there ya go.  A post for the day, just late.

Shopping done.  Now busy tidying up the house, and I'm about to make a Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert.

ABOVE:  Something is happening.   My Britto has been taken out of the cabinet...

ABOVE:  LOOK AT THAT!!!  Steve and Bex got me special lighting strips for my Britto cabinet, as my Birthday Present!

For dinner tonight I cooked 3 chickens, had with roast potatoes and lettuce salad.  It was just lovely.
I also made a Lemon Meringue pie, well I made two actually.
I took a smaller one over to my neighbours as they had given me the lemons.  They were rather happy about that.

My Aunt Ethel had just got out of hospital yesterday, so she was pretty tired tonight, but they still came for dinner.  It was her first proper meal in a few days too.

She did well I must say.  She's a tiny little woman, but can still eat a good meal.
Uncle Frank fell asleep after dinner and had to be prodded to go home!  *smiles*

He's not used to having a big dinner followed by dessert... it knocked him out.  

They have just left, so it's tidy up and relax for a little while before bedtime.

End of Day:  a lovely day... even with grocery shopping thrown in the mix.
