I gave housework a go!

I know!!
(don't panic just yet, this won't happen again for while!!)
I stand a good chance at taking out the 2014 title for...

Well I am pretty sure I have
Mother of the Year
in the bag
after my efforts over the weekend
just gone!!
(see yesterdays post)

I went to Bunnings
(garden centre/man shop)
and bought
for my garden.
Instant Colour!!

I had a box garden in dire need of a mini make over.
Full of bulbs resting until Spring
now going to be covered
in Calandula, Viola, Lobellia, and Lupine.
All planted, watered, and ready to continue blooming!
Must do the other side now.

I do like
in my world!!

Then I baked!!

Two very delicous
Beetroot Seed Cakes.
(if you want the recipe, just google Beetroot Seed Cake by Nigel Slater)

Nah! Housework is mundane stuff like dusting, sweeping and ironing. You're creating, far cooler and much more fun! x

I must be the last person on earth not to have baked with beetroot. After seeing your lovely cakes, I am convinced more than ever it needs to happen.

Such beautiful flowers too.

I am still cracking up at the photo of your dog and cat with the praying mantis in the last post. They look so serious as they stand there considering it. I don't know why it makes me laugh so much, but I can't stop looking at it.

Housework? Ugh, pain in the arse, and so damn pointless. Planting flowers and making cakes? FAR more useful and enjoyable! xxx

No no ... housework is scrubbing toilets and soap scum off shower screens. This kind of activity comes under the banner of domestic goddess.
