I've been having a day off .I finished all the wee bits for the doll .Decided before I get back into the Highland Cattle and all the other stuff I've got going I'd have a day with nothing to do .Went up to a wee outside market and puttered around .Came home and did some wee craft things that really don't take any effort and helps me relax ( needed a wee fix ) cooked chicken on my indoor grill and now I'm on here .As someone else said "Tomorrow is another day " I'll pick up my stitching and go again .I'm going to try and finish it for my daughters birthday Dec 7th .
How ye doin' Ron ,and Inga?
maryhillgal
Toerag - try and get ham bones/ribs or a ham hoch [don't know if that's how you spell it] or if you are really stuck try ham stock cubes. Bring your bones/ribs,hoch/ham joint to the boil and then let it simmer away for a few hours. Steep your lentils and split peas overnight [I always add split peas but if you don't want to then don't add them] then dice up your carrot, turnip and leek [potato is optional]. Bring to the boil then simmer until all the vegetables are soft. I leave it to cool and then put it through the blender. You can sprinkle with parsley [optional also].

Sometimes I buy a nice ham or gammon joint for boiling and the stock from it gives you a great pot of soup also. If it is smoked ham then I bring it to the boil, chuck out the water and boil it again because the first boiling is very salty.

Hope this helps you.
maryhillgal
P.S. Made my lentil soup but didn't get the run to Loch Lomond as the weather wasn't good. Maybe next weekend.

Have tae get intae the grind today been procastinating sad.gif need tae make some money for Buffalo next week.
maryhillgal
Aw the best Stuarty wae yer breast screening. I am going to the Western Infirmary today to see the 'hip man.' [Orthopaedics]. I was offered injections before but turned them down [I have bursitis in my hips]. I think today I will opt to have the injections as I am sick of the pain and the amount of sleep I lose because of it. I hope they work. I was reluctant to have them because they are steroid injections and I already take steroids for polymyalgia in my shoulders plus I have to take booster dozes of them when I get a chest infection. I'm not complaining because there are people a helluva lot worse than me but I hate putting stuff into my body because of side effects. Steroids help some things but cause a lot of others [weight gain, thinning of skin etc to name but two]. Anyway, as the song goes "Always look on the bright side of life!!"
glasgow lass
Aye MG,,,, ah'll dae that ferr yi hen ,,,,,, but it'll cost yi, whit will it cost yi ask( tongue.gif ) well lets say a few bags of mah goodies that aha buy in Buffalo stashed in yir trunk,,, and if yi get caught ,,, yi dont know me ,,, deal hen laugh.gif
Heather
Stuarty I don't envy, you as Breast Screening is painful but necessary.

I decided to start putting up the winter curtains today. Started on the sitting room and wore myself out as the curtains are very heavy, lined and double width as our downstairs windows are almost 8feet wide.. Of course I had to wash the windows again, as you can't put clean curtains up on dirty windows. smile.gif

Getting the valance/ pelmet even is annoying, and makes me wish for the days we had wooden pelmets. I put fancy clips on mine to give them a scalloped shape and because it looks nice. laugh.gif
