Making things

Today was a bit busy. After weeks of being quite, quite lazy, I got the bug and did things.

I made a fabulous Lemon Drizzle Cake.

The recipe comes from The Hairy Bikers' Mums Know Best book. It a nice a simple recipe and made a lovely, moist cake albeit one that looks a bit odd.

Then I sewed in the end, soaked then blocked a scarf that I made for my sister. When I say blocked I just pegged the scarf along the neck edge to the washing line and let it hang there. I'll write more on this tomorrow (possibly)

Then I made some Cheese Bites. Again from the Hairy Bikers' book. These were also successful and very more-ish, but a bit pale.

A day spent doing things but I'm still plagued by a twisted ankle so I can't get out and do as much as I want. I haven't run in over a week now and that is making me sad but I can't risk damaging more. I had hoped to be able to get back skating in September but now this looks increasingly unlikely so I suppose that it shall be another month before I'm back on my wheels.
