my library that is. This morning I thought I would go into the local town to the market and the library before I went to do my shop in Aldi. I have a passion for cookery books so had a good rummage among the shelves and chose these,
Hopefully find a few new ideas for daughter No3 to have for lunch. She hates lunches so I shall give her the book to look through and write down anything which grabs her : )
I also got this one to get more ideas for homemade Christmas gifts.
I also got this cookery book.
I have only read the introduction so far whilst eating my lunch but what an inspirational woman Sally Bee is. She had 3 heart attacks in one week at the age of 36. It was found that she had a rare heart condition and was not expected to live but she is still here and lives her life as healthy as she can to hopefully prolong her life. I hope to get a lot of inspiration from her recipes to better our health because I know I could do better than I am at the moment.
So I intend to get back into using my library on a regular basis. I tried to scan the books to take them out and the machine kept telling me I could not take the books and to go to the desk. It's been so long since I last went to the library my card needed updating. We all really should use our libraries more or we could end up loosing them.
We went last week when it was bank holiday Monday to the market in the local town and I got some good deals on fruit and veg so returned today to see what bargains I could get on the veg stall. I got 2 punnets of strawberries, 2 large punnets of seedless grapes, large cauliflower and 2lb of Jersey Royals all for £4.10 which I was really pleased with. I have found a market stall that sells embroidery threads, felt and ribbon at a fraction of the cost in the shops. So I shall be making a regular trip to that stall when in need of materials. There was a fab bakers stall with breads and cakes but steered clear of that one. A big down fall of mine is bread and have been limiting myself on the amount I now consume .
