Resolution soup...


Leek and Potato soup from a few nights ago, hot and steamy so the lens kept clouding over...


With Stilton and Caraway scones. And my huge 'Swamp rat stew' ladle that Mr F made me for last years birthday! Its funny because these savoury scones are equally as good with soup or jam.

And now to the resolution part of the post...
As my blog is my online diary or doings, and as fun for me to look back on as it is to actually write the entries in the present, I shall make my list of things to come. I can then look at them at the end of the year and see what I achieved (or didnt! ).  Warning... this may be boring to read as its mainly meant for me!

2012 Aspirations (real and fantasy)...
  • Spend less time on the computer AND try where possible to only switch on after lunch or even better in the evenings.
  • Remind myself to smile more often... should take this for granted BUT as I get older I have noticed that I smile less... not good at all...
  • As so many of my hobbies, like knitting and reading, involve sitting on my bum I must get out more... try to cycle every day and aim to be able to cycle to friends house 3 miles away without needing an ambulance waiting for me at the other end...
  • Spend more time cooking on an open fire when the weather permits...
  • Garden more...
  • Decorate the spare room for Littlest and help her to move...
  • Then redecorate and shelf the new spare room for me!!! FILL IT WITH WOOL... Put my little armchair in there and my spare radio and HIDE in there sometimes with a tray of tea and Radio 4 and my knitting... 
  • Buy black and white checked lino and put it down in the Bathroom.
  • Paint the bathroom white... sick of bright yellow... Its like washing inside a banana...
  • Aim to use at least 50% of my leather stocks by making lots and lots of bags...
  • Make a pair of boots with fairies on... plan to experiment with T shirt transfer paper and natural veg tan, touched up with metallic acrylics for the wings.
  • Grow proper feathered wings in white and fly out over the woods...
  • Reach 1000 sales on Etsy before 31st December next year.
  • Give more money to charity.
  • Make time to make myself new Quinces and a new pair of tall boots. There's a pair in my head called GATEKEEPER. They've been in there for 2 years and its time I let them out...
  • Do my accounts on a daily / monthly basis to save needing a week at the end of the tax year, not to mention at least 600 tea bags to get me through the week...
  • Aim to make at least 50 hats for the knitwear shop!
  • Aim to increase my button output for the knitwear shop and have at least 50 cards of buttons in stock at any given time... 
  • Do my ironing monthly as opposed to seasonally...  Im not joking... its that bad!
  • Experiment with chutney recipes more this coming Autumn.
Well... I think thats enough to be getting on with...
