Solo September update

DH is working today, he's been working all weekend so I have been left to my own devices.  Yesterday morning I spent catching up with household chores - yawn!  in the afternoon I took Max for a walk, picked up our loaf of bread - chilli bread this time.

I cut a slice of it when I got home and initially put just a crumb in my mouth and certainly got a chilli kick.  At first I thought it was going to be too hot and spicy for me but the actual slice of bread was delicious.

I spent an enjoyable couple of hours working on my Solo September project later in the afternoon and have almost completed one of the motifs.  I have just got to add some beads, a few stitches of white and the top two corners.

Here's how the whole project is looking.

We were invited for dinner as DS2's yesterday evening  and Vicky had cooked us a lovely roast beef dinner with all the trimmings with raspberry cheesecake for dessert. A wonderful relaxing evening and a great way to finish off the day.

Not sure what I will get up to today, there are lots of things calling to me it's just a case of what do I want to do most?
