Sorting out my nest....
Why is it, that after a week or two away, I’m immediately bitten by the homemaking bug on my return. I’m sure it’s an instinct arising from ‘sorting out your nest’.
Cookery books have come out and new recipes tried. Hmmm… particularly from a cook book given to me by my daughter-in-law, called a ‘Culinary Tour of Switzerland’. Lovely, lovely book, its not only packed with delicious regional recipes, its beautifully illustrated with superb photographs and gives tons of interesting info’ about Swiss traditions past and present. As you can see, I haven’t quite shaken off the Swiss dust yet.
I’ve also re-arranged a little wooden shelf unit in my kitchen to display a few egg cups that I bought whilst away, plus some little folksy wooden and twiggy decorations. Carol’s blog has to take the credit for that inspiration.
Decided also, to dress the French doors that lead from the sitting room out onto the terrace. As yet, I haven’t decided on what curtain fabric I want to use, so in the meantime, with the aid of three single white cotton sheets and about 6 pins, I have ‘erected’ what you can see in the picture. I think its quite good, however, I may change the lacy bit that gives shape to the pelmet.
