Baking in the Cottage Kitchen

Day off today!

We had been invited to Gail and Rod's for dinner tonight.  They had kindly offered to pick us up. 

I suggested to Chris that we should have a day off today. He agreed but I knew he would be still doing jobs. Pottering he called it. Fair enough. 

I was going to have a leisurely shower and hair wash, do some knitting and make some flapjacks. 

After my shower I did a bit of cleaning in Harvey J and the cottage but nothing too energetic!

I found Chris pottering with an angle grinder cutting off some dangerous bolts that were sticking up. 

Max had decided it was going to be a day off every day....snoozing....

......and peering out of the window (after exploring the barn of course!)

After lunch I finished the second sleeve of my knitted jumper. 

All parts have been knitted now so the next stage is the neck band and then sewing it altogether. 

Mid afternoon and I made some flapjacks in the cottage kitchen.

 It was so nice to do some baking in here. It made it feel so homely. 

We had a lovely meal at Gail and Rod's. It was a treat to dress up for an evening out!

It's a real treat also to have your company. Thank you for all your lovely comments.
