The house search has been postponed until this snowy and wintry weather is out of the way and conditions improve for travelling. I feel a bit in limbo at the moment; I’m not very good at waiting.
Paul and Rick went to school this morning so I decided to play good little housewife and do some baking. I made a batch of cookies for the freezer and then made the easiest soup in the world. (Chop an onion and some garlic, fry it for a few minutes before adding 2 tins of tomatoes, 1 tin of lentils, 1 tablespoon of tomato puree, pinch of thyme and 2 pints of stock. Simmer for ten minutes and then give it a whiz with the blender.)
I then got carried away and made some cheese scones to go with the soup. I shouldn’t have bothered, they were a bit doughy and claggy. I’ll stick with bread rolls from the baker in future.
