It started off really quite chilly so decided to get my inside jobs done first, have lunch and then head outside.
I got my bread started and I am now proving it over the Rayburn instead of in the conservatory. Two loaves baked later with one going in the freezer and one for the bread bin.
I decided to use the last of the apples before they spoilt so set to having a bash at using my preserving equipment, along with the Kilner jars I bought with my birthday money by making some apple sauce.
I had a little bit of trouble with my first try at Apple Cider Vinegar so I used the peelings etc from the apple sauce and had another bash; this looks better already.
It turned out yummy and there is enough for lunch today, too.
After lunch I got myself out to the veg patch and planted the onions sets! Finally! I nearly gave up half way through thinking I'd finish them off today beause I knew I would be aching this morning. But I battled on and I'm really pleased that I did; the patch is really coming along now and I only have to take the last swede and turnips out and then I can prepare that part of the space for the Spring.
Talking of today this was the sight Jon pointed out which greeted us at the bottom kitchen window around 7am, gorgeous!
Well I've changed Alfie's bed, dusted the boys' rooms, mopped the floors in the bathroom and our bedroom, made pastry for a pie for tea and as soon as the Rayburn is up to temp I shall get that in along with some lemon muffins that are half ready to go; it is nearly lunch time so will finish this here.
Bye for now.
