Hot cross buns. I love hot cross buns, and the best in the world come from Marks and Spencer. Jeana - you have to try them when you get here, and don't worry about it not being Easter by then. They are so good that M&S sell them all year round. Is this the only place on earth where you get hot cross buns all year??? It seems to be missing the point somewhere.
However. I love hot cross buns. Unfortunately I am the only one in residence who does, so it becomes my duty to eat the lot. And I am quite capable of rising to the challenge. Only problem is that the hips enter the "rising" bit with a little too much gusto too. And one cannot buy one hot cross bun. Good grief - one would never be enough. Of course not. And wasting food goes against the grain. I am trying to be both green and frugal. Forget the green bit - the birds are absolutely not going to get my HCBs either. Sigh. You may detect a note of greed and possessiveness at this point.
I just felt I should share the fact that I am carbo-loading for the second day in a row. At least I didn't eat the lot on Good Friday. It would have been entirely too possible.
I saw a few flakes of snow an hour ago, and they were less than impressive, but it is supposed to snow all day so we wait with baited breath. Here in the UK, snow is a novelty. My sister, on the other hand, is sick of the white stuff. Icy wind and grey skies do not feel like Spring though.
The sewing is progressing well, and so far I am pleased with the way all three are developing. Each has to reflect the individual child, and as I said, the construction of the top is the easy part. What happens next is the fun bit, and this is the part which takes forever. Kate and her friend Yuka popped in yesterday and suggested that they should be wall hangings instead of quilts, and that made me think some more. Maybe for one of the kids. Or 2. Or not. The size would change then. But I could use more mixed media if it was not going to be washed regularly like a quilt. Or not. Hmmm. I may have to lie on the couch a while and ponder options.
Or simply ask the kids what they want. I have only had one cup of coffee. My mind is taking time to catch up here.
