Porridge is my nemesis!

Does anyone else find porridge annoying and difficult to make??
Today I resolved that I won't make it again for at least 6 months. Aside from the fact that the weather is warming up here and it won't be the right cereal for breaky for a while , I am convinced all its nasty spilling over in the microwave ads a new grey hair to my head every time .
So for the sake of a healthy mind I am giving it up, not sure my GP will approve ( he likes me to eat as much cholesterol absorbing fibre as I can bear) but hopefully by next winter I can work out how to make it more neatly and appreciate it more.

Now off to get on with the day so I can sew sew sew all afternoon :)

School Holiday Sewing drought!

How are all of you going with the school holidays?

I always find my sewing suffers over the holidays, outings and adventures and sleep-ins always eke away whatever small time I might have set aside to sew. Not that I am complaining, just saying that the family are more important in many ways and sometimes they need my time a little more than my beloved janome... Never mind, next week the little ones go back to school and I will once again enjoy the the sound of my lovely sewing machine and the cups of uninterrupted tea with Jo as we prepare our goodies for the Callington show, yes we are setting up our first market stall!

I can't wait to see how our lovely handmade goods are recieved!

I hope you are all enjoying the school holidays!
