Huzzah I made a new pud...even better it was a simple pimple recipe that could all be done in the microwave and I was able to use a good old dollop of the lemon curd that I had made in the slowcooker a few days before. Recipe from here if you want to make a dessert and are short on time or just after a quick fix like me! http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5598/fastestever-lemon-pudding
Any type of cooking that requires minimal effort gets a huge tick in my book. I saw a t-shirt once that read "If God had wanted me to cook why did he invent restaurants?!" That could have been specially designed for me.
I have started "Blood Mistletoe" by Ronald Hutton...ok so I've only read the first 17 pages [I have to get my brain in gear and concentrate] but it's a modest start.
For me personally there's some rather good news on my recovery front as the dosage of my chuckle pills has been decreased with no adverse effect. I am taking it very slowly and monitoring the situation but the greatest weapon in my arsenal against the Black Dog is ensuring I get enough rest. A Nana nap in the afternoon is working a treat and I "seem" to have got past my raised anxiety when dancing in public which in turn has increased my confidence and I've loosened up a bit. I've also joined this site http://makemejoyful.com/blog/and found this story on Lovely Grey Day's blog really struck a positive chord. http://lovelygreyday.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/saving-starfish.html Panic ye not though I'm not about to go all airy fairy on you and start channelling Pollyanna. I am far too fond of my crotchety old inner crone and far too long in the tooth to abandon her!
