Drawing in

It's been quiet since my last post. Snuggling in is now my favourite activity: work hard all day then come home, cook comfort food - roasted vegetables, Hungarian goulash, spaghetti and tomato sauce - and then settle in with my husband, an interiors magazine and the TV. A lot of early nights - by 9 I'm shattered. I haven't even been bothered to switch on the computer. We spent the weekend with my parents at their home in Norfolk. My mother's knee operation was a success and though her full recovery will take a little more time, she happily fussed over us and cooked us lamb, minced beef and cauliflower curries. I am sure this Saturday will be activity filled: browsing furniture and computers, visiting a gallery or two, perhaps a movie. But I am also sure Sunday will be as chilled as can be. The house purchase is moving along. Many forms have been filled out and signed and posted. We're just waiting for the surveyor's report now. Not much we can do until then. Well, sleeeeep of course...

Have been missing your posts...all this snuggling, craving of comfort food, tiredness....is there something you want to share?

Hehe@Southways.

You're just settling in for the hibernation period, aren't you?

You'll need it, before all the disruption of moving, shopping, decorating, and resettling.

Roasted vegetables -- just what I was thinking of doing. Any idea how to roast pumpkin so it tastes truly delicious? My reputation with 6+ people depends on it! BB

SW, Olivia - Yes winter hibernation has alot to do with it. If the sale goes well, we'll be very busy so I may as well make the most of peace and quiet while I can!

BB, a lovely thing to do with pumpkin in winter is to roast it in the oven then blend it into stock to make a creamy soup with creme fraiche and serve topped with toasted pine nuts and lots of crusty bread.
