I chose to try these challenges
- Read a book just for you
- Alter a recipe you frequently make
- Write down a quote and share it with a friend
This month I have been trying out a few new recipes and playing about with some I've used for a while so I wont bore you with these but I have been sometimes pleased, sometimes disappointed with my efforts. I haven't had to throw anything straight in the bin though, so I count that as a success.
The quote I chose to share came about because I bought a self inking stamp for £2.99 in LIDL. You can make your own words and phrases from letters provided in the pack. I chose
'All those who wander are not lost' Words from JRR Tolkein. I popped the letters into the stamp to make this phrase. It took a couple of attempts because I'm not so good at spelling backwards and mistook Q for O on account of my fortysomething eyesight. I stamped it on a card and drew a wee tree beside it. Well my friend loved it. It does suit her as you might think she is a bit lost but she does love to wander. She's now added it to her signatures on the forums she uses. I've been amazed at how pleased I was about the success of something so simple. I've picked February's challemges but it's a short month so I'd better get a push on it.
Thanks Daisy Yellow....
