parties, bugs, readings and soup

Last Sunday was my niece's fifth birthday party and I went along to help (although I am not sure how much help I was..).  I did manage to pick up the stomach bug that was going round the five year olds like wildfire and therefore had Tuesday off work to lie and shiver a bit on the sofa.  Last night we went to Susie Wild's reading of her new Kindle 'single' Arrivals... (I just nipped over to Susie's blog to get a link, and found out that she had already linked to me! ha!) and today I went on a course to learn how to be a scribe. Unfortunately we didn't look like this at the end...

Then I had to do a bit of shopping for playdough ingredients for children in work. Our theme for next week is money - what colour should my playdough be? grey? green? yellow?

And now I've just made soup, hurray!

It's carrot and coriander with a bit of smoked paprika on the top.
My recipe is just to fry an onion in olive oil for a few minutes and add a little sugar and soy sauce.
Add chopped carrots (think I used about 8 large carrots) and one clove of garlic and let it sweat for a little while.
Add a bit of turmeric and stock and cook until carrots are soft.
Then blend it with a nice bunch of fresh coriander and add some soy milk too until you get your desired consistency. yumarama.

    I’m just sending out a quick message to let people know their Faith Hope and Charity Swapping partners. Days of spreedsheet fiddling I tell you, if this works it’s going on my CV! I won’t have access to a PC from Tues 31st until June 6th – so any questions will have to wait til I get back I’m afraid. I’m going to put up a quick post on the rules before I go, but for now you can check out your partner’s blog and start figuring out what they might like.
    Your swap partner is Bibbitybob
    Thanks for playing along!


hello! so nice to hear from you...
