Time and Time again...

I cannot quite work out why I never have time, I do my shopping and banking ect online so i'm not popping out so much and spending hours trawling the shopping center, We don't watch TV and my young adults help with the housekeeping, I work about 2 mile away from home and I'm finished by 2pm but I never seem to have free time to blog or catch up with online goings on!!

Anyhow yesterday I decided I needed to make some more shower gel but for the life of me it just would not work correctly I checked double checked then got the OH to check but hours later it was still cooking I gave up after another 4 hours my poor crock pot needed a break. The resulting soap lathers well but wont hold a bubble and is not clear umm!!!! Well i'll leave it sequester and see how it goes but I dont have high hopes for it...

Its been a busy week as it is since I have been covering for the cook at work while she is on her holiday but still managed to fit in a night away in norfolk and a kite festival at the weekend since my ball tickets somehow got lost and I couldnt get anymore...

This week has been a strange one due to it being the anniversary of my sisters death last year that was yesterday which probaly accounts for the terrible cake i made at work and the way the gel turned out, thats why i asked someone else to check the measurements my mind was a little of balance. Funny how things go that way when your pre-occupied.

Today I'm going to make chocolate cupcake soaps just for the hell of it and since my family are all cupcaked out with the mega baking i've been doing! I'm thinking mad colors since I have some new colors to work with I'll post pictures when I get chance.

Hopefully if there is still light I can go in the field behind me and fly my new stunt kite which has already been crashed more times than flown..

Opps time running out again ...
