Saturday Morning

Today I have mostly been...






making jam and chutney.......
And I think I have finally sussed the setting point thing - my blackberry and apple jam is the perfect consistency!!!!
I also made the easiest marmalade ever, courtesy of Nigella as was the chilli jam....and beetroot and orange chutney, which no doubt will only get eaten by me lol!!
ooh and Cath finally sent me her latest catalogue and she sent one to my lovely husband, clever lady!! I have helped him out by circling one or 2 things, I'm such a good wife :)
We have been away from home so much the past couple of months it was lovely just to potter, I wore my Grandmas pinny and I even cleaned and sewed.
I wish I could be this motivated all week, if I was I could probably run the country!!!

You have been a busy bee .... I'd end up eating most of it here too and sometimes just have a jam butty instead of dinner if I'm not too hungry. Glad those labels came in handy too. By the time you read this I hope you made lots at the booty this morning.

Wow! Those preserves look fab! Wish I was brave enough to do that. Maybe I should this summer. I always get scared when I see the sugar measurement.
