knitting and leeks


if you caught my last blog you’ll get that reference. Have knitted two puffs this morning and for lunch there is roast chicken breast and buttered leeks. I’m quite obsessed with leeks at the moment – amazingly versatile and mean I don’t have to use onions. I use them in casseroles, have them buttered (chop leeks into inch thick slices, add a BIG dollop of butter, close the pan and simmer for an hour on a low heat), and I’ve used them in a lasagna instead of the pasta which works really well!

Bear with me, this blog–as promised–is likely to be dull: knitting, food, pets, TV, films for a while, but hoping that the mere use of the blog will spark something in my brain to get me able to open Word and have a look at the WIPs I have. I have at least 3, all of which I would really love to get cracking on, but my brain is so completely empty of writing it’s worrying. It’s like I’ve never written before, and when I do read something I’ve written I’m often baffled “did i REALLY write that? HOW?”

When they come to make a biopic of my life, this bit is going to be difficult to film. LOL.

I watched Interstellar the other day and was entirely baffled with it. Sadly, although it was 3 hours long I felt it actually rushed some moments which was ironic. It was really a film where I thought “there’s 3 hours I won’t get back.” I dare say it was hoping to be the 2001 Space Odyssey of its time but failed miserably in that respect. It was pretty much as baffling though and the robots were frankly silly–although quite useful — they would have all died pretty soon without them. Silly film and wish I hadn’t bothered with it.

Finally – if you use Dragon Cave could you breed some flamingos for me? Please?
