Today we had a training day at school. Which means that I got the day off. Either they think that I am beyond training, or else I'm so fantastic just as I am that I don't need any more. I'm opting for the second, although I feel it's more like the first!
So on my day off, what should I do? Well there's the ironing to do. The shopping to get. The tea to cook. The cakes to bake. The flowers to make. Oh sod it, let's make marmalade instead! I love making the stuff. I love eating it too. My mum makes jam (good job as I can't do that - it never seems to set) and I make marmalade and chutney. This is our favourite flavour, plain, simple, delicious! Especially when served on thick toast with butter.
I then had a guilt trip at not working hard enough, so ironed, hoovered, dusted (me? dusting? my family will be so proud!) shopped, cleaned, scrubbed etc.
Having done all that, I think I deserve a spot of knitting, don't you?
