Will the Prime Minister resign, or wont he? It is looking very dodgy at the moment. He has announced that he does not want to be head of a coalition government, yet isn't that what is being set up? I'm a bit confused, but probably nothing like as confused as those people who are trying to sort out the Greek economy.

I was up with the church bells this morning. And I did make my biscuits. Life has to go on, and we have to have our little treats.
David went to the land to chop a tree down for firewood. It should just have dried out enough by the time the real cold weather comes in January/February.

I got the cooking bug once the biscuits were out of the oven, and went on to make a veggie lasagna and a pork and apple dish. It's been one of those homely days. The sun was really warm in our back yard, so I sat out there and did a spot of reading, one of Ian Rankin's detective stories. All in all a lovely Sunday!

I hope you have had a great weekend, follow me tomorrow, it's workout day and we may have a new Prime Minister. Love Jane x
