This was our day todayFirst I had to drop the dogs at the Dog Parlour around 8.30am for their 6 weekly wash and trim. Claire came with me so that I could then go straight in to town and she could be at work by 9. I needed to go to SpecSavers to sort out my contact lens prescription. I wasn't over impressed when I ended up waiting nearly 3/4 hour only for it to be suggested that I go in for another contact lens assessment next week. Until I get the lenses sorted out I can't do anything about my glasses either!
Back from town and it was time to catch up on the never ending ironing. Fortunately I could watch an episode of ER while I was doing it which makes it go much quicker.
I had to take Hugh for a Physio appointment at Queen Victoria hospital at 12 and pick him up again at 1 - which gave me enough time to come home and make lunch for when he got back.
After lunch I made some lemon cupcakes from a recipe I hadn't tried before. They turned out well but I resisted trying one until tea time this afternoon ;)
Back to pick up the, now clean, dogs from the Dog Parlour. Cloud was getting frustrated in this photo because I told her to sit while I took it and she just wanted to come and see me ;) - Wallace is sitting at the back in his own little world!
Soon after we got back, Emily arrived home from school. I'd made one cupcake into a butterfly cake (with the wings made from the top of the sponge - I'm sure you know what I'm talking about!) One of those was enough so I let Emily have that one and the rest are iced normally ;).
I did a quick vacuum and tidy up before sitting down to have a cup of tea and, the aforementioned, cupcake. Even if I say so myself, they are very tasty - but then I LOVE lemon cupcakes :)
I had time to edit some photos before making dinner. Short order chef tonight ;)
I've also written up my daily tag and printed the photo for it (can you guess which one I used?). I can't believe I'm still up to date with this. I love the format, makes it seem so much more manageable.
Time to dish up dinner and if I can hog the TV, I might even be able to watch another episode (or 2) of ER
Enjoy your evening.
