It was hard to get up this morning. I was in heaven snuggled up with my lovely Johnny. When I finally made myself emerge from my nest I discovered that it wasn't the kind of day for riding Zanny, so I had a shower, chatted to Mumsy on the phone, made a cup of tea then headed into my workroom for some focused crafting time. Of course I had the usual company.
Look what I got today! My very first pair of Converse All Stars in a very pleasing tone called Greener Pastures. I am after a pair of spotty navy ones, but when I tried these ones on to try to work out my size before ordering some online, I had to keep them. They were on sale too. They feel like a pair of slippers because they are super comfy. I will wear them with socks and my jeans. Johnny said I really need to get some special innersoles for my flat feet, because they have no support. That sounds like an expensive and complicated operation. Sigh.
Anyway, Johnny needed to buy trackpants so wanted to go to Dressmart (yes, strange). He got the trackpants, plus the cutest pair of bright red Puma sneakers, and I got my All Stars and two undertops, one in black and cream stripes and the other in red and white stripes. I actually wanted navy and white so that I could wear it under my blue cardies. Nope. None anywhere.
By the time we'd finished a good look around the shops Johnny was actually feeling a lot better (miracle). We got a small lamb roast and I cooked it up with pumpkin, parsnip, yams, kumara, and yams, plus a pot of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. Yes, eight veges! The roast had garlic, thyme and rosemary studded on it. Fantastic. We don't do a roast very often, but I think we will have to change our ways. I love the idea of a family roast at the weekend, even if it is just the two of us.
