Last Friday's flowers are unusual, they are metal daisies with little green brads that you can put in the centre, or not, as you choose. I like them, which probably means I will save them for a while! I still haven't used up my most recent flowers, I have been decorating boxes and doing some layouts, and the colours just haven't worked. When I was in Scotland I started crocheting a mini tortoise, which I still haven't finished and is this week's project, that and the Ipod holder that I want so that I can bring my Ipods on walks with my pocketless trousers. Why don't women's trousers ever have pockets?
I am still going on with the GL eating, I don't miss tea and coffee at all now, and I was standing at a muffin stand this morning with my daughter, getting her some lunch (not a muffin!) and I didn't feel an urge for any coffee and cakes like I used to do. It's quite liberating in many ways, not to be in the grip of a caffeine urge. The diet uses seeds and nuts quite a lot, and as you need to grind seeds before you eat them I decided to dig out my mortar and pestle from the back of the cupboard. Yes, it was one of those things that I got as a present and then never really used at all. I never threw it out, because I actually like the look of it, and because it was a pressie, and because I always hoped I would get round to using it more one day. And so I have! It is perfect for grinding linseeds, those annoying little tiny seeds that do horrible things to your digestive system if you eat them whole. I will try sesame seeds next!
Soooo.......which bit is the mortar then? :D
