Busy day today; meant to do one or two jobs at home but got side-tracked into tidying up the storehouse that is scattered on top of my kitchen cupboards. I started off by standing on a chair, shouldn’t have I know, but the chairs are sturdy and balanced. As I climbed about on work surfaces shifting things so I could clean, hubby who had been semi-occupied with hobby things, saw me and was moved to help. ;D
So, I was free to put out the washing to dry on yet another nice dry warm day. I should have been out exploiting the weather and enjoying myself.
As things came into view that I haven’t thought about for years, I opened up the charity bag and filled it up. There were some aluminium baking trays I never used. They were meant for creating tray bakes for little sprog to take to primary school or for creations for fund raising events. I discovered I had a springform cake tin. It must have been well hidden, it wasn’t exactly tiny. I can’t remember when I last used that, unless it was the time I made a chocolate chip birthday cake. That was a really long time ago. Even though I say so myself, it was a good cake,
In no time at all it was hinted at it was lunch time. Wasn’t it fortunate I had added to the left over soup earlier in the morning. Just a quick re-heat and we sat down to our bowls of soup and a roll.
What should we do about the cleaned top of cupboard surfaces? I mumbled something about greaseproof paper; anyway I’d find something. I had to go out sometime, and early in the afternoon was best. After all, I wanted to enjoy some of the warm and sunny weather, didn’t I. B)
In one store an assistant said she had used cling film to cover her cupboard tops. Good idea; so off I went to the local small supermarket and got the largest roll there was on the shelf, 100m.
At home, I found the ladder in the middle of the kitchen and some store things already restored to their former places. The rest was on the floor near by the steps waiting for my attention. “I’ve bought a large roll of cling film for the surfaces” I gaily announced. “I’ve done the job already” said hubby, ” I’ve laid greaseproof paper”. 88|
