I had forgotten that we have a bank holiday this weekend, now I know I'm really looking forward to it, there is rumour of a lie in. We are also off out and about to look for furniture, that sounds like it has the potential to be a bit stressful so I'm planning pastries and a flask of coffee to sweeten the deal.
The freezer is in a very sorry state and needs to be defrosted so we've been eating from this this week and will continue to do so until Monday which means very little cooking for me this weekend too, which is a bonus. Dan is going to make a crumble with the rest of the frozen fruit, he makes a really good crumble topping, I don't know where he got the recipe and he won't tell me what he does to make it so nice, I know almonds are involved. Anyway, if I don't know then Dan has to continue to hold the title of Chief Crumble Maker.
I know most people enjoy September, the time of fresh starts, but I am really looking forward to it this year. I don't really have anything planned, it just seems that a new month is an exciting time. Plus it's switch on which is a strange and wonderful thing, the film director Tim Burton is getting the illuminations going this year, another big name to add to the list. I just checked and Tom Baker (Doctor Who) did the honours the year I was born, Robbie Williams did it the first year we lived here and so the first time I experienced the lights. It never fails to astound me that in this day and age people will turn up to look at loads of light bulbs, but we do and it's fun.
