Anyway I love red peppers and the bbq does them well
I am onto a new salad - always trying new salads - this one has rocket and beetroot and goats cheese and walnuts - yum.
Last night (do not ask why this in underlined but of course it was important) - the All Blacks played England
The first horror was that the meat was marinating for a bbq and we were relaxing with a glass of champers when Ian discovered that Foxtel was not broadcasting the game - not have the rights - so changes afoot - meat back in fridge and off to the Inglewood pub for dinner and game. It was a tough game but they got there and in the last 20 minutes showed why they are the best team in the world. England put on a good show. We had the company of lots of young kiwis who had drunk more than us but they were friendly enough and we were all on the same side.
There has been a bit of discussion on the gelli plate fb page about deli paper and everyone panics because they can't buy it in Australia or UK - not sure what it is like etc etc.I have some but I also hear that there are some deli papers better than other deli papers. These are some of my letters - I am sure we all collect them and I have quite a healthy few - they are hard to get these days. The Making Memories ones - I think- seemed to have been discontinued. I will have some lovely ones in January I hope - I have been searching. I thought I would try them on the gelli plate - I am working with the letter V
This is the US deli paper - it has a crease down the middle - like all papers takes paint well - you can print on it etc.
My new toy - my thermofax - is up and running and I have been playing - not for public eyes yet as I am rather heavy handed and working on no bleeding. Naturally I did have to create tiny screens with fine detail on them but that's the challenge,
We have been busy loading new things to the website but there is more to come including our new glass buttons which are a bit to die for so hang in there and wait. We have added the Christmas Hampers - thanks for the fast response from some - we will be starting posting them from tomorrow until 15th Dec.
in the meantime off to sweep the back garden and get the bbq underway. And happy birthday to Hannah - hope you are being spoilt rotten....
