My Mum's Birthday Plans.

 What have I got myself into it's my Mum's 83rd Birthday on Monday the 19th  and I have said I will cook a full Sunday Lunch for eight on Sunday afternoon, so we can get all the family together because Monday is a work day and people can not all make it all at the same time. myself and my Sister will take my Mum out for lunch Monday that is what my Mum said she would like to do bless her.  So I have been shopping today I bought her a new handbag and a pink top with sequined flower motif at the front also in Pink, as you have guessed my Mother likes the colour Pink and it really suits her so I think she will like my choices.
 I have decided to make for the Birthday banquet  Roast Chicken with Creamy Mash Potatoes  and Roast Potatoes carrots, broccoli, peas, and chicken gravy,  for dessert I will have a choice of Lemon Meringue Pie or little fairy cakes, I will save the big birthday cake which is a chocolate one till her actual birthday, then I will give her, her presents.  So I have been a good girl everyone and have done a big shop I do try and buy local if I can, and it's quite easy to do so where I live they have remarkable produce so fresh and tasty. I already have a recipe for my fairy cakes here on the blog here's the link if you want to take look Fairy Cakes , so I will in a future post put one up about how to make Lemon meringue  pie.
     So my dear readers I am going to have a very busy few  days so wish me luck, I have just had a thought while writing this post I think I have forgotten birthday candles and wrapping paper, I better go and check, back to the shops I go.

Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?
