What fantastic responses. So pleased to hear that you all have found some source of comfort throughout these testing times.
That list I came across on Pinterest and it's fantastic. I am sure that everyone will find at least one or two things that can give them that boost of inspo!
My husband bought me a New York architectural puzzle for Christmas which I attempted the other evening after work and after two hours I had not even managed to put even two pieces together. That will be a challenge and I will need a lot of patience for it.
- spot on with the cooking. I have been taking the time to put more TLC into my cooking and attempt more complex dishes. Believe it or not at the age of 31 I attempted my first roast two Sundays ago. My dad has always cooked amazing roasts and his roast potatoes have always intimidated me in to attempting my own. But last Sunday I decided I would take the plunge after seeing a great Roast potato recipe. I surprised myself. It did not turn out disastrous and the potatoes were so great. By the time I sat down to eat it, I felt like I had ran a marathon and I was too hot to eat it (haha) I then have attempted twice since and sent a photo to my family on whatsapp and they said my roast looks nicer than what they make! It's something I am really proud of and a challenge I have really overcome. Now I can make a roast confidently every Sunday 😁
I have a set of cook books including Nigella Lawson on my book shelves so I think I am going to look through them tonight and put some book marks into the recipes I like the look of. Nigella better watch out 🤣😉
