My MIL passed away late last year and the family have had several working bees in clearing out the house. Once the furniture had gone to new owners, we had to deal with cupboards and wardrobes full of bits and pieces collected over the years. Robin’s sister does not sew, and neither do the other daughter-in-laws, so I claimed the big black button bag. How exciting – not only does it contain heaps of interesting buttons, but also lots of buckles too. In fact, I’m wondering if it may have belonged to Robin’s granny at some stage, and maybe she passed it on to MIL.

The weather is certainly getting colder so I can’t help myself - I’ve been cooking up more soup. Today I made broccoli and cheese soup for lunch. This is made in the microwave and whizzed up in the food processor. Yummy, I love home made soup.
