January has always been such a busy month. Every year I always say that I’ll do my tax return and accounts in the summer, but for the past three years there is always a huge rush to get it done towards the end of January. The same goes for work. It has been extremely busy this month and it’s getting a bit stressful. I’m hoping things will calm down in February.
To try to relax I have taken Kyoko’s advice and try to bake some bread. Instead of making proper bread I started with the simple pizza base. I’ve heard a lot about how relaxing it is to knead the dough and the fun of watching it prove. Before I start making bread I could not resist getting myself a huge Mason Cash bowl. Now there is no excuse not to bake more often.
My daughter helped me make the pizza from the start and we both a had great time:
We made too much, but the pizza still tasted great the next day.
I have also been catching up with my knitting and I’ve finished knitting my Ishbel shawl and Kat hat. Ishbel still needs to be blocked but here is Kat:
Have a great weekend everyone, I’m off to do some knitting.
