Memorandum Monday

This is the second week that I have joined in with Sian's new Monday thoughts where we think about something new that we have done or learnt. Alongside that I am giving a big wave to Sian and all the other bloggers.
Thinking of something new takes some thought. Have I done anything new? Saturday was spent mainly cooking. Making batches of soup and updating my supply of marmalade with some Seville oranges I had in the freezer. It was when I was sorting out the jars on Sunday morning I remembered I had some lovely new labels that my niece had given me.


This led me on to think about the Winter Photography Scavenger Hunt where I need an entry for No. 20 My Own Handwriting. Handwriting is a very personal thing. I have never considered mine to be the best. I have been told it looks like a spider has crossed the page...... It is interesting that my sister and I have very different handwriting (hers is much neater!) I am not sure if that is dexterity or different schooling. Do you remember all that forming letters and handwriting practice?


So back to something new. On Sunday we have had a lovely family lunch cooked by my sister in law. She is a great cook and it was all equally delicious. Anything I hadn't had before? Yes a delicious chocolate torte.


Then it was time to make some new plans. A family brainstorming for a special 90th birthday later in the year drawing up a guest list and planning how we are going to celebrate it.

  1. Lovely post and that sounds like a great weekend. Your handwriting isn't spidery at all! I have those labels too (Lakeland ones on the strip) and really love using them.

  3. very pretty labels - I think I could use those in scrapbooking! WOW a 90th birthday is certainly something to celebrate - I'll say no to a piece of that delicious looking torte - detoxing on sugar (or at least I'm trying to). Your handwriting looks just fine ... oh I do like marmalade ...

  4. Your handwriting looks very nice on those lovely labels! I am a big fan of real handwriting on scrapbook pages..I think it's a good thing to leave behind. A 90th birthday? Wow, now that is something to enjoy planning for. Have a great week Maggie

  5. I love handwriting - and yours is fine. At least all the letters are the same size and spaced evenly. Mine is awful but I still use it on scrapbook pages because typed seems so impersonal. My husband's grandma had her 102nd birthday last year ... she did a parachute jump for her 90th!

  6. That chocolate torte looks delicious. I made on once but neglected to use a springform tin (I didn't have one at the time) and we had to hack it out of the dish! I used to love handwriting practice in Miss Edward's class. Prime day dreaming time. Have a great week Maggie.

  7. you do keep busy, the labels are lovely and your handwriting is fine. I know how you feel though as I hate mine, I feel it is messy and childish looking!

  9. DH loves marmalade and I buy him home made versions when ever I see it. Always nice to try new things - and a chocolate torte sounds good to me.
