Feet Up

Yesterday was an 'easy' day.  

I DID get my hair cut - 

I went from pretty much this.................. 

To this.................... (though I didn't go blonde)

I DID pick up the groceries that I need for the Christmas feasts - 
I DID remember to charge the battery for my camera - 
I EVEN remembered to charge my cell phone (though that was a day late and after the phone died) 
I EVEN tried to find someone to come and sweep the chimney (the Insurance company is yelling for proof - and I quite truthfully forgot - about both - getting it done and telling the insurance company)  and of course I put in a full day at work.......... 

When I got home I ran a duster over the furniture on the main level - and then decided that that was IT!  I put my pjs on and curled up on the sofa and watched mindless television for a couple of hours before heading off to bed.

I will admit the comments from yesterday's blog were running through my head - and I almost - operative word being ALMOST - went and found those recipes you folks asked for... but you will all have to wait for another day.  The vegging time was needed to re-charge my batteries.

Today stretches ahead of me - full of paper work and gift giving - baking mini cupcakes and (if time allows) the peanut butter chocolate brownies.......... 

The countdown continues .................

With the busy days you'v'e had, just thinking about getting the recipes out is great. I've searched since last year for a good Namino Bar recipe and can certainly wait patiently for yours. They did have some recipes on the foodnetwork but the ingredients didn't sound right.
Maerry Christmas

I found this recipe for Namino Bars online:

And the I found a place where they sell Birds custard powder ... also online:

Having said all that ... I would still love YOUR recipe! =)

You totally deserve to relax after how busy you've been! I've had a hard time getting motivated this Christmas!

BlazngScarlet.... thanks for website. Also being from the US deep south, I've never heard of 'custard powder'. Is that similar to a 'pudding' mix?
Still want your recipe, too.

The Birds Custard Powder is British.
It is very similar to using a vanilla or French vanilla pudding mix .... just creamier and more traditional custard like! =)
