'Sankara' Spanglentils

These 'Sankara' Spanglentils are such a lovely warm shade of orange. I'm going to give a little prize to the first person who can tell me what they think I've named them after. First person to post the correct answer in my comments section gets a lucky dip bag of Lonelies . . . . .

I've been a bit quiet again, haven't I? I've actually been doing things apart from sitting in a shed melting glass! Shocking, I know. Saturday night I went round my friend Helen's for dinner and we ended up playing on the Nintendo Wii. I pulled my left hamstring and bashed my right hand against the sofa in the process but it was so much fun! So much fun in fact, I had to go out and buy me a Wii! So now I can pull hamstrings and bash hands in the comfort of my own lounge. Hurrah! Actually I made a complete tit of myself today. I came in from the shed for my lunch and I thought I'd have a quick game of tenpin bowling on the Wii. So there I was in the lounge throwing imaginary bowling balls and punching the air with glee whenever I got a strike when I noticed a lady outside just standing and staring at me. She obviously had no idea what I was doing - all she was seeing was a mad person throwing ridiculous shapes for no apparent reason. I stopped dead and then ran over to the coffee table out of her sight and crouched there until she'd gone. She must have thought I was a complete and utter nutter!

I'm going out again tomorrow night. I'm meeting up with Nicky and Jo for a drink which will be nice! And then I'm up in Cambridge at the weekend seeing Chris. Busy busy me!

Lovely beads Laura.

Wii bowling is so much fun, when we got ours I played it for 4 hours non stop, I didn't half feel it the next day though, talk about aching!

Laura said...

Thanks all. :o)

I know! The aching! It's the boxing that gets me - I get totally worn out.
