Taking a small break for Simply Scrumblicious and being a 'Yappy'

I'm taking a 'very short' break from this blog over the next two weeks as I need to focus 100% on Simply Scrumblicioius. I don't believe that we only have two weekends left till the Wemake fair. Arggg! You can keep up with our progress on our blog.

On my way home from work today I picked up the London Paper (another free paper provided on the streets of London) to ease the stress of communting home during the rush hour (sound familiar doesn't it). I found another article on Knitting (also on jam making and owning your own allotment) written by Johnny Vaughan (yes the guy from the Big Breakfast). According to this article people in their 20s and 30s are turning into Happy Yappies - Young Aged Pensioners?? I'm typing this wearing my old peach (hand-knitted) cardigan that my cousin made me. Hee! Hee! So instead of going out and wasting money on drinks and clubbing we prefer to stay at home and attend knitting groups.

Those cakes look amazing - I wish I could come along but I'm doing a course that day. Good luck with it - it'll go brilliantly I'm sure :)

I read that page on the DLR on the way home, first I was shocked, I thought that they were being rude about the things that I enjoy (our cupboards are over flowing with chutny, pickles and ketchups and I am on a waiting list for an allotment...). But actually the girls they interviewd did rather well I thought and proudly stood up for their past times. I'd rather make scones any night than drink away any spare money that I may have!

Hi All,

Thanks for the good luck wishes for the fair. I feel like I'm about to take an exam in two weeks time.

Philipa,

I agree with you....clubbing and drinking is such a waste of time and money. I also find that some people find it strange that I love knitting, sewing and baking, but as you said, we should be proud of our hobbies and not ashamed. BTW is jam making fun?? ;>
