    Imagine me, sitting & bitterly ripping back four rows of lace (4 rows from from finishing shawl for MIL’s birthday), and hearing my name on Craftlit! I had a complete attitude adjustment – I was positively giddy! Made it much easier to spend the next 6 hours trying to get back to where I started that morning……. can any one say “lifeline”? Every time I felt the bitterness well back up, I remembered that I was a WINNER!!!!

    At least until I played it for my husband & he said “Are you sure you’re the right Robin?”…….

    Thanks, Heather, for making my day! I didn’t scream, but I giggled like a 4 year old!!

    First off, I add milk to “cream soups” and sometimes to tomato but only if I am NOT making grilled cheese sandwiches to go with.
    Secondly, I am reading “Watching the English” by Kate Fox. The author is a Brit who spent a part of her young life in America and France. She details, with wonderful humor, the nuances of British conduct. Why am I reading this? I have a young recently immigrated friend from London and she has approved everything thus far. So, for advice on everything on Pub etiquette to why the English start every conversation with the weather, READ THIS BOOK!

    I just cannot bring myself to add milk to soup, although I happily add just a bit of thickened cream if I am making a strained/blended creamy soup like pumpkin or mushroom.
