Count blessings

My bad mood nothing's working mojo ends today! It's been one of those weeks in the kitchen, the garden and at the sewing machine. Thank you to my blog friends for the constant stream of new comments on my blog I often try to reply but am unable to. I always check out your blogs though and have alot of "favorites" to catch up on in the school holidays. Thanks to my local friends who've called and visited and listened to my moaning. I'm not having any more bad dreams about the upcoming Education Review office visit to Playcentre, what will be will be. Just remind me to count my blessings every now and then please.
Do you like my wooden spoons? They were my Christmas present to myself from local woodworker PJ Heath. The long one is especially fabulous for preserving. You can find him at the Pokororo Fair and the Motueka Market.
I put the call out for a Sweet Chilli Sauce recipie. ( Thanks Mum)This is a beauty.

20 oz Sugar
20 oz Red Peppers
6 oz Chilli peppers
2 cups white vinegar
1 cup water
5 large cloves garlic

2tsp salt

All I can say is... that if you can produce such delicious-looking chilli sauce when in "low mood" - you are one impressive person. When things are ugh for me I sometimes just stay under the duvet! Not in the least productive. Thanks for posting recipie - I 'm certainly going to try this one. Mary
