Decorating and quick meals

We are still busy decorating the lounge. 2/3rds of it is almost complete. The new curtains have been bought and we look forward to putting them up even if I am not looking forward to taking up their hems. Here they are still in their packaging. We bought them from Dunelm.

Although the background material looks lilac, it isn't. It is a creamy colour with undertones of light coffee (ish). The flowers though, do have colours in them that match and blend with the wall colour which is Natural Hessian.

Quick meals are called for in these situations and last night, I made a vegetable curry with added leftover potatoes. I took and diced one bell pepper, 2 courgettes, 1/2 an onion. These were gently fried in 1 tablespoon oil. Then one tin of chopped tomatoes was added along with 1/2 a vegetable stock cube and a tablespoon of curry paste. After simmering for 15 minutes, the leftover potatoes were added plus a few frozen mushrooms. A few minutes later it was served up (with no rice). We were well and truly ready for it and finished it off quickly.


  1. Beautiful curtain motives! The curry looks delicious, too.

  2. Lovely curtains, Dunelm is an excellent store.
    Your curry looks good too.
    Have a lovely weekend.
