Just before I head off to "The Desert"!!

Well, here I go, ready or not! On Friday I'm getting on a plane bound for Abu Dhabi & I still have so much I really should be doing...not least of which is filling a total of 46...yes, 46 jars with differing things like gherkins, onions, peaches, cherries ....the list goes on!! I have, at least, sourced the jars, but to be quite honest the thought of starting to fill them all is NOT filling me with enthusiasm!!
I'm really quite pleased to be escaping the mini sweatshop in a day or so! My middle daughter & I are off to inflict ourselves on the youngest daughter who is living & working out in Al Ain. At the minute the temperature there is up in the high 50's...I really believe I'm going to melt, even though I'm a true sun-worshipper (with the sun damaged skin to prove it!! :-)) )
I have been desperately trying to clear my workshop of all my "UFO's" before I leave & one of them was a basket that consisted only of some straw & a few asparagus spears! As I had been working on asparagus, I forced myself to finish it with the addition of some aubergines! Well worth the effort...I just LOVE it & I really can't make up my mind whether or not to put it up for sale as I just know that I probably won't force myself to make more fiddly asparagus for another couple of years!
