No, I have not suddenly developed an affection for Clarkson – I’m just operating at full tilt today/this week as it is going to be a busy one.

I already have bread and soup on for lunch as when I would normally be preparing lunch, I shall be working with Gill to put everything away from Sunday. I need to get tidied up quickly as Spinning Group will be here on Thursday. I also seem to have added to this week’s mix… a Christmas Cake! Yes, I know it is extremely late to be making one. Nor do I have any good reason for doing it – after all, we don’t even “do” Christmas! However, we have a 500g truckle of Wensleydale coming soon and, well, you know, you can take the lass out of Yorkshire but… she still needs her fruitcake with her cheese. Or at least her husband does. It’s going to be a funny old cake as it was not planned and I am making do with what I can find in the baking cupboard. I just hope I am not left too short for magicking up cake for Thursday.

No goose murderers in sight when I got up this morning, just a beautiful Kestrel on the fence. It was too dark for a photo.

No time to find a featured image today, I leave you instead with a blank. I promise to return to the blog swing just as soon as I possibly can.

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
