Bran flakes and shed beds

I fancied bran flakes for breakfast this morning. I had finished the packet I had been using, so got another one out of the cupboard. When I opened it, the flakes were horribly stale, and when I checked out the best before date, it wasn’t surprising – 1st... read more

Michelham Priory, khaki gunk and lost keys

Had some of that posh rhubarb yogurt this morning, just a couple of spoonfuls as I had just got up, but needed some fuel. I just love that rhubarb purée. Khaki coloured gunk, yum! Then straight up the gym, early. Did a very vigorous workout, came back red faced, hot... read more

Big lunches and delicious leftovers

Well goodness, my dogs are barking* this evening! I have just come back from catering a WI resolutions lunch, where we have a nice lunch, then debate the resolution for the annual WI campaign. This year I did a risotto. Proper Arborio rice, with white wine, butter,... read more

Dresses, lasagna and resolutions

Look what arrived this morning! This gorgeous little dress is what my, very tall, 7 year old grand daughter will be wearing to my wedding. I got it from eBay, at a very decent price. It’s amazing what can be found there. Must get on and order my own dress now.... read more

Another long walk followed by excited squeaks

Had a lovely long walk along the seafront today, well over 8000 steps. The 10,000 is eluding me still, but it’s a lot better than it has been lately. On our way back, I came across one of those gorgeous ethnic shops that sell all those bits and pieces that are... read more

No sleep, a long walk and a big cake

Glad to get to bed last night after the late one the previous evening. Didn’t go too early as I would just wake up earlier. And when did I wake up? Flipping 3am, that’s when. Gave up and got up at 4:30, still tired, but unable to sleep. Argh. Drooping... read more
