Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Love the sound of wildfowl flying over ... one of the lovely things about living here near the marshes.


I woke up early a couple of days ago and told Mrs B that I could hear geese flying over. Total nonsense, I 'd been dreaming. We had been in Norfolk last week and heard loads of Pinkfeet… :D

We live on an RSPB nature reserve, and I don’t think I have ever seen as many geese as we have here just now.....they stay on the bay a lot of the time, but come and feed on the newly cropped fields, eating all the stray grain. The farmers get annoyed when they move onto the newly growing crops though. Quite a lot of geese over winter here, but most move on when it gets really cold, I think they come down your way Suffs!
I love to hear them flying overhead.
Shooting is allowed here, which seems strange on a bird reserve, and we do get quite a few hunters especially nearer Christmas. I’ve been given wild geese, but I’m not very keen on them really, and they are a lot of work to prepare.

good morning, all.
sunny.
we have our last trip of the season down to the minack this evening - chicago. this was not on our original booking list but is a substitution for the one that i had to cancel too late for a refund. i have a couple of 'anne's pastys' in the freezer and we'll need plenty of insulation when the sun goes down.
we met up with friends at the blue bar last night for a pint as the sun went down - which morphed into dinner. we haven't seen them since they moved up country fifteen or twenty years ago. it was a really good catch up. i think/hope it won't be so long next time.
better get some washing on while the good weather holds.
we don't get skeins of geese here.
have a good day, everyone.

Good morning all :D

Enjoy the Minack Scully (and the pastys) ... hope the good weather stays with you for the evening. It's lovely here at the moment ... wall to wall blue sky and sunshine. OH is cycling down to W'rose to buy his ingredients ... he's making a prawn curry from the W'rose mag for supper ... there will however be some substitutions ... I've explained that these recipes are a way of W'rose selling us things that we don't really need :lol:

Good to catch up with old friends ... we hope to meet up with some on Saturday evening when we go to an Opening Party at DS and colleague's new premises. OH has to work the next day so we won't be staying late ... it's a 90 min drive home ... but it'll be great to share the occasion.

Have a good day all :D

Good (just) afternoon ….

I had a very emotional drive to work through the village this morning: A young girl called Jess lost her long fight with a rare brain tumour earlier this month and her funeral is today (actually taking place as I type) She was 10 and was first diagnosed when she was 3 . The village have held various fund raising events with the aim of sending her to America for pioneering treatment (I don't know if she ever went). She knew her condition was terminal and so planned her own funeral … hence the route of her cortége through village has been decorated with pink bows and balloons. The roundabout in the centre now looks like a May-pole … I drove in a blur of tears even though I never knew her or her family … but with such pride that our village has come together at this sad time :cry: :cry: :cry:

Good morning, all.
Sunny.
We had a similar experience once. We'd gone up to Launceston (pronounced lanson) and found the main street crammed with people. It was for the funeral of the young girl murdered in a youth hostel in brittany. So sad.
Off to the South armed with a seed catalogue, today.
I will also pick up a couple of emergency pastys from 'Anne's pasty's ', the ones we had last night were so good.
Last night's performance was brilliant. Chicago, performed by the British theatre academy. Some stunning voices, amazing dancing - just brilliant. I'm sort of glad that the friend couldn't make it for wolf hall!
Definitely worth looking out for it they perform near you.
Need a coffee before I head off.
Have a glorious day, everyone.

It was a 'sold out' performance. I can understand why, if people got wind of it.
We got there a bit early as we were told by a friend that the roads are a bit busy down that way at the moment - they're filming poldark.

Good morning
We didn’t have a big funeral for the nice lad who was stabbed to death in the small (and usually rather nice) estate behind me
But a few months later the council provided some gents and equipment from the parks department to do the heavy work, and with their help the residents association built a small memorial garden, and dedicated it with a little get together. It has lasted very well and I always find it rather moving when I walk through it

Good morning. Up early - off th France of the day. Le Touquet is on the agenda.

good morning, all.
sunny.
going for the coffee with a friend, in a bit, that was postponed from last weekend.
after that i will probably take up the tomato plants from the (not so) barren wasteland. the sun has moved round and they are in shade longer now so i doubt any more of the tomatoes are going to ripen. i may also take up and pot the chilli plants from there as well. i could put them in a sunny place for another few weeks but i think that as the temperature is dropping they could do with coming indoors.
i took some cuttings of the really tasty tomato from the walled garden, yesterday, to see if i can keep them going for next year. i've taken seed from them, too but i don't know if they're an f1 hybrid or not.
i went to le touquet when i was about twelve or thirteen. i only really remember the beach; i don't think we went into the town.
have a lovely day, everyone.

Chilly here but wall to wall blue skies and sunshine ... when OH finishes work we're heading down to Suffolk to a barbecue celebrating the move into the new premises for DS and his colleagues ... I shall wear a thermal vest and socks and take a warm wrap (amongst other things).

We won't be staying there long as OH has to work tomorrow and it's a 90 min journey home, so this morning I'll make a minestrone to fill us up when we get back in case we're hungry ... barbecue's aren't reknowned for their prompt timing, IME :lol:

Have a lovely day folks :D

Sunny but chilly here too

Out for lunch and s visit to the India exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery.

I had a lovely day. Lovely weather - it was really quite hot. T-shirt weather (which alas, was not what I was wearing.) I must say the mind boggles a bit at taking a car over by plane. Presumably they couldn't do many at a time. They send planes over once a day, 6 days a month now. I think they have two types of plane. Takes 15 minutes.
Le Touquet was interesting, as seaside places always are. It reminded me a lot of our local spa town in Normandy - Bagnol de L'Orne. The architecture is kind of faux Swiss (? maybe not quite.) We call it Toy Town. Beautiful fine white sand. Not a lot to do other than walk on it unelss you are into casinos.
We had a nice lunch, did a bit of shopping in a Leclerc. Pootle around a bit, then ended up in Cite Europe (we had not intended to) then back on the train before the one we were booked onto at half eight.
Best (favourite) culinary buy: a string of smoked garlic, which was on my list. I want to make some smoked garlic butter.

I'd like to to do this again, but go somewhere different 9i.e. other than Le Touquet.)

There were a few things I couldn't buy, foodwise but I am having a long weekend in Paris in November :)

Today - a little overcast here but bright sun behind the clouds. I am off to Sainsbury's (didn't buy cat litter in France ;) then afternoon to myself as OH is spending it with an old school friend before he flies back.

Good morning, all.
Overcast. It was also a little chilly last night.
No, that was a channel ferry journey, sue, although I have been on an air ferry from Southend to ostend when I was eight. It's quite strange to think that cars were carried on planes for crossings to the continent.
I have a very large bag of green tomatoes. I know some will ripen, some aren't looking too healthy (the plants got blasted the week before last) and some I'm going to have fried but I'll still be left with quite a few kilos. I may have to see if I have a hidden stash of jars somewhere otherwise they will have to go to compost.
Have a good day, everyone.

I didn't see it, don't know how It was loaded - yes I've seen the drive on air ferries, similar to the Antonovs and big Lockheed aircraft used to transport armoured vehicles still. But smaller

Apparently the Bristil 170 run by Silver City Airways

There were quite a lot of small air companies, around until well into the 60s, using mainly war surplus equipment and ex-RAF pilots, Channel Airways was one that flew from Portsmouth and Southampton, I flew to Guernsey from Southampton (Eastleigh) in 1961. I later went out with the son of one of the owners (long after it folded) He'd never been to the Channel Islands

Back from having my flu jab. Had thought I might do a bit of pottering outside but the sunshine is intermittent and interspersed with heavy showers so I won't do that ... some time in the studio and then a bit of knitting are on the cards. OH isn't back at work until Saturday so he'll help with some gardening when the weather is drier ... hopefully Tues/Wed.

Have a good day folks. :D

Lots of ripe cherry toms and chillis to be turned into a ketchup today ... think supper may be spaghetti carbonara as I can’t remember taking the intended pork fillet out of the freezer :oops:

I wonder whether OH wants to sort the compost heap and take down the runner beans today .... the weather is fine ... so far ...

Beautifully sunny here
Need to fiddle with the heating as it is currently 23.4 C in this room though the intended 21.5 C everywhere else.
Might explain how rapidly I fell asleep on the sofa last night

Need to do some bits and bobs and go to local shops, because I have acquired a medical appointment for Wednesday afternoon I have to get all my prep for Cook Book club in the evening done today, finish tomorrow morning, and take it all with me. First job, put ice packs in the freezer.

It's supposed to brighten up later today but the tops of the skyscrapers in the city were shrouded in mist as I came into London Bridge at lunch time. I had a very brief foray into Borough Market on the way in (picked up a slice of German cheesecake :) ) and overheard a woman telling her companion "Cheese is one of the things I don't really like." ??!!?? And another person saying "It's almost a tourist attraction here, now." Another ??!! (as in, almost??!!)

Good afternooon folks :D Apologies for late appearance ... a bit of a busy morning.

It seems to depend on the dog a bit ...but certainly since MIL's dog passed on he's never needed his inhaler when visiting. He's loves dogs and as long as he's in the open air he can fuss and stroke them ... it's just if he's in a house for several hours where a dog or cat lives he gets wheezy.

A gorgeous day here, and OH has been mulching the veg patch with the compost from the mature heap ... I must go out and inspect.

Enjoy the rest of the day folks 8-)

Good morning all :D

Overcast here at the moment but we are advised to expect better things later.

Up dressed organised and waiting for the Smart Meter Fitter .......... any time between 8-1 .... it was arranged a couple of months ago and there's been no update since ... I suppose a text when he/she is on their way is too much to hope for? The relevant area in the garage has been cleared and when it was arranged I stressed that the meters are 'above head height' so they will need a step ladder etc. We shall see.

I presume that we'll have to spend at least part of the morning with no electricity, so I won't put a load in the washing machine and I will bring the wind up radio down from the study ... I plan to spend the morning doing the complicated bit of picking up stitches and creating a band on the jacket I'm knitting ... an attempt after supper yesterday was abandoned :? :rolleyes:

Shall be interested in the menu Scully

good morning, all.
raining - which is ok cos it hasn't done that for quite a while (it seems).
also, it's ok as i'm indoors all day , at the best agm ever - two talks/workshops with, sandwiched between them, an incredibly brief agm and an excellent buffet lunch. all for free other than paying £20 for the year's subs - and that is with a £5 discount for paying on (or before) the day.
the added bonus, this year, is that it's being held in a nearby village rather than half way to st austell.
as i have to be there for ten i'd better head for the shower.
the f1 will be watched when i get home, late this afternoon.
have a cosy day, everyone.

Good morning
Grey here some showers threatened later
Will trot to supermarket soonish and buy a few bits, hoping not to get wet
Continuing the pre-holiday clear up as I have got terribly behind due to all the various little setbacks

Enjoy the workshops scully - I went to a similarly structured conference / agm two weeks ago

Have a good day everyone

Good morning all :D

A quick W'rose dash has been completed ... spuds, carrots, onions, cabbage, milk, coffee ... just a few of the necessities of life ... and OH is off to work.

Today I will make a leek and potato soup with the stock from yesterday's gammon hock, and a casserole with shin of beef for supper tonight. I will then tackle the other half of the complex neckband of the jacket I'm knitting ... then all that needs to be done is to sew it all up and await delivery of the next batch of wool ... this time green for another sweater for OH.

Have a good day folks :D

Good morning, all.
The weather promises to be fine all day so a spot of 'fencing' will start shortly followed by a meeting this afternoon.
A coffee and a pecan plait are calling.
Have a bona day, everyone.

Ps the kindle didn't suggest bona which is why I typed it! It did suggest some less than appropriate words to follow it though.

Good morning
I understood from the forecast we having a few showers in the afternoon yesterday but it started raining about 10.30 and alternated between fairly heavy and very heavy all day. At least it gives the grass a chance to get stronger before it stops growing for the winter.

Sun now, might go to apple day at Butterfield Green, just as somewhere to walk. It sounds gloriously bucolic but it’s a small park named after a gent called Mr Butterfield
Have a good day everyone

It's lovely here after yesterday's almost relentless rain. No rain forecast for SE London.

Brrr! A lot colder here today although the sun is out. Decanting one garage to another today with hopefully, some dumping and some planting of crocosmia for some colour next year.

Good morning all :D

The sun is trying to shine and it's a calm and dry morning. OH has just set off to work ... I've had a dippy egg and done the little bit of h*wk that needed to be done ... I finished knitting the borders of my jacket yesterday evening so today I shall be assembling and sewing it up :D

Have a lovely day folks :D

montbretia is a bit of a pernicious weed down here. Hard to dig up, hard to kill and invasive. It may look pretty for a little while but it competes everything else out of existence.
My goat used to like the leaves though.
