Just weekend things …


About six months ago, I was preparing our Sunday meal when I had an idea. We were having tray bake (we don’t do traditional Sunday lunch type food) which was basically roughly chopped peppers, courgettes, onions with new potatoes and chicken thighs all mixed with olive oil and crushed garlic. I’ve got a picture somewhere … Continue reading Just weekend things …

Holiday …. all done


Well back to work tomorrow. In some respects, the week seems to have flown by. In others it dragged a little. The drive there was quite reasonable. It was all motorway, M1, M62, M60, M61, M6, M55 with a short distance on an a road at each end. I don’t mind the motorways. I don’t … Continue reading Holiday …. all done

A little bit of this ….. a little bit of that …..


Saturday went well. Potted on some of my seedlings. They are looking quite good, fingers (and everything else) crossed, they will survive the holiday. No luck with the Lottery again.

There are all the songs that I remember, and some that I had purposely tried to forget. I have listened to the first 10 tracks on CD1, sitting here, at … Continue reading It is the only way to go back in time …….

It’s the weekend …..


Beloved little one was up at around 5:30 this morning (little horror). The eldest is away with his girl so I had no need to be up early. Then off for a haircut. Now this used to be everybody’s worst nightmare, 10 years ago. Now he just takes it in his stride. It was a … Continue reading It’s the weekend …..

It continues …..

There are times when the conversation, with certain people, is just a little too much hard work. Of course, when I did pass a comment I was, to certain people, … Continue reading It continues …..
