Making a start
Thanks for all your kind words about my brother. However it has been confirmed by the doctor on duty that he is indeed a dipstick (brother not doctor) as he has been walking round with a two inch fracture on his forehead for the past two weeks. However as my brother had been taking a photo daily of his badly bruised & swollen forehead (what sort of prat does that?) they were able to gauge the scale of said injury & after some questions & an x ray we were able to leave.
He bought me a rather splendid lunch to say thank you. I spent the remainder of the afternoon trailing after my brother through the city of Chester feeling more than sozzled as he bought me a bottle of prosecco during lunch. That is after me drinking my two regulation glasses.
Now I like a drink ladies & gentlemen I make no secret about that. However I can manage a glass & a half before I start feeling merry. How I didn't start swinging from the rows I don't know.
Sunday afternoon at the garden centre saw Mike & I buy these little beauties. Our local garden centre were selling greenhouse plants 4 for £5
I bought £15 worth so we are nicely set. I have a selection of heritage tomatoes because all I want from a tomato is to look pretty in a bowl. I don't like raw tomato - said quite possibly the only person ever, a cucumber & a selection of chillies.
This works well for Mike & I a nice varied selection without the added cost of all the seeds, compost, pots etc.
I also made cauliflower cheese with the cauli from the garden.
I was going to do something fancy with such a wonderful specimen but was so thrilled not to be in work I took the easy option of whipping up a cheese sauce. Delightful it was too.
Talking of work I shall leave you with a funny tale.
Part of my duties includes being the chief disciplinary officer. Oh she works in HR I here some of you say. No, just woman enough to do the job.
Anyway I dressed myself this morning ready for work. Fitted smart black dress & a pinky tweed jacket. The dress is important to the story as I couldn't zip the blinking thing up properly. Snigger all you like as I was doing all sort of contortions.
Now I had set my heart on wearing this dress so did the best I could & spent the day praying that a gust of wind didn't blow the back of my jacket up to show a half zipped up frock.
Take care all xx
