Well folks this won’t be a long post, [now where have I heard that before] as I will be getting ready to go and visit my grand-daughter Sarah and her partner Ross in their new home, this afternoon.
Yesterday I had a baking session, I haven’t done that for a while, I took a fancy to make some pastry for a change, and made a Bakewell tart, it turned out not too bad if I say so myself.
also tried a new sponge recipe, cocoanut and almond, and I topped it with cream cheese and icing sugar, blended with some cocoanut milk, we’ll see what the family say, but guess what? I liked it, I have to do a little taste and try before I offer up my efforts you see.
When I was picking blackberries the other day I got a thorn in my knuckle and it hurts, just thought I’d put that in for a sympathy vote.
The weather to-day is as miserable and grey as my mood, as to-day eight years ago My wonderful gentle Jet left this world to join my other dog jewels. We never had time or opportunity for a hug or to say goodbye, I rushed him to the vet, he disappeared inside in his arms as he was unconscious, and I never saw him again, he died before he could be diagnosed, I don’t know yet to this day what happened, all they said was he’d obviously had a bleed, as his gums were white. ?? after hearing a story from a dog walking friend who’s dog had similar symptoms,though survived due to rat poisoning, who knows. RIP my wonderful boy, you gave me twelve wonderful years.
In the evening I finished watching ‘Roots’ remember the TV series in the 70’s, it has been re worked and most enjoyable, I’ve been watching over a period of four weeks as it’s 11 hours worth of DVD’s well folks I’m off now to get a quick bite to eat and changed .
