Tootles, I agree about Nigel Slater's Toast - especially the bit about the family's first encounter with Parmesan. He is a very good writer, in fact I much prefer his writing to his rather curious manner on Television.

Frank, those toms sound delicious.

Pretty squally here, the Jack Russell loved her morning walk with her raincoat on (her fur takes so long to dry that a raincoat is the answer).

philippa, I so agree that a compost bin is more interesting than TV! Especially soap operas In a compost bin, you have LIFE, DEATH, DECOMPOSITION; ok you may have that stuff on East Enders, but East Enders does not produce Black Gold - wonderful growing medium for your plants

My drill (bought as a Christmas present by my rather DIY innocent brother 42 years ago who said to the sales assistant in Selfridges 'My sister wants a drill with a vibrator' - I had asked for a drill with a hammer action) still has it's original chuck key because I keep it attached to the lead with a piece of string which has only had to be replaced once in 42 years. I have bought other drills to put my old one out to grass, the first one the chuck flew off so I returned it to the shop, the second one is so low powered I just use it permanently for countersinking. It is not allowed to do anything else until it grows up!
