Yes please Dove! One more door to wax. Rather struggling with the light now.

His lordship is having a break from DIY to go mess around with Land Rover with his friend so puppy and I are home alone for a few hours. Hopefully I'll get all the doors waxed in that time! Brilliant wax but gosh does it smell strong.

I AM COOKING the duck tonight. With roast potatoes and honey glazed roast parsnip. I can't decide however whether a raspberry compote will help or hinder (no plums to make a plum type sauce). Dilemmas!

Tramadol is horrid stuff. I had my fair share from the medication cabinet after the Accident and found it worse than morphine.

Horrid nights sleep, well more correctly, a horrid nights awake. :(

Off for a walk with a few other German Shepherds this morning. Then more waxing and DIY!

What is on your Christmas list?

A new fork after his lordship snapped the other one. Needs to be a tall one which seems very hard to find.

All bulbs are in mud! Not quite as tidy as I wanted but at least they are in the ground for spring.

Two doors have been waxed, three more to do! (After the plasterer has been) Unfortunately attempting to look pretty and put nail varnish on + waxing = yellow nails. 

His lordship called me earlier to tell me there were trick or treaters in the street. Imagine my face when I realised that IT WAS THE NEIGHBOURS CHILDREN AND THAT'S JUST WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE. No Samhain til Monday here.

So duck turned into pork with a chilli marinade, cheesy cauliflower, roast potatoes and peas.

Not sure how that happened!

Still belly is now full so we're all happy.

Place your bets on the delivery from Wickes (meant to be last Saturday) actually turning up tomorrow.

Right all inspired by these feasts I've pulled some duck breast from the freezer. Now to dust off the receipe books! 

Oh... and then dust off the kitchen.

Oh he's beautiful. I'm afraid I'd be sneaking him away in my jacket!
