Dover sole! Yum! Very expensive here.

.......  I ought to clean the bathroom but don't feel like it.

Big ones - fresh from the boat at Southwold harbour yesterday £4 each.  They had small, med, large and even larger - mine are large.

BL - I have made a rule - h*wk doesn't happen in the afternoon in this house

Chablis eh?  .... I might have to see what there is in the garage - I know there's several bottles of French Sauv. blanc, plus Muscadet sur lies and Picpoul  ....  I'm thinking maybe the Picpoul?

DD - I agree with BL - you're not allowing yourself enough recovery time - slow down ((hugs))

Right, two Dover sole skinned and ready to be baked then served with a lemon butter and caper sauce, baby potatoes and petit pois.

Now I shall sit down for a bit

I'm wondering whether the decline in the number of starlings in the UK has something to do with the increasing prevalence of leatherjackets - they're currently on the RSPB Red List

We have a few which nest under the tiles of next door's roof - I'm going to find an appropriate spot to site a few of these so that the little colony can grow a bit.

Foxes will walk along the top of some fences - they're almost as nimble as a cat.  But that hole wasn't made by a fox.
