HELLO FORKERS!

  If you were only 20 minutes from landing, why did you have to go back to Crete?

Now you see why we like getting in the car and driving down to Cornwall - most things are under our own control (plus we've discovered a delightful little B&B on the way). 

Couldn't be doing with being abandoned in the middle of nowhere by Easyjet totally at the mercy of others who don't have any reason to give a damn.

Overnight temp down to 1C last night, but back up to 9C at the moment Pat, and the heating's on for the moment so I'm nice and toasty. 

Pat, you asked about our fish pie ... I make mine pretty much like this one http://goodfood.uktv.co.uk/recipe/rick-steins-fish-pie/ .  I usually add some salmon and shellfish as well as the white and smoked fish, and I add the grated zest of half a lemon to the sauce.

Pruning now?

  Whoops!  Sorry ....... manners!   Good morning folks   G'day Pat

Glad you're friend's getting sorted out.  You'll have to tell him, if a similar occasion arises in future he must let you help ......... not for his sake of course, but for the little dog!

It's a complicated pattern BL - I don't think a second sloe gin will do a lot for it's regularity  

Decision made - knitting has gone back into the bag - sloe gin is being poured .... anyone want one?  This batch was made in 2004

HELLO FORKERS!

Right, can someone make a decision for me ......... shall I have another sloe gin while I watch Sherlock?  Or shall I knit ............. the two things don't go together ............

That's very kind but I haven't got room Linda - Verdun had better have my slice ... I'm sure he can make room

I could manage a little wedge of Stilton to go with my sloe gin ...... anyone got any left?
