Sorry, greengage crumble is for pudding tomorrow at Wonky's place - you'll have to try to wangle an invitation from her ............ far be it from me to presume, and all that .............. 

She is providing custard and OH is bringing a big tub of Marybelle double cream home from the farm shop. 

Hwk done  and Asian braised beef short ribs are in the slow cooker, to be served this evening on noodles, with a Hot & Sour shredded salad and stirfried Tat soi .

Time for lunch (the last bowl of turkey broth) then I'll be knitting with my feet up in front of the tennis - Come On Andy!!!

Anyone done any gardening today?

Brrrrrrrrrrr!!!  Just been out and raked the last of the leaves into a heap ready to bag up, moved the chicken wire that's protecting the broad bean seedlings from the depredations of any visiting cats, and stood out there for a few minutes, freezing, while I pondered on the forthcoming rearrangement of the 'utility area' now the poorly ash tree has gone. 

More hot coffee needed
