OH made a chicken pie for supper today (under supervision and with rough puff pastry I'd made a couple of weeks ago and put in the freezer). It was superb and I'm very stuffed!
While I was picking the runner beans to go with the pie, I saw something unusual amongst the foliage ............... a large round shape ................. yet another branch of the monstrous rampaging squash has reached into the runner beans and yes - we have a squash - at the moment it's about the size of a large coconut (but round). I don't suppose it'll have time to ripen, but you never know .......... watch this space!
Heard earlier that Pa was taken to hospital to get a problem with his catheter sorted out. Brother phoned the hospital and tried to find out whether he was being admitted or was he all sorted and being sent back - all the hospital could say was that there was no person by that name in the hospital at the moment - they could not say whether he had been and gone, or whether he was waiting in an ambulance queue. Brother is currently driving up the A12 to visit him, wherever he is.
Anyone seen a nearly 95 year old with a RAF moustache on a hospital trolley anywhere?
