HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Hubby is feeling better this morning. Courtesy car has come. Same size car but smaller engine, manual gearbox, no safety pack, no winter pack. No idea how long it will take to put a new rear on the old one.

Fridge full, shopping done, wine at 4c outside at the moment.

Have a good day folks.

Plant I. D please

Looks like a tree peony.  New leaves will come from the terminal buds in Spring. I find the leaves go brown but hang on for most of the winter, When they go crinkly, I carefully take them off.

I have the same problem with cooked sausages in the fridge. How that mouse manages to open the fridge door, I'll never know. I'm not  buying most of the food for the party until tomorrow morning. Easier to keep him off it then. He can go and prep an area for fireworks while I cook the pork for hot pork baps with stuffing and bramley apple sauce.  All the drinks except red wine are outside cooling down. Anyone know what temp it will be tomorrow? When I was 40 , it snowed. Most of the family didn't turn up. We chilled the champagne by lying it in the snow. Shame there were only five of us to drink six bottles of the vintage stuff.

Looks like a feed in Spring would be good. The leaves look like they have a mineral deficiency, possibly magnesium. Something with a wide spread of nutrients like seaweed meal .

I have to keep him off the trifle. Its hard because he's a custard lover. Pudding is not pudding without custard. Either made from Birds powder or M&S madagascan vanilla deluxe custard. he's not fussy. He'll even eat tinned ambrosia custard.

Courtesy car coming tomorrow. Himself is a bit sore. The claims handler has logged it, if it gets worse he will go for physio.  The claims handler has seen the photos of the damage and said that sometimes they call ambulances for people with less damage than that. At least the lorry driver is insured, no problems there.

Kitchen floor is washed, and half a trifle made. custard to go on tomorrow. I just have to excavate the living room table in order to put a buffet on it.

 Fizz at 4, food at 6, fireworks at 8.

Hubbys back and neck seem to be OK this morning. I gave it a good rub with ibuprofen gel last night.

Waiting for the claim handler to ring back.

Your worst Christmas present!

My ex bought me one of those metal roasting tins with a lid. He wrapped it up . I unwrapped it  expecting the proper present inside. Oops.  That was it.  What compounded it, it was in front of all my family. But it means you can make roast dinners like my mum does, he said.

It cost him a double row of pearls with a diamond and sapphire clasp. I picked it out at the International Spring jewellery fair in Birmingham, three months later.

Where are they? I know there is a group taking photographs of derelict steel and cutlery works around Sheffield. Very sad to see what were busy places, standing abandoned.
