Late arriving, sorry, cooking duties came first.

Have about 30mins before the kitchen timer goes yet again.... & the next cooking marathon starts.

Now to see what's what. J.

What's the weather like in your area?

It was quite a bit colder first thing this morning. Still quite windy so got some washing out to blow. WManchester.

Then it rained & the wind is increasing even more again. J.

Me too re a jasmine. I just repot mine every Feb/march & sometimes feed it, but not very often... Didnt know about it needing to be cool, although mine is in a barely heated spare room on a W facing sill.

Latest discovery Aldi sour cream & chilli crisps......

Right, am off too. Wonder if I can keep Mrs B's boys on? Must hide the remote. J.

See, I knew if I waited long enough I wouldnt be the only pc duffer around here- no offence meant CG. 'How to' & basic Clait didnt teach me fancy stuff on a pc.

OH has just said that he quite likes his android phone.   The muttering that has been going on.... Am very glad that the battery for my basic camera, yes folks, phone is still going fine & so need to change yet.....

Off to finish cooking, may be back later, but we have a winebox....... J.

Advice re using the chillies sounds fine to me. Dont try leaving any seeds in though or you'll combust no matter how mild the chilli is supposed to be.

Well am enjoying 'kindleing'. Shall get that cheap 3 book series I think. Must investigate what to do with things once been read- hmm. That's where charity shops come in normally. There is some sort of 30day option, almost like a library which may suit......

Sticking to simpler food again. Fish & vegs tonight. May do a cheese sauce for over it all. Pud -OH has found a wondrerful greek yoghurt with honey. Yes you can add honey to ordinary yoghurt, but keep it simple folks....

Will be having our NY meal tomorrow as daughter working & OH going back to 'little house' ready for work on Wed.

I was about to 'kindle' too, when I thought I'd just see if all back to normal......

Geoff my case & light turned up t'other day. Have downloaded various free samples to see if what I'd want/like.

That's my quota of 'treats' done for today- 1 piece of cake & 2 chocolate biscuits!

Barely been light all day up here. Have some compacted bits of a border than I know has clay sub-soil, but in 29yrs here I've never seen puddles! J.

The rain has actually stopped here after chucking it down all night. Large puddles visible on compacted bits of a border- dont ever remember seeing that happen ever before in 29yrs here! J.
