Good day to you all, too dark to check outside but probably damp. Carol has just used the word "murk".
Exciting day here in Happy Valley as we launch our Recipe Book, produced in the village, from family recipes, by 5 people. 2 cooks, 1 photographer ( who used to photograph for Delia Smith and others), 1 technical expert, a whizz on the computer, and yours truly. As coordinator I did a lot of shopping and tasting. The end result looks really professional and yesterday we were interviewed by the local press,which also appears today. The launch is in the shop with some tastings. Can't wait. Just in time for Christmas. Should top the bestsellers list by then.
WE shouldn't be embarrassed by our sartorial efforts of years ago. They were fun and attractive in their day. Can you remember what our parents wore, coming out of the war and austerity? Today's dumbed down fashions, if that's what you call them, can't hold their head up either. What's wrong with a bit of flamboyance, which in my case included kipper ties, huge lapels and Oxford Bags. Translation available for the younger members, but definitely no photos.
