The Big iron!

Bit of a united plan today. I suggested to Vin that he goes and does the weekend shop in Tesco's where he is really good at whizzing round at a fast rate, and i would stop in and do the ironing. It was a good job actually because it has got that done and we are now not looking at the great big pile of bedding in the extension all weekend because we never do it at the weekend. Don't know why, just never have.
So he helped me fold it all before he went and all went to plan. he got home in nice time for our coffees, I had a cappuccino and he had a Kenco with a creamer milk disc.I really do have to say that the coffees from our machine are brilliant and are certainly equal to the ones you get in the Costa shops. i have now decided that if we ever win the Lottery i will have a house built with a porch all of the way round, stained glass windows in the front door, and a nice kitchen with a little coffee bar area off it like a mini Costa area. Dream on mrs Mc...
Thinking of our Delia forum today, because we have recently lost one of our members, a lovely lady who lived in Toronto. R.I.P. Jamps.

Tonight we are having:
Fishless fingers
Chips 200 grms
mushy peas for Vin and green beans for moi
Tartare sauce.

All Change...

We were going out omewhere today, and it just so happened that I had an item that I had ordered that needed to be returned to the Bon Marche so we decided to go to Maghull. I had offered to get Vin his coffee from Costa so uit wasn't too much of a hardshi0p!
We were also waiting for a delivery from the firm that brings my Aranesp injections but vin rang them up and they weren't coming till lunchtime so off we went out. It'a only about a fifteen minute journey over there and it's a nice run anyway. We park in the centre where you have to pay 70p., but it was quite busy, he did get a space after a few mins though. I went off to the Bn Marche shop and Vin went off to get the ticket.
It turned out that I was an absolute age in the shop..some poxy woman was in front of me bringing back about a dozen items, and the women behind the till were having big trouble sorting it all out, so i was at least ten mins waiting if not longer. Vin had got the ticket, been for his stuff from B&Ms and I was still waiting! grrr. When I was finally dealt with it was only a couple of minutes. Oh well you win some you lose some.
That done we went to the Costa, for a breather and our coffees. i had an Americano and Vin had a flat white which looked beautiful.
Back to the car, and because it was free parking because both ticket machines were broken we went to the card factory shop. I wanted a bereavement card and a birthday card and they had some nice ones quite reasonable too. In the end a good morning.
Funny when we got home..Vin had left a note on the door to the Aranesp man to say if we were out to leave them over the road at the chemist..but there was a note from a courier for QVC (who else) !  then Vin met the Aranesp coming up the path so that was good.
Tonight we are having:
Something from the freezer
baby new potatoes
remaining veggies from the fridge
Sauce with mushrooms

At Home..

At home today mainly because we had bits and bobs to do and also the weather is rubbish, cloudy grey and generaly not that nice.No sitting out for morning coffee for us today.
Did the bedding and the floors and other bits. made a chiropody appointment again for the 5th june,Vin sorted out some of his papers. Quite a bit done really.
Very sad on our Delia food forum today, because one of the nicest members has died.It's strange how a bunch of people that have never met (most of them) can become so close in that there is real feeling of sorrow when a member goes. You share the highs and the lows, births deaths and marriages and divorces in some cases . We have been on here for around eleven years now and a lot has happened in that time. R.I.P. Jamps XXYou will be missed by all of us.
Little Rusty wasn't too bad this morning only woke Vin up at half past seven so he got a bit more sleep. She has changed what she does since bobby went, it's odd really but I suppose she is top dog! now...
Tonight we are having:
pasta with a sauce of some sort..maybe cheese
Butternut squash and asparagus.
A bit of garlic bread for Vin.

In a Spin..

Must have got up too quickly this morning because it has taken me ages for the ear thingy to settle dow. got there in the end though.  poor Vin was woken up at half past five this morningwith Rusty miaowing in his face for food.! She seems to have taken over from little Bobby who used to do the waking up duty. Rusty hasn't quite got it yet though as half past five is a bit early, at least Bobby used to leave it to about eightish!
So he was up early,but he came back to bed and didn't wake me up bless him!
We had decided to go over to Ormskirk this morning to get some fishless fingers etc., and it was a reasonable day so off we went. Seemed strange to be making that journey because the last time we went there was to take Bobby Aaah.
Went to the park at the back of M&S and through to the Holland and Barratt. they had one packet leftand were expecting a new delivery today wouldn't you know it. so we got those and some frozen meatless sausage rolls. Since we had paid a bit for the parking we then went into M&S for our veggies for the week. I do like their veg but you know they are more expensive..but that doesn't matter. Got some nice things including some really nice gluten free bread which I had for my lunch.  Off to morrisons down the road then for our coffees, black ones because the machine is broken. Suited me because I have black ones anyway but Vin usually has a latte or some such. Very cheap there wonder it was busy.  Bought a few things to make up the five pounds you have to spend to get the free parking, then home by about one thirty.
Tonight we are having:
Escalope of some sort,
veggies from M&S
hollandaise sauce
Baby cornish new potatoes

One Week Today...

She was a lovely cat..loved her little garrden and she is out there now, buried in the sunshine where she loved to be. R.I.P. Little bobby.
Bank holiday monday today, no-one doing much. Vin did the barrel this morning, put the plants in that we bought at Dobbies the other day, and took out the daffodils that were in there from the Spring. they were supposed to be dwarf ones but these grew very leggy and tall actually. it was nice this morning and we had our coffee out in the sunshine on the patio with little Rusty keeping us company. We actually now have a little row of cats buried over by the fence. Bobby the last one, Lucy and Inkey you never forget them, and you remember all of their littlee characters and things they did. Lucy and her lolloping run sort of sideways, Inkey and her little tongue which she used to stick out when she got hot or lay by the fire. and Bobby of course who would come up to you to have her head bumped and her chin tickled. Aaah!
It's gone very cloudy now looks very much like rain is in the offing.
Tonight we are having:
Pizza with mushrooms and cheese
Salad with baby plum tomatoes and avocado

potato salad for moi and hoisin noodle salad for Vin.

Tescos here We Come...Again!

Since Tescos are the only people who send us vouchers or coupons that is where we tend to go these days! Plus they send vouchers for money off things they know we buy. Extremely clever because it does draw you back. Plus there is a very nice Costa Coffee shop attached which is for us a big draw.
So this blowy and cool friday morning selves off to Formby  to get our weekend things. Wasn't too bad either, and the parking was right outside.
Armed with vin's usual list we went round quite quickly and got what we needed. Actually i was expecting it to be busy with it being a Bank holiday weekend but wasn't too bad.
Then we went for our Costas..found our nice spot by the window and it was very pleasant just sitting there. Wish I had some shares in that firm..must be making a fortune. Vin had a Soya milk latte and I had a medio Americano, and we shared half a pack of little shortbreads. mmmm Lovely.
Just had a minor panic here while typing this post. I shook my hand and my wedding ring flew off..had no idea where it went and couldn't see it either,so banged on the window for Vin to come and have a look. He is really good at finding things. Trouble is my rings are so loose now thatthey jangle about on m y fingers and are in danger of falling off. Happens when I dry my hands too, I need a tighter band to hold it on. probably need to go to a proper jewellers and get something tighter. Anyway he came up and started searching, and then I spotted it on the carpet near where I had put the chair so that was ok in the end.
Tonight we are having:
Waitrose cheese and onion pasty
Green beansand mushrooms for Vin.
Waitrose rice puddings.

Poor Janey XXXX

I feel really sorry for her today. She had the afternoon off her placem,ent and was going to the garage to have a test drive of the car she had been looking at which was a little Peugeot. She rang us when she had been there and liked the car, so went in to seal the deal. Then she rang back a short while later to say that the receipt would say.. "For spares or repair" !  Very odd. She knew it wouldn't have a warranty on it, and there was a long conversation about this with her dad..who it has to be said wasn't keen on the deal anyway! and he actually spoke to the guy selling it, but he wouldn't budge. Wouldn't even put "sold without warranty" either. So in the end a very disappointed Jane walked away from it. So it still left the problem of her car with dodgy brakes, which need repair and a very dejected daughter. Poor kid..i suppose she had got herself all geared up to getting the car but the stupid sods in the garage lost that sale. She doesn't have time to go round garages looking for cars, she has placement and her work at Ticketmaster and no time off, and a placement where she doesn't like the girs there. Oh Dear!!!
We have told her to get the brakes fixed and then she will at least have a means of transport till August, but she has gone home to licjk her wounds I think.
 Meanwhile back at the ranch.. i did a pikle of ironing this morning while Vin went off to Formby to get a hair cut. He rang up to say they were all full and he wasn't waiting so he came home in a mood too. Grrrr..two of the family in moods !!!
then we went round to  vote. One for local elections and the other for the European ones. The euro voting paper was a mie long, can't even remember half of the candidates on it. way and another it has been a horrible day and a horrible week with poor little Bobby having to be put down on Monday. That was just awful..and I think Jane doesn't realise just how upsetting that was.
Tonight we are having:
Quorn fillets in a white wine and herb sauce with mushrooms
carrots and butternut squash,
Squashed new potatoes.

Two Cuties !

This picture was taken in September 1996, not long after we got bobby from the Freshfields Animal Rescue over the way. It was on an old polaroid photo...remember those! and our Jane was about just thirteen,. bobby was about ne here so we have had her for around 181/2 years. Jane is now nearly 31 and is doing Radiography in Manchester! Doesn't time fly?
Beautiful sunny day today, with blue skies and pretty cloudless. we took ourselves off to Dobbies this morning to get some pklants for the barrel in the front garden. At the moment it has the remaining stems of daffodils in it, and is looking a bit worse for wear. he says he will probably do them tomorrow.
So, we had a good look round and selected some bronze coloured daisy like plants and two trays of other plants to fill in the spaces.
of course we went for our free coffees, lovely and quiet it was too today, loads of room. we did sit inside because it was  a bit breezy outside.             Then we had a mooch about I bought some little jars of pear chutney which we both like, and a few other things. Then home for lunch.. Very nice.
Tonight we are having:
Pasta bake with a cheese sauce and mushrooms,
garlic bread,

The day After...

This was as close as it got really, Bobby and Rusty in the garden on the steps. Bobby is now buried just over to the right of here, alongside Lucy and Inkey.  A little row of much loved cats.
There was a horrendous thundeer and lightning storm last night, and I didn't like the idea of her being out in it, I know it's silly but it doesn't seem right.  Gosh we miss her, she was such a home loving catty that she was always around somewhere in the house, and wherever we were she would be near. God Bless little Bobby XXXX
Jane rang up yesterday afternoon and said that she had spotted a car online, and it was just over the road from the quik-fit garage where she goes with her car to get things done. It is a Peugeot 206 in silver, three door and just under £2000. Vin had a good look online at it, and it does ook like a good car. In nice nick, and has just 42,000 miles on the clock. She had been to have a look at it last night on her way home, but didn't have a test drive because it was rush hour traffic and she didn't want to test drive in that. It was locked in with some other cars anyway. She has just rung up again now on her way home from work and is going to the garage to have a word with them abut a test drive etc.  Hope it's still there she will be gutted if it's gone but I don't think it will be.
Went to Waitrose this morning, to get our veggies for the week. had a lovely free latte, and got our stuff plus a few extras as we always do from there!!
Tonight we are having:
Goat's cheese and cranberry escalopw
baby jersey royals,
carrots and broccoli
hollandaise sauce.

R.I.P. Bobby..(Robyn)

We3 had to make the saddest of journeys today. We both had been worried about Bobby for some time, and certainly during the last week her health had deteriorated to such an extent that she was barely getting round. The poor little thing was so thin she was just skin and bone, and you could feel all her bones through her flesh. She was walking round, eating and using her cat litter tray, but it was like it was getting too much of an effort.
She was on our knees yesterday but she couldn't seem to get comfy, and it was almost painful to stroke her. Rusty was due to go to the vets sometime soon for her injection, so I said to Vin last night that we needed to take Bobby.
He took her outside into the garden this morning before we went, because she absolutely loved her little garden, and she had a little bit of a walk round but he said there was no energy there. So, we kind of knew what was coming this morning although meither of us liked to say.
Mr Dixon saw Rusty first and gave her the injection she needed and some more tablets, then he looked at Bobby who was so good. he examined her all over, very thoroughly, and said she was severely dehydrated, anaemic and had quite a large tumour in her stomach area. So, the inevitable was that it was time for her to be put to sleep. Horrible...but you never want your cat to suffer, and we didn't think she would have lasted much longer anyway. Mr Dixon said that it was the right thing to do really.  Bobby sort of lay down on the table, and he shaved her leg, then an injection of high dose anaesthetic, and she was gone almost straight away. No movement, and really really peaceful.
it was like she had gone to sleep. I'm so glad we were both there for her at the end, she deserved that.  We have had her about 18years, and she has been a real character. A beautiful cat, and she will be sorely missed.

Vin is lifting one of the flags in the garden for her, which is nice because she loved her garden, rarely went far from it, and above all she loved the sunny spots. I'm so glad she got to go out there one last time this morning.
I hope you are in catty Heaven little Bobby..XXXX We all miss you Loads already. XXXXXXXX

Coffee on the Patio!!

For the very first time this year we sat outside on our bench for our morning coffees. very nice it was too. Sunglasses on, sunshade for moi and the birds tweeting! lovely.Blue skies and vapour trails from the planes overhead, beautiful. Even little Bobby and Rusty came out to join us too. very sociable.
Vin went off to tescos this morning for the weekend things, and not long after he had gone Jane rang up, from...yep..Tescos. She was in buying bread, cheese and a cffee on the way out.So we had a nice little chat, then she went because she was at her car. Only, to ring back in a little while to say that she was in Iceland on the way home because she had forgotten her cheese! said it was my fault because she had been rabbiting on to me and forgotten to get her cheese!
She rang off and by then Vin was home, so unpacked his purchases and went out for our coffees.
Got a bit of a perplexing letter this morning. handwritten..and from Aintree hospital, a blood test form and asking me to go for a blood test a.s.a.p, wonder where that came from? I have only just rung for the renal appointment on Thursday s it can't be to do with that. Very odd!
Tonight we are having:
Chicken style nuggets (Quorn)
A pack of egg fried rice
A few sauteed mushrooms.
Sweet and sour sauce.

Bits and Pieces...

Well i still have the dizziness which I've had since the beginning of the week. Mornings aren't too good, I get up and the room is spinning so it takes me about a quarter f an hour to settle down. The day is not too bad but my balance is rubbish. like being drunk without the alcohol! :)
Vin rang up the surgery for me this morning and got an appointment for twenty to twelve so went over for that. Thankfully the Dr was downstairs, because they have a horrible spiral staircase up to the first floor there, and I hate it. Got in about five past twelve after a wait, and LET Vin go in with me, that is a concession believe me because he doesn't usually go in to appointments with me at all. He's too nosy!
Dr was very nice..took the blood pressure which was very good, probably due to the loss of wweight, and had a look in my ears which were ok. Said it was Labrynthitis which we knew anyway, and the Dr we spoke to on Tuesday morning said that too. Given me some more tablets and said it should last about a week.
Loveely sunny day today, bright sun outside, and even the little cats were out in the back garden this morning. Bobby loves a sit in the sunshine. Vin said she was in the front garden this morning, he was out cleaning the glass on his car, and had left the porch door open a tiny bit, and she had nudged it open and got into the front. So he kept an eye on her and she had a bit of a nosey but got a bit scared by the little bus going past. Not a bad thing really.

Tonight we are having:
Fishless fingers,
Mushy peas for Vin and a few carrots for moi,
Chips!! 200 grms.

been very cloudy all day today, but now I come up here to type this the sun has come out and it is warming up nicely. Typical!
We did the bedding this morning, overdue by a couple of days because I was in it, but I got up this morning and it was done. Dried in the drier though because it didn't look too promising, again..typical. it would have dried outside now.
Not much going n today, Vin took my money off to tesco  this morning,he needed some veggies and a few things that we had run out of like cat litter. can't do without that.The little ones wouldn't like it!
Oh dear..can't expect these two to go outside can we!!!  got a letter from the appointments dept to ring for a renal ne today, so just rung. Sept 15th. Chappie on the phone very abrupt, couldn't get off the phone quick enough.
Tonight we are having:
Not sure exactly. Maybe a flan for Vin

Under the Weather!

Missed my posts for a couple of days because I have been a bit under the weather with an ear problem. Woke up one morning with a totally dizzy feeling and the room was spinning. Went off though and was ok during the day...But...the next morning it came back with a vengeance and was horrible..and it didn't go away. Vin rang the surgery and was told someone would ring back after morning surgery. Which she did, a very nice Dr with a European accent maybe Spanish and said it was Labrynthitis. She would prescribe some tablets to help,and Vin went over for them but the script wasn't ready it would be faxed over to the chemist over the road. Little time later the phone went and the chemist said it was there and ready. not bad eh! A  little tiny tablet which you put into the roof of your muth and it dissolves..well that's a first. It works too, reduces the dizziness and and settles it down.
Lovely sunny day here which is nice. vin was thinking of washing the bench down, so if the weather keeps nice we could maybe sit out with our coffees in the morning. We haven't used it yet, because while it has been sunny it has also been quite chilly with the wind effect.
Tonight we are having:
not sure really, depends what I feel like. maybe cottage pie with a little cheese on top of it.

Tops and Toes...

Didn't go out today, we don't usually on a monday unless there is something specific to go out for, so it was a bit of a daay of doing things. 
I needed my hair colouring so Vin did that for me this morning. He does a really good job of it too,I just have the roots done where it is going grey.  not an outstanding colour just the dark brown it always was.
Jane did hers at the weekend and then went and got hers cut, she sent me an email of her from her phone isn't she lovely.
She did some cooking yesterday too..glad to see she has learned something!
The other thing I did this morning was to get the nail varnish off my tootsies..all nine of them,! i have an appointment at the chiropodists on Wednesday, and they din't like varnish on your toes so it had to go. Put it on again afterwards.  Also have an appointment at the hearing aid place on Thursday too so it's one of those weeks.
Tonight we are having;
Pizza with mushrooms and cheese and pepperf or Vin
green salad  with avocado and baby yellow plum tomatoes
Potato salad for moi and a potato salad with vinaigrette for Vin.

Hurry Home!

Off we went to Tesco this morning to get our weekend thingies. Vin said very clearly before we went that it would be a quick whizz round and back for our coffee so it was a rush past Costa because we went for one yesterday. he did go later and get a £20 Costa card with some of our winnings from things though! (  I think he just likes seeing the girl behind the counter!)
The quick whizz round the store turned into quite a biggish shop in the end  I ended up with £55 worth of stuff, some stock up items though.
Got some petrol on the way out, he had a voucher for 2p off a litre burning a hole in his pocket, and that was £40 so spent quite a bit in the end today.
Jane rang up just after we got home, she was on her way to get her hair cut. She still has her cough, and rang the GP  the day before yesterday and got an appointment for a week on Friday!!!! What is going on these days?  we said go to a walk in centre but she said the only one near there was the one the students use and you have to wait for hours. very blowy today, nice bright sunshine but the breezey wind is making it cool.
Tonight we are having:
Not sure exactly!
something with the remaining Jersey Royals sauteed and..something out of the freezer.
Any remaining veggies left in the fridge.

One of Those Lucky Days...

 Got up reasonably, and the plan was to go over to maghull..have a bit of a mooch and go for a Costa coffee.  It's quite a nice drive and the traffic is light and it's a reasonable place to look round. First thing that arrived this morning was Vin's memory! not his actual memory but the one for his little netbook that he had bought two years ago from Maplins and had gone faulty. They guarantee it for a year, but it was well over that and it did have a ten year guarantee on it so he had sent it back to the manufacturers. My Vin is one of those rare people who keep receipts for EVERYTHING so that he still had it. This was one of the sti[ulations that you have to send proof of purchase, wh8ich of course he had. Wonder how many people could say that! Anyway that came back and he was well pleased because they had sent him a new one!
While I was getting ready to go out he was out doing something with his car and another postman arrived we get two posts now..the Royal mail and TNT..don't know what that is about! Then when he came back inside there was a parcel on the doorstep. It was some stuff that I had ordered from Bon Marche in their sale. A shirt/blouse and two nice bras. I nipped upstairs to try the blouse on and didn't really like it. Very thin material and there was something bunched up on the shoulder. It was only when I took it off that I saw it had a camisole underneath it!¬ Too faffy to put on, and we were gping to Maghull where there is a Bon Marche so I decided to take it back.
Which we did. Parked in the square and I went in there to take it back and he went into B&Ms to get a few things like cat food etc., I told him to look for toothpast..Aquafresh in tubes which we don't seem to be able to get anywhere. None of the supermarketys have it and indeed they didn't either.  I went into Superdrug and they didn't have it either1 so off we went for a Costa. Vin had a nice Toffee nut latte and I had a medium Americano. Got a lovely comfy sofa right at the back where we sat for about forty minutes apparently just chatting.
Back to the car, and Vin said he would just nip over to the Boots on the other side of the road to see if they had the toothpaste and he was back in a couple of mins with some. On offer too! three for the price of two. So..a really good lucky day today.

Tonight we are having:
Quorn fillets with a white wine and mushroom sauce
Carrots and asparagus,
baby Jersey Royals.

Looked Promising...

Then it all went downhill. The day started off very bright and sunny this morning. The cats woke Vin up early so he got up to feed them and get our coffees.
When we had got up and had our breakfast, he went off to block up the hole in the entry door so that rusty can't get round the front.  So that is what he did. he also took the ccover off the bench in the garden so that he could wipe it down and maybe wax it. What happened was that it started to...rain..typical! You just can't plan anything in this country given the british weather. No wonder that the English are so obsessed with talking about the weather.  At the time of typing this it is now pouring down. A beautiful Spring Day...Not !!
Tonight we are having:
Escalope with gruyere cheese
Baby jersey Royals
Green veggies, beans peas and mange tout.
Sauce of some sort.

Back for Coffee...

Lovely sunny Spring day here today, had a nice surprise from John and Ann today, with a letter, and a photo album in it. John had included a notebook with it, and he had written on every page what each photo was. The one on the first page was the most fantastic one of him taken by his son in law, and lots of family ones too.  Will peruse them tonight.
We took my money off to Sainsbury's in Crosby this morning, all we needed were the veggies for the week, so didn't intend to stop for long. You only get  1/2 free parking otherwise you have to pay so it's a quick rush round and grab jobby. Got a nice selection of veggies and home in good time for our morning coffees. Vin had a Kenco with milk and I had a Carte noir cafe crema. Very nice.
Did a bit of computering after coffee and Ruth had posted online that someone had bought her a Muzz Buzz. I replied  "What is a Muzz Buzz" quick as a flash got a reply it's an expensive coffee sold at intersections on the roads from stands  Vin looked them up later and found they are a franchise in Perth and are spreading. Sounds good.
Little Rusty has been a bit naughty the last couple of days. She has taken to going under the back door and then round to the front and sitting on the doorstep!
Naughty girl...stay at home in yur basket! The front doorbell went after lunch and it was our next door neighbour and Rusty had been in her front room!!! getting cheeky now as well!!
Tonight we are having:
Quorn cottage pie with gravy
Mushrooms and green veg with carrots

Bank Holiday Weekend..

Can't you tell. grey skies and a very cool breeze blowing. hardly a sit out in the garden sort of day really. In fact we haven't had the cover off the bench yet this year.  Vin was looking at his diary and he says that it seems that it was much the same last year too. maybe it will warm up for the next one in about two weeks time.
Didn't gop out, but we never do on a Bank Holiday, so stayed in and did bits and pieces. That involves me catching up on the computer and Vin sorting out his papers and doing the Monday crossword.  We are still having fires so he did the fireplace this morning in case it goes cooler later on which it probably will.
Grrr...Just broken a nail! Why is it that you just get your nails looking halfway decent that you go and break one. Not too bad though, just a little break and I've managed to file it off.
The garden is looking lovely at the moment, there is a clematis bush between us and our neighbours on the fence and it is in full bloom at the moment, doesn't last though, so by the time the weather warms up it will have lost its flowers.
Really pretty, and a mass of blooms for a short time then they drop off.
Back garden in the sunshine..not at the moment I might add but maybe in the future eh!
Tonight we are having:
Pizza with mushrooms and cheese and peppers for Vin
Green salad with baby plum tomatoes and avocado
potato salad for moi and a Morrocan potato salad for Vin.

Busy friday...

Mostly because it is another Bank Holiday weekend of which we seem to  have a lot these days. We tok my money off to Tesco's today, because we needed things for the weekend..not specifically Nank Holiday things but normal things. Vin had a look at the vouchers before we went but the only one we had was for £10 off £60. I said there was no way I was going to spend that much !
got everything on our list, and some extras and ended up spending £57 !!! Yep Tescos did quite well from me today.
Of course...we had to stop off at the Costa on the way out!! Yes of course we did. Vin used one of the cards he had, and I had a very nice Americano and he had a Caramello with soy milk which looked gorgeous. It had a deep frothy top with a caramel drizzle all over the top of it which overflowed the cup and looked really good. i wish I had one of those smart phones I would have taken a pic of it it looked so good.
Quite a lot of news today, the main item was the sentencing of Max Clifford the publicist, who had been sentenced to eight years for sexual assaults on women and gorls in the seventies and eighties.  Showed no remorse at all and was arrogant throughout.  The second was the sentencing of a woman judge to sixteen months for perverting the couse of justice.  She was one of the first black woman judges and a "role model" for young black women apparently.  How hath the mighty fallen eh!
Tonight we are having:
Cheese and onion pasties from Waitrose
Any left over vegetables
Rice puddings from Waitrose.
