    What has happened to the forum?

    Does anyone know what happened to Martin and his orchard? x

    In the kitchen

    when I was a child and learning to bake with my mother I used to measure (exactly) by eye very often. (I'd cut butter/cheese or measure flour/sugar by spooning it on to the scales, and it would be exact!) My mum used to say "you'll never get married". Apparently it was a saying/old wives tale. My mum was right I've never been married! x

    Vet School update

    Well done Lewis. I have followed your progress from afar over the years, but not your blog, yet! Wasn't it you who bought an orchard/walled garden many years ago? Whatever happened to that?

    I had this problem, converting cups to grams. I bought some measuring cups! ta da! problem solved! (someone suggested this to me, it was a lightbulb moment!) x

    Canal Boat Holiday

    I mentioned this last night to my OH. He wasn't keen on paying the mooring fees, and I guess all the upkeep. I will look into it myself. It's a beautiful boat, but needs a lot of work. Reconfiguring, electrical work. We have friends who could help. I think OH finds it difficult to think about because of the ties with his dad.

    I miss having eggs from my own chickens. They really are the best. I made lemon curd when I had chickens. So nice x

    Canal Boat Holiday

    Oh gosh, i must have a picture somewhere. I'm not sure I will be able to find though. Abpopa is Russian for Aurora. Abpopa was a Russian ship https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_cruiser_Aurora&ved=2ahUKEwj8_cag7Y3gAhUxXRUIHW_mAi8QFjAnegQIAhAB&usg=AOvVaw0bbhw8nBotCksCpxF5E36Q We don't know where Abpopa is. OH could ask his brother but he isn't interested. I think it makes him too sad. When their dad died he left it to both of them. After a few years they agreed to sell. OH's brother agreed to organise. A year later OH asks where it's up to. Brother says "Oh I changed my mind". OH agreed to keep it as long as brother pays all bills. As far as I know he's got it moored up and moves it to avoid paying marina fees. I wonder if he's even taxed it. It make a me sad as we loved going on the boat. I doubt it is properly looked after now. 😥

    We've made 3 Ottolenghi recipes this week. Aubergine with yoghurt curry sauce, with a side of houmous and slow cooked tomatoes with a caramelised ginger and chilli topping. Baked potatoes with gorgozola and spinach. We used St Agur, because that's what we had in. Beef meatballs with celeriac. All were from his SIMPLE book and yummy, OH particularly liked the aubergine.

    I haven't, but I'll give them a go. I love a detective series. Thank you x

    Anyone claimed PPI?

    My OH did it and got thousands and thousands back. we think it was in connection with his mortgage, which was paid off. He didn't question it and just took the cash. I've never done it. I don't think I'd be able to remember all the accounts that I've had at all. I'm still curious and thinking about it though.

    Oh my! i was feeling nostalgic about my boating days and googled the boat (which OH still half owns but we haven't seen for years) I came across this old post from 2008. Wow! time flies. I may have to have a word with OH about the boat. I feel we should visit her and check up at least.

    Burns Night.... but not.

    A hobbit recipe book! I will have to Google that! My appetite is rubbish. OH took me out for a special meal before Christmas. it was multi courses, by the time it got to the main I was too full to eat it. I would have been happy to stop after the canapes! On a Sunday we sometimes break the courses up over the day, do we might have a starter at 1, dinner at 2, dessert at 6, and cheese at 8, or something like that! I like the idea of a hobbit day, but each meal would have to be small. I'm sure I could manage 7 small meals.

    Daftest pet name?

    We have cats called Lexi and Loxi, but they get called Inspector and Boxi, amongst many other names Inspector because she is always inspecting, and Boxi because it rhymes with Loxi and she often sleeps on a box!
