    If it works for you - balanced. Never sure about bananas - maybe cover them with inulin. Avocado - nice load of fat there. I always leave the skin on my chicken.

    Thank you - I didn’t know where it was going. I think another of the four gentlemen - orchids perhaps - Chrysanthemums and plum blossom seem a bit too far at present

    Thank you. Going to switch to orchid practice - well that’s the thought at present but then I have been cleaning the oven and probably high as a kite.

    Waiting for a decision on mandatory mask wearing for oven cleaning in the Dark and Dangerous North? (Are you devolved yet? - hard to keep up)

    I just copy then press my finger onto the ipad screen and select paste. I do have to reduce the image size first though, using an app called “image size”.

    Mask wearing is only by appointment and we don’t do those sort of fancy southern things. Not devolved yet but we have all joined forces (Cumberland, North Yorkshire and Northumberland) to build a giant mobile saw in case that crazed Jimmy Cranky in Sturgeonborough get’s her way.

    8.40. Overslept. FBG 6.1.
    Had to get up in the night. That has become unusual so must be doing something right.
    MrSlim says "Not long now" whatever that means.

    Good Watercolur of this lovely bird. We have many along the River Trent and the Canal, seldom go a bike ride without seeing that flash of iridescent light skimming the water.

    You are fortunate to have that view on your doorstep.

    That is a lovely painting - is it a kingfisher. It looks very like a little bird we saw at Gooderstone Water Gardens last year.
